It is with great sadness the family and close friends of Donald Kahapea/ Destiny Lynn announce his passing Tuesday morning February 2, 2016. Donald was the dedicated Community Service Coordinator for Our House of Portland's Esther's Pantry and Todd's Corner, and Destiny was one of the most memorable showgirls at Darcelle XV Showplace. He was a faithful friend, a committed advocate for our Community and an amazing entertainer who will be missed by all who knew him. Please join the family and friends at the celebration of his life this Saturday, 1pm-3pm at Darcelle's in Old Town (208 NW 3rd) .

It is with great sadness that the Esther's pantry family found out today that our boss Donald Kahapea passed away over the weekend. There are no word's to explain our profound loss of this amazing, compassionate, wonderful human being. Donald worked at Esther's pantry and Todd's Corner for twelve years. He was tireless in his dedication to people living with HIV and AIDS. A memorial service is being held at Darcelles on Saturday February 6th from 1-3pm. All are welcome.

"Today is going to be a hard day, and I'm reaching out for your prayers. Late last night heaven called another angel home. My dear Friend Tiara Desmond you will be missed and loved! People tell your loved ones how much you love them now because you may never get another chance! "I imagine what it will be like to be surrounded by the glory of God. You have arrived in your eternal home. Rest now..."
