Mahalo a nui loa for your wonderful participation at COA. I will look forward to your return next year. Health issues are moving forward and I am hoping to be "normal" again soon! Much aloha to you for all that you do. My 'ohana really took a liking to you...how could they not!!!
I have been thinking of you and now I have found you. How is life? I have been so busy with my paying job doing Literacy at Alu Like that I haven't been doing too much Kapa. My Ohana is fine. Ke Akua Malama ia oe a me kou Ohana.
Joyce is my mother who married my father Peter Namakaeha. Jennie Keuma and I are first cousin by her mother, Miriam who is sister to my father. I miss Kaua'i. Yes, we can get together and talk story. I've been working on the Kanei genealogy and fill in the tutu. Tane and Ku Ching has been very helpful. I'm working on the parents for Kawailani-i-pakui Kanei. When I moved to Kaua'i in 1989 - 1995, I was able to visit relatives and get to know my father's side. I have a strong connection to Kaua'i. Cousing Jennie and are very close.
I'm saw your inoa with Kaleiohi on the internet when I google cuz Leilani.. I remember cousin Leilani Namakaeha Kaleiohi talking about you in my yonder days. Is your family from Wainiha? My tutu Jennie Kanei is from Wainiha who married Namaka'eha Kamelamela. When I was doing my research, it shows Kauka from Big Island. I'm sure your tutu Kauka and Kanei Kaioe knew every family very well since being well aquainted in Wainiha.
