    I didn't know her but I live in the area

    So sad, and to think they were all doing this as a mission of mercy. God bless her family, and the students...

    I worked with Laura. We are absolutely devastated at work. She was young, smart, motivated, and so caring. She had been looking forward to this trip so much, was finishing grad school to become an NP... It's just all wrong.

    Very sad - and it hits home. When I was in Vietnam last summer, the rural villages had been hit with flooding a week before we got there and we drove on very unsafe roads with water and mud . . . .

    I'm sorry this happened.
