This week was a struggle for me since learning of the passing of a close friend of mine, Roxanne Hasegawa. We both worked in the news business on competing stations, but she was a good friend.

I felt like I was walking and talking in and through quicksand, but I kept pushing through using her memory of what they call in the sports world “playing hurt”.

She was very ill and did not ask for anything, for fear she would be a burden. I am glad that she is no longer suffering but am sad that she is no longer with us.

I will miss you my friend. Ia manuia lau malaga Rox. Gone too soon!
