Our Remembrance
HI MY NAME IS IMI. I AM FROM THE ISLAND OF KAUAI. ON THURSDAY APRIL 14, 2011 I LOST MY BROTHER GAVIN IKAIKA KALANI-MIGUEL TO SUICIDE. HE WAS ONLY 21 AND WOIULD HAVE MADE 22 ON THE 25TH OF APRIL. MY FIANCE KEALA FOUND HIM. BUT BY THE TIME HE GOT TO HIM HIS FACE WAS COLD AND HE WASNT BREATHING. HIS CHEST WAS WARM BUT ONLY BECAUSE HE HAD A JACKET ON. KEALA STAYED BACK AND TALKED TO HIS GIRLFRIEND TO FIND OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON. AND ACCORDING TO HER THEY WERE FIGHTING ALOT AND HES BEEN DRINKING ALOT. HE ALSO LEFT BEHIND A SUICIDE LETTER I GUESS A FEW DAYS PRIOR. WE HAVENT BEEN ABLE TO SEE IT. UH HE HAS ALSO BEEN THREATENING TO KILL HIMSELF BUT SHE NEVER TOOK HIM SERIOUSLY. I GUESS CAUSE HE DIDNT FOLLOW THRU WITH THE THREATS. WE WERE NEVER TOLD ABOUT THESE SITUATIONS.
WE FOUND OUT ABOUT HIM BEING SUICIDAL BECAUSE HIS GIRLFRIEND CALLED OUR SISTER AT WORK AND TOLD HER THAT HE WAS IN SUICIDAL MODE. SO SHE CALLED ME AND I HAD MY BOYFRIEND GO CHECK ON HIM AND HAVE HIM COME TO OUR HOUSE. BUT BY THE TIME HE GOT THERE IT WAS TOO LATE. HES HAVING A HARD TIME WITH THE NOT ONLY CAUSE HE FOUND HIM BUT THIS IS NOT THE FIRST PERSON THAT HE HAD SEEN OR FOUND DEAD AND COULD NOT HELP.
WE WILL TRULY MISS OUR LIL BROTHER!!
