Dear Mike, Luke and Annie,

I heard this morning of JB&s passing and I&m so very sorry for your loss. I remember her most fondly from our days together at the Academic Advising Center here at UH. Her sense of humor and bright outlook were always a joy.

I wish you all comfort and peace as you move through these next days and weeks. Please take some strenth from the fact that many people around the world are thinking of you and sending you their love.

Best regards,

I first met JB through the Office of the Dean of Students, but we got together and talked often as we both worked in Young Hall. JB and I would share our latest findings in research of immune deficiency diseases. She was always sharing books with me and spoke words of hope and encouragement. I will miss JB&s fellowship and gentle spirit.

Hello Mike, Annie and Luke,
I was in Mike&s Int&l Education class (you were more than a good teacher) and in the King and I with Annie. I wanted to say how sorry I was to hear of the loss of your dear wife and mother. I cannot imagine your shock and grief. Please know that I grieve with you and for you. I did not know JB. I only met her once, but I heard Mike talk of her so often, of how you met and of your great experience in China. (You were married one week before I was.) I pray that these great memories will continue to comfort you now, and throughout the coming years. God Bless you and keep you,
Sincerely,
Theresa Replogle

Dear JB,

I miss you so much... There are so many things we were going to do
together in the fall; it is sad that we weren&t be able to do these things
anymore. Really glad you and your family were able to come to my
house two weeks ago. But who&d know that was the last time I can have
you over.

RIP....

Love,

Dear Mike, Luke, Annie and extended family,

I am unable to attend the service, but send my heart-felt condolences.

Though I have not met the three of you, JB was a very supportive colleague at Purdue and was there for me at a time of difficult transition. Her support helped me move forward in my career changes, as we both were doing so. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. You have many in the Purdue and West Lafayette community there to support you. Know too that others who have left Purdue do as well.

please take care,

Dear Mike, Luke and Annie:

Because my family is still in the midst of our move to New Braunfels, I am very sorry that I will not be able to attend the visitation and services for JB. However, my prayers will be lifted at those times for all of you. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you.

I am glad, no doubt because of the prompting of the Holy Spirit, that visiting all of you several weeks ago was part of my summer travels. I know that JB was in a lot of pain and yet she had a smile on her face the entire time. I am so glad Sarah was able to meet all of you, and especially JB, who I could tell had a special love for Sarah. I am sure Sarah will always cherish the ""hand me downs"" from Annie that JB gave her. In addition, I am sure she will always appreciate the special attention JB gave her during our visit.

It goes without saying that I was very sorry to hear of JB&s passing this morning by email. Although the miles have separated us since you all moved to Purdue, God has kept us close as members of the Body of Christ. Therefore, I pray that the God of all comfort will comfort you and your extended family at this time. In addition, I pray that He will enable you to share in JB&s eternal joy of now being in heaven with our Lord, Savior and Friend, Jesus Christ. I praise God that we can all look forward to seeing her again.

In Christ,

Bob Seese

What a shock to read of JB&s death. We are so sorry. We enjoyed working with JB doing the house inspection and listening to plans for the new house and planning the Radon Mitigation system.

Dear Luke and Annie,

I was shocked and immensely saddened when I found out about your mom. I guess since our parents are such good friends, it&s not much of a surprise we&ve known and been close to each other all throughout growing up. So I have many fond memories of playing with you guys, and being with your family, pretty much from my whole life. Your mom was always very kind, very wise, and very good to us; I&m very grateful that I was fortunate enough to have known someone as caring as her.

I was thinking of your family this morning. And I know that you guys will be able to find the strength of get through anything.

My deepest sympathies,

Nathan

Jim Kenaston left a message on August 16, 2010:
Dear Mike, Luke and Annie:

During this time of terrible grief, please consider these words from Psalm 139:

O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. You hem me in-- behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, ""Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,"" even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother&s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Lin Tian/Lingjia Zeng left a message on August 15, 2010:
Dear Mike, Luke and Annie,
We are shocked by the passing away of Lu Jia, our dear friend. We can not believe that your visit to our home last summer was the last time we see Lu Jia. Just a couple month ago, we had a phone conversation with Lu Jia and we talked a lot about the old friends and life in the States. We were deeply impressed that Lu Jia had expressed many times that she had a wonderful family. Although she had been suffering from serious diseases recent years, she never gave up her hope. Once she told us that she had three goals for her life: raise children, build a house and get a Ph.D. We are very proud of her that all the three goals had been accomplished.
At the moment of mourning your wife and mother, please accept our sincere condolences.
We will always remember Lu Jia&s smiling.
