I was in Costco early early one recent Saturday dashing around trying to get out of there before the crowds descended. (You know the drill.)
“Lynne!” a voice rang out, trying to get my attention. It was Carrie. We nodded conspiratorially regarding our good fortune to be in the relatively deserted store but had time for a few moments to converse. She asked about my son who graduated from Punahou with and was a friend of her daughter. I asked how she was doing. All was good with her. She looked good too. Vibrant, and full of energy and smiles. Up and ready to take on the day. It was nice to see an old friend in such spirits but the Costco clock was ticking and it was soon time to move on to shopping.
Leaving her I turned the corner and suddenly thought, “Oh, I should have gotten something from Carrie for the blog. Opportunity missed! Maybe next time …” Little did I know that Carrie would indeed soon make an appearance on the Punahou74 blog … but not for the the reasons I, and I imagine you, would prefer.
Through the generosity of her heart, Carrie stepped up to help another. She is now in medical distress and needs your aloha.

Carrie is a long term and well-loved member of Punahou74. Let’s all let her know that we are there behind her during this time of need. I’m counting on you, classmates. Don’t let Carrie, or me, down. Okay?
