A celebration of Emalia’s life was held at the Kahului Harbor, and family and friends joined in canoes and on surfboards in a large circle on the water while leis were released into the ocean and countless flowers were dropped from a helicopter.

 

EMALIAʻS circle

When we are born, akua [spirit] says, “Go out into the world! I’ll give you a lifetime to make a big circle, a lifetime to touch all the people you can touch, to love all the people you can love and get them to love you, and get them to be your family, your ‘ohana [family].”

        – Iokepa Naeole
