There were Heavy Hearts along the Leeward Coast today as friends and family came together to honor 21 year old Jonah Ragsdale and 23 year old Daniel Mole.

Family of the young men say they were approached by the founders of the Buffalo Big Board Surfing Classic, who wanted to have the ceremony during the contest, because of all the memories shared there over the years.

Hundreds of people were both in the water and on the shore, blowing conch shells and saying prayers. Ragsdale's family member said the ceremony was powerful and they are happy to be embraced by the Wainae surf community. 

Ragsdale's stepmother said the men had out cones and lights while they were changing the tire the night they were killed. She urges drivers to be more careful and to not text or drink and drive.
