I am writing this as a means to communicate our heartfelt condolences to Anakala Pilipo, Greg and family on the passing of Dianna.
We came to Molokai for the first time six years ago, fell in love with the island but especially the people. They have brought us back year after year until COVID grounded us. We miss so many friends there and it is especially hard to lose a dear soul so far away.
We always went to Halawa every year and we felt a real bond with the Solatarios — I blew conch with Greg and had some nice moments with the family beyond the usual tourist visit.
Dianna was a beautiful soul and Pilipo’s love for her was the standard for all who love should reach for.
You are far away but close to our hearts.
A hui hou, malama pono
