A young woman full of life and energy, why should you be gone so soon? O death, why at this time of her life? May the good Lord who understands whatever happens, protect and give you a resting place in his bossom till we all meet again.

My most heartfelt condolences to Rachel's family and friends. It is obvious she has had a tremendous and positve impact on all those around here in her short life. She is a beautiful girl. We also have our children in Christian schools and I know that somehow we think and hope that somehow we are immune to this type of senseless loss. This violent act is very difficult to understand. May God bless you and all of the families and friends of all of the victims of this sickening event. The loss of these incredibly bright and hopeful people is felt globally. The world is a better place because Rachel has been here. You are in our prayers.

Dear Hill Family,
I gasped when I read the names of those lost at VT. Our little girl is named Rachel Elizabeth Hill. She is 4 1/2 years old. I know your family will come to my mind and therefore be in my prayers regularly because of this coincidence. I praise God that your Rachael is obviously with the Lord now, as her life reflected her relationship with Him. I pray your church will uphold you and be a strong support to you.
In Christ,
K. Hill

I didn't know her, but at my school we had a VT remeberance thing and they had a list on a screen with all the victims and I saw Elizabeth Hill and I prayed for her. So I hope if her family reads this I want them to know I'm praying for them. God Bless VT!

As the mother of an only child, a daughter, my heart aches for your family. And as a fellow American, of course, I was deeply touched by this tragedy but cannot for a moment imagine what you and the other families must be going through. Please know that people all over this country are truly praying for you and the other people who loved your daughter so much. My sincere wish is that in time your memories will comfort you and that your will feel the presence of God. Words seem so useless at a time like this, but it is all many of us have to offer. I hope they somehow, in some way touch you all.

I'm sorry for what happened at Virginia Tech. I see this as a disgrace to my state in general. I too lost a friend in a shooting. Not in a school shooting but drug related so i know where you guys are coming from. Once again, I'm sorry for what happened and I wish you guys the best. Remember, take it one day at a time. God bless you.
