    John J. Walsh - Niche at Punchbowl, Honolulu, Hawaii
    When we arranged our father's funeral at Punchbowl, they asked us what he'd like on his brass plaque. We thought about his favourite expression, "Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy." We thought the cemetery officials would say no, but they couldn't have been more gracious. His niche is Section CT4-Q,row 200, site 201.
