Jess Foglesong Don signed picture last time September 24, 2016
 
My wife and I visited Uncle Don several times, and the last time we saw him, he autographed this picture, plus the one from 1969, when I saw him while on R&R from vietnam (see below) ... Don is relaxing with angels, family and friends in heaven!

Jesse Foglesong A Great Entertainer September 15, 2016
 

Don...40 years ago this December is when I first saw your show. ALL my 7 subsequent visits were planned around your being there. What a first-class showman you were, right up to my last seeing you in October, 2005! And what memories you leave with me! I still have the "Suck em Up" glass you drank from and left on your Cadillac dashboard when you drove my friend and me to a party back in 1967. I always cherished it as a souvenir and I will now drink from it on May 5 in a toast to your wonderful life. God speed, Don Ho, and a big Mahalo to you for all the joy you brought for 40 years to this haole gal from Chicago!

I have been seeing Don's shows since 1967 as a young airline stewardess. He would let us in "free" and waive the cover charge for his "Ho Harem" young ladies' group & we would be seated up front. I followed him thru the years from Duke's to the Ohana Beachcomber and his shows always held the magic of Aloha & Ohana. Many of us have returned thru the years bringing our grand children to see his show. Everyone loved Don and Don loved everyone. He and his music made Hawaii so special for so many. I'll raise my "Suck 'em Up" glass and sing "I'll Remember You". See you on May 5th.

When I was 13, in 1967, my parents got to meet in Hawaii for R&R when my dad was in the Air Force & stationed in Vietnam. My mom brought home the "Tiny Bubbles" album to me, AUTOGRAPHED. I was really taken with his music and nearly wore it out. My whole family loves the album and I am very sad for him to be gone. He was such an entertainer on television or his stage and so nice to his audiences. I hope it helps his family to know he was so well loved. His memory is carried close to the hearts of his fans all over the world. He'll be missed. Hawaii will be missing part of it's allure.

May God continue to bless Don and his family during this sad time. Hawaii and the world has lost a great entertainer and man. My father and I flew out to Nevada to see him perform in 1999. I went on my honeymoon in July of '05 to Waikiki just to see him in concert. You will be missed....

An irreplaceable living treasure has crossed over. Hawaii and the world is much better because of Don Ho. Thank you for all the joy and happiness you gave to others while you were here. You will be missed and we will treasure your time here always.

I was deeply saddend to hear about the passing of Don Ho,I have loved him for many years. My sister,Kay and I use to watch his show back in the 70s and long to be back in the islands. We did get a chance to see him perfom again in the late 90s on a trip back to Waikiki and it was the highlight of our trip! Kay passed away in 2001 from a long battle with cancer and requested his music at her own funeral,which was very uplifting and helped me to hear him sing "I'll Remember You" as we laid her to rest. My son who attnds UH and an aspiring musician and I were just talking about him on the last night that he performed as we were turning to park off Don Ho street and his music was playing on my IPOD in the car. Hawaii will never be the same without his beautiful velvety voice,he was aloha.

Several Years ago at his restaurant at Aloha Tower I cross paths with the gracious Don Ho. I commented on his Carhart Hat, telling him they say "Carharts are as tough as the men that wear them". I bought Don a cold micro brew which resulted in us spending the evening, drinking and chatting about music and the folks who make it so special in Hawaii. That evening will always be memory that makes me realize how great a place Hawaii is, and what special individual Mr. Ho was. APH

Aloha Don, Back when I first came to Hawaii I gave you one of my CD's 'Oahu Nights' after one of your shows. As a new Entertainer trying to find my way you gave me some great advice and I'll never forget you nor your last words; "Always remember kid if you love your people (the audience) they'll love you back!" Can't wait to get to the big club up there and see what you've done with the place! You are and always will be Mr. Aloha to me! Mahalo Don you will be missed! Tom Patrick

Many fans Where did the time go! September 15, 2016
 
When I was stationed in Hawaii in 1966-69 I lived in the Jungle back of Waikiki and we used to go to Duke's often to see Don Ho close his show. He used to end it with members from each service getting up and singing their Service Hymn. One night when we got to the Air Force Hymn he ask for me to come up and sing it with him. I did and I could tell he sang it with respect. In 1993 I returned to Hawaii and had to see the Don Ho show again. We got in line for... the quid-essential picture with Don and I mentioned the incident 35 years ago. He said "I think I remember that night". We laughed! Later that evening he mentioned that I was in the audience and had seen his show in 1968 and ask me to come up and sing with him again. I did and we sung "Suck'em Up". A wonderful man and entertainer.

Where did the time go... we went to Hawaii on our honeymoon over 30 years ago and saw your show (I can still remember the screaming crowds)...we took our kids to see you 20 years later and they remember being called up to the stage, each being handed a mike, and singing with you while sipping on a glass of gingerale...and we still have the pictures that we had taken with you after the show...Hawaii will never be the same... there will always be something missing!

On my visit to Hawaii last month, my sister and I attended the Don Ho Show where we had our pictures taken with him. Although he appeared frail, he still put on a great show for the crowd. Of course, we sang along with Tiny Bubbles. Back in the 60's or 70's (not sure of the date), my mother visited Hawaii and got an 8x10 photo of Don Ho kissing her. I now keep that picture with my album of my trip to Hawaii. My condolences to his family and friends. I feel sad for Hawaii.
