Coach Tate,
You have engraved on my heart the values of sacrifice, dedication, love, commitment, service to others, Aloha. Although I was 15 years old at the time of your passing, I am still able to remember and cherish all the lessons you taught us. You cheered us on from the sidelines at every practice and game; encouraging, inspiring, and motivating with all of your infectious positive energy. You inspired me to become a coach to inspire young people just as you did so many years ago. Mahalo for everything Coach Tate, the people whose lives you touched will always and forever remember you. Me ke aloha pumehana, Tanya Yuen Wannomae PCHS c/o 1998 Girls Basketball
