In honor of
Bunnie Reeser

Bunnie became a strong supporter of the Kalaupapa Monument after she was unable to find the grave of her great-grandmother, Rosina Weber. Tragically, Bunnie was diagnosed with brain cancer and died in July, 2007. The family decided that all donations in her memory should go to the Monument effort – these contributions enabled the ‘Ohana to compile the list of names of the first 5,000 people that will serve as the foundation for the first phase of the Monument.
Bunnie’s husband, Don, has taken her place on the Monument Committee. Mahalo, Reesers.

In honor of
Paul Harada

Even though Paul Harada was forced to leave his family as a boy, he eventually became the brother that the family revolved around when he was allowed to go home for visits. The Haradas also considered Paul’s wife, Winnie, as one of their own. When Paul died in early 2008, all of the Haradas – Winnie as well as Paul’s brothers and sisters – gave the money donated at Paul’s services to the ‘Ohana. This generous outpouring will allow the ‘Ohana to continue its important efforts of advocacy, education and preservation.

Mahalo, Haradas.
