Well-wishers pay respects to former Hawaii senator

HONOLULU

After two days of services in Washington, Hawaii is saying aloha to the late Sen. Daniel Inouye.

Mourners, well-wishers and those simply paying respects were expected to crowd the state Capitol on Saturday night, where Inouye was expected to lie in state one day after being eulogized by President Barack Obama.

Obama, who arrived early Saturday in Honolulu for his annual Christmas family vacation, said during a service at Washington’s National Cathedral that Inouye’s presence during the Watergate hearings helped show him what could be possible in his own life.

The 88-year-old World War II hero and federal lawmaker of more than five decades died Monday.

A public visitation was to last seven hours starting with the arrival of Inouye’s casket and a short ceremony at 5 p.m. Hawaii time.

Others who have lain in state at the Capitol include Sen. Hiram Fong in 2004 and singer Israel Kamakawiwoole.

This man Daniel Inouye was a true Democrat that truely represented the people of this country unlike the Democrats of today that represent themselves.
