“I wanted to take a moment to share my experience working with Edna “Loke” Russell at Homelani Memorial. I called Homelani to inquire about plan options for my mother. Edna helped me understand the options available and fees. Her excellent communication skills made the entire process easy to understand which aided me in making an informed decision. I procrastinated for obvious reasons but the experience was handled with care and ease. Thank you, Edna, for making a difficult task simple and stress free. Mahalo, Regina”

“Homelani exceeded our expectations in every aspect of handling arrangements for my aunt. Porsha was incredibly kind, considerate, and on top of every detail. Despite several months passing between my aunt's passing and the service, their commitment and support remained unwavering. They answered all our questions and guided us through a difficult time with compassion and professionalism. Homelani truly provided exceptional service from day 1 until the service concluded and made a difficult time a bit easier to navigate.”

“I recently had two family members expired and cremated unexpectedly. I did not want any more unexpected expirations. Debbie Minicola helped me to prepare and purchase services for future unexpecting family members departure. She was very professional, thorough, sympathetic, and compassionate about the unexpectant. I expect to call upon Homelani MP in the future for my own services.”

“I highly recommend the Homelani Memorial Park in Hilo. We got the 5-star treatment. My husband passed away on 11/30/23, and the service that I received from the employees from beginning to end was exemplary. Melonie helped me with the cremation paperwork. Thank you, Melonie. Josh & Porscha helped me with the rest; the viewing (12/7), the cremation (12/8), ordering the death certificates, and publishing his obituary. Everything went smoothly, just like clockwork. Thank you, Josh & Porscha.”

“I seldom write a review but I need to recognize Loke. I had a pleasant experience working with Edna Loke Russell. She was accommodating in meeting with me in creating my mother's marker and burial accommodations. She is easy to work with and very professional. I did not feel any pressure to make decisions. I have the utmost respect for her work ethic and the ability to move things along during my family's difficult time. I would recommend working with Loke if you need any assistance.”

“When my mom passed in September 2023, it was a very difficult loss as we were very close. I researched the top three mortuaries in Hilo and drove by the three facilities. Homelani Memorial Park had the most beautiful location up on a hill with ocean views. Additionally the property had a peaceful presence. Porscha greeted me on my first visit and answered all my questions. She made the process simple and she was appropriately kind and compassionate. She was really the hero of my experience with Homelani. She helped me through all of the difficult details and was quick to respond. Lastly, Homelani also happened to be the most cost effective of the three local mortuaries even though I ultimately worked with them because of their location/facilities and good/easy communication with Porscha. Thank you Homelani.”
