Mahalo to Kauai services
On Dec. 29, around 1 a.m., my dear sister passed away peacefully in our home.
She had been dealing with cancer for some time in Australia and very much wanted to visit me. One of her daughters and family came with Shirley to give this special Christmas gift of her fifth visit to Kauai to see us, friends she had made and attend St. Catherine’s Church which she so enjoyed.
I sincerely wish to express deep gratitude to the emergency responders, police officers, fire department, grief counselor and Kauai Memorial Gardens who attended to Shirley following her passing and provided so much support and guidance throughout the time spent with us.
The respect, compassion and graciousness exhibited while you carried out your responsibilities are such a comfort, and the knowledge you shared enabled us to arrange Shirley’s return to Australia with as much speed and dignity as possible.
Mahalo for your aloha,
The Jacobs and Declase ohana
Some priorities matter more
Regarding the front-page article in Friday’s paper, “Council outlines 2015 priorities.” To quote Mr. Kagawa, “We need to start focusing on getting back to basics and taking care of our roads and our parks.”
Tell me, what is more basic than pure air to breathe and healthy soil?
It’s sad to think that all he thought of Bill 2491 was that it took up a lot of the council’s attention.
It’s too bad that he just doesn’t get it.
