Dear Lumbantoruan Family,
I am sorry for your loss. God bless him and his family.
June 12, 2007
I saw some pictures of the family grieving, and they struck me- I could see this person was so dear to them. I sympathize with your loss, and I'm sure that Patahi is still with you. I wish you lots of love and compassion and success in the future.

You will never be forgotten!

To Partahi's family and friends,
Our heavenly father, Jehovah (Ps. 83:18) promises at Isaiah 41:10 - "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not gaze about, for I am your God. I will fortify you. I will really help you. I will really keep fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness". May you grasp hold of his hand and allow him to guide you through the coming days, weeks, months and years.
Additional comfort may be gained from these scriptures:
Isaiah 25:8 - "He will actually swallow up death forever."
Revelation 21:4 - "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."
After the loss of my husband on 9/11, I have been greatly comforted by the word of God.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the sparkle in the snow.
I am the shredded leaves that blow.
I am the sunlight on growing grain.
I am the gentle summer rain.
I am the quiet bird at night.
Circling about; Taking flight.
So do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
May 01, 2007
Mora,
What a great gentle man you were. I fall in love with you and wished we had met before. Rest in peace, my Angel...
April 30, 2007
RISE UP SLOWLY, ANGEL

Rise up, slowly, Angel.
I cannot let you go.
Just drift softly midst the faces,
In sorrow now bent low.

Ease the searing anger,
Born in harsh unyielding truth
That Death could steal my loved one
From the glowing blush of youth.

Rise up slowly, Angel.
Do not leave me here alone,
Where the warmth of mortal essence
Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

Speak to me in breezes
Whispered through the drying leaves,
And caress my brow with raindrops
Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Rise up slowly, Angel,
For I cannot hear the song
Which calls you through the shadows
Into the light beyond.

Wrap me in your downy cape
Of sunshine, warm with love,
And kiss a tear-stained mother's face
With moonlight from above.

Then wait for me at sunset,
Beside the lily pond,
And guide me safely homeward
To your world,which lies beyond.

Just spread your wings and take me
In reunion’s sweet embrace,
And we shall soar, together,
To a different time and place.

To The Lumbantoruan Family:
I am writing this brief note to your family because I so deeply feel that when we are faced with the sudden loss of someone so very dear to us that it is one of the hardest things in our lives we will have to face. Yet, I would like to share with you something that touched my heart, it is the knowledge that God will respond to our persistent prayers to help us through any tough time such as this. At Philippians 4:6 and 7 it says that "the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your heart and your mental powers." Please know that my prayers are with you at this time and I urge you to continue to pray for strength to get through the rough moments ahead.

MY DEAREST BROTHER,
REST IN PEACE SWEET PRECIOUS BEAUTIFUL ANGEL
April 26, 2007
I am very sorry for your loss. I have experienced losses both anticipated and unexpected. When I was fifteen years old in my first year in high school, my mother died of melanoma at age 54 in December 2004; we were anticipating the loss. As with me, I am sure your loss is emotionally stressful for you and your family.

Your grief may ebb and flow. It has been said that each of us has this well deep inside of us that can be filled to the brim with grief. Every time we cry, we empty out some of the well. But the well fills again. The level of sorrow in your well may lessen as time passes, but it will never run dry. There will always be birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and those days when the well seems to fill to its brim again. Allow yourself time to remember and mourn. It is part of your healing. Grief is a continuing journey.

Partiahi Lumbantoruan wanted to stand in front of a class to teach
To see the eager faces his words would reach
Rising their hands to answer what’s asked
In their wanting to learn he would bask
The love of his family got him this far
They sold properties and several cars
He was their son, brother and friend
He smiled and never ever gave in
Partiahi was from Indonesia proud and great
He’d have been a dedicated teacher – one to emulate

April 23, 2007
I did not know you or your family. But I don’t believe there is a person in the world whose heart has not been touched by this tragedy. There is nothing in this life that brings us more sorrow than to lose loved ones in death. Even harder to bear is when the lives of loved ones are lost due to an unexpected tragedy. The shock can be overwhelming.
Be assured that God promises that he…”is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalms 34:18) Nothing can bring us more peace of mind than the inspired words of… the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Take comfort and solace in the Bible's message as we all await the time when GOD…” 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.” (Revelation 21:3,4)

Sorrowful tears
well up in my eyes
For those who have fallen
like rain from the skies

Each life was so precious
so many are gone
May they shine now from Heaven
like a new morning dawn

I cannot make sense
of this tragic event
I offer my heart
and my prayers have been sent

Each one had a dream
Each one had a goal
Each one had a family
Each one has a soul

Life must go on
for loved ones so shattered
Reach to their hearts
and show them it mattered

For families so lost
For friends left to cope
I greive for their hearts
I pray for their hope

In memory of those who have fallen and for those left to grieve.
For those left injured in harms way...
I pray for peace and healing of your hearts.
April 21, 2007

To Partahi's family and friends,

I did not know Partahi, but I have read much about him in these past few days. I was struck by how KIND he was. How humble. I found myself wishing that I had known him, as you all have.

May you cherish every memory you have of him, and may that bring you some comfort.

Though the attention turned to this tragedy may soon fade, many will always remember, and will keep you in prayers for many years to come. You may not know 'us,' but 'we' will pray for your family often, and hope you will feel that hope and joy in your hearts to overcome the sadness of these days.

Love,

April 20, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

"Forgive those of us who are still living and those who are dead; those of us who are present and those who are absent, and our minors and our elders.

In the name of Allah, (we bury) according to the way of the Prophet of Allah.

"Out of (the earth) I created you.
"And into it I deposit you.
"And from it I shall take you out once again."

"Then I pray that Allah may bestow upon you a great reward for this bereavement, and grant you patience and fortitude, and give you and us the courage to be grateful to Him for His favours. The fact is that our lives and our near and dear ones are sacred gifts to us from Allah Who has given those in our charge only temporarily. He allowed us to benefit from the gifts for as long as He willed and withdrew them as and when He willed. And in return for this (apparent loss), He will bless you with higher rewards of His special favours, Mercy and guidance, provided that you display fortitude for His sake and for the sake of the benefits of the Hereafter."

A modification of the Tradition Muslim prayer for our departed professor Lambantoruan, proof that Death is no respector of persons and that he will be remembered for all of the good and kind deeds he did when he was among us and the lessons that he taught live on in the works of his students.

A nation is in mourning for him.

Cry and prayer for Partahi Mamora Halomoan Lumbantoruan, my former roommate
April 19, 2007
My husband and I are very sorry for your loss. Please know that God is with you.
April 19, 2007
I was shock and deeply sad when I saw that one of the victim is from Indonesia. I was deeply sad and trying to calm myself when I know that you are from Tano Batak. One of our Batak Song said that "ANAK KON HI DO HAMORAON DI AHU" Mean that Partahi is everything to his parents. They sold everything they have in order to send him to School here in VT, but know he is gone forever. For the family in North Sumatra please be strong, we pray for you and for Partahi. May God be with you.

Love & Prayers

Others' memories of you touched me-- you are a perfect example of the promise and bright futures that were taken away from us that day. I am proud you chose my alma mater to further your education. May you rest in peace and sunshine, we will remember you always.

My heart and prayer goes to your family in Indonesia. You have shown a great spirit in pursuing education, I admired it greatly. Now rest in peace. Selamat jalan Bang Mora.
April 19, 2007
He was quiet, serious, and a very hard worker. I will not, however, remember him in this way. Mora, to me, will always be a friendly passing smile and a good conversation. Under the shy outward demeanor, there was a warm and gentle man that I consider myself fortunate to have known, even if it was only for a few short months. It hurts badly to know that he is gone. Thanks for everything, Mora.
April 18, 2007
This is a tragedy for all Americans. I know we are thousands of miles away, but we feel your grief and would take it from you if we could. Take one day at a time. It's not true that time will heal. I know that firsthand. But what will carry you is the grace of God and his love that he has for you. And, his strong hand that will gently lead and guide you each day if you trust him. Lean on him for he is strong as we our weak. We're praying for you all that you'll be strengthened and comforted with Gods peace.

He took with him, the things that matter- his experiences and expanded knowledge. He leaves with you, your shared experiences and knowledge. He continues a few steps before you on the same shared path- may you be healed with the love and peace, within which he holds your hearts, and now dwells himself- waiting for you to soon follow. May God bless you all, family and friends.

To the parents and family:
My husband and I lost our only child, a beautiful young lady, many years ago. It was the worst thing I've ever been through, and I didn't know how life could go on for us, but gradually, the pain has diminished. We're talking about a seven to ten year window, here, so you will have to work through it. The word 'Waves' comes to mind. Over time, they will be smaller and further apart. Don't let anyone try to rush you through your grieving, but DO try to get busy with something to take your mind off of it. Nothing will fill the void of a lost child, but they would want you to move on and enjoy life. The love between a parent and child can last forever, and someday I believe you will see your baby, again. My heart goes out to you and I share a little of your pain, because I know how it feels. No one should have to bury their child, but we have to trust God, who gave them to us.
April 18, 2007
Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. God Bless you.
April 18, 2007
We offer our deep sympathy, prayers and condolences in the loss of your loved one. We pray that you find strength, courage and peace in your loved one's beautiful memory.
