MRS. LONO KAHAKAUILA HAS GONE.
Mr. Sol. Hanohano, Aloha nui:—If there is open space on the ship Kuokoa, please include the title above.
In the early morning of Wednesday, Sept. 24, at 5:45 p. m. [? a. m.], Mrs. Lono Kahakauila grew weary of this life at her home at Keononalu, Wailuanui, Maui; and she left behind her remains for the family and the friends to grieve over on this side of the dark river of death [ka muliwai eleele o ka make].
Mrs. Lono Kahakauila was born at Keanae, Maui, in the month of July 5, A. D. 1863; and she spent 61 years, one month, and 233 days breathing the chilly air of this life, and then she left.
She married her husband, Mr. P. K. Kahakauila of Wailuanui, Koolau, Maui, in the month of May 27, A. D. 1879. Rev. S. K. Kamakahiki performed the marriage, the kahu of the Protestant Church of Keanae.
In the month of April 23, A. D. 1904, her husband was taken away to Kalaupapa, Molokai, for Leprosy; and in that year, he grew weary of this life, on Sept. 22, A. D. 1904.
From their garden sprang fine fruit, two children, the realm of po took one, and one remains living until this day.
Her husband was married previously to a woman, and he had a child with that woman who lives until this day.
Therefore, in Lono’s life, she was a woman who lived graciously, cared for her family, was hospitable to her friends, gave aid to those in need in their livelihood.
And not only that, but she was a strong supporter of the Church and her entire family of her home, but because of the weakness that came upon her body, she left behind the works of her beloved Lord, and at the time and hour shown above, her spirit glided away on the path taken by all those who have living bodies.
Therefore, we the family in our grief and sadness offer our thanks to the friends and family, and the kahu of the Church of Keanae, for being with us in our hour of sorrow.
Therefore, all of you please accept our thanks, and may God help us in His love and His kindness, and it is He who will lead us all on the good path, by his name, Amen.
We with sadness,
MRS. AICE S. KEAUPUNI [ALICE S. KEAUPUNI],
MRS. E. KAHAKAUILA,
MRS. A. KALOHELANI,
MRS. H. AKUNA,
MRS. L. KALANIOKU,
Wailuanui, Maui, Oct. 13, A. D. 1924.
