Aloha everyone ~
We are one week away from sweet Maria’s celebration, and I’m figuring so much out…especially technical stuff! I call upon Maria constantly for HELP and miraculously I seem to get it:)
I have many dear friends supporting me throughout this process of saying a final physical aloha to her. It is both a heartbreaking and heartfelt time! Maria has left me with a lifetime of treasures. There will never be a goodbye, just warm memories of her. I miss her every moment, and yet am at peace. I’m blessed.
Yesterday, her Kumu, (hula teacher), Lanakila, gave me this picture when she was dancing in his halau. I had never seen it. What a joy to see her beautiful hula hands and remember how much she loved hula and Lanakila.
If you are planning to be here with us on the 31st, PLEASE respond as space is now quite limited at the Yacht Club. You may respond here, on Maria’s site, or email to my address below. The Waikiki Yacht Club is a private club and I need to give names of those attending.
Peace to all~
Suzi (Maria’s blessed mom)
