Dear Betsy and family,

I was shocked and heartbroken to hear the news. Although I haven't met Aurora, I can remember clearly the stories you shared with me of your daughters. My prayers and thoughts are with you as you walk through troubled water but find strengths and peace in our Heavenly Father.

Aurora was a good friend of our daughter Michelle, and although we didn't know her personally, Michelle always spoke of her fondly. They went to Boston Anime together a few years back. We are so sorry for your loss and pray for the eternal repose of her soul. We especially pray for you and your family as you deal with such a tragic loss. Sam & Saralyn Chen
