Condolences to the Tasaka ohana. I don't know any of their family, but the passing of their Guri Guri founder, Henry, is poignant and I wish the best for them.
Guri Guri was the invention and creation of Henry Tasaka's dad, Jokichi, way back in the day. My family (mom's side) comes from Maui and though they've all relocated to Oahu in the years since, it kind of hits home a bit for me. The way Henry kept the tradition, the recipe, the heart of what their family does is rare these days. I hope Guri Guri carries on and brings smiles to the world forever.
