  1. I am a New Yorker and have been deeply affected by the tragic death of Vanessa Pham. I have designed a tribute which I would like to share with you.

  2. Tribute to Vanessa Pham:
    The earth went into mourning here one sunny summer day
    A precious, lovely, blooming flower was sadly snatched away
    Radiant in beauty, fragrance, sweetness and delight
    To know her was to love her she was precious in our sight
    So talented and beautiful and growing more so every day
    Full of hope and promise- blessing all who came her way
    Her smile, her laughter, her great joy, her passion and her zeal
    Inspired us, delighted us and showed us love is real
    But an evil darkness came one day descending on this place
    And trampled down this precious gift God gave us by His grace
    For 19 years we've reaped the fruit of all her lovely charms
    But now she's back at home with God-safe in His loving arms.
