Kona loved being with his friends and remembering that huge smile, the spark in his eye as he had such laughter with them. He had the best sense of humor, witty and smart! He was highly intelligent, and a master at video games. He was a beautiful writer and spoke eloquently. He had a love for tennis. Kona also excelled in tennis while living in Brunei. He was a world traveler with his dad Jason, living and experiencing new worlds and cultures. Kona was fortunate to have a large family and he truly warmed our hearts. He is so loved and will be missed by all. How Do I Live and Breath Without You (our song) – I want to know! Love, Grand-A-Ma.
