Desperate plea

This mysterious prayer request arrived in yesterday's mail, postmarked Honolulu, May 21. What is most frightening about this is the expression "I need our souls [of her family] to go to heaven with no delay."
If you are in the Honolulu area, do you recognize the name, handwriting or symbols?
Please forward this as far and wide as you can.

The symbols appear to be some sort of Asian characters. The stilted sentence structure and word usage make it look like it was written by a non-native English speaker. I agree it looks like a desperate cry for help.

I live in Honolulu, but I don't think the handwriting looks familiar... I don know that the character between 'to' and 'heaven' is the chinese character for sky or heaven. I'm afraid that I don't really know anyone named Sarah, but I'll let you know if I find out anything more about it.

It appears that the writer may be of teen to middle-age years, and female (not just because of her name, but because of the little hearts used for dots. It sounds as if there is a constipation problem, as well as some real or interjected confusion of mind.

The writing appears a little stilted (i.e. desiring better 'literacy'), but does not seem to lack organization of word and thought.

Constipation is often a side-effect of medications used to help with medical afflictions affecting thought organization and socially accepted behaviors. Perhaps this person has been 'treated' for disorganized thought patterns with constipating medications.

I don't see the link--where do you get bowel related inferences?

It is obvious if you study the handwriting. Read it again and notice the letter "B"

You're an odd little man, aren't you?

I wish I knew Sarah to reach out to her...but instead we will be praying for her so she will see the hope, light and love that surrounds her if not in the people near her then through the prayers and love we all are sending her through her Blessed Mother Mary and her strong all powerful brother and Lord Jesus.

I do hope you get a follow-up postcard from Sarah.

Sarah if you are reading this blog, please write back to Sister and talk with her. Or leave a comment for Sister through the blogsite. I am sure she would love to hear from you.
