The girlfriend of an American passenger aboard missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has written of her pain and hope that the pair will soon be reunited in a series of love notes on her Facebook page.
As search and rescue teams race to find the jet, Sarah Hamil Bajc has been penning love letters to her boyfriend, Philip Wood, telling him about her day and sharing small tidbits of information he has missed since the plane disappeared March 8.
“Dearest Love ... This is the second Saturday of your disappearance,” Bajc wrote in one post. “I cannot remember much of the first, but I have spent today remembering you. I have scrolled through a very long rolodex of happy memories ... we have so much fun together. And so much peace together. And so much love. You have become a permanent part of me.”
In another note, Bajc tells Wood they never finished their last game of “Words with Friends” and that he would automatically win if she didn’t respond. “Can't have that!” she wrote.
“I hope you are able to get some rest where you are, and that they are feeding you. Any chance they include a glass of wine with dinner?” Bajc added.
Bajc’s Facebook page is also populated with news stories and updates on the missing plane. In one post, she reveals her frustration at the way Malaysian authorities have handled the investigation so far.
“Dysfunctional is the word!!!” she wrote.
On Thursday, Bajc told ABC News she still held hope the passengers were alive, but was also "prepared” in the event that Wood, an IBM executive, did not return.
A business teacher at an international school in China, Bacj had intended on joining Wood in Kuala Lumpur where they were planning to start a new life together, she said. Wood was on his way to Beijing to help her move when the plane vanished.
“The risk of not knowing is what frightens me the most," Bajc told ABC News. “When you don't know, the wound just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Not only can it not start to heal, but it actually gets worse."
