On Saturday, July 26th, we lost our cousin Alexa tragically in a car accident. She was only 19 years old. Her mom was about to give birth and Alexa came home from Martha's Vineyard to help her mom out. Alexa's mom actually gave birth after a scheduled c-section was postponed to this past Friday. Halia (Hawaiian) was born on August 1, 2008. Her name means in remembrance of a loved one. I can't imagine loosing a daughter, and with in that same week, giving birth to another daughter. Our prayers with the family. Please check out a local write up here.
