Kiley Adolpho, a third-grade teacher at Princess Nāhiʻenaʻena Elementary School in Lahaina, led the effort to build a memorial for wildfire victim Keyiro Fuentes at Maui County’s Kelawea Mauka Makai Park. PC: Cammy Clark (8.24.23)

This story was updated on Sept. 18.

Along the fence at Maui County’s Kelawea Mauka Makai Park, an ahu made of stones from the Kauaʻula Stream was created to memorialize the life of 7-year-old Tony Takafua and 15-year-old Keyiro Fuentes, two of the young victims of the Lahaina fire.

Takafua attended Princess Nāhiʻenaʻena Elementary School and Fuentes went to Lahainaluna High School. Both schools are walking distance to the park.

The effort to build the ahu was led by Kiley Adolpho, who teaches third grade at Princess Nāhiʻenaʻena Elementary School. She was heartbroken to learn that students from Lahaina were among the victims of the deadliest U.S. fire in more than a century.

With tears streaming down her face, she said Thursday she needed to do something to let people know that the “precious keiki” were loved.

“The idea of this memorial is to remember our students from any school,” she said. “We got to put faces to the names. We got the ages. We need to see the faces. The family needs to see the faces.

“They need to know there are people out there who love them. Even strangers like me.”

  • The community put up a memorial along the Lahaina Bypass of crosses for each person who died in the devastating Aug. 8, 2023 fire, along with yellow ribbons for those who are missing. PC: Cammy Clark (8.24.23)

From the park, perched on a West Maui mountain, there is a sweeping panoramic view of what was once Lahaina but is now miles of destruction all the way to the ocean. Also in view from the park is a fence of white crosses that was put up by community members on the mauka side of the Lahaina Bypass.

On Tuesday, 115 crosses were put up for the number of remains found to date. A day later, more than 1,000 yellow ribbons were tied to the fence to represent the number of missing people as of Aug. 23. But as of Sept. 9, the number of people missing fell to 66.

This is down from the “validated” as missing at 388 in mid August.

As of Sept. 18, 74 fire victims have been publicly identified, with five other people identified but their families have not been notified or found.

And the number of fire victims remains was reduced on Sept. 15 to 97 after DNA results were matched.

The work continues to identify remains and track down people reported as missing in Lahaina after the fire.

Donna Gomes

A GoFundMe — GOMES Ohana Recovering from Lahaina Fires — said: “My name is Tehani Kuhaulua, the oldest grandchild of Donna Gomes, making this campaign on behalf of my immediate family members. As we all know about the horrifying drastic life-changing event that took place on Aug. 8, 2023. Along with many other long-term Lahaina grown residents, we as well have lost everything.

“Not only have we lost our homes but our family is also grieving the loss of our family backbone, Donna L. Gomes.”

Kuhaulua wrote: “Here is a bit about the matriarch of our family. She was born Donna L. Kahahane in Lahaina on Aug. 15, 1951, meaning as I write this her birthday is in two days from today. She would have been 72 years old. Raised on Kahua Street in Lahaina just around the corner from where she last resided on Lahainaluna Road. That house is where she lived for approximately 15 years. However, that Lahainaluna Road house has been in our Rickard ʻOhana for decades. Many family members, including myself, have lived there throughout the years. As a child, she played there with all of her siblings and cousins. She would reminisce on fond memories of her childhood there. In later years she retired from MPD Lahaina police station as a POA.

“On Aug. 8 2023 as Donna tried to flee from the wildfires that were sweeping through beloved Lahaina, she lost her life on Lahainaluna road. Ask anyone who knew her or knew of her, she had a very strong, independent will about her with the biggest heart full of ‘tough love’ for the ones she cared about. She’d drop anything she was doing for her ‘ohana. She was always just one call away. Some of her oldest friends know her as “the bull.” No one could tell her what to do and in the end not even the fires. She loved Lahaina and died in the town where she was born, raised and cared for all her life. Donna is deeply missed by so many. We love you from the bottom of our hearts.”

“Unfortunately, Ceding, who was partially paralyzed on one side of his body found it difficult to run from the flames. Nelda desperately attempted to save him by dragging him, but he was too heavy for her. She did not want to leave her husband’s side, but he insisted she save herself for the sake of the family.

“The next day was Nelda’s birthday. It was not a day of celebration but grieving and mourning. All she could think about was the image of her beloved husband in his last moments of life.

Terra Thomas, the victim’s niece, released this statement on behalf of her family:

“My aunt’s name was Terri Elaine Thomas. She was born July 6, 1961.

Our family was informed by eyewitness account that Terri was attempting to evacuate with an elderly neighbor, a male friend and Terri’s beloved dogs. Their vehicle was unable to move, and as flames rapidly approached their SUV, one of the passengers fled the vehicle. However, my aunt was unable to exit, leaving her stranded as the fire engulfed her vehicle. Explosions were happening everywhere with four walls of fire all around them. Her vehicle was later ID’d by a neighbor, who saw the remains of my aunt and her female friend.

Terri was a beautiful, loving and caring member of our family, and member of the Lahaina community for nearly 30 years. She was outgoing, funny and always willing to extend help to others in need.

Our family has many questions on how this scenario unfolded. We want answers to what happened, and why there were no evacuation alerts that could have prevented the loss of Terri and her fellow friends and neighbors.”
