when the great scorer in the sky comes to put a checkmark against your name it does not matter whether you won or lost but how you played the game.

Carl Lindquist was a 1952 graduate of Roosevelt High School and was a very friendly and personable young man while attending school there. He was very popular without being gregarious and always smiled when approached whether you knew him or not. His interests were in drama and the arts. His many friends and former classmates send aloha to his family and friends on Maui.

...let's hope they decided to just fake it and hele on to Thailand and retire there and get away from all that responsibility they accumulated.

Sounds a lot better than swept out to sea.

If no one knows what happened it may be better to think only good came to them.

Since it rains so much in Hana, the rainfall of 26 Oct might not have seemed that heavy, but NWS radars recorded an extraordinarily heavy cell moving over the Hana coast that night. The stream gauge at nearby Hanawi Stream rose 6 feet in less than 2 hours with a max flow at 2000 cubic feet a second. The Lindquists almost certainly met a sudden and unforseen "wall of water".

The Linquist ʻOhana are pillars of strength and aloha in the Hāna community. They are cherrished family friends and I hope they are returned to us soon. Keep searching for this beloved couple. Hāna will not rest easily until questions are answered. They are Strong, and I still have hope for their return.

The above sentiments are very true. Although he was adopted by the Hana community many years ago, he was really a Honolulu boy who was well known during the wild golden days of Honolulu town during the late 50's thru the 70's. He ran with a classic group of jokesters and pranksters and they always took themselves lightly with the greatest of humor. The Lindquists were my neighbors in Maunalani Heights above Kaimuki before they moved to Maui. They lost their beloved daughter, Lynn, much too soon when she passed away in 1996.

I hate to use the words "was" and "were" as I still hold a glimmer of hope that this could be just another of Carl's practical jokes but as the hours and days pass, I feel
that a fond aloha oe is in order for Rae and Carl for their lives were truly well-lived.

We were in Hana for a long Thanksgiving weekend in a rental house, amazed at the hard rain Thursday night. This is a very sad part of an otherwise delightful visit to Hana for us. Our prayers are with the family and the whole Hana community.

Our family in California sends love to Hawaii, and to the Lindquists. Carl and Rae were my parents good friends for over 40 years, and we're all in shock. I feel lucky to have known these most wonderful folks.
