God's blessings to the Yamamoto family. This is a sad reason for them to have to come to this country.

And the arrival of her mother is important to you and I why, exactly?

I'm sure the media will now give us several days of Grief Porn about this woman. Right up until someone else dies in a tragic way. Then she'll be forgotten and we'll be on to the next one.

Don't fall for this, folks.

I feel for the family and I hope the sleazy lawyers leave them alone, but doubt that will happen. They will probably be after their cut of a settlement.

So is it your mission in life to try to make everyone else as miserable as you obviously are? Despicable wretch, get lost.

It doesn't make sense Why did her boyfriend separate from her while on they were on a hike together? What a lousy hiking partner

It is important to me because she is a fellow human being, who is grieving for the loss of her daughter, the same as I would grieve for the loss of someone that I loved.

It is not easy losing a child in the prime of their lives (or any age for that matter (I know that feeling)).
Condolences to both families.

Interesting comment so say the least. If you don't like the articles about a persons demise, then don't read them. This young lady and her rescuer will not be forgotten for a long time. The story is very sad and I feel for both families. My son would have been 30 this year, he was 27 when he died.
Have a nice day.

They won't be forgotten for a long time alright because of their foolishness we lost a top State Police officer and a badly injured one and that brothers me to no end. They shouldn't have gone hiking in the first place because of bad weather; they werenít so smart after all. For their foolishness she paid the ultimate price! I have no sympathy for it! They werenít citizen of this country and just like millions of illegal immigrants in this country they create enormous problems that we have to deal with and thatís not right!
I know some readers will find my comments disturbing and will react to it and I could careless what is said!

Strange instances in this whole thing (the boyfriend getting seperated, the spotter wlking away friom the crash site, etc.)

Any bets the mom has already hooked up with a shiny toother barrister and has plans in the works? Lotta Yen awaiting this mom in the hands of the right lawyer!

I think it is you who is disturbed and needs to get help. No matter how many times you try to tear other people down to make yourself feel better about your own inadequacies and failures, it's still the same miserable wretch who stares back at you in the mirror each day. Being you must really suck, and if you weren't so mean spirited I would offer you my codolences.

This is tragic and I feel sorry for all the families involved. I am also a bit angry that an officer's life had to be sacrificed when it wasn't necessary. Ms. Yamamoto as well would be alive if better planning had taken place. As a society it seems too many throw caution to the wind and let someone else worry about it. We can all hope a lesson is learned but usually that is not the case. Wasn't it two short years ago when the Doctor and his girlfriend from PA had to be rescued north of SF as well? I do feel for these families but hope more common sense would prevail in the future.

May the spirits of those lost in this tragedy travel a gentle trail and the families and friends be comforted.

A sad situation all the way around: A professional law enforcement officer and pilot and a promising young mind lost to us. We have all been made poorer by this.

My heart goes out to the parents of this young, gifted Japanese girl. I have known an extraordinary number of Japanese women in the past 37 years. No matter what nationality a child belongs to, mothers all mourn the same way. I am chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo for the daughter's repose and for the healing to hasten as soon as possbile for all of her friends and relatives.

My condolences to Ms. Yamamoto's family for the tragic loss. How did "Salazar & Son's mortuary get charge of the arrangements?...gawd, this poor family out from Japan now has to deal with a very unscrupulous funeral home, who will suck the money out of them and do a very poor service for her memory....same folks that owned the Crestview funeral home in the 90's and Reflections of life funeral home....very sinister wanna-be funeral practitioners....gawd help this family from more mental anguish...

Get your facts straight sir. Salazar and Sons did an incredible job! The people, Kim, Leticia and Nick took care of Megumi with such care and she was beautiful. If you had attended you would have nothing bad to say. Thank you Leticia for treating us with great care.

Facts straight? You need to research your own facts and then think before you speak. Research their history here in Albuquerque, "sir" and then report back with your pompus attitude...
