We are reaching out to all our ohana & friends as we are dealing with the devastation our sister Sheri has been through. Sheri, Kainoa, and Kahealani (Lani girl) have been living in Maui for the past 30 years, and both Kainoa and Lani were born and raised on the islands. All their life, Maui has been home. We are so thankful Sheri, Unko Scary, and the kids are safe, but the insurmountable damage and recovery of their home and life will now be the biggest uphill battle for them. The fire in Lahaina has taken their home, their jobs (both Sheri and Kainoa worked at Kimo's on Front St), their soap business (saltwaterbuddhamaui), and most importantly, the cherished memories of their late husband/father, Mike Hands, who passed away from Leukemia. As they process the enormity of all this, we are asking for any donations to help them rebuild their lives. If you are not able to contribute financially, please keep them in your prayers! Also, if you can share any photos with us that you may have of the Hands Ohana, we’d love to get a copy of them to send to her. You can also email me directly at [email redacted] to request an address to send prints.
We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all your prayers and thoughts for our family.
Jason & Rochelle Seto, David Seto, Roni Lai, Melinda Owens, & Jennifer Lopez
