Jon Abila was diving in a well-known surf spot near the Sheraton Waikiki when he told KHON something caught his eye.

Astronomers Reveal What Might Happen To Our Sun At Death

  Astronomers Reveal What Might Happen To Our Sun At Death The central hub of our solar system is expected to die in some 10 billion years.As we won’t be around to see the remains of our star, an international team of astronomers has predicted how the central hub of the solar system might change during after its death. They used a novel stellar, data-model and came to the conclusion that following its death, our sun will turn into a giant ring, one made up of an extremely bright envelope of interstellar gas and dust.

I was excited to see Ann Fielding, the snorkeler in "Blue Hawaii " (March, page 108). No matter where you are in Hawaii , you will find excellent snorkeling beaches all over. Remarkably, Morison said he lost the cross while surfing in Hawaii in 1966 .

The owner lost it while surfing and will now be reunited with it thanks to the internet.

It was a gold Celtic cross with the inscription, "Alexander Morison, 1932, St. Agnes Choir."

Curious about its original owner, Abila posted a photo to a Facebook group called Stolen Stuff Hawaii. Before long, someone responded.

Enter Alexander "Sandy" Morison Jr.

Morison told Abila the cross belonged to his late father, who received it as a teen singing for the choir at New York City's St. Agnes Church.

Remarkably, Morison said he lost the cross while surfing in Hawaii in 1966. The California man said he'd taken the cross from this mom's jewelry box and was wearing it when a catamaran hit him and the chain broke.

"I thought, 'Oh my God, I not only took the cross from my mom, but I just lost it,'" Morison recalled.

"I just want to say, God bless you, Jon. Thank you, I can't even believe you found it. So awesome, you're such an awesome person."

Abila will either mail the chain back to California or Morison might fly out to Hawaii and receive it from Abila in person.
