Laura, Whitney and Matt


I watched the special about the mistaken identity of the two girls.
I believe even in death Laura was there with Whitney, helping her parents see her, so that they would continue to stay by Whitney's side. They seemed the better suited for the five week ordeal.
Maybe it gave them time with their daughter, a delayed goodbye.
It had to be heart wrenching for both families.
My favorite line occurred when Whitney saw Laura's boyfriend, she called him Hunter patted the bed and and asked him to come lie down. His love and loyalty to Laura must have come through and was interpreted by Whitney as the love and devotion she was accustomed to from (as we much later learn) her dog Hunter.
May peace and goodness be with each of these families
