  • Anshu Mangal on 04.18.2013 at 6:18 pm

    Deeply sorry for your loss. There is no loss greater than losing a loved one, especially for parents that lose a child. My heart goes out to you. May God give you the strength to bear this loss and may her soul rest in peace.

  • Vanessa Chen on 04.18.2013 at 6:30 pm

    7 years ago I left BU with dream of the world, what remains in my memory of my 3 years in Boston is not the harsh winters, the snow storms, but the warmth of caring people, the spirit of the elite, and the blood for America and even the world. Although your chance of experiencing what BU has to offer was taken away by this tragic event,the legacy will carry on, because we will carry on for you, not only as a Chinese student in BU, but because we will always be Terriers.

  • Debby Fenn on 04.18.2013 at 6:32 pm

  • Zheng Gong on 04.18.2013 at 6:36 pm

    We discussed on graduate program application, internship, cold visit, Karaoke, TOEFL, visa, CFA, roommates, May Day, Life of Pi, John Hull’s textbook…I should have gone to Boston to see you earlier. I cannot believe that you leave us that early. Just want to let you know that I will always be with you.

    Wish you all the best in heaven,
    Zheng Gong

    • Bart R. on 04.22.2013 at 6:47 am

      I was shocked and saddened when I read the terrible news about losing such a wonderful, bright and beautiful young girl. I am an American teacher at a University in Xiamne, China. I have taught here for five years. There are so many terrible people in the world who are doing so many bad things like this to innocent people. I am so sorry this happened to her. I read about Lingzi online after the tragedy. It brought tears to my eyes and I am still thinking about it. Such a tragic loss. I wish the family strength, resolve, and the ability to appreciate how wonderful Lingzi,s life was. We grieve with you and wish you peace.

  • Nathan Hood on 04.18.2013 at 6:52 pm

    To the parents of Lu Lingzi – I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of America – we are so sorry this happened to your wonderful daughter.

  • Daniel Kang on 04.18.2013 at 7:02 pm

    I was fortunate to both attend BU and to visit your hometown, Shenyang, last year. We are all tied together in many ways. Please know that the entire BU community mourns your loss.

  • Emily Nghiem (BA Math, Rice University 1988) on 04.18.2013 at 7:05 pm

    To the Family: Thank you for all the sacrifices you made to give Lingzi the very best in life. What a joy to read about her, as an inspiring example to others. You deserve to be proud parents, and may all the love and honor you feel for your daughter carry you through and give you strength and comfort, especially when you miss her the most. I am sorry to hear of your daughter in this way, but thankful for God to find ways to shine light through the darkness, and build bridges that bring our world closer together. So many people share in your loss, please do not try to carry it alone. Please let other people grieve with you, so the burden will be less. My heart and prayers go out to you, across the ocean, that all the love in the world be yours right now, embrace you, and lift your minds to heavenly peace. May many good things be done in Lingzi’s memory, great or small, that you will know her spirit lives on in the hearts and minds of others who remember and cherish her, and she will continue to make a lasting impact in the world, in her own special way. Thank you and may God bless you abundantly. With love, Emily Nghiem, Houston TX

    Sending warm thoughts, love and sympathy from California.

  • Paul Lobosco on 04.18.2013 at 7:31 pm

    So sad to hear about a fellow alumnus having her life shortened unnecessarily. When I saw the picture, my heart just dropped. She looked like a very nice person. You could tell. Her family can feel comfort from the Boston U Community and that they will always have support here or in the homeland. Don’t ever feel the US is bad. Our liberties can create bad people and evil thoughts but our people create and sustain liberty. Paul L. SMG ’82

  • Jayne Donovan Staley on 04.18.2013 at 7:47 pm

    Some of my best memories of my time as a student at BU include attending the Boston Marathon. My heart is broken over this assault on one of Boston’s greatest traditions and the lives of all those spectators who came to pay respect to the fitness of body and character of those running. My prayers and sympathy are with the family of Lu Lingzi and all the people impacted by this attack on our freedom to pursue happiness.

  • David Chan on 04.18.2013 at 7:48 pm

    My deepest condolences. I never knew Lu Lingzi, but still it saddens me. It saddens me that a person who has worked so hard for her future met this kind of fate. I myself am not going very far in my life, but this has truly given me a new outlook on life. She didn’t deserve this. No one deserves this. Knowing that she is helping her fellow alumni, she must be smiling from heaven. Rest in peace. My prayers and thoughts go out to the family.

  • Cyrus Phan on 04.18.2013 at 8:08 pm

    The sadness of the present days, is locked and set in time, and moving to the future is a slow and painful climb.

    But all the feelings that are now, so vivid and so real, can’t hold their fresh intensity as time begins to heal.

    No wound so deep will ever go entirely away, yet every hurt becomes a little less from day to day.

    Nothing can erase the painful imprints on your mind but there are softer memories
    that time will let you find.

    Though your heart won’t let the sadness simply slide away, the echoes will diminish
    even though the memories stay

    To Lu Lingzi’s Parents,
    “My words will not mend the pain that you are feeling right now, however through my words, I hope that you find peace and comfort, and that Lu will forever be remembered and never forgotten.”

    -Cyrus T. Phan

  • Linda Parker on 04.18.2013 at 8:55 pm

    To the parents of Lingzi: I only know your daughter from reading about her, but in doing so, I learned about a remarkable young woman who was a light in the world. What a tragedy that someone so talented with so much potential should be wrenched from the world in this terrible way. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved daughter.

  • Susan Icklan on 04.18.2013 at 10:09 pm

    Your loss is beyond comprehension and I am so sorry for you. It is amazing that your daughter traveled half across this world to attend school – she must have been so brave. It shows she was a joyful person who loved to experience life and culture that she chose to be at the finish line that day. You must be wonderful, supportive and nuturing parents. I am so sorry.

  • Philip on 04.18.2013 at 10:24 pm

  • Diana Shao on 04.19.2013 at 12:14 am

    I attended the same high school as Lingzi did, only graduated three years ahead of her. I can’t believe the news when I first saw it. I believe Lingzi is now somewhere up there, resting in eternal peace. May her parents recover from this tragedy soon.

It must be really hard for you, but Lingzi will continue to live in many people’s mind. Lingzi’s spirits and smile have touched many many hearts. Like cherry blossoms, Lingzi, your wonder, pursuit for dreams, and passions for life will last forever in this world. And, you have brought changes to this world. May you rest in Peace.

    As a former BU graduate student (GRS ’81) my heart goes out to the family of Lingzi. I feel incredibly sad that her studies were so tragically cut short. Everything I have read about her show what an amazing young woman she was and what a bright future she would have had and I can only hope that your memories of such a wonderful person can bring you some measure of comfort.

  • JW on 04.21.2013 at 8:28 pm

    To the family of Lu Lingzi – I am sorry I never had the opportunity to meet your beautiful and intelligent daughter but her story resonates with me and you were so brave to let her travel far from home to pursue her dreams and realize her incredible potential.

    I am heartbroken at the loss of your beautiful daughter. And I am so sorry that my country, to which she came in pursuit of her dreams, was unable to protect her. I can only hope that her days here were happy ones.

    Although I only know Lingzi through what I have read in the media, it is obvious that she was an incredible young woman, and in losing her both of our countries have suffered a tremendous loss.

    Your pain must be unbearable, but I hope it is some small solace to know that we in America love your daughter and are mourning for her and that the dreams that were so tragically taken from her will serve as an inspiration to many throughout the world.

    Her beautiful smile will always be remembered, and she will live forever in our hearts.

  • Eugene Hung (Hong Yuzhan) on 04.22.2013 at 1:24 am

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Lu,

    I am so deeply sorry for the passing of your daughter Lingzi. I am also a parent, which helps me to imagine how excruciatingly painful this last week has been for you.

    Please forgive us, the American people, for not protecting your daughter better than we did. You hoped that we would welcome Lingzi to our country and make her feel as much at home as possible, and I believe our people did that. But you also entrusted us with taking care of her, and on Monday, we failed. Despite our efforts, we were not able to protect her and others from harm at the Boston Marathon. Please forgive us.

    As we’ve learned about your daughter this past week, we have been greatly impressed with her. But we have also been touched by what we’ve learned about *you* and your love for her.

    One thing we’ve learned is that you have treasured her deeply. In your open letter and through interviews, you have made obvious to the world that you have loved Lingzi as much as any child could ever be loved.

    We’ve also heard of your sacrifices for Lingzi. You worked hard and saved every bit of money to support her educational pursuits. And even though it would take your only child several thousand miles away from you, you knew that her longtime dream was to study in America – and you empowered her to go and live it.

    We’ve also seen in Lingzi’s life how well you raised her. Everything we’ve heard about Lingzi has made us greatly wish we had known her while she was here – her upbeat personality, her enthusiasm for trying new things, her diligent academic study, her sense of humor, her love of dogs and gourmet chocolate, her wide range of musical preferences (from classical to grunge), and her appreciation for her new school and her new city. She demonstrated a solid optimism and confidence. Given her young age, surely you had a lot to do with nurturing those qualities in her. It speaks well of the job you did raising her, and it testifies to your powerful love for her.

    But I know that these are terribly sad and dark days for you, and that the anguish is unbearable. Please know that the American people are holding you close to their hearts, and that as you grieve and mourn, we shed tears in great sympathy for you.

    Thank you for blessing the world with a wonderful daughter. We will always remember her – and you, the parents who have loved her so much.

    Eugene Hung (Hong Yuzhan)

  • J C on 04.22.2013 at 9:37 pm

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Lu,

    I am so sorry for your loss and realize that no words can fill the void that is left. I did not have the privilege of knowing your daughter, but as a Chinese American and fellow graduate student at Boston University, I was touched by the stories about your daughter. Her story hit me especially hard because I am also a UC graduate and am from 20 minutes away from UC Riverside, which I heard she studied at and have friends who also attended that school.

    Everything I heard about her was how positive she always was, and I quickly realized that I should learn from her example. I am in law school and many times, all of us have considered quitting. Despite the various struggles, I and my fellow students have learned how to carry on by your daughter’s example. Although none of us knew who she was until the tragedy occurred, we have all learned from her example. We will continue to run our own individual races and have the strength to finish because of her story.

    Over the last week, I have been discussing the lessons that I have learned with my friends from home in California. They, along with me, have also learned how to be more positive and have been touched by your daughter’s story. As a result, we have all made donations or will be making donations to your daughter’s scholarship fund. It was a privilege for me to attend the memorial service and my friends were streaming it online.

    We will continue to remember the example that your daughter has set before us and wish you and your family the best during this difficult time.

  • Aaron Huber on 04.22.2013 at 9:55 pm

    May God’s PEACE soothe your hearts, sing melodies to your souls, and allow you to only be Strong and remember her as she is – a blessing. She would have lived a life to the fullest and made this world better. Please Continue on in her honor and Legacy and continue to live your lives to make the world more sweet, and good. And may God help you from this day forever!

  • Patrick Wido on 04.22.2013 at 10:44 pm

    I am so sorry to the parents of Lu Lingzi for their loss, and for my country for being unable to protect Lingzi. I never knew her; I’ve never even been to Boston. But I have learned about her from her family, and her friends through the past few days and her memorial service.

    It truly breaks my heart and hurts me deeply to see such a kind, sweet, beautiful, and perhaps most of all smart girl taken from you, her friends, and from all of us in the world.

    She was a uniquely wonderful girl, and it is a testament to your profound love that she was who she was.

    She will inspire me and countless others to carry on in this world from her upbeat personality, love of life, and her hard work.

    There are no words I can think of to truly lessen the pain, but I hope you find some small comfort in knowing that she will never be forgotten, and that I and America deeply mourn her loss.

  • Elise on 04.23.2013 at 12:38 am

    Dear Family of Lu Lingzi,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter. The BU memorial service was very moving. What a gifted, hardworking, kind and generous person Lingzi clearly was. I cannot imagine the pain you are going through.
    I am thankful to BU that they have set up a scholarship, so her name and her achievements can live on. 
I myself have had many admirable students from China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. I had just started studying Mandarin and I recognized several words in Lingzi’s father’s eulogy: “teacher,” “beautiful,” and “thank you.” It is we who need to give thanks to the Lu family for the beautiful gifts Lingzi already gave to the world. With the scholarship, she will go on teaching us. Thank you so much. Xie xie.

  • Paula & John on 04.23.2013 at 12:58 am

    We’re both so sorry for the loss of your daughter Lu Lingzi. She looked so kind and very beautiful. Now, she is an angel in heaven. We feel a kinship with her since we both attended BU and our families are from China as well. May God bless you, strengthen and surround you with his love and peace now and always. I hope her Scholarship Fund will leave a lasting legacy in her memory and her dreams will live in the future students she will be helping. Blessings.

    Dear FAMILY of Lu Lingzi,

    Anyone who gazed upon your daughter’s smiling face knew that she was a beautiful person with a cheerful spirit that made all those who knew her happier. I weep not only for your loss, but for the loss of the world, for which your daughter had so much to offer. Please forgive us, we failed to protect your beautiful, precious, baby girl. Believe me when I say to you that we are broken, with nothing left but a burning desire for justice in an unjust world.

As a Chinese-American family through adoption, we feel the loss of a daughter of China very keenly. Our hearts ache for you.

    To the LU Lingzi Family: I am so sorry for your loss. I am sorry that your daughter went all the way to Boston for an education and was caught up in this senseless violence. You should be proud that you let her take a chance, to live in another country, and I am just so sorry that this ever happened. I have lived and studied overseas, too, including in Beijing, China for two years, and I think it is so good, and so important, to try and live in each other’s countries and increase understanding. I truly apologize that this happened to your daughter. I hope at least that the scholarship will keep her memory alive forever and she will be honored always. Please take care of yourselves and thank you.

    诗篇二十三1-6
    耶和华是我的牧者,我必不至缺乏。他使我躺卧在青草地上,领我在可安歇的水边。他使我的灵魂苏醒,为自己的名引导我走义路。我虽然行过死荫的幽谷,也不怕遭害,因为你与我同在;你的杖,你的竿,都安慰我。在我敌人面前,你为我摆设筵席。你用油膏了我的头,使我的福杯满溢。我一生一世必有恩惠慈爱随着我,我且要住在耶和华的殿中,直到永远!
    诗篇一二一1-8
    我要向山举目,我的帮助从何而来?我的帮助从造天地的耶和华而来。他必不叫你的脚摇动,保护你的必不打盹!保护以色列的,也不打盹,也不睡觉。保护你的是耶和华,耶和华在你右边荫庇你。白日,太阳必不伤你;夜间,月亮必不害你。耶和华要保护你,免受一切的灾害。他要保护你的性命。你出你入,耶和华要保护你,从今时直到永远。

  • Sean McCrohon on 04.26.2013 at 1:17 am

    One thing we discover when a young, promising life like Lu Lingzi’s is lost is how much we see ourselves, our dreams, our children and our future in the eyes and smile of memorial photographs of the one so cruelly taken too young. We see the promise and the joy of living, and realize that Lu Lingzi was a part of all our futures and hopes, even those who did not know her firsthand. She is the sister or daughter or granddaughter of us all, as we seek, and she above all sought, to make the world a better place.

    We truly lost a gentle, capable and unique part of our world when she was victimized by hatred, the opposite of what she was about. But it is Lu Lingzi who will triumph, not her attackers. She is the one whose legacy, strength and hopes to study, learn a new culture, and reach out to others of a different nation, with kindness, patience and ambition we will carry on. Her smile will stay with us and her memory will inspire us to keep working to do better in our work to make the world one and at peace and to encourage more like her to come abroad and better themselves so that, like Lu Lingzi, they will make America, China and the world finer for their having lived.

    We will grieve for you Lu Lingzi and for your parents, for China, for America, and for ourselves, all of us, because we, all of us, lost you. Without strain, weight, or toil, because of your own glowing inner light and gentleness, Lu Lingzi, we will keep you safe, in our hearts, forever.

    To the family and friends of Lu Lingzi,

    Please accept our deepest sympathy upon the tragic loss of your daughter, clearly a lovely and bright young woman who had much to offer the world. May this scholarship fund help others like her, and help her spirit live on in helping make the world a better and more beautiful and peaceful place.

    Peace and Love to all of you,

    Ken Grinnell, SFA ’74, STH ’76

    Though our daughter is a graduate student at another university, we are both alumni of BU and were involved in the music at Marsh Chapel. We were married there in l976.

    I am saddened to see your beautiful pictures on TV. Came from China and attended BU, I feel a deep sorrow to this tragedy. Wish you peace and cheerful!

  • Magnus, Anne, Sarah on 04.26.2013 at 10:25 pm

    Rest in peace, Lu Lingzi. Our 7 year old daughter was born in China, I wonder if she will look like you when she grows up. You must have been an extraordinary student and person. We did not know you, but we feel connected through our daughter. I hope your family in China learns about this scholarship. Maybe one day they will visit Boston. I hope they can take care of themselves now when you are not coming back to see them and support them.

  • Patricia Leclair on 04.27.2013 at 9:02 am

    I am so heartsick about the loss of your beloved daughter. I am the mother of a Chinese adopted daughter, she means everything to me and I cannot comprehend your loss. I know she will never be forgotten in your hearts or the hearts of the people of Ma. and the world.I hope you will feel the warmth of the many people who have a place in their hearts for all of you. Peace

  • The Tobin Family on 04.27.2013 at 1:58 pm

    To the Lu family. May the memory of your beautiful daughter live on in your hearts and those who she touched. We did not know her but we feel your deep sorrow as parents ourselves. We hope the collective thoughts and prayers of the community will bring some comfort to you. May she rest in eternal peace.

    致令子的父母:

    我并不认识吕令子,可是这两周来,我的心却跟你们家人亲友一样沉浸在深深地悲痛之中,无法停止对她的怀念。唯求耶稣基督,我们的救主深深地安慰你们的心,只有祂有属天的能力,也只有祂能安慰得了人的心。当你们心中伤痛难当时,愿你们能向耶稣基督祈祷而得安慰。 愿主保守你们。 多多保重,像女儿那样坚强乐观地活下去。

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.
    – Laurence Binyon

    Lest we forget.

  • Lissa Tyler Renaud on 04.29.2013 at 12:11 pm

    Your beautiful daughter was not only part of the BU community, or its community of international students, or of the Chinese community, but of the world community, and I send my horrified, saddened message of condolence as part of that world community. Our whole world has lost this bright, delightful young woman.

    My son is just on his way from California to the first “global university” in Shanghai–may our parts of the world come ever closer in our sympathies, so that we can lean on each other in times of grief such as this, and offer meaningful comfort. LU LINGZI: I will always remember her name.

  • Liming Liang on 05.01.2013 at 10:04 pm

    My deepest sorry for your loss. Ten years ago, I also came to the US to study statistics. Full of hope and curiosity, same as Lingzi. I hope my little help could make more people remember your lovely daughter. We are always with you and Lingzi.

  • Michael P. Cohen on 05.04.2013 at 9:42 pm

    Lingzi, I did not know you and am not affiliated with Boston University. But I am a statistician and a member of the statistical community as you were. You were full of promise, dedication, and talent. This makes me very sad. Rest in peace.
    Sincerely,
    Mike

  • Mary Ellen Frustaci on 05.06.2013 at 2:13 pm

    I echo Michael Cohen’s comments above. I have been a biostatistician for 16 years and feel a deep sense of loss to our community. Lingzi her family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Warmly,
    Mary Ellen Frustaci

  • Tom Lane on 05.29.2013 at 9:09 pm

    The Boston Chapter of the American Statistical Association would like to convey our sympathy to Lingzi’s family and friends. She was planning to attend our Career Day, and we looked forward to greeting her as our future colleague. We are so sad at her loss.

  • Kun on 01.31.2014 at 9:34 am

    I am so sorry for the loss of Lingzi’ family. As I am also from China, I know how difficult for the family to send their daughter to study abroad. I hope Lingzi can rest in peace.

  • Tianshan Cui on 04.15.2014 at 11:53 am

    I feel so sad for the loss of your daughter. Hope she can rest in peace. I know it’s hard to accept the truth, but please keep on to have a better life for her.
    作为同来美国求学奋斗的中国人,深深地替她感到惋惜。希望叔叔阿姨节哀顺变,请更好的替令子活下去。望逝者安息,生者安康。

  • 罗春兰 on 04.15.2014 at 11:01 pm

    我们家庭不认识您,可是我们希望您的旧生命永远。安息大姐。

  • Lingdi Zhang on 06.28.2014 at 9:48 pm

    I am sorry for the loss of Lingzi, and wish her peace in the heaven. I know how hard it is for her family to accept the loss of their lovely daughter, but I wish her family stay good and healthy.

  • Harold Borbridge on 07.16.2014 at 2:49 pm

    As parents, we’re so very sorry for the passing of your daughter. Her spirit remains strong and her example to move forward an inspiration for many … she and you are in our prayers and thoughts.

  • Jeanne Mei-Mei Chow on 04.15.2015 at 7:37 am

    Dear loving parents,
    I wish you and your family love to sooth the incredible loss of your daughter. I must tell you that my husband, a physician who was watching me run, rushed to your daughter when the bombs went off. He was there to comfort her and tried his very best to take care of her medically. I want you to know that at her very last moments, she was being cared for in loving hands. I have waited two years to contact you because the day is still very tragic in our hearts. I hope you know that there is a web of connections in this world, and somehow, we will all take care of each other. I sincerely hope that you are able to read this, and perhaps we will be in contact in person.

  • Dave on 04.16.2015 at 5:26 pm

    I’ll be thinking of Lingzi this year as I run the marathon. It’s a different event for me now–I hope seeing us all out there in Lingzi’s honor brings some peace. Because that’s what the event is about–happiness and peace.
