Abstract

On the morning of Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013, Howard Paul McKaughan, founder of the Department of Linguistics at the University of Hawai`i and early member of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, died peacefully in his sleep at the age of 91. Three days before his death, he wrote this final message that Byron W. Bender forwarded to several of his former colleagues and students on December 1: Dear Family and Personal Friends, I have asked Charlotte [daughter] to update you on my medical condition. I have been hospitalized for several days for a terminal condition brought on by age and stomach problems following a heart valve replacement. I confessed my sins before God and man and have asked for His forgiveness, which He has given. All praise to God!! I know that I am in the Lord's hands and am so grateful for the personal relationship I have with so many of you and with my precious family. God bless you in the life you live. Very truly yours, Howard McKaughan For someone who was so genuinely thankful for the life he had been given, the timing of Howard's departure could not have been more perfect.1 Together
