Tonight's The Night
I subscribed because if this article! My brother Dennis was his best friend on the mainland. Edis taught him to glass when he was still a grom. We were devastated at his loss. My brother shared your incredible tribute this morning. He said he cried through the whole read. I made my profile pic that of my bride and I with Edis in late June of 1992 while on our Honeymoon. We drove to see him while on duty on the South Shore. It was the last lifeguard position on that side of the island. I don't recall the beach but it was a long stretch and no one was on the beach that day. That was the last time I saw Edis. He will always be loved and fondly remembered. I live in San Pedro which was a second home to him. My brother and Edis were glassing for Wayne Miyata when they became friends and were always together until Edis moved to O’ahu. Thank you for the insight into his death and continuance. It brought some much appreciated closure. Mahalo!
I'm Edis's sister Adela, I.just came across this article. There was so much confusion after his death, we knew some of what happened..but had no idea the details. I recently had a psychic reading and asked about Edis. For.some.reason something prompted me to.google him online, and found your article. Now I know what happened. I always wondered all this time, so thank you. Adela
Yes, I've always wanted to know the whole story, about how it all transpired. My dad was out of the country, and didn't want to believe of what happened, he was sure he was murdered, and went to Hawaii asking all kinds of questions. Recently my mom spread the rest of Edis's ashes in Croatia...were he was born. I had a psychic reading recently, and Edis came thru, he spoke of his death. He said "I'm fine & happy".But not sure what made me search him and come across your essay. But yes, closure for sure. I have alot of his poems and letters...he was always writing about his day. I believe your name came up somewhere in them. Thanks again
Wow. That was heavy.
Heavy and heartbreaking
