It is with the greatest sadness that I share sorrowful news of the passing last night of a true embodiment of aloha in the Seattle-area's Hawaiian community.
Manono Aki McMillan, with whom I had the joy of co-hosting broadcasts of the "Hawai`i Radio Connection" on KBCS for a decade, has died of cancer. She kept her illness a secret from all but her closest family.
If you knew her - well, you knew her. She was honest, caring, giving, loving to so many for so long. If you didn't know her - here is a lovely profile written a decade ago by Uncle Danny Kaopuiki for the Northwest Hawai`i Times newspaper: Kama`aina Profile -- December 2005
