Dear Alameddine family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I cant even begin to know how you are feeling at this time. One ting I do know however is how it feels to lose someone you love in death and One of the things that helps me to cope is the thought found in the Bible at john 5:28,29 Where we see that we will be able in the near future to see are loved ones again. May these thoughts bring your family a measure of comfort as they have done for me. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.
June 15, 2007
i am deply sorry over the death of your love one to have a life snatcth from a family so suddenly is horrfic but be assured that the god of peace and comfort is aware of your grief and he will be with your family. he also tells us from the bible that he will rid the earth of wickedness. psalms 37:29

Ross,
I am so sorry that you are not here to live out what would have been a very successful life.I am so sorry your family and friends will not be able to enjoy being with you and watch you grow. I met you last summer when we worked together at Best Buy in Saugus and I was so impressed with your brightness, your sense of humor, your attentiveness to your customers in the Computer area. You have touched many lives - that is so apparent from the outpouring of feeling on these pages. I just wanted you to know that I was happy and privileged to have met you and will think of you often with a smile. God Bless you Ross. There is bright shining star in the sky now named Ross....

Angels Are Spirit- Beings
Created By God To Do This Will . They Are Not Humans Who Have Died
Come Back As Angels
Read Mathew 18:10 How Does Knowing
That Angels In Heaven Watch Over You Make You Feel? Have You Ever Falt And Angel"s Presence In Your Life? Yes It Happens To Me When I Walk It Fill Like Some One Be Hine Me Some Time It Fill Like And Angel Putting Hands On My Sholders
May 08, 2007
May God give your family the peace and comfort that only he can give.
May 07, 2007
Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. This tragedy has touched my heart like no other has. Please find strength in god to help you through this very horrible time.
May 06, 2007
To Ross' 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.
You may gain additional comfort 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."
I share these comforting thoughts with you because they are of great comfort to me having lost my husband on 9/11.
May 05, 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.

We did not know Jarrett, but we are from Giles County. From the way everyone talks, he was the sweetest, kindest person. Just wanted to express our sympathy and say how sorry we are for this awlful tradegy. It is a shame that this kind of stuff can happen so close to home. Again, we are very sorry for your loss!

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.

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 Family and Friends of Ross Alameddine
I will stand in grief with this student's family to honor him. For every fallen student there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book on legacy.com. We lost our son to this war 12/1/05 and so I visit this site every day to sign the guestbooks of soldiers. I cannot believe I am now signing so many books of these students.
I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life.
I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our children. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation, no matter what the cause of it. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This child will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away.
God Bless this student and family andGod Bless legacy.com for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.

To the Almeddine Family: I am a VT Hokie, class of 1983 and live in Medfield, MA now. My sister was class of 1984 and my brother in law was class of 1985 at Virginia Tech. I am so sorry for your loss and have cried many tears for Ross and for all the VT family members who were lost in the tragedy. My sister, brother in law, and I had happy members in Blacksburg during the early and mid 1980's. My sister's dorm was West AJ. I am so sorry that your son was involved in the tragedy. My husband Jim and I hope that he is resting comfortably in God's hands.
April 28, 2007
I am so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

But I believe in Heaven, so that means that you still ARE an amazing person and are making everyone in heaven smile and laugh. My prayers go out to your family and friends in this time of need. Rest in Peace, Ross...
April 28, 2007
I'm so sorry for your lost.
Your family is in my heart.
I didn't meet you but you'll always be in my heart because your life was a big lost, all lifes ara a treasure an anyone can't remove it.

I have the magazine article from "People Magazine" and am able to see a picture of this cute 20 year old looking over his glasses. My heart goes out to his family knowing, of course, that there are no words that could make this any easier. I am a parent though and do at least "understand" what you are going through. King David (of the Bible) wrote about our Creator, Jehovah: "Trust in him at all times, O people. Before him pour out your heart. GOD is a refuge for us". (Psalm 62:8) David always prayed to God for help, and Jehovah always came to his aid. Have the confidence that you can do the same. May your memories with Ross warm your heart in the days ahead. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.
April 27, 2007
My heart goes out to your family.
God promises that one day all those who have died will live again in paradise. (2Peter 3:13) May you draw comfort in knowing that others share your sorrow.
April 27, 2007
Our thoughts are prayers are with your family. We are so deeply sorry for your loss.
April 27, 2007
I am very sorry for your loss. May you find some comfort in knowing that peopole whom you have never met are sending you their warm thoughts and prayers.
April 27, 2007
Father we entrust our brother Ross to your mercy. You loved him greatly in this life: now that he is freed from all its cares, give him happiness and peace forever. Welcome him 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 Ross in the palm of His hand. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My deepest sympathy.
April 27, 2007
I am so sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers are constantly with you.
April 26, 2007
Dear Alameddine Family,

I am so sorry for your loss.
Although we have never met, my family and I did consult your son many times in Best Buy. He was great and extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He will be missed, and although I hardly ever pray...I did say a prayer for your son. I'm sure he is in a better place now.
April 26, 2007
To Lynnette, the beautiful mother of Ross:

We are thinking, crying and praying for you every day. You are a dear friend of ours and we will remember Ross in our music, hearts and prayers. We love you.

Dear Alameddine family,
My heart, prayers and thoughts are with you always. Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences.

Ross,
Rest in peace sweet precious angel.
April 26, 2007
we ares so sorry for the terrible tragedy and we express our deepest sympathy ...
April 26, 2007
Ross Alameddine smiles, brightening his face
He pulls you aside with jerking haste
Laughs at your shock that melts into good cheer
He just wants to reverse that test taking fear
He guides your sight to see a new screen
Something he built – his smile beams
Within those few moments this brainy dude
Put you in a much better mood
As a son and friend all were proud
When Ross was around there was not a single gray cloud
He brought moments of peace
With his quick sense of humor it was a laughing feast
Remember the smile remember the joy
Then you’ll remember Ross the charismatic boy

April 25, 2007
Dear Mother and Family of this beautiful boy,
I have no way to put into words how my heart hurts for you. I look at your son, I see mine. The dark hair, the caring and expressive eyes, the crooked smile... It hits to the core of my soul and I cannot imagine how you must feel the sting of loss.
I wish that I could make it better, take away that terrible day, bring back all those who were cast into Heaven that fate-filled day. I wish I could. Naturally, I can't. No one does, but we all feel that way.
I did not know your sweet son, I did not ever get the chance to look into his eyes or shake his hand. From his story, I know a little of him, I can see the kind of Man he would have grown to be.
A tender man, who was kind and fair. A man who would have been a wonderful husband, a great father. A man who made the world brighter from his humor and intellegence. A man who would have made the world brighter because he was in it.
I cannot express enough my sadness that he was taken so soon. He was simply too good to be here. Angels can't tread these lands long.
I have no doubts he holds your hand, Dear Mother, that he stands with his arms around you as I am sure he did when he was a small child and hugs you close to him. I have little doubt that the hardest part of his departure was knowing he would not see you again. Would not look into your eyes... I also know he would never leave you, he just can't be seen. His soul is tied to your's. His heartbeat, once created by you, is in your own.
I pray for you. I cry with and for you. I hope that there comes a day when you do not hurt as sharply as you do right now, but I know it will never go away, your loss of him. I hope faith wraps itself around you, gives you hope and gives you a way to find peace one day. I hope you only the best of things. I really do.
I wish that I could say more, I wish that I could stop your breaking heart, I wish so many wishes~ I can't list them all. Know your boy is my boy too... Know that you are not alone when you ARE so alone. Miles away, from all over the world people cry for you and your family.
It's the ones left behind that hurt the most. The ones who went, they know no more pain anymore. I think that he is with you now always. Love always remains. Always. It is stronger than death and hate and all that is bad and hurtful. The love you have for your baby and the love he has for you.
I will keep you and your family in my heart. May you find good in the bad, diamonds in your teardrops, and comfort in knowing that he IS still by your side, you just can't see him right now... God bless you.

April 25, 2007
To Ross' Dad and best buddy, Dr. Abdallah Alameddine and family. Please know I am thinking of you and are grieving with you. I have been blessed to know a man who lived life with, through and by his children. I work for, with and around people who fix hearts, but I cannot fix yours. When you are ready, we will embrace your return.
April 25, 2007
I never met Ross and probably never would have known of his existence if it had not been for his tragic and senseless death. But the more I read of him and heard about him the more I wish I had gotten to meet him. I grieve for his loss to his family and friends and for all the people whose lives he will never touch.
April 25, 2007
Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
April 25, 2007

April 25, 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 25, 2007
When we lost our 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 Ross' 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 Ross. 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 Ross will remain forever. I wish you all the best in this difficult journey.
April 24, 2007
May you find comfort in knowing how many people throughout this world are praying for you and your family as you grieve this precious loss. Many of us never knew Ross. We only came to know him through the recent stories we have read on-line but we know what an unique individual he was - a young man with so much to offer - so talented, so driven. Thank you for sharing him with so many.
April 24, 2007
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

I didnt know any of the people that passed, but this whole thing has gotten to me, alot. I am 15 years old and I'm a freshman at Crawford County High School in Roberta, GA. This tragedy has most definatley opened up the eyes of many people, even in other states far from Virginia. Even my school in this little town we know as Roberta are buckling down and making sure that our schools are safer. It has opened up my eyes to all the possiblities at schools, here in Georgia, Virginia, and all over the world also. My condolences go out to all the friends and family of the victims. I can't possibly begin to imagine what they must be going through. Stay strong, VT will pull through!
April 24, 2007
Lynette and Al,
I have been devastated ever since I read the Globe on Tuesday morning. I can't even imagine what you are going through. I just want you to know that Sandy and I are mourning with you and we are here, if and when you need us for anything. We will be in touch with you sometime in the next few weeks.
All our love.
April 24, 2007
I have learned to never underestimate the healing power that we all have. It's always there to be used for the highest.

May you find the comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss.

My thoughts are with you.

To the Family of Ross Aballah Alameddine:

We offer our deepest sympathy. When tragedgy strikes and takes the life of our innocent and defenseless loved ones, many cry out with great sorrow. Your tears are not going unnoticed by the Creator of Life. Never was it His purpose for our human lives to be violently taken away as did Ross'. Although your deep pain will not easily disappear, prayer to God will bring comfort to you as you grieve. The Bible assures us God "is healing the brokenhearted ones, and is binding up their painful spots." (Psalms 147:3)
April 23, 2007
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of this great kid. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you, the McCormack family, Jason,Kaye,and Daniel
April 23, 2007
Ross reminds me of my son, and I've been distraught like so many others after this tragedy. He was an accomplished young man and someone to be proud of.I'm writing a piece of music to honor him and the others in his class and in the school who suffered that day. My heart goes out to his mother, family and friends. Love is til the end of time, he will always live in your hearts until you meet him again. God bless you all.
April 23, 2007
Words can't express the sorrow I've felt at the loss of your loved one. May God's Grace and Mercy give you comfort and peace.
April 23, 2007
I am so sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Deepest sympathies to your unimaginable loss. We in Saugus are here for you and always will be.
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
I never knew Mr. Alameddine, but I just read in the New York Times of his efforts to reach out to the shooter when the two shared a class. He must indeed have been a kind person, and a light to the world. I am so sorry he is gone.
April 23, 2007
It seems so trite to say something like "I'm sorry" at a devastating time like this. As a person directly affected by Sept. 11, I promise that while you will never be the same, you will find some semblance of peace. Give yourself all the time you need for the healing process. It is a process that you will be in the rest of your life but your Higher Power will be by your side.

Peace be the journey.
April 23, 2007
I trust that God be your strength and comforter in your time of sorrow. Be encouraged and be blessed.
April 23, 2007
God bless your family at this time of sorrow.

April 23, 2007
I looked at Ross's MySpace page on 4-16, I guess just wanting to know who were these senselessly lost people. Ross is such an adorable kid and just reading about him made me laugh so I am guessing he had a really good sense of humor. I also downloaded the song he was playing on MySpace and every time I listen to it I remember him, even though I never knew him. I'm so so so sorry to his family and friends. I am so sorry for your hurt.
April 23, 2007
The Laguerre family extends their sincere condolences to the Alameddine family. May GOD continue to heal you and bless you in your time of sorrow.

April 23, 2007
Ross,

This is indeed a true tragedy. I remember having some fun times and cheap laughs with you back at Austin and what a time it was.

You were always a very good person to me Ross, as well as many many others and I'm glad that people will remember you for that.

You were always so bright, so orinigal and so....you. I have never had to say one bad thing about you, and I never will.

Things won't be the same in this world without you in it, that's for sure. Ross, you're an intellegent kid and you could've been whatever you wanted, and I knew that from the day I met you, and I just wish that you could've had that same chance.

My prayers will always be with you and for your family. I know how you always told me about how your family was doing, and although it saddens me to see them in this state, I know that they will be watched over by you and taken good care of.

I only wish I could have spent more time with you Ross, as you are no doubt one of the most unique people I have ever known. Although I sit here at my computer typing this, I say every word of this from my heart, and from my soul.

I will never forget you Ross, never....
April 23, 2007
We are crying with you. Bless you all.
April 22, 2007
The memories of Ross will always live in your hearts. May God give you comfort during these tragic times.

April 22, 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.

God Bless,
April 22, 2007
I do not know what your faith is or is not, but I hope you can find some measure of comfort from some of my favorite words when I am in pain: I will lift mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord who made heaven and earth.

Your loved one completed a great mission on this earth, we will not know all he did, but he must have done it well, and it was time to go home. In his death, it may have been his strongest hour.
Prayers and sympathy, from a staff person at Virginia Tech.

There is a road yet narrow, but great
The road toward life, for those with faith
In he who was sent from up above
Giving the opportunity for salvation
To everyone , the hope of a resurrection
So sleep just a while until that dear day
When he calls to the memorial tombs,
"Get up!" he’ll say.
Then we’ll all be reunited, with our dear loved ones
Read it for yourself chapter 5:28,29 in the Bible Book of John

May the God of Love(Agape) comfort you.

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
I will hold your family in my heart forever.

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.

Lynette and family:
I knew as I heard the name Ross, and Saugus on the news that my worst fear may be true. I cannot begin to comprehend how you feel, only in terms of being a mother, but do share your strong love of your family as I love mine. I remember the evening you took me to your car to show me the portrait that had been finished of Ross and his sister and how very proud you were. I hoped and prayed that this whole ordeal was not true...hoping for a mistake. I feel so terribly sad and hope you know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. The pain must be overwhelming, but I hope in time you will remember and cherish all the wonderful memories and times with Ross, and not let this one horriffic event erase them all. If you need or want anything at all, don't hesitate to call or ask. You are a wonderful, caring and loving mother and friend to all, and it is clear Ross was much like you. He will always be with you in your heart.
Again, our sympathy and prayers, and as a mother, my many tears as well.

Ross sounds like an incredible young man, and, there are no words I can say to ease the pain. I hope you will hold onto the wonderful memories you have of Ross in the coming days, weeks and months and they will help you cope with your loss and give you some comfort.

I can not say and will not say that he is gone He is just away.
With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand, he has gone into God's well known land. And left us dremaing how very fair God's need must be since he lingers there. And you, oh you, still do yearn for his return. Think of him fairing on as dear in the love of God as the love of here.
Think of him still the same I say.
He is not gone, he is just away.

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.

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.

"The Lord's my Shepherd, I shall not want." Psalm 23:1

The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want.
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul He doth restore again;
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
Even for His own Name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill;
For Thou art with me; and Thy rod
And staff my comfort still.

My table Thou hast furnishèd
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me;
And in God’s house forevermore
My dwelling place shall be.

Your son helped people feel better and have a better mood, that is a beautiful gift, all the people who was ever around him was affected for life, my eight year old son died last month in a car accident, his smile and love for everyone also made people feel happier around him, our children will always be with us, you will be able to feel it in a few days. My love go to you and to everyone who shared their life and took care of this nice young man since he was conceived. Just like before he was born and you loved him, although you could not see him, he is the same eternal being, still there with you forever.

Hun,

I will never forgot you. You made my days so much brighter everyday of highschool, especially in the morning with your hugs and at lunch time with your never-failing attempts at making me laugh. I've felt empty ever since Monday, and I don't know if it will ever completely go away..

I can't stop thinking about when we did "The Mousetrap" together. What a play.

You were so talented Ross, and this isn't fair. You were one of the best friends that I had, and you always will be. I love you Rossmo, and I always will.
April 18, 2007
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;

It is times like these that Satan will come in to make you doubt the deity of God. But remember, he (Satan) is the one who comes to steal, kill and detroy. But Jesus comes to bind up the broken hearted and let the captives go free. May the love of God continue to be a shield and a buckler for all of you. God's love is stronger than death...it is eternal. The world is praying for all of you. God loves you and so do we.
April 18, 2007

Take comfort in the fact that you will see your loved one again in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father Jesus Christ. Live each and everyday in memory of your loved one, live the life that was so tragicly taking from them far to early.

Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

April 17, 2007
To the Almeddine family, I have never met you or your son. My heart is broken over your loss. When I learned that one student was from Saugus, the tragedy became so much more real. Please let the knowledge that so many people are sharing in your grief help to lift the burden you are feeling and know that so many people in America are keeping your son's name in our hearts. Perhaps that may offer some comfort to you.
