Dick and Salesi

He’s home, AND he’s a media star on TV and in the Honolulu newspaper he worked for in the ’70s, now called the Star-Advertiser.

We are so grateful to Pamela Foster and the AED Institute for organizing the Celebration of Life that honored Dick today before boarding his Hawaiian Airlines flight home to Sacramento… exactly one month after he collapsed with a cardiac arrest in the Honolulu airport.

Dick got to meet, among others, Salesi Maumau, the Honolulu firefighter who administered chest compressions. (Salesi’s parents live in Elk Grove… it IS a small world after all.)

And here’s the video of the TV coverage from KHON2:
