Mourners Gather To Say Goodbye To Kahuku Teen Killed By Car

By : Beth Hillyer

(KHNL) - Hundreds of mourners gathered Saturday at the Laie Cemetery to say their final goodbyes to Summer Lynn Mau. 

"They know there is life after.  This is not the end," Bishop Fetu'u Falevai said.  "They will get to see summer again."

Friends and family from the Laie community, Kahuku High School and co-workers from the Polynesian Cultural center joined her family in prayer as Mau's baby blue casket processed. 

The 20-year-old was killed two weeks ago while mourning at a roadside memorial for two friends who died in a car crash the night before.

"Because the community is so close the support from everybody everybody they become a family," Falevai said.

Friends from New Zealand offered a powerful Haka to ward off evil spirits and guide Mau on her journey, and family members plaved flowers on her casket in an emotional goodbye.

Police have made no arrests in the case involving the 21-year-old woman driving the car that killed Mau and another North Shore teen.
