I sit this evening contemplating 3 months ago today, which marks the day that sweet Maria left this physical plane. I continue to feel, and miss, her every moment of every day! I am deeply grateful and filled with joy for all that she has given me! What a blessing you are, Maria Kamoanamalie (her Hawaiian name) Costello!
We are planning a beautiful and heartfelt remembrance of Maria on July 31, 2016, at the Waikiki Yacht Club in Honolulu. We will have a blessing on the beach early, then paddle her out to release her body into the ocean she loved dearly! A celebration and breakfast will follow at the Yacht Club. I will post details as they continue unfolding.
(Please let me know via Maria’s or my email ( firstname.lastname@example.org) if you plan to attend, and, if you would like our contact for accommodations at the Outrigger Ala Moana Hotel, Waikiki).
Blessings and peace~ ~Suzi (Maria’s mom)
“Remember to love yourself the way you would your own best friend. It’s you who is the most important relationship you’re going to have throughout your life, considering that you’re the one person who you’ll be living with always, through the ups and downs, for every second of your life. The more you love yourself, the more you can love another… and the more you can allow another to then love you.” ~ Maria Costello (Valentine’s Day, 2015)
