I just remember she was a very sweet girl in my biology class. My heart was torn when I heard she was no longer going to be my lab partner. I really enjoyed going to class and just cracking side jokes with her. My she rest in paradise. I will never forget her smile and how it lit up the entire class. She was always eager to learn and try new experiments in class. You will never be forgotten. Ps. To the awesome lab partner with a radiant smile.

Maria, there are no words to express my feelings of this tragedy. My prayers are with you and your family. I remember your son as a young boy. What I have read about his beautiful daughter, it is clear he did a great job raising her to be kind and compassionate. May her memory be eternal.

I send my dearest condolences to Amanda's family and friends. I was a friend of hers in elementary school. I remember hanging out with her during Kindergarten and First Grade. I remember all of the funny antics that happened in Bus 18 during 8th grade with her. I remember how we always had political conversations on Facebook. I remember how she reached out to me when I was depressed, even though we never talked much after eighth grade. Rest in power, Amanda. I will miss you, and I hope to see you in Heaven when my time comes.

Amanda was a student in my history class at NEIU. She was bright and I appreciated her contributions to our discussions. My deepest condolences to her friends and family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My deepest sympathy for the family and friends of Ms. Vlamakis. At Revelation 21:4 it states: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I hope you can draw comfort from this scripture, and hope as well.
