This issue of Ka Ho'oilina is dedicated to Kamuela Kumukahi of 'Ōkoe, Kona, Hawai'i, and to D. Māhealani Dudoit of Ka'a'awa, Ko'olau Loa, O'ahu.
Kamuela Kumukahi successfully played many roles in life, including Hawaiian language informant. One of his many language gifts to the world, given two weeks before his passing, was recorded in a footnote on page 17 of the last Ka Ho'oilina, where he provided the pronunciation and meaning of an otherwise unknown word.
D. Māhealani Dudoit was extensively involved with Ka Ho'oilina as an editorial board member, informal adviser, and copyeditor.
Both are fondly remembered. Both are missed. [End Page 1]
