Aloha a nui to a gentle and wise soul who is with us always, barefoot,
watchful, quiet, loving. I will holo soon i uka to pick his lei
pukiawe, as he requested, but let me know if you want to come with me
to hoilili i na hua liilii, na ula, akala, a kea i ka ahui pukiawe.
Reply only to, please.
Just yesterday I stopped at the three `ohi`a lehua trees in Malama Ki,
to oli aloha for aunty Lehua, and thought on Brother Frank
Kaimiikepono Pao. As we left to descend, a white-phase 'io flew down
and perched above us. I felt it was a kino kupuna, lole oloa, me he
kahuna la.

Aue this is too hard -- uhae ana ka naau i ke aloha ino.
