Today she is a whisper from Heaven's paradise. She knows I'm there when I visit hospice, she smiles, then fads away into sleep. I keep thinking mahalo nui for Sonia's life.
A me ke aloha ke aloha ka i 'oi a'e, pomaika'i na mea apau, pomaika'i na mea apau. When there is Aloha everything is blessed, everything is blessed. (ʻEkolu Mea Nui by Robert J.K. Nawahine)
There will be a memorial celebration after Sonia's "new beginning." Date and details will be posted here on her blog and also at CaringBridge: caringbridge.org/visit/sonialien.
