GONE ON THE PATH OF NO RETURN IS MRS. EVELYN PIHANA LOAAOLE
Mr. Solomon Hanohano, Aloha kaua:—Please allow me a little space of our pride, which will flash quickly the parcel of tears placed above so that the many friends of my dearly beloved wahine who has gone on the road of no return will see, as well as the end of it all. To all from the great, wide Hawaii, island of Keawe all the way to Niihau, the island that snatches away the sun, Mrs. Evelyn Pihana Loaaole has gone, just as the Holy Book says,…
MRS. EVELYN PIHANA LOAAOLE
…the life of man is but a puff of smoke which appears and disappears, it is God who giveth and He who then taketh away. Blessed be his name.
After being ill for four days, my dear wife left me, her kane, and our hanai child. On the 27th of Feb., she was taken to the Queen’s Hospital by the doctor, and that evening at 7 o’clock she grew weary of this life, and her spirit returned to He who created it, and her body went under the care of Silva, and on the first of March her body was taken out for the family, the acquaintances and friends of my dear wife to view.
I, her husband, give my thanks to all the family and to the association, Ka Hale o na Alii o Hawaii, for your helping me from the watching over the body of my wife; and to the friends who came and stayed awake through that night with us, and also for the gifts of flowers.
Please accept this expression of thanks, and may the Lord bless us all with aloha.
Me with sadness,
CHARLES MAKEPA LOAAOLE,
and the Ohana.
