My dear friend Mele is gone. And in this moment of reflection on her legacy I am overwhelmed with emotions. Sadness yes, yet also anger at this horrible disease, cancer, and finally despair.
We were as family - Mele and I. Together we worked tirelessly for this district. We grew together and changed together. I know that she would like us to remember her as the champion of the underdog, the guardian of the poor and the voice of the voiceless. Farewell my dear friend, God be with you on your long journey home.
We honor Mele in the latest issue of our newsletter, as well as look at a program to develop young community leaders, provide the capital improvement items for our district, and celebrate 'Olele Hawai'i Month.
