AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE FOR MY BELOVED LEI, HATTIE KUIKAHI.
Solomon Hanohano, Esq., Editor of the Kuokoa Newspaper, Aloha kaua:—Should there be an open space in your newspaper, please insert our bundle of tears that is placed above.
Hattie Kuikahi left us, her parents and her younger siblings on the 2nd of October, 1920.
She was born in Kahului, Maui, on June 28, 1899, from her mama, Hattie Kuikahi who passed on previously. My dear lei spent 21 years and 3 months breathing the chilly air, and she passed on.
She was educated in the government school. The last school she went to was Maunaolu Seminary, for three years, and it was sickness that caused her to leave her education.
She spent almost three years persevering her sickness, striving to be victorious over her troubles, but this was not possible, because she was very ill.
The Almighty Father came to take her spirit, and left behind her cold body for us to grieve over.
We give our great thanks to Joseph Mo Fat, Ah Nim Wong, Mr. and Mrs. Kapohakimohewa, Mr. and Mrs. S. R. Maples, for their help and everyone for their floral gifts to adorn the cold body of our beloved lei, our child.
We once again give our thanks to the Brother Foresters of Kahului, the friends, and also Rev. L. B. Kaumeheiwa for accompanying her to her grave.
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
We also give thanks to the Editor of the Kuokoa Newspaper and his boys.
We, the family.
DAVID KUIKAHI, JR.,
JOSEPH J. KUIKAHI,
MRS. LILY KUIKAHI.
