I am sorry to see that senator Daniel Akaka has passed away. I had the chance to meet him at Jerry Byrd's first Ho'olaulea and always thought of him as a fair and thoughtful senator.
Alan, I wish you well during this mourning period and I hope your quest to get a Cracker Barrel on Oahu has been met with success :0).
This his farewell address in the senate 12/12/12:

RIP Senator Akaka, may an even greater paradise await you than the one you knew and represented here. And condolences to Alan and all his 'ohana.
