Just wanted to give everyone an update on the search for Ed's journal. Some Southwest Airlines friends of friends of ours were able to make contact with the flight attendants on board our plane and one of them confirmed that they definitely found Ed's journal after we deboarded the plane (and remarked to the other crew how sad it was-- so we know it's the right one) and turned it in to operations in Las Vegas. Now we just need to wait until it turns up in the system, hopefully soon at central baggage in Dallas. So while it's not found yet, this thankfully means that at least it is not in a gutter or dumpster somewhere.
I will take time soon to more properly thank everyone, but for now, please just know how incredibly grateful we are for the efforts you have all made, even when many of you did not even know us. Just amazing. Thank you again.
We are at the beach on the Eastern Shore for the weekend, so I may not sign back on until Monday. But I just wanted to say thanks again before any more time passed.
