HONOLULU – Gov. Neil Abercrombie shared the following statement regarding the passing of Hawaii Department of Health Director Loretta Deliana Fuddy after speaking with her family:
“Our hearts are broken. Loretta was deeply loved and respected. She was selfless, utterly dedicated, and committed to her colleagues in the Department of Health and to the people of Hawaii. Her knowledge was vast; her counsel and advice always given from her heart as much as from her storehouse of experience.
“We send our best thoughts to her family and will do all in our power to reflect her professionalism, her love of Hawaii and the high standard she set for herself and all of us.”
