I think that your organization is an awesome thing for Hawaii to have and I haven’t been able to stop talking about how wonderful you and the Aloha Society were to us. Ashley and John are doing a little better. Both still feel like they have been over by a Mack truck, but each day they get a little better. We look forward to seeing you next year. Take care and again Thank-you.”

“[Jessica] and [the Visitor Aloha Society of Hawaii] showed me such kindness and had the resources to help me through this and make me feel like I had a friend in a place where I had no one. I so thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and would love to see you again when I make another visit back to Hawaii. Yes, I will be back to personally thank all that was so important to [my husband’s] care and mine while I was there.”

“We are very grateful for the help and services VASH provided to us; and we are grateful also knowing that you are there to assist all visitors to the beautiful islands. With nearly 5 million visitors a year to Oahu alone, you must be very busy, but you provided us with the close personal attention that makes such a difference. We hope VASH continues to offer such services long into the future. You demonstrate the true Aloha spirit at times when it is most in need.”
