Father, thank you for the gift of your son Jesus Christ. Thank you Father that we shall see Reema again someday. In the meantime, she is doing your will and you are taking very good care of her.
Father, give us peace and joy in that knowledge.
In your precious name,

November 16, 2008
I know that she is dancing with the angels in heaven. What a beautiful young woman. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
October 06, 2008
well, even in Africa we know about Reema and what happened on the 16th of April last year.
My name is Maria and i?m from Mozambique...
Reema touched me in an indistinctness way. i'm 18 years old, i'm studying the same that she was, i dance as well and dancing is my passion and inspiration, i love nature and my best friend is from Lebanese. it's beautiful to see that her joy for life, her gorgeous smile full of happiness, her energy and beauty are flying over the all world. and even for those who didn't have the chance to know her, like me, she brings peace. everyone discovers a little about their selves in Her. She is inspiring so many people by what and how she was, and because it was an enormous loss. it seems she was a beautiful person, always there for her friends and family, with a lot to give in Her life....success, love, career, family,friends and health....she was so young, her life was only beginning but now, remains the question and imagination.....what if she was still here?
my heart goes out to her, to her family....what a respectful father, i saw Reema's father on the news a day after the incident, and there he was, remembering Her beautiful life, and not her last moments, and i am great full to had shared that 10 minute's memory whit him from so far away in spite of not knowing Remma. As a mother i must say that i understand how it feels like, but i must admit that i can not imagine how it feels like.
so...rest in piece little Angel, my love to all of her friends, family, and colleagues who lost their life on that day, and don?t worry, be happy up there, because you will be remembered by all everyday, while their dancing, smiling, walking in the woods, learning French, taking pictures or celebrating a birthday.
your presence here on Earth was short, but for sure it will be eternal in the hearts of those who love you, and you used to love in return.
i will think of you on my next show, on saturday, before i go on stage.
the best of all, and its sad to have to know you by what happened and have to IMAGINE how you were in life, because time does not go back.
now shine and bring your light to the stages on the life of those who are thinking of you.

Reema,
I knew from the very first day I met you that you were special. You have inspired me in the dance world and have given me a new meaning to life. Love you, miss you.

Love,
Your CDE Mommy
June 30, 2008
I'm glad you dance with the angels now; I'm sad that you can't share that with those left behind. It's good to see you are loved forever by so many near and far, even sight unseen. The world is made less bright without your footsteps; where you are in Heaven, I wish you every joy and eternal peace.
June 28, 2008
Never before was I inspired to get involved in activities within my school and community until hearing about Reema and how her life was filled with joy because she did what she was passionate about. Hearing about how much of an impact she made on the people in her life inspired me to get involved and I am truely grateful for that because it has made me a better person.
I am deeply sorry that such a beautiful family had to lose such a beautiful child. My heart is with you and it always will be. Take comfort in knowing that Reema is in a brighter happier place looking down on her family and friends, smiling.
June 19, 2008
Reema, our dear angel: I can still see your beautiful face, only now, it is shining down upon us from heaven. May you remain eternal with God as He blesses your peaceful soul.
June 17, 2008
Sweet Angel,

I know you will be enjoying a glorious heavenly birthday on the 23rd. You have our Lord and Saviour as your guest of honor. My love goes out to you and your beautiful family. You are an angel of light. Beautiful soul, I love you!

April 16, 2008
My thoughts and prayers are with Reema, her parents, and her siblings on this day.

I read somewhere I think that it was ur birthday sometime or another so happy birthday in Heaven! I never met you on this earth but save me a hug and kiss in Heaven when I get there sweetie! I love you! I wont forget you! Love, Julie .
January 02, 2008
I never met you Reema, but I haven't forgotten about you. I felt empty celebrating the New Year today and went online to look at your beauty, your passion, your purpose on this planet that was all too soon taken away from all of us. Perhaps I feel connected to you b/c I am also a female of Lebanese descent, but no matter what the reason(s),I want you to know that you will forever be in my heart as will your family. . .Allah yirhamek (God rest/bless your soul).
October 24, 2007
REEMA!!! why did u have to go?!!!!?!?!?!? WHY?!??? im miserable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! without u!!!!!!!
October 18, 2007
Sweet Angel, today I went to visit you. Thank goodness I speak spanish. The crew assigned to you helped me find you. When I prayed, I looked to heaven for I know you are there dancing for Jesus and His heaven host of angels and saints. I prayed for your family. May Christ grant them peace that surpasses all human understanding. I did not know you personally however, your name, physical features and talents remind me of our daughter. I have adopted you in my heart. I hope that is ok.
October 17, 2007
Keep smiling and dancing with angels in heaven we love you, Et si nous écoutons notre cœur, nous éprouverons clairement la douceur de l’amour que t’apporteras et quand il sera temps pour nous de partir, tu seras là pour nous accueillir.
October 03, 2007
To Reema's Family:
I have never been so affected by the life of someone whom I did not have the chance to meet. Reema represents so many things to me and her life has become an example I share with my young children. I love how she truly engaged the world in so many ways, through dance, travel, her academic interests, her friends and you. While it's true I only know her from the stories and photos that have been posted, it's clear to me that we should all strive to be more like her. I really wanted you to know these thoughts.
With my deepest regards and respect,
David
September 12, 2007
I never knew reema nor any other of the victims, I had only just moved to va from england, but from everything ive heard about her, and the pictures of her. she was incredibly talented, and very beautiful.
My heart goes out to her whole family.
September 01, 2007
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
August 27, 2007
Dear Samaha Family,
I am sorry for your loss. God bless her and her family.
August 22, 2007
reema i miss you more and more each day. sometimes i cry but when i do i just look at pictures of you and just seeing your smile makes me smile. i know you wouldn't want me to cry and i know you already know this but whenever i see a picture of you doing something crazy or i think about any of the times we had together i just can't help but laugh. and i know that is exactly what you would want. i miss you and i love you.
August 05, 2007

July 02, 2007
I remember when Reema was pretty little baby, my mom use to clean her grandmas house. I truly can say that I hurt for the family. May God be with the whole Samaha family. Smile everything is going to be alright!!!!

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

June 12, 2007
When I saw the picture of Reema and saw what an amazing person she is, I was very sad for the family. I saw her dad on a video, and he was very brave, and courageous. You did such a wonderful job raising such a beautiful woman, very obvious from her photographs. I wish you and the family much love and compassion and success in the future, and I know Reema is with you.
June 09, 2007
I'm Reema's cousin from Luxembourg
I think about her every single day
it is an honor to have her as my cousin
We love you Reema
June 08, 2007
The world has lost an amazing women, and heaven has gained an amazing angel!

RIP Reema
June 08, 2007
I want to say I am so sorry for your loss. She seemed like a amamzing Girl. I was on myspace one night and seen the amamzing Memoril site in Memory Of Reema Samaha. Its a must see. It really honors her and she will always be rememberd. She wanted to change the world she did. Please take the time to see this site.

May you rest in peace Reema.
May 30, 2007
To the Samaha family:
I am very sorry for the lost of Reema, I know how hard it is to lose one of the beloved people in your family, I hope you all can cope with the lost. Reema is such a beautiful women, she have a bright future ahead of her, all of sudden her life was taken tragically. Reema will always be in our heart.
May 28, 2007
In loving memory of Reema. She will
never be forgotten. She and her
family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers all the time.
May 26, 2007
I watched in horror and sadness the events that day and saw the faces of the people taken. Your daughter stole my heart, she was so talented and beautiful. May she rest in peace ... below is a poem that comforted my parents when my brother died: I cannot say, and I will not say
That she is dead. She is just away.
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
She has wandered into an unknown land.
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be since she lingers there.
And you-O you, who the wildest yearn
For the old-time step and the glad return-
Think of her faring on, as dear
In the love of there as the love of here;
Think of her still as the same, I say;
She is not dead-she is just away!
May 25, 2007
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN. THAT IS THE MOST WONDERFUL SMILE I HAVE EVER SEEN. REEMA SAMAHA IS THE KIND OF YOUNG WOMAN EVERY PARENT CAN BE PROUD OF. I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE TO PROTECT HER ON THAT TERRIBLE DAY. I HOPE HER PARENTS TAKE SOME COMFORT KNOWING SHE'S IN HEAVEN.
May 25, 2007
You will never be forgotten!
May 23, 2007
Well Reema! So far you have given me four songs that I wrote for you. There are many more coming in your honor that will be released as a tribute cd if permission is given by your beautiful family.
May 23, 2007
I had never met Reema, nor have I ever met the Sahama family, but oh what a great family they seem to be. What a tragedy to lose their beloved daughter. May you find comfort in knowing that you will indeed see her again.
May 22, 2007
AS i read about Reema ties rolled down my chicks. May God almight comfort the family of Semaha. Rest in peace Reema, God loved you more that we all did. Soon and very soon we will be seeing you.
May 22, 2007
god bless you
May 21, 2007
My family and I will never forget Reema and the other victims. She followed her brother, she became a Hokie and we will honor her forever.
May 20, 2007
This is so terrible. It is hardly believable. Only god has the power to help you and heal your wounds. My wife and I pray for you every day. May god be with you in these most difficult times

May 20, 2007
To the family and friends: Look to the hills for wich cometh your help! I dont know you all but felt like we are one in times of sorrow.. Words cannot describe the sorrow I feel for you... I will keep you all lifted in all the days to come. I read that your loved one was a dancer... I myself dance and from this day forth every time I perform I will keep your precious Reema in my heart to help guide my every step!!

From a college student and dancer to another!
May 19, 2007
To the Samaha Family, being Lebanese, we felt like she was one of our own. With deepest sympathy may God give you the strength to bear your loss.
May 17, 2007
May Reema rest in peace. She was a remarkable woman with a love for her culture that is inspirational. May her memory be everlasting in the hearts and minds of those who loved her.
May 16, 2007
God Bless you Reema, and god bless your family. You are one of the best and most pure people on this earth.You have reall affected my life in a positive way.you are an angel.
May 16, 2007
Rest In Peace!
May 15, 2007
Dear Family and friends:
I wanted to share just a few words of comfort and hope. “If a man die, shall he live again?” asked the man Job long ago. (Job14:14 KJV) Well, the Bible makes the promise: “Your dead ones will live... They will rise up.” And the Bible also says: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it. Isa. 26:19; Ps. 37:29 I pray that you will draw close to Jehovah in prayer and the Bible promises that “he himself will sustain you.” Ps. 55:22
May 15, 2007
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
May 11, 2007
To Samaha family,
I am so so sorry for your loss. When I saw you on tv talking about Reema, I could not help but cry. I felt like I know you and that I lost someone close to me. You remind me of my family, Lebanese who have left Lebanon for a better and safer life. God does things for a reason, I pray for you, she is in better place, may she rest in peace, and may God give you the strength you need to go on. The picture of her grandparents featured in the Annahar newspaper does not leave my mind.
Alla yerhama
May 10, 2007
I Love you Reema! You will always me my cousin.
May 09, 2007
My sincere condolences to Reema's family. I knew Mona, Reema's Mom in Lebanon long time ago through my cousins. My heart goes to all members of her family. May God bless you and give you the strength to go through this and may Reema's spirit guide you to peace.
May 08, 2007
Reema has truly affected my life. I feel as though i knew her, and my heart breaks for her entire family. May God bless Reema and have a special seat saved for her in Heaven. My deepest, deepest sympathies.
May 08, 2007
I am extremely sorry for your loss. She seems like she was a wonderful young woman. Its a shame her life was cut so short.
May 07, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. I'm praying for you!!!!
May 07, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
May 07, 2007
Dear Samaha Family, I was not fortunate enough to know her, and I keep reading about her now like so many others around the world. I see her photos and watch her videos. What grace! What beauty! Dear Mr. Samaha, your wish for her has been granted. The world is her stage now. I would love to see more of her performances, dances, acting if you have videos. I'll keep looking on the internet to find more of her. She will live on...

TO THE FAMILY:

I KNOW WHAT A LOSS THIS MUST HAVE BEEN FOR YOUR FAMILY. I KNOW SOME OF YOUR FAMILY IN BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA SINCE MY SISTER IS MARRIED TO JAMES EDWARD GEORGE, WHO IS THE SON OF ED AND ROSE GEORGE. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY AT THIS TIME.
May 03, 2007
I never knew you Reema, but I whih I could have. Alex told me all about you. You were a gift to the world, and now you rest like a child in the arms of our Father. May the peace of Christ be with you,and may God who transcends all understanding keep you in his heart forever.
May 02, 2007
Bless your beautiful daughter! I hope you can find peace.. We will forever keep her in our hearts!
May 02, 2007
To The Reema Samaha Family:
In the midst of a tragedy may your obvious, strong faith sustain you as your mourn the loss of one so vibrant and precious to you. We search for answers to this hideous and senseless act, and yet there does not seem to be any. Your daughter lived a very meaningful life in her short years and that reflects so much on her family. A precious life can be taken away so quickly, but one thing that you can treasure that can't be snatched away are the beautiful memories that you shared as a family. May God truly comfort you all as you continue to mourn the loss of your loved one.
May 02, 2007
May God be with you and heal your broken heart. I do not know what it is like to lose a child, but I can only imagine the pain you are going through at this present time. R.I.P. Reema and may God be with you for eternity.
May 02, 2007
You must be very proud of having a beautiful daughter that shined so brilliantly in so few years! Her smile (in photos) touched me deeply and her eyes reflected God's love. My family had the pleasure and honor of growing up in Father Joe's church with the Samaha family. Joe we are so sorry for your family's loss. You all have been in our thoughts and prayers. Reema's life will live on in so many hearts.

May God be with you through this sad time. As treasurer of the Cedar Club of Atlanta, we offer our deepest sympathies to the entire Samaha family. The purpose of our Club is to preserve our Lebanese heritage, and it appears that through her dancing Reema valued her heritage as well. What a wonderful person, daughter and sister, Reema must have been. God bless you all.
May 01, 2007
I don't know you and your family but my heart goes out to you. God will heal all wounds. I never meet your daughter but what i saw on T.V. she seem like a very special person almost like an Angel. So now she can have wings. May God Bless you and your Family.
May 01, 2007
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
Joey, our hearts are weeping with you and your beautiful family. Reema is now dancing in heaven....

Dear Joseph, Mona, Omar, and Randa,
My family wishes to express our deepest condolences on the loss of your absolutely beautiful daughter, Reema. Through your courage and dignity, you shared your beautiful child with us. I was adopted in Beirut, Lebanon in 1962. When we saw your family's pictures and interviews, we were so very moved by the resemblances of Reema to my daughter, Lindsey and of Omar to my son, Bryan. We are praying for your family daily and we pray the Lord wraps His loving arms around you always. Our hearts ache for your loss and for all that Reema could have contributed to this world. Her loss is a profound loss to humanity, but our faith gives us confidence that her beautiful and kind spirit are in Heaven where she is one of God's most beautiful angels. May God bless you for your bravery in the face of such tragedy and for your generosity of sharing your beautiful daughter and sister with us. Reema's beautiful smile and eyes will always be etched in our hearts. May God bless and keep you. Lisa and family

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.
April 30, 2007
I am so deeply sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family.

To The Reema Samaha 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.
April 30, 2007
Not only do I share your last name-I am probably distantly related to you. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to your beautiful family. Seeing the media coverage made everything become so close to everyone's heart. There are no words anyone could express to adequately comfort you in the loss of your child, sister, friend - May God Bless you.
April 29, 2007
Rest in peace. I hope God watches over you and gives your family strenght

As owner of a dance studio, I feel so blessed to make a living doing what I love that I feel the need to give back as much as I can. Every year we hold our dance recital as benefit performance to honor a cause or individual close to our hearts.

I don't live in the USA. The first time I saw the victims was on an article on TIME magazine.

I have read many articles this pastdays regarding Reema. This world has lost an angel. A beautiful women who was going to make something of her self.

I did not have the fortune of meeting her but she will always be in my prayers. RIP Reema.

The potential and love in her eyes is so clear. I hope your family finds solace and peace somehow and please know that you are in our prayers and daily thoughts.
April 27, 2007
When I read the story and heard Reema's brother speak about how special Reema was - it was then I realized she was not only special but an extraordinary person. Reema had a talent (dance) that I enjoyed immensely as a child and as an adult it remains my biggest passion. With that being said, Reema expressed PASSION and with that she will forever remain glorious in everyone's heart. Reema had a heart of gold and a smile full of bursting sunshine. May Reema continue to bring light to your family always....for she was the extra angel God needed to cleanse the world!

I would like to express my deepest condolences to the Samaha family during this difficult time. May Reema rest in peace dance forever in your hearts....
April 27, 2007

April 27, 2007
Father we entrust our sister Reema to your mercy. You loved her greatly in this life: now that she is freed from all its cares, give her happiness and peace forever. Welcome her now into paradise where there will be no more sorrow, no more weeping or pain, but only peace and joy with Jesus your Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
May God hold Reema in the palm of His hand. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My deepest sympathy.

April 27, 2007
Samaha Family,
After I saw Reemas picture, this horrible tragedy assumed a face for me, and until now its hard not to think about your familys feelings.
The truth is that I have no idea what your going through, but I feel sorry that all this happend. Not only because of the pain you all must be feeling, but because it seems that the world lost such a nice person. I feel so much, and as much as just words can be a meanliness in a momento of profound sadness, I needed to say something for you.
Sorry for not be able to do anything for you in a moment like this, but I cant see how to forget the face of Reema, and she will be in my memory.
April 26, 2007
Reema,
May you rest in peace and give your family strenth to move on with life. Your family was on the news and it break s my heart everytime ive seen them. in my thoughts and prayers

DEAR SISTER,
REST IN PEACE SWEET BEAUTIFUL PRECIOUS ANGEL
April 26, 2007
I cannot find the words to tell you how very sorry I am for your loss. Reema was a beautiful, talented young woman and I can only imagine the joy she brought to you and how much she will be missed. I tell myself that there is a greater plan that we can't know, but it's hard to understand when such a senseless tragedy occurs. May God bless you and help you through this terrible time. Many thoughts and prayers are with you and all the families of the others.
April 26, 2007
To the Samaha family
This is not a loss it is a passage into joyful activities. Reema so young yet achieved what many hope and dream to accomplish. She taught the dance, she danced, her face light up when she does what she wanted to do most. To myself and some others watching from afar, from TV it seems we have known her for ever. Can't you see her calm demeanor, see the steps, she made the Lebanese folks dances seem like play yet she was adding her quota to the world at large. The fellows she taught the dance can now teach others, she was a teacher who made a permanent statement in passing joy to others. We must rejoice in her passing for she fulfilled in such a short time. Reema loves you all, and could only but hope mom dad and all others could rejoice with her for her achievement and be happy to know that at least she is happy and want you to be happy too. love, dance, play the music and dance for Reema a happy dancer will dance with you. Reema loves you all
April 26, 2007
April 26, 2007
What a very very sad story. I have thought about Reema and many others that were gone and I sincerely send you my deepest sympathy & condolences. I wish you strength as you go through this difficult time.
April 26, 2007
My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
May God be with you all. Allah yerhamh and give you the strength.
April 26, 2007
May Reema live forever in the heavens with God and dance above with the same grace and spirit she did on earth. I pray for the Samaha family that they know her love will never end but has been eternalized through her passion and faith in God. Allah Akbar.
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.
April 26, 2007
i am a french girl and i saw whats happened in VT on tv,it made me really sad and i cryed when i saw the story of reema, she was so young and so pretty!i think she was an artist too!!!
i pray for her and her familly, im with u through the miles...love!
April 26, 2007
Reema Samaha is a dancer with class
Who played Aunt Martha with sass
“Fiddler on the Roof” she won an award
Dance captain in “Oklahoma!” she was adored
The international Festival she choreographed
She had the ability to make others laugh
She was upbeat with energy to spare
She brought her Lebanese heritage to her art with care
There was no dancing without her
She hears music her body starts to stir
Reema a daughter, a sister, an artistic friend with artsy grooves
Remember her spark, her talent, her laughter and her creative moves

May God Bless this family.

Please accept my sincerest condolences over the terrible loss of your family member. Often, life makes no sense. To think that you escaped the war in Lebanon last summer only to have to suffer this horrible loss...words fail me.

We are heart struck over the senseless actions of one individual. Our thoughts are with you. After the tears stop flowing and the pain softens try to remember the time you shared with your loved one and the memories you made, Memories are eternal and forever and know one can take that away from you.
April 25, 2007
When we lost our 21-year-old daughter, also a college student, in a tragic car crash six years ago we never would have thought anyone would understand the pain we have been feeling. But to Reema's family, know that there are thousands who know what you are feeling and we know that while the pain will never ever go away, it will gradually ease and you will one day be able to smile again when you think of the times you cherished with Reema. This is a time when you are feeling tremendous support from people all over the world. Soon you will be alone with your grief and you will need to support each other as never before. Seek counseling; seek out others like you as I am with this message. You will find comfort and strength, and Reema will remain forever. I wish you all the best in this difficult journey.
April 24, 2007
Reema's beauty and joyful memories will always live in your heart. Her wonderful smile touched the hearts of so many. May God give you comfort and healing during these tragic times.
April 24, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.

It is so shocking what happened on that sorrowful day
In my prayers you will forever stay
Although we never met and I did not know you
This is a poem for you to say my adieu
It is a shame you can not be with us today
Due to everything that happened I am still in dismay
Now you are up in a better place
We will never forget your honor and grace
Please look over us, protect us from dangers
You are missed by your family and countless strangers
I wanted to let you know you are in the thoughts of many
Condolences and commiserations are aplenty
I bless your family hope they stay strong
In my thoughts they will always belong
I say to you and the other decease
I wish that you all rest in peace

What a beautiful young lady! By the things we have read and the things we have watched on TV, we could see that Reema was a blessing to all of those she came in contact with. Our loss, heaven's gain. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on TV and showing to the world just how important family is. Thank you for sharing your daughter with so many over the years. Even in her death, she will be rememebered for the special person she was. Our family will continue to pray for you in the days and months yet to come. Cherish the memories of such a beautiful life in sometimes such a messed up world.
April 24, 2007

Love,

Dear Mona, Joe, Omar and Randa,
and the whole Samaha Family;

We are of Lebanese descent too. The tragic, horrible death of beautiful Reema touched so many. Watching the T.V. interviews with the family was so sad. What a loss to endure for a loving family as yours. Reema's beautiful, radiant face expressed a lot of love for life, and dreams come true. Her accomplishments were a reflection of a proud Lebanese soul. We want you to know that you are in our prayers during this tough time. May her memory be eternal. God blesss and keep you strong together, Amen.

Dear Joseph Samaha & Family,

Your daughters beautiful face and smile remains in our hearts and minds forever.

My family and I are from the Blacksburg's surrounding area and had the privilege of seeing Reema dance on stage at the International Festival in VA Tech the day before the tragedy. She shined on stage with her beautiful and unforgettable smile. I was sure from the glow in her face that she was a kind young lady, full of passion and spirit.

While at a much smaller scale, I do feel your pain, as I too lost my mother in an unexpected and tragic way. Perhaps we can all try to cope by remembering the life that she lived and honoring what she wanted in her life. Her soul will be watching over us, as an angle.
April 24, 2007
Your love for Reema was expressed so eloquently. I was touched by her grace and beauty . I was also especially touched by her pride in her Lebanese heritage.
April 24, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
April 24, 2007
Meine Gedanken sind bei Dir, möge unserer gütiger Gott Dir ewigen Frieden schenken.
April 24, 2007
Dear Samaha Family,
You and Reema are in my prayers always. I am so sorry for your loss,she didn't deserve this at all, but we all have to remember that God does things for a reason. Although i did not know Reema, i felt like i did from the pictures that i saw and the way you all spoke of her, i felt as if i've known her for such a long time. She is an angel and she's shining down on us. May she rest in peace and may your family make it through this difficult time. You have all the beautiful and wonderful memories of her, eventhough she's not physically here with us, her presence is. Stay strong and things will be okay. God bless you all.

Deepest Sympathy to You and Your family. I do not know your family but
was so touched by your close family values that I heard during your
media interview. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this very tragic time.
April 24, 2007
I am at a loss for words, what a beautiful woman. For some reason I am drawn to her beauty and spirit, how could you not be drawn to her. I never knew Reema but I wish I had had the chance to know her. To her parents, brother, sister, family and friends, my thoughts and prayers will be with you always. You all have a beautiful angel watching over you until you meet again.
April 24, 2007
To the family of Reema Samaha:

I do not know you personally, but I truly feel your pain. As the older sister of a college freshman (soon-to-be college sophomore), it hurts me more to think of what would've been. To Randa, I too can understand on your very close relationship with your best friend and younger sister. The relationship you had with her is the exact same relationship I have with my sister as she is also 18. Your family is in my prayers.
April 24, 2007
Dearest Samaha Family,
You might find it odd that someone you don't know was so touched by your daughter's photo and life accomplishments it makes my heart ache that my family and I did not meet her. Maybe because the similarities of your family are so close to mine. Upon seeing Reema's beautiful photo's I saw my own daughter's, they share the same gorgeous Lebanese eyes, my eldest daughter also a freshman in university this year, is a dancer and also loved to take pride in her Lebanese heritage. They would have been great friends. I also have a son and saw how much your Omar loved his sister. There are no words to say how sorry I am and I will pray for your family.
Our deepest sympathy. Ramzi Albaba, Kerri Albaba, and Aydah, Khalid, & Lilah.
April 24, 2007
Dear Joseph Samaha and Family
I am from Birmingham, Alabama. I too am of Lebanese descent I am probably about your age as my children are your childrens' ages. I grew up with some Smahas (name spelled slightly different than yours), but I am told they are distantly related to you.

Anyway, I really wanted to tell you that though I don't know you, I do feel such sorrow with you all and when I see the pictures of that beautiful angel of yours I just want to cry out to God why. Yet He tells us in Holy Scripture that He knows our sorrow and our pain so He can aid us when we suffer so. (Epistle to the Hebrews)

I know you are Melkite. Such is my heritage. I wish I could meet you and your family. However, I do hold you all up in my prayers as does my family. God bless you and yours, Joseph.

In His Love,

Michael Joseph Pharo

After seeing all the beautiful pictures and rememberances of Reema,I am sure that an angel walked among us.

I am so sorry for your loss. Reema is loved by many and her memory will be cherished forever. I know I will never forget her.

May God give you strength and comfort.

Dearest Samaha Family,

Everytime I see a photo of your beautiful daughter and sister, my heart aches. I, and my peers at UC Hastings Law School, watched as you courageously and eloquently introduced Reema to the world. She was a star, and now shines down upon you.

Reema is in all of our hearts and you are in our prayers. I will never forget her, and neither will the world.

Peace,

There are no words to describe this horrible event. Our prayers are with Reema's family and all of the victims and students of Virginia Tech. God be with us all.
April 23, 2007
Dear Samaha Family:
I don't know what to say to you other than I'm so very sorry about the tragic loss of your beautiful Reema. As a mother of 2 daughter's, I can only imagine the excruciating agony you must be feeling as parents. Unfortunately, there are no words in this broad English language to describe what happened last week, and even if there were, it wouldn't be enough to fill the void in your hearts.

Although we're total stranger's, I feel so incredibly drawn to your family, and I have cried so much for Reema, for your family, and for the other innocent people as though you were all a part of my life. I'll continue to pray for you, and may God bless and comfort you until you are reunited with your beautiful Reema in eternity. You raised a magnificent young woman and I thank you so much for sharing her with the world last week during your courageous, touching interviews. I deeply regret that it had to be in this way.

Finally, please stay strong for each other and may you find some comfort in knowing that this nation is praying for you all.
April 23, 2007
To the Samaha Family;
May Christ reach down to each of you and comfort your hearts. I know they are torn. I have been layed up this week from surgery last week and have grown to love your family and have prayed for your comfort and all the other families that had losses on April 16th. My beloved family don't you worry about a thing she is in very good hands. She is still dancing, laughing and growing her angel wings. Christ has called her home. I am sure she is amongst her friends. God bless you and your family.
April 23, 2007
I am deeply saddened by the lost of your loved one. At times like these it is comforting to know that the Bible tells us at Acts 24 verse 15 that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. So with that knowledge, know that there is a hope that you will see your loved one again.
April 23, 2007
The impact of all I have read and heard of this woman with a glowing interior and exterior makes me very sad that I didn't have the privilege and honor of knowing such a beautiful human being. I saw the interviews with family members and have wept constantly for the voids which are irreplaceable in your hearts. God bless and hold you tightly. My heart, love, prayers and thoughts are with you. That beautiful smile of Reema's is smiling upon you and will be forever in your hearts--and ours for the impact she has made on those who never even knew her, she has touched our lives..Gone too soon. With deepest sympathy.
April 23, 2007
God bless you

Dear Samaha Family,

My deepest condolences to you on the tragic loss of your beautiful daughter and sister. I did not know her but have seen several interviews with Reema's family members and it just breaks my heart to imagine what your family must be going through. I was especially impressed with the brother and sister of Reema and how courageous they were to speak to the media of their sister and their parents' grief. I thought of Reema's funeral today and what a dark day it must have been for your family. In times like these, we must remember that we are all servants of God who will be called upon one day and that day came painfully soon for Reema. She is now one with God and as the Bible says, there is no greater happiness than that. May the Lord bless your family as you cope with this immense grief and may you be comforted in knowing that you'll all be reunited with Reema one day again.

I never got the honor of meeting your daughter but heard many amazing things about her and you from my cousins who attended Herndon Elem French Progam. When they called me and told me about Reema we all cried together. From what I have seen I missed a quite amazing young women who would have taken this world by storm. Even though she didnt do it the way anyone planned she did take the world by storm with that smile.
My thoughts and prayers are with you
April 23, 2007
I am truly so very sorry for your loss. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
April 23, 2007
May you rest in peace Reema. You were a beautiful person and dancer and you will always be remembered. God bless

Fly, fly little wing, Fly beyond imagining The softest cloud, the whitest dove Upon the wind of heaven's love Past the planets and the stars Leave this lonely world of ours.

Fly, fly precious one Your endless journey has begun Take your gentle happiness Far too beautiful for this Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet........

Fly, fly do not fear Your heart is pure, your soul is free Be on your way, Above the universe you'll climb On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set

But we won't forget

Fly, fly little wing Fly where only angels sing Fly away, the time is right Go now, find the light ...........

Dear Samaha Family and Friends,

Love. Peace. Strength. Know how many people love you and Reema, and how often our worldly thoughts and prayers are sent your way to ease the pain of your broken hearts. Know that Reema is always by your sides every time you think of her, to protect you and be with you always. She is still here and will be with you when you need her most. You will notice the signs which will give you a sense of delight and serenity, if only for a moment. Listen for her dancing around your home. You might catch a whiff of her perfume. Perhaps you'll hear her laughing, just to keep you company.

The world is very sad to have lost Reema and her peers at Virginia Tech. We must allow ourselves to grieve and be angry for as long as time will allow. The final step is Forgiveness which will free our hearts to enable us to move forward and continue living our lives. She knows everything now and is dancing blissfully with your ancestors. She is in Heaven because she is within all of you.

God bless you, Reema Samaha. Your passion lives on in all of us. I will do what I will to honor you every time I take a dance class. I've been trying to continue my passion, but trying is not enough. I will dance for you and I will dance for me.

Samaha family, I am a close friend of Mary Farrah in DC. She emailed that she knows you and grew up with Reema at church. I am so sad for everyone related to VT victims. I wish I could do something for you to ease your pain. I love you all.

I danced Ballet from 5 to 16, studied Flamenco for 3 1/2 years, and have recently begun learning Belly Dancing. As a dancer I can absolutely relate to Reema's spirit of dance. I never knew her personally, but I feel like I lost a best friend. She is stunning! Please start a memorial fund for her or especially a scholarship fund in her honor for dance because I want to contribute.

I grew up in the Columbine area. I live a mile from Columbine HS. This community was already strong before our tragedy, but has become stronger since. I am most impressed with the families of the victims who truly demonstrate Pride and Strength. They have moved forward and so will you because Reema will help you get there.

I lost my mother a few years ago to cancer. None of us were ready. The word for the pain I experienced, Omar, is "Raw." I felt completely turned inside out. I want you to know you will get through this because Reema wants that for you and you are blessed by God.

I am so, so sorry for your loss. I will pray for the relief of the pain in your hearts. Remember, you can see Reema anytime you want in your dreams. She will visit you often. My mother has. Her visits have helped ease my heart because I could tell her again , "I love you!"

GOD BLESS YOU!!!

My heartfelt condolences,

Anamarie Planck, 31
Dancer
Friend of Mary Farrah
(I lived in DC 2000-01)

Please treat yourselves if the hurt is unbearable. Extract your sadness with massage, Reiki, or acupuncture. Any will help a lot! I promise.
April 23, 2007
May her memory be eternal.
April 23, 2007
my heart aches for you may god bless you and your family
April 23, 2007
Your sharing of Reema has touched my heart in a way that is indescribable. Just her smile explains who and what she was, she needed nothing more than to just smile. Please know that my prayers and condolences go out to Reema's family and friends and please always remember:

Every butterfly in flight has Reema on it's wings and her smile in it's heart!
April 23, 2007
My prayers are with you; i`m sorry for the loss of her & all of the others. she reminds me of myself;

rest in peace Reema Samaha
April 23, 2007
I cant imagine the grief that your family is feeling right now. Seeing pictures and hearing stories of your daughters love and compassion of life and the one's around her brings endless tears to my eyes. Please stay strong, if nothing else for each other and the memory of Reema. I pray for your family everyday and I ask why this had to happen as I know you have too. Reema's life was cut far too short, however the memories she left in her 18 years im sure were enough to last a lifetime. Stay strong and keep her memory alive.

Loves' Face

Love's face is turned to you;
she brings her blessing
and her peace
to wash you in grace.

Love smiles on you,
bringing her joy
and her wealth
to fill you with abundance.

Love is facing you,
bringing her song
and her fragrance
to know you in eternity.

R.I.P. Reema and God Bless the Samaha Family.
April 23, 2007
It's so terrible that something like this can still happen in the year 2007...
You will forever be in the world their prayers, their thoughts, their heart!
April 23, 2007
Reema,

I don't know how anyone mother can handle losing their daughter. I have one daughter and everyday I pray for her safety. Looking at you reminds me of my own. Like you, she was very fond of dancing. I am sure you were a beautiful dancer. What a gorgeous smile. May you rest in peace. God Bless you and your family.
April 23, 2007
Please accept my prayers for your daughter and your family. Reema was such a beautiful young woman and taken from this life much too soon. Take care of yourself and your family.
April 23, 2007
Now you are an angel and the heaven is your home.
April 23, 2007
We are truly sorry for your loss.
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)
April 23, 2007
Our deepest sympathy. I woke up thinking of your family today. May you find peace in the midst of this tragedy and know that you are in the hearts of many.
April 23, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
April 23, 2007
Joe and family,

God's peace be with you now and the days ahead. You are in my prayers.

Dear Mona, Joe, Omar & Randa;
I am a Lebanese American citizen grew up in Mclean, Virginia. I know most of the Samaha family from The Holy Transfiguration church. I met you Joe & Mona @ a wedding reception In Washington D.C. when you were newly married. What a wonderful couple, you left a good impression. There is no surprise to see you bringing up beautiful children.
Because of knowing you, I feel your pain and tragic loss. What a beautiful angel was Reema!! With her unbearable loss, not only the U.S.A. lost her, the whole Lebanon lost their daughter and her dreams.
My condolences to your family and the entire Samaha family. I hope you keep her light shining through all of you. May God grant you inner peace, and comfort you, Amen. R.I.P. our beautiful Lebanese American friend "Ballerina Reema".

To The Samaha Family:
Our hearts ache for you. Reema was a beautiful dancer and most importantly a beautiful person. We keep you in our prayers.
April 23, 2007
Please accept our deepest sympathies.
April 23, 2007
My thoughts and prayers are with all your family and her friends and all the victims... However, through all the coverage I saw, Reema hit home to me. I never met your daughter/Sister/Friend, however, I feel like I do know her, through all the interviews you so courageously did, you made this tragedy about Reema’s life and nothing more… She is proud of all of you.

She reminds me of a close family friend of mine, Elizabeth.

While Reema had dark hair, Elizabeth’s is blonde. Elizabeth is a dancer as well in college in California. Elizabeth would help anyone in need, just like you have so perfectly shown the world Reema did. Also like Reema, she taught contemporary dance for kids in her church and loves to perform. Her smile is also infectious and she enjoys every aspect of living.

Your Reema and my Elizabeth would have been great friends if they had met. Reema’s spirit lives on in all the lives she touched, and for many young women such as Elizabeth, Reema lives on in them. Elizabeth is here on earth and Reema is in heaven, please know she is dancing for the highest and most prestigious stage there is.

Our Fathers’ stage.

Reema went home to the lord 30 days after my mom died of cancer, and I have yet to grieve, I can’t get past the anger and the why’s, even with a strong faith. Omar seemed to be shocked and angry as he should be, but I identified with it, perhaps that is what first drew me to Reema’s story.

I am only 32 and my mom is gone, but Reema was only 18.

I just wanted to tell you Reema is still helping people, through Reema’s death, your family’s courage, I have begun to see I can’t live everyday angry, not quite there yet but moving towards acceptance. I sincerely thank you for allowing us to see Reema (the daughter, sister, friend and angel) not just a victim and for showing the world the strength you entire family has.

May god bless you and keep you close, the below Poem was anonymously put in my dad’s mailbox, I am passing it along because it is probably how god so her that morning after everything changed.


God looked around his garden,
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you,
And lifted you to rest;
God's garden must be beautiful-He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain;
He knew you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And hills were hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids, and whispered,
"Peace be thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
For a part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

May God bless you and keep you close.
April 23, 2007
I did not know Reema but she seemed like a beautiful, one of a kind, inspirational individual that has left her impression on everyone that has ever known her, even those who didn’t. My deepest condolences go out to her family and I pray for all of you; may she rest in peace. I hope this brings comfort; I was told once people forget what you do, people forget what you say, but they never forget they way you made them feel; and this is how they are remembered always smiling like the angel she is.
April 23, 2007
To the family and friends of Reema:

The world shares in your irreplacable loss as evidenced by the many persons who have signed the guest book. You have the sympathy of my household.
April 23, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sympathy. We send our deepest condolences and will remember you in our prayers.
April 23, 2007
Dear Joe, Mona, Omar and Randa,
We are so touched by what you have done and will continue to do for your precious daughter and sister. We are honored to have been a part of the celebration of such an amazing life. It is hard to believe that we share such heartache and pain. Nicholas and Reema are together in heaven. Our beautiful children.
Our hearts are broken but we will forever remember and cherish such amazing gifts we were both blessed with.
We are here for you, always.
Much love,
Beth, Michael, Pride, Joseph

I was fortunate to meet Reema in 2005. My heart goes out to her dear father and mother as well as her brother and sister. I was so impressed by their grace in talking to the press at this difficult time. I wish it had been different for her. She was a shining star at age 18. Another mom who knew her well told me that now the whole world knows how wonderful Reema was. It's true, but so sad that it happened in this way. May she rest in peace and may her family find comfort. My heart goes out to all the families of those killed and wounded (I knew anther student too who was wounded). My deepest condolences.
April 23, 2007
I pray for the comfort of your family. May God be graceful in this sorrowful time.

May God Bless Reema and her loving family. She is smiling down on all of you from Heaven where she is for all eternity. You will all be with her again...this time for ever.
April 22, 2007
Such a tragic loss for this beautiful dancer. The Samaha family seems like such a wonderful, loving family. It also sounds like Reema was such an inspiration to her family. I am proud of her brother for speaking so eloquently with the media on so many occasions since this horrible tragedy took place. Brother, you would make Reema proud.
I pray that each of you find comfort & peace in this most difficult, shocking time of your life. God called Reema to the heaven's earlier than we thought HE would. But, we will never forget her beautiful smile and happy "spirit". She was an inspiration to many who knew her, and some who didnt, like me. All of America is praying for you ...... never forget that.
God Bless,
April 22, 2007
Although we don't know you we would like to extend our deepest Condolences to everyone in your family. We are so very sorry for your loss. Our heart breaks for you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God give you strength and comfort through this very hard time. God Bless You All!
April 22, 2007
To your Father & Other Family Members Of what you would tell them. From Reema Samaha

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 writting 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 will 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 its time for you to go...
from that body to be free,
remember you're not going...you're coming here to me...

My heart breaks for the family & friends of Reema Samaha! She must have been such a lovely girl & her smile must have lit up every room.

April 22, 2007
To the Samaha Family, I with my own turn also wanted to say how truly sorry I am for your terrible lose but at the same time wanted to congradulate you for raising such a beautiful, talented, caring young woman who had so much to offer this world. I like many other people have never met your beautiful daughter and sister but from the way you spoke about her on your T.V interview I wish I had had the oppotunity to have met her. I can't imagine what your family is going through right now that is why the only thing I can say is that your family should try and stay strong through your faith in god. He will help your family heal from this. Keep her alive through all the good times she gave you and your family in the past 18 years of her life. She is your guardien ANGLE now who will always be by your families side. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU!!!!

Life is so precious and the world is so insecure. My heart goes out to the family of Reema Samaha, a beautiful young woman whose life had barely begun but was so full. I can't even begin to imagine what your family is going through but seeing you speak for your daughter/sister on Larry King truly inspired me to remember the victims of VT and all that they were and not to think of how they became the victims.
To Reema...God Speed.
To the family...God Bless.

Mr Samaha,

After watching your interview with the news media on TV I wanted to reach my hand out to you for comfort. I have two children of my own and could not even imagine what you and your family must be facing. Even though we have never met your daughter, we would like your permission to have her as our ANGEL. From your interview, we could tell how special a young woman she was. May God give you the strength as you face each day ahead of you. God has such a beautiful ANGEL.

God Bless you all

To the family of Reema;
I don't think anything can be said to help you at this moment. I can not even imagine what tragedy this is for you. Reema has affected the whole nation. We live in Florida and have never met her but just by seeing her pictures and her beautiful smile we know that she was a girl a family could be proud of. We weep with you at this time of loss and we pray that time will heal your pain. I would tell you that she is in a better place but I know that knowing that does not make the pain any easier. I'm sure those who knew her were blessed and the rest of us who didn't know her can't seem to get her off our minds. God bless. Reema will be in our thoughts and our prayers along with all the other victims.
April 20, 2007
Our hearts break for the victims and thier families. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. May God Bless you
April 20, 2007
Although this is one of the hardest times of your life, Reema's smile seems to make everything better. She was an angel on earth called upon by God on that horrifying day. She is in good hands now and will be with you all for all the days of your lives. And to Reema's father, you are so strong and your family needs that. When I saw you on the local news, I knew you were in so much pain, but were so well composed. Your family will forever thank you for that. And to Reema's brother, your tears were to be expected, but do not feel guilty for not saying goodbye. There is no need to say goodbye because she is with you each step of the way. God Bless you all!
April 20, 2007
May He give you his comfort, we know He has given her his peace

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.

Words cannot express the sorrow and profound sadness I felt when I met Reema thru the coverage of this tragic event. The pictures and video of her dancing and the interviews with her brother and sister melted my heart and soul. As a mother of a 19yo daughter attending the University of Miami, this really hit home, and I share your grief. Know that the Lord has a special angel in his arms when she was called. I'm sure she touched the lives of all those who knew her personally, as she has touched the lives of all the world thru her pictures and story. My daughter and I pray for your family and friends. May you find peace in this confusing time. God bless you all. To the parents and siblings: You now have a guardian angel looking after you.

Reema stood on the shoulders of her Foremothers.She makes me proud in her intelligence.She delights me in her choice of and actual attending of Virginia Polytechnic Institute.

We who studied in college think Reema's parents did well getting her to that point.Seeing her independent enough,they raised her successfully.Good Job!

Im only 16 but I lost by brother just a year ago from AIDS and I know the times can be a strugle for you but as long as you help each other and lean on God then you can get through. Think about the happy times you spent with Remma and cherish them, there is nothing more important. Remeber your family still with you and know that love is the key ingredient to staying emotionally stable. I hope the best for your family and I will pray for you. God Bless.

GOD'S Lent Child )I'll lend you for little while ,A child of mine'God said,for you to love the while she lives.And mourn for when she;s dead.It may be six or seven years, Or twenty-two or three;But with you 'till I call her back. Take care of her for me?She;ll bring her charms to gladden you And should herstay be brief,You;ll have her lovely memories As a solace for your grief.I cannot promise she will stay.Since all from earth returns.But there are lesson taught below I want thisto learn.I've looked the whold world over In search for teachers that crowd lites land,Ihave chosen you.Now will you give her all your love ,Nor think the labor vain? Nor hate me when I come to take .THIS lent child back again?I fancied that I heard then say; Dear Lord thy will be done.For all joys thy child will bring,The risk of grief we'll run.We'll shelter her with terderness, We'll love her while we mary. And for the happiness we;ve know Forever gratefull stay.But should thy Angel call for her Much sooner then we've planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand. author unknown

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.

I bet she's up in heaven dancing like an angel.
April 18, 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.

Words cannot express the loss of a daughter who was so full of life. It saddens my heart to see the loss of such a young life. What a beautiful young woman inside and out.
Put your trust in the Lord and he will help your pain.
My mom gave me a card after I had an accident 12 years ago that left me paralyzed from the waist down. It read: You can't control the winds, but you can adjust your sails.
I Hope this helps in some small way. God Bless you!

To the Samaha Family:

I was extremely distress to learn of the loss of your daughter Reema.

She looks so beautiful on all the picture shown on Television and I am sure she was a wonderful daughter.

Words can do nothing to ease your loss. I am glad at least that it appears that God gave the strength to Joseph and Omar to appear on television to let the word know what a wonderfull person was Reema.

May God help you in the future.
April 18, 2007
To the family of Reema, I am so sorry for your loss. I am praying for all of you that the Lord may bring you comfort and peace in this very difficult time. She was beautiful.

To all the Samaha Family:

Words can not express the sadness about your daughter's tragedy.

I am a Colombian Lebanese and also have a daughter 18 years old who attends a University in Florida.

I am very proud to see how strong Mr. Joseph Samaha and Omar Samaha were at the Larry Kings show last night.

Reema will always be in my prayers.

With all my heart.

April 18, 2007
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.
April 18, 2007
The sorrow you carry is with us all. God Bless this beautiful and may her memory live on
April 18, 2007
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
April 18, 2007
A lady so full of elegance, grace, happiness, joy, and a heart for others. She was kind, beautiful, and gave her all to everything she did. Even though I may not have known her, I see that description in her eyes and I also heard it on the news from her father, describing his pride in the daughter that has now gone. To the Samaha family, may God continue to bless you and comfort you. Know that Reema is in a much better place than this and that she is now smiling in the presence of God.
April 18, 2007
The loss of someone so close is difficult to bear. We share your grief.
April 18, 2007
We offer our deepest sympathy in the loss of your beautiful daughter. We pray that you will find strength, courage and finally peace in your beautiful child's memory.

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.
