I moved out here in Utah in August of 1994, since then, there have been so many deaths of our old members of our original Sunset 12 Provo Tongan Ward. There have been many who have passed on since then, such as my father. However, in remembrance of the young generation and the lives that were taken so soon, may they rest in peace and love and may their families be comforted for their sudden loss.
"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live"
Below if for our most recent loss...
Gone too soon and so young. The Luaki family has always been a close family to us, since our days living in good old Mapleton. Steve was like a brother to Mone and Jr during their days as Red and Blue devils. We were sadden by the lost of his younger brother Vou. With much respect to Vou lahi, our prayers go out to Janet and the family. We love you very much!
