I am the partner of one of the missing sailors. I want anyone concerned with the search to know that the cost of fuel for the search must not be an impediment to the search continuing. I will raise the money to pay, I pledge that sincerely. I want my beloved to come home. I am beside myself with grief and fear of losing him. - Sue Love
