    We are both deeply saddened to read of Paul’s passing. His love for others, his community, and his artistic creativity will be greatly missed on Molokai. Paul and Leila welcomed us to Molokai with open arms and are both true examples of the “Aloha Spirit” that is so special on Molokai. Paul will always have a very special meaning in our hearts as we drive past “Elia Corner” and he will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul’s family and the rest of the Molokai community that loved and cared for Paul so much.
