A great Hawaiian, Noble Robert Kel`iiho`omalu “Uncle Robert”, had been at the Veterans center in Hilo recovering from an ongoing infection. His family and a very large crowd of loved ones had been at his side for a couple days. Music, food and aloha overfilled the hospital. Yesterday, on the third anniversary of Puna, his son’s passing, he asked to return home. His eyes grew brighter and his smile wider as he came closer to Kalapana, Kaimu. He drew a last deep breath and left us at 3:00pm February 15, 2015.
