Aloha and welcome to our website honoring our dear mom, Leinani. In 2014, she was treated for cancer. Unfortunately, we learned a month ago that it had returned and spread. With beautiful courage and sound resolve, Mom decided to forgo treatment this time. Her decline has been steep since late December. We (her kids) have gathered to care for her in her home, supported by hospice. We'd really love for you to post memories, photos and messages for Leinani here. We will read them to her as we surround her with love. If you'd like us to call you, please post your phone number and one of us will give you a call. Mahalo for loving our mom. ~Erin Maile, Kristin Mele, Gavin Keppeler & Eden Nanea
