The family of Benjamin K. Naki, Jr. (born 9/19/1951, died 3/3/2011), better known to most of us here on Molokai as “Benny Boy,” would like to thank all the family and friends who came to share in his final journey home to his heavenly father. Thank you to all of you for your words of comfort, monetary gifts, donations, but most of all for taking the time to share your memories with my mom and myself.
