          With the greatest sadness and broken hearts we have to tell you that our wonderful and lovely Sonata became an angel on Sunday, June 14, 2015. She had been bravely fighting for her life for more than 6 years. She loved everyone around her – her friends, her teachers, her doctors, her nurses. She enjoyed her life and always had a hope in life. As her mom and dad, her grandma and grandpa, we are proud of her! We are filled with the feelings that she is always near. We will keep all the happiness she gave us forever.

        我们怀着沉痛的心情向大家宣布我们的最爱 Sonata 在2015年6月14日离开了我们。在病痛折磨她的6年多里,她很勇敢地接受了一次又一次的治疗,忍受了常人难以忍受的痛苦,可她从来都没有哭喊过一次。她永远是把她最美的一面展现给大家。她喜欢我们这个家,喜欢她身边所有的人,包括她的亲戚、她的朋友、她的老师、她的医生和她的护士。她热爱每一天,对生活充满美好的梦想。即便在她病重的时候,她还是保持乐观,坚信将来一定会好起来。作为她的家人,我们为她骄傲。她走了,留给了我们永远的痛和无尽的想念。我们觉得她还一直在我们的身边。

我是昨天才得知妹妹的事情。
当时我在Safeway买菜,手中的番茄差点掉了一地。方佛昨天才是我们第一次见面。
当时我觉得,这个女孩好美啊。
万万没有想到她已然病魔缠身那么多年。
那之后,我每次看到她都为她的坚强所折服。
明明是那么难吃的药,她却坚持每日服用。
明明疼痛无比的疗程,她却咬牙撑过。
啊,多么勇敢美丽的女孩啊。
我,没有听过她哭一次。
很多次,我觉得上天不公。为什么要对这样温柔,善良,勇敢的女孩子那么的残忍。
我看到她越来越廋,直到我们不再见面。
去年暑假,我们刚好在漫展碰到。
我很开心,能看到故人。
我和她开心的合影。
我以为她已经有所好转。
真的真的很开心。
可是昨天,妈妈的一通电话,打破了这个梦境。
我并不能说我们很近,是最好的朋友。
不过我真的很喜欢Sonata。
逗她玩,她一笑,我就觉得很开心。
Dear Sonata,
May the clouds dance in your path,
The stars protect your spirit,
And the light lead you on your journey.
I hope that you are now in a better world,
without pain,
without death,
without darkness,
without sadness.
I hope that there you may finally have time to dream,
to eat,
to sleep,
and to fly,
to your heart's content.
愿你的灵魂安息。

亲爱的Sonata,昨天是你的十五岁生日,阿姨的心非常非常的痛,一整天都在想是不是该给你妈妈打个电话,可最终却没有打出,因为实在不知说什么能减轻她的痛楚,好像一切的安慰在这时候都显得那么苍白无力,想来想去只好把心中的痛和对你的怀念放在这里寄托了。
感觉不久前还在你家的后院看着美丽聪颖的你像一只快乐的小鸟,叽叽喳喳的和朋友们庆祝着生日,那欢声笑语仿佛都还在昨日;却又猛然间意识到你已离开我们,去了另一个遥远的世界。一直都以为你是因为一次重感冒后抵抗力变弱才离开了学校在家上学,从没想到如花似玉的你会得那么重的病,而且坚强地与病魔奋战了六年。就在上个月放假的前几天,Chelsea和Darleen还在谈起你,说你小学时游泳特别棒,她们学五六级时,你就已经游到九级了;她们甚至还计划放假后去叫你一起游泳锻炼,好让你能早日康复回到学校上课。没想到几天后突然收到你妈妈的短信,竟然是如此让人心碎的噩耗。
二十多天了,阿姨一直不能也不愿接受这个事实,说好去看你妈妈,也一拖再拖,甚至有意回避上这个网页,因为实在无法承受那种揪心的痛。前几天在你家门口看到你姥爷开门,恍惚间还能在他身后看到你灿烂的笑脸;去Bellingham购物,也觉得还会和你全家惊喜的相遇;你清澈的眼神和甜美的声音总是不经意间就进到我的脑海,让阿姨心痛不已,深深的后悔这几年没有多去关心你,鼓励你与病魔作战。作为 Chelsea 的妈妈,曾看着你和她一块玩耍,一起长大,我能深切的体会到你妈妈失去挚爱的痛楚,但却不知如何才能帮到她,甚至没有勇气给她打电话,只能用一颗同样的母亲心陪着她一起痛。
亲爱的孩子,阿姨知道你一直就非常懂事又乐观向上,相信你的在天之灵一定会安慰你的爸爸妈妈和姥姥姥爷,让他们能坚强地从痛楚中走出,为你健康的活着。
祝你生日快乐,永远活在美丽的花样年华!
爱你的Linda阿姨

孩子,今天你过生日了。
从未曾一起庆祝过你的生日,也从未曾忘记过这一天!
祝你生日快乐!

亲爱的Sonata:虽然你在世的时候阿姨并不认识你,但阿姨就住你家附近,不知道你有没有注意过,经常有一只萌萌的金毛从你家门前经过拐进你家后院旁边的公园。我的孩子也都从H.T毕业,进到Semi,昨天还在星巴克门口碰到了给你寄语的ortamen老师,她也是我儿子女儿的老师;你的朋友们描述的你们一起逛街去书店喝咖啡等等的场景也是我女儿和她的朋友们活动的场景,今天阿姨虽然第一次走进你的家,但又仿佛是那么熟悉,你的亲朋好友老师医生护士对你的寄语让我看到的是这么一个活泼美丽聪明勤奋善良勇敢坚强的女孩,你是妈妈的骄傲,你在世虽然短暂,却是那么精彩。明天是你的生日,阿姨祝你在天国欢喜快乐!那是我们永远的家,那儿没有病痛没有伤心。阿姨也愿你的爸爸妈妈姥姥姥爷早日从悲痛中出来,保重身体,也像你一样坚强勇敢精彩的生活, 这也一定是你的愿望。

该怎么说呢,如果让我把和你的记忆通通倒出来,我首先想到的是当年在小学,我们一堆人围着那个巨大的盒子傻不拉叽的跑的场景。有时候跑腻了或者人不够,我们就和lisa或jessie她们一起玩游戏,也是很幼稚的那种。只要游戏里一提起你的名字,我们第一个反应就是:一头猪!奇怪了,当时没有手机,没有电玩,光是抓人这种游戏就会让我们乐在其中。多么怀念那时候的时光,有你,有朋友,有玩不完的游戏,有似乎永远停不下来的笑声。当然,我们也吵过架。在小学把你做的t-shirt给毁了对不起了,之前有一次无缘无故对你发脾气对不起了,为什么当时就没给你道歉呢?对不起了。。。。。。。。。。我刚来那段时间你给我的帮助很大,大恩不言谢,我会永远记住我有过你这么一个像猪一样可爱聪明且乐观爱笑的朋友。
也请叔叔阿姨姥姥姥爷们提她乐观的笑下去。

I had the pleasure of knowing Sonata when I was the Principal of H.T. Thrift Elementary School, where Sonata attended. She was a beautiful, bright, talented, kind, and caring girl who always thought of others before herself. She made many valuable contributions to our school community and was an outstanding student leader. Sonata was a beautiful person both inside and out with her twinkling eyes and lovely smile. People were drawn to her as she set such an amazing example of kindness, compassion, and courage to those around her. I have known many students over the years and Sonata shines through as one I will always remember for her gentle spirit. The world is a better place because of Sonata and you will never be forgotten.

My heartfelt condolences go out to Sonata’s parents, grandparents, family and friends. May your cherished memories of your wonderful girl help you through this most difficult time.

est friends anybody could ever ask for. She was always so caring and trustworthy. She was always positive and was so brave through everything. I'll always remember our 5th grade election when our "Flight Party" won. I'll remember our many lunch times practising for the Talent Shows, and what an absolutely amazing pianist you were. Sonata, you were always there for me, and I thank you so much for that. You will be greatly missed❤

作为一个父亲,这是我几乎不敢面对的话题。Steven:未来的日子里,你的女儿希望能多看到你们的微笑。为了女儿,坚强起来。

Please accept my condolences. I had the privilege of knowing and teaching Sonata. She was such a lovely, kind, intelligent, gentle, talented and beautiful young lady. She was truly an angel on earth. I remember her performance in plays, her musical talent and her interaction in class that showed such wisdom beyond her years. God bless this family in this very difficult time and give them strength. My heart and prayers go out to you and I feel very blessed to have known your precious daughter.

Sonata has been one of my closest friends since grade 1. She's always been positive and has a smile on her face. I've always looked up to her skills in music, art, and her amazing intelligence. I have learned so many things from Sonata and our adventures together will never be forgotten. She is a such a strong, brave girl. I will miss Sonata so much.

Was so sorry to hear about Sonata! She was always a ray of sunshine in my day. She always had a positive attitude no matter how sick she was. Will miss her cheery, quirky self!

花一样的小姑娘,
带着所有的爱和祝福,
住进了天上花的王国,
永远地护佑着地上的护花使者。

Sonata was one of the most selfless people I have ever met. She could always light up a room with her smile. I remember helping with the ice cream sales she organized. She kept calm when everything was hectic. She will be dearly missed.

宋京:你好!
 这次在青岛时听到了Sonata不幸的消息,感到非常悲痛!这么可爱的女孩子,花朵一样的年纪,美丽又有才华,却匆匆离开了这个世界!上帝真的是太不公平了!记得2000年夏天我去温哥华的时候,Sonata正好在医院顺利出生。我和SN一起去医院看望你们,襁褓中的孩子好可爱啊。那段日子你们是多么幸福啊!
很佩服你和家人的坚强,为Sonata治病花了整整6年的心血和无私的付出!你是一个好母亲!你先生和父母也都尽了全力,不再有遗憾!Sonata在天堂里也不会再有痛苦。请让时间治愈你们的悲恸。可爱的Sonata仍然会是你们未来最美好的回忆。今后有机会,希望我们能一起多聊聊大学毕业后各自海角天涯的生活,聊聊你辛勤抚育Sonata点点滴滴的故事!她15年美丽的成长足迹,足够让人们记住她,赞美她,为你们全家带来长久的慰籍!愿Sonata在天堂中快乐幸福!Auntie Xue 敬挽 2015-6-30

在北京和温哥华都见过这位可爱的小姑娘,令人难以忘怀。
豆豆,小师,亦平老大姐,老宋请节哀,保重身体。

亲爱的sonata 宝贝,
难道这是真的?
你真的离开我们,
离开这个世界了!
我不敢相信,不能相信,不愿相信啊!

sonata,多么美好的名字,
多么美好的小姑娘!
为什么上帝招唤你回去?
我知道只有一个原因,
大家都喜欢你,连神明也愿意你和他们在一起!

有近十年我们都没见过面了,
看照片才知你已经是婷婷玉立的美少女。
你明亮清澈的眼睛,姣好的脸庞仍是那样单纯美好,
对世界,对生活充满着憧憬。
你可能不记得你到过我们办公室,
但办公室的叔叔阿姨却都记得你这个可爱的小姑娘!

你也是幸福的,
在你短暂的生命里,
得到了多少真切的爱!
你有世界上最好的爸爸妈妈,
你有世界上最好的外公外婆,
很多爱你的人为你祈祷,
祝福你走完人生铺满鲜花的路。

在万里之外
我们祝愿你,可爱的小精灵,
安息吧!
愿鲜花永远陪伴着你,
愿所有的祝福永远陪伴着你!

Dear Sonata,

I didn't know you for long, but I can proudly say that even knowing you for a few years as a kid you changed my thoughts. You were always so happy and positive. I'm sorry that you were struggling for that long but know you're in a happy place where you no longer need to feel pain.

Thank you for being my friend, making me laugh and loving everyone you knew.
Thank you Sonata, I will never forget you.

Lovely Sonata was in my grade six class a few years back. She and her wonderful friends were a group I will never forget. Sonata just seemed to have it all- she was smart, funny, talented in so many ways, hard-working, kind, helpful and caring. She made teaching such a joy because she was so genuinely fond of learning.
I remember her mom speaking to me once a little about Sonata's illness. Her mom was understandably very worried but told me Sonata did not want others to know or be worried about her. Such a brave young girl.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Sonata's family and friends. She will be forever remembered.

Sonata, 前几个星期,还说要邀请你来我们家party, 可你却又生病了,我一直跟你爸爸说等你稍好些要到你家看看你,可是等了一周又一周,却等到这样一个无常的结局!
从你的照片和诗歌以及你爸爸的描述中,我能感受你那天使般的美丽,战士般的坚强和秋天般的成熟,你的离去,让人间少了一份的欢笑和快乐,多了父母,亲人和朋友对你的痛惜和思念,而天堂也因为你变的亲切和永恒!
