Great Show of Aloha
Although Sunday's massive search did not result in finding Laura, it elicited a cascade of aloha on her behalf. Gene Robinson and Texas Equusearch provided valuable specialized search technology and expertise. Dedicated supporters worked tirelessly making calls, sending e-mails, and distributing flyers to spread the word about the search. A wide array of community volunteers turned out for searches at 9 AM and 1:30 PM. They spent hours in the hot sun bushwhacking through harsh terrain in the hope of finding some sign of Laura. Off-duty firefighters and military personnel kindly lent their skills to the search. Local businesses generously donated food and supplies, including the Pukalani Starbucks, Flat Bread Pizza, and Home Depot. In the face of enormous challenges, the show of community spirit in honor of Laura has been heartening and inspiring. Mahalo nui loa to all who participated.
