It's very hard to express our feelings. When a young life leaves there is a special place for the soul up there. May God help the family to cope with the loss. Reading about her, she was a very special person and mom should be proud to raise a daughter like her. Please remember the good times with her, which might help to deal with her loss.

I did not have anyone at Virginia Tech, but I am a mother, daughter, sister and friend so I cannot even begin to fathom the amount of pain these families are feeling. My heart goes out to them and even the family of the shooter. They will live with that pain also of what could have been or what they could have done differently. It is all very sad.

Oh! When will our world will be fit to house all its innocent people. When shall we learn to love each other, not for any material interest, but for the sake of peace and the sheer joy of 'loving' !

minal was loved by all and we,Mistry family struggle to understand why minal dreams were so suddenly halted before it became a realty. we wonder what fate led her to cross the ocean and come from India to follow her dreams here in USA.
Minal touched people's hearts without even trying.
minal with her beautiful innocent smile gained access to my heart and i have known her since i was engaged to her Mama. I like the way she called me MAMI and she approved of my marriage when my husband;her chootu Mama asked her about me.
minal is missed so dearly and she will be in our hearts forever.
May God rest her soul in peace!
