There is no resting in peace for Buttons. What surfer goes to heaven to rest? Buttons has been resting enough lately, so much that you know he's doing 12-hour surfs with the boys for the next two thousand years …

Buttons passed away yesterday, so today is the second day of Buttons new life in Heaven. He arrived on Andy Iron's 3rd "re-birthday" up there and it's no doubt he stoked them all out. No longer in pain, Buttons is happier now than he's ever been. That's the promise. It's the rest of us stuck in this place on earth that are at a loss and feeling sad and trying to imagine a world, or a season on the North Shore, without him. But let's not forget: He's got many talented children who will carry on the Kaluhiokalani name, including a 17-year-old son many of you have never met who looks so much like his dad at the same age that you'd think you were in 1977: Same hair and everything. A Buttons Jr. And all his children are like that. They all have that Buttons gleam in their eyes.

What a blessing we all knew Buttons. What a blessing he loved us back.
