Dear family of Alexa DiGiorgio
I would like to express my condolences to you on behalf of myself and the other daily swimmers at Hanauma Bay. It is so tragic that Alexa had to die as a result of an ocean incident when she was on vacation and should have been having a great time!!
We are trying to understand what happened to her.
We feel so badly that her daughters and husband will not have her presence in their lives.
Aloha Suzanne Hammer
