I attended the memorial service for Helene Hale last night. This is the Hawaii Tribune-Herald's rather meager summary of her life and accomplishments, which tends to make her come off as a "character." There is also a stock photo of her, which might give some the idea that she showed up at her own memorial service! Well, the HT was never much a newspaper. Journalism is on its last legs here. I will post other coverage as it becomes available.
It was a lovely occasion. Hers was a life well led.
