    Mr. and Mrs. Chen I hope time eases your pain. It is very hard to lose a child. I lost one of my own. I still think about what he would look like now. but i know god wanted him for a reson i could not understand. god and time will help. you will never forget your little angel. nor shall i forget mine. i know it is extremely hard for you right now they only thing i can do is pray for you. if you need someone to sit with you i will. you need someone to talk to i'll listen in the meantime i'll be praying for you.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I think some people are just to special to live in this hateful world, and I have no doubt your angel was one of them.

    Grace, I didnt teach you that often, but the encounters i had with you were awesome. You were a beautiful child. I will miss you greatly. I hope you still have that wonderful smile when I see you again someday. Mrs. and Mr. Chen. I cant begin to explain my sympathy for you and the rest of your family. She was a wonderful child. Everyone that was there loved her I am sure. She had a ton of friends. I will miss her greatly as I know you will to. Amber

    Although we did not know Grace or her family, when we heard the news tears were shed. My little boy is her age and I know how devistated I would be if something like this happened to him. I can only pray that their family and friends are able to support them at this moment and the years ahead. Find comfort in the fact that your community is here to support you. May you realize that the Father will look over her until he calls for you to join them.

    To the Chen family. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing your precious little Grace. But, I wish that I had. I myself taught 4 and 5 year Pre-school for many years, and that age is so precious. She was so beautiful, and as a parent I can't imagine your grief, but, trust in the lord, and he'll see you through. Even though you don't know me, I, as well as everyone that has seen and heard about this story, our hearts go out to you all. May God be with you in the days, months, and years to come. And, be assured that God is rejoicing to welcome such a wonderful little angel home. God Bless you all.

    May God bless and keep her family in this time of despair. Although I wasn't blessed in knowing Gracie, I pray that she's now a protective angel over her family always. Rest in peace sweet child.
