Aloha ahui hou Maui Grandma

Kaili called late this morning...I was expecting to hear her relate the results of Grandma's visit to the doctors at Kaiser Wailuku. She called to tell me I need to fly over to Maui as soon as possible. I arrived at about 4pm and went straight to Maui Memorial. In the room were Kahue with his son, Kailea, their Mom, Susan, and Kaulana's girls. We talked and shared stories. Verna Tavares was working the floor and she was very instrumental in getting Mom on the floor. About an hour after I arrived, while talking to Kahue and sharing with him a story about his father Kalei, I noticed Grandma's breathing slowing to a halt. Verna just walked in and I asked her to check on Mom. She notified the attending nurse.....the nurse came in to check on her, then looked at me and announced she had passed. My mother now joins my father and brother along with her sister, brothers and cousins on the other side of the veil. Our children, both those on Maui and the ones off island miss their grandmother but are comfortable in the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. We know where we came from, why we are here and where we are going after this life. Our Fathers choir just got their soprano 1 back. Mom, we are so very grateful for what you have shared with us and we surely will miss you but know that you are where you need to be. Aloha ahui hou.
