Not sure what to say?

I offer my sincere condolences to Hong's family. She always had a smile on her face and a cheerful disposition. It was always a pleasure to speak with her. May your memories of beautiful times bring you peace.

To family and friends of Hong Zhang. May your hearts be comforted by God's everlasting love. 2Thess 2:17.
Sorry for your loss.

It is heartbreaking news. Hong is such a sweet lady. I remember when we first met and her first sentence to me; I remember we sharing the same room at Pittcon and all the fun talking; I remember she telling me presentation skills; I remember her comfort and suggestion on taking care of a newborn baby. She made the world a better place, not only for me. It is hard to accept the fact that she is gone and I can't imagine how much harder it is for her family. Her warm smile will always be...

My deepest sympathies Yijun Huang. I just heard... I wish I had an opportunity to have met Hong Zhang. Her work will continue and make a difference with the help of all she knew and worked with. Continued prayers to you and Andrew. God has you wrapped in his arms. Sincerely, Renee Reynolds-Lawson

It was my privilege to work with Hong on a number of projects. She not only brought a level of competence to her work, but also human kindness and compassion that reached from her coworkers to the patients whose lives she impacted through her work. I feel honored to have been able to work with her and to also call her my friend. She will be greatly missed.

Sorry for this sad news! May she peaceful with God. And the survivors are able to be strong and calm.

Very sad to hear the news. I have known Hong since Nanjing University and worked with her in Dr. Weber's group at Pitt. She was a talented scientist and a great person with a warm heart. She was such a optimistic person with sunny smiles all the time. I cannot believe that we are losing a great friend and cannot imagine the pain she and her family went through. Rest in peace.

Very sad news. The family loses a good wife and loving mom, and we lose a great friend. Hong, we will always miss you...RIP
