Prayers to her an her family through this time of rememberance. I know this may hurt but just know that she’s at peace an she will be truly missed !

  15. Miriam Liu,
    September of 2016 we became sisters. Through the struggles of boot camp and mct, you always had a light. You found a way to put a smile on the platoon’s faces. Your voice soothed us. You made it feel like home. All it took was 10 minutes to have an impact on somebody’s life. Everybody is honored to have you bless them with your presence. I look at things differently now. Whenever I see sunflowers or dandelions playing in the air, I feel you with me. You are in a peaceful place now. You are dancing with the stars and singing a beautiful song that is carried through the wind. We love you and miss you Liu – my fam bam.
    My love and prayers are with your family.

  16. Miriam was a kind classmate. We weren’t too close in high school, but every time we saw each other, Miriam was always friendly and it was just an enjoyable conversation. I send my condolences to her family.

  17. She was a delight to know in school and a good friend to have. May God rest her soul. I’ll be praying for her family. I hope they find peace in knowing how much she was loved by everyone she met.

  18. 这是个一脸灿烂阳光漂亮的女孩,我们是看着你长大的,你那可爱的笑脸深深的印在我们的脑海里。
    孩子,一路走好!

  19. Miriam helped me since day one. She was one of my very first friends and an amazing neighbor. Thank you for making bus rides fun and for being there for me whenever I needed you. You were such a sweet girl with an amazing soul. God will be taking care of you sweet angel. I send my condolences to her family.

  20. She attended the same church as I did, but I never knew her. I missed her as I was coming home from recruit training, she was just starting. I heard good things about her and I wish I could’ve met her. This is truly unfortunate. Semper Fi devil dog, you’ve earned your rest.

    Family of this dear child, I pray that you all will find comfort in the Lord in the troubling time. I cannot even fathom the sorrow that you all are going through. I am truly sorry for your loss.

  21. 好孩子願你在天堂安息。
    求神保守你的家人。

    語言难以形容心中的不捨與難過,
    求神保守。

    The cross is not great than his grace
    求神保守。

  22. 我曾经是2010年上海北京寻根夏令营的带队老师,当年刘美芸还是一个稚气可爱乖巧善良的女孩,在我《相约上海的故事》一文里,我记录下这样一段话:“刘美芸是个刚满12岁的小姑娘,长得清秀可爱,因为长得白白净净,被称为是“白雪公主”。她年纪最小,但很独立,我在上海与她住在一个房间,她每天都按时睡觉,按时起床,还自己清洗自己的营服。在上海和北京,我们必须穿营服,每天回去,就要用手洗衣服。”不论是在上海世博会,还是在北京的故宫和长城,她的吃苦耐劳,给我留下了深刻的印象,从不抱怨,总是笑眯眯地在队伍中,从来不掉队,她的善良和爱心,勇敢和坚强,给我留下了深刻的印象。
    美芸的飘然离去,让我们每个人都心痛,也许,美芸是人间的天使,来去如风,上帝将这朵美丽的白云,带到了人间,又带回了天国。让这份悼念,延伸我们的思念,美芸,安息吧!她在天国里会看到,父母和哥哥都在挂念她,亚城及世界各地的人们都会永远记住她。

  23. Such a beautiful and full of life young lady in my memory. My condolences to her family. 父母和哥哥节哀保重!

  26. 志强:
    惊悉你女儿不幸去世,我无法用语言来表达这种痛苦,世间没有比失去自己亲爱的女儿更痛苦的了。望你和家人节哀,多多保重!

  27. 好孩子, 海军陆战队是你想去的吗?在那里究竟发生了什么?一个可爱小女孩多可惜呀。

  31. 志强,
    96, 97 年我们在南理工一起查经, 过团契生活, 后来搬家, 生活忙忙落落, 没有联系。惊悉噩耗,很是震惊和心痛 。愿上帝亲自安慰你们悲伤的心, 愿美芸在天堂安息!

  32. Sooo sad about the loss of such a beautiful young life full of promises! My deepest sympathy to ZhiQiang and family. May God be with Miriam.

  33. I didn’t have the fortune of knowing you in life, but I know you must be a hero reading about all the things you’ve achieved and all the people you’ve helped. Rest in paradise💙

  34. 虽然未曾相识,但听闻噩耗仍然震惊,伤感年轻鲜活的生命就此逝去。希望你去的地方充满阳光和爱。

  35. 圆月挂碧空,应是家人团圆时;天不逐人愿,教亲人阴阳二隔。痛惜痛惜!志强兄,作为和您同样为华文教育做过义工的同道,感受您和家人的痛楚,非言语可表。望美芸一路走好,忘家人节哀保重!

  36. 可爱的孩子在父神怀中得享永生 。也必与你们在将来相見!主是安慰,山寨,避难所,是我们随时的帮助。

  37. I don’t know Miriam personally. I was reading her story from the media and I am sad to learn that she passed away at such a young age. I am so sorry for your loss of such a beautiful, brave and intelligent daughter. May she rest in peace.

  38. 挽歌为米利暗而起

    当夜幕垂落,将白昼的光全然遮盖
    当人们聚集,洒泪叹息相互搀扶
    当警车开道,灵车缓缓驶进长廊

    米利暗,妈妈的宝贝啊
    哥哥的宠爱,爸爸的爱女
    我们的小天使,昔日社区的骄傲

    米利暗,你回家了
    无声无息,静静躺卧

    怎么啦怎么啦?人们惊诧哀伤
    怎么啦怎么啦?生命为何如此脆弱

    米利暗,米利暗
    你曾如敏捷的麋鹿,自由奔跑

    米利暗,米利暗
    你曾如轻盈的云雀,凌空飞越

    无声无息,米利暗
    也许你累了,稚嫩的心灵不堪负荷

    哦,我们无法阻挡死神的猝然攻击
    此时,允许我们聚集,为你哀伤
    允许我们为你守灵,为你的灵魂祈祷

    哦,米利暗,我们的小天使啊
    愿更大的能力,愿更高的神
    此时,Have you in the Heaven
    Have you in His Arm

    再没有任何世上的忧烦可以侵扰你
    再没有任何的邪恶可以伤害你

    Miriam, Oh Little Miriam
    Rest in Peace
    Rest in His Arm of the Lord You Trust Forever

  39. We don’t know Miriam or her family. But we are deeply saddened about the loss of such a beautiful young life. Our thoughts and prayers are with her entire family. May the beautiful memories of Miriam sustain and bring comfort to everyone during this difficult time.

  40. “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted” please know friends, families and complete strangers are praying for you and your family in this time of your deepest sorrow.

  41. 美芸,

    我们以前不认识你,现在才知道你,你是一个多么可爱有理想的孩子。我们有一个与你同龄的女儿,我们深切体会到你的父母失去你的悲伤,我们知道没有语言能够安慰失去心爱女儿的父母,但我们要对你的父母说:我们华人为你短暂的生命痛惜,但为你美丽的生命赞美,为你投笔从绒为国服务的精神骄傲。孩子,带着你美丽的笑容尽享主怀,在天堂为你的父母和哥哥祈祷!

  42. 美芸,

    你是一个多么勇敢的女孩!我钦佩你的人品,你的勇气。我们为你骄傲!这个国家应该记住你,你的奉献精神!
    心痛你的失去,希望你在天堂安息!你将给人们带来深远的影响!

  43. From another Parents of another US Marines, my son served the Marine between 2002-2010 made one tour to Iraq in 2005.

    It is extremely hard for any parents especially loving parents of another Marine.

    My son wrote this to commemorate his fading Marine buddies:

    Don’t Fear Death, Fear the Unlived Life.

    Mariam centainly had no fear.

    一位陸戰隊員的父親看到這消息也是無比的沉重,我兒子2002-2010也加入了陸戰隊,2005派去伊拉克八個月,這是他紀念他逝去的戰友:

    不怕死亡,怕的是一生虛度。

    Mariam 沒有虛度她的人生。

  44. THANK YOU for your service to our Country, Mariam Elizabeth Liu!

    Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
    for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these. – Matthew 19:14

    Dear Lord, I PRAY for the Liu’s who have lost their beautiful daughter, Miriam. I ask that you would fill them with a deep sense of your Peace and Grace while surrounding them with your LOVE and hope. Give them the strength to carry on and to know that they still have a purpose on this earth.

    Lord, on the Liu’s darkest days be their light.
    On their loneliest days, be their friend.
    On their saddest days be their joy and grant them the strength to continue on.
    BLESS them to be firmly established in the knowledge of you and may they comprehend the breadth,
    width, height and depth of your LOVE for them.

    Lord, I PRAY that the Liu’s would be filled with pleasant and joyful memories of Miriam. May each day bring illuminate hope for their future. May they grow closer to you through this experience and let not their hearts turn bitter, angry or disillusioned. May they once again begin to Trust you and embrace the divine comfort and assurance that can only come through your LOVE.

    In Jesus name we Pray – Amen!

    Love,
    A Northview High School Family Member

    —-我并不熟悉的你

    姜 月

    犹如一场狂风刮过,
    犹如一阵巨浪卷起,
    霎时,父母的心
    碎裂在
    你猝然而逝的讯息里。

    悲恸,敲击着亲人的心,
    又何尝不笼罩着我们这一群,
    爸爸妈妈的朋友,
    认识你,可又并不完全熟悉你的
    叔叔、阿姨。

    我,努力地回想你的模样,
    那时的你,
    还是个小姑娘,
    总是露出害羞的微笑,
    每个星期六,来中文学校学习。

    什么时候,你出落成了一枝
    铿锵玫瑰,
    勇敢而又坚定地
    加入到了
    海军陆战队的阵容里。

    披上戎装,随时准备开赴战场,
    那,是一种怎样的决心?
    那,是一种怎样的坚毅?
    那,是一种怎样的憧憬?
    那,是一种怎样的希冀?

    你,从来没有迟疑过,
    纵然每天挥汗如雨;
    你,从来没有后悔过,
    纵然偶尔
    眼角也会闪过泪滴。

    因为,你在
    追逐梦想的跑道上,
    那一端有绚丽的彩虹,
    更有,光荣与鲜血凝成的
    骄傲和荣誉。

    我,仰望着星空,
    想找到天真烂漫、眨着眼睛的你,
    我,浏览着沙滩上美丽的贝壳,
    想要分辨出,那个十九岁的
    娇小玲珑、清新秀丽的你… …

    明年春天,
    这里的杜鹃花会绽放,
    生机勃勃,娇艳欲滴,
    门前那朵粉红的
    一定是你… …

    夏日的海滨,耀眼的阳光下,
    碧波荡漾,一望无际,
    那一朵跳跃着、翻腾着
    染着蓝色的、欢快的浪花
    一定是你… …

    色彩斑斓的秋季,
    湛蓝的天空,映衬着
    让人心醉的山林,
    那一片飘落到湖面上的、火红的枫叶
    一定是你… …

    圣诞节到了,伴着圣诞的歌声
    天空飘起了雪花,
    那一朵飘落到圣诞爷爷胡子上的
    晶莹剔透、洁白无瑕的
    一定是你… …

    虽然,我并不熟悉你,
    可是我知道
    你,从来不会走远,
    因为这里
    有生你、养你的土地。

    虽然,我并不熟悉你,
    可是我知道
    你,从来舍不得离去,
    因为这里有儿时的玩伴,
    更有亲爱的爸爸、妈妈和手足兄弟。

    我知道,你会一直默默地
    望着你爱的家人,时刻陪伴着他们的
    一呼、一吸;
    我知道,你会一直静静地守在这里,
    伴随着四季的变换,伴随着斗转、星移。

  49. 美芸 你才19岁啊,这么早离开人世,你的爸爸妈妈把你交给了国家,可是它没有守住你啊,为什么?为什么?好多人都在问,我悲伤,生命太脆弱。
    虽然我不认识你,甚至没有见过你,但我也有儿女,我知道你是爸爸妈妈的心肝宝贝,你走了,好好睡吧,我们会照顾好你父母和哥哥,你是华人的骄傲:国家的英雄,我和女儿儿子敬佩你!

  50. 因为自己的儿子也在军中,深知这样的生活,非一般人可以胜任的。能选择这样的人生是非凡的。你就是我们所有军爸军妈的女儿。痛惜你的早早离去,望刘爸,妈节哀顺便。

  51. Miriam, May you rest peacefully in god’s arms. The courage and love you demonstrated in your life, even short, will be inspiring many, old and young, for long to fight for the good of family and society. You will be greatly missed!

  52. 挽惜,痛心,虽然素不相识;与众不同的生命,愿天国里永远有你灿烂的笑脸和年轻的美丽!

  53. Miriam, 美丽,勇敢,坚强,无比优秀的孩子,你是上天派到人间的天使,愿你在天堂一切安好!你的生命,就像是一道璀璨夺目的流星,猝然陨落,让千千万万认识和不认识你的人们都悲痛异常。愿父母节哀保重,你们至善至美的天使永远活在你们心中,活在亲友心中,也永远活在我们大家心中!

  54. 無緣與妳相識,却為妳流淚,為妳傷痛!素昧生平的小姑娘,何以我竟是在段段悼文中熟悉妳纖巧的靈魂,及強大的精神。
    那直觸心底的愛與痛是同一刻銘在心間。在這不眠夜,我在祈求:願妳,妳的家人,及所有愛妳的人,能在日月交替間,漸漸放下,讓這片美麗的雲彩能自在而去. 美芸一路好走!爸爸,媽媽,哥哥請為美芸的息懷來保重自己!

  55. I am so sorry for your loss. You have my deepest sympathy. Miriam was a genuine and kind young lady. She will be missed.

  56. Hi Niece, the entire family is going to miss your big personality and your wonderful smile. Thank you for the short 19 years that we had with us. We love you and will miss you always……

  57. Dear Miriam,

    I’ll forever remember your vibrant smile and energy. It has been years since we had last seen each other but your optimism has transcended any form of time. You were always resilient regardless of the circumstances and stood for what you believed in – traits I continue to admire and remember you for. I’m saddened that your time with us was cut short and that we did not get the chance to see other again. I know you’re at God’s side now and blessing us from above. I hope you’re at peace. Thank you for all the laughs and smiles you’ve given to each of us that had the luck to call you a friend. Your bravery continues to inspire and move us, you prove to be a beautiful soul that has left a bright impression in our hearts that will never fade. May your passions continue to burn in all of us left here. I hope I can live in a way that honors all you have taught me – you have faced any adversary with a smile. You are missed.

  58. Sincere condolences from the members of the Women Marines Association. “If the Army and the Navy ever looked on Heaven’s Scenes, they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines.” (3rd stanza of the Marines Hymn). Take comfort in knowing your beloved Marine has left this life to take up her rightful place in Heaven’s detachment.

  59. It’s always hard when losing a loved one but John 5:25 assures us that there is hope for the dead so soon you will be able to see them again so that brings us comfort knowing you have that hope your family is in my thoughts and prayers

  60. Thank you for being my friend, Miriam. I’m very sorry this happened. I’ll remember you, always. Bless to you and your family.
