In memory of Kona, who volunteered with "his person" for over 10 years.  Lori Powers and Kona brought love and joy to elders at three elder care communities.  Kona made his last visit last week and was able to "reach" a new memory care resident when no one else could.  He died unexpectedly yesterday.  Kona, you will be missed by many, and you have been a blessing to many.
