To the Rafael 'Ohana,
I will never forget Mr. Rafael's kindness, bringing treats to Hospice Maui nearly every Wednesday for years after Mrs. Rafael passed away. He always greeted us with hugs and smiles, so thoughtful and generous. He was a very special person. I hope you feel his presence with you always. Thank you so very much for sharing your aloha with us all.
Dr. Nancy Long
