By George F. Lee, Star-Bulletin



Noelle Tamashiro, left, and Ariel Ferreria pay respect to the souls of the deceased following the Hawaii Toro-Nagashi of lantern floating ceremony at Keehi Lagoon last night. Below, Kazu Auberson of Switzerland bows with folded hands as Shinso Ito, the spiritual leader of the Shinnyo-en Buddhist sect, begins the Hawaii Toro-Nagashi of lantern floating ceremony. There were also prayers for peace and harmony.
