Hannah Goldman Departs

Hannah, June 2007

Hannah, March 2009

Another member of our Group 78 returned home early. Hannah’s mother was in a bad automobile accident. Hannah returned to help with her recovery. Hannah started doing environmental work with an NGO, but switched to teaching at an Apia high school.
Hannah was the smiling happy member of our group, always upbeat. Unlike other members of our group who returned with stuff, Hannah took back her significant other, Leleiga, a Samoan whom she met in our training village.

Her hugs still linger on my back.

You will get to go home in not too many more months as well. With lots of stories to tell, that is for sure.

Hannah's Samoan boyfriend will be in for a shock coming to live in such a different culture. Sounds like Hannah will be busy supporting both her injured mother and her new boyfriend. Full plate!
