          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。

花一样的女孩,
在百花盛开的季节到来,
在百花盛开的季节离开。
携着含苞欲放的娇美,
回到你天堂的花园。
你的芬芳,待要初现的艳丽,
永远留在爱你人的心里。
人间的花园,
一定和你天上的有相通的情缘。

I'm never going to forget all the amazing memories I made with Sonata. Ever since grade 3 we've had an amazing friendship, we always had a great time together. We went berry-picking, menchies, mink, indigo, starbucks, Richmond, and I'm honestly so honoured that I got to be her friend. She always had a bright smile on her face no matter what she was going through. She's so talented in music, academics, and art. I'm so glad I got to know her and journey through the last few years with her. I'm never going to forget you Sonata, I love you.

Everyday I walk into class from the first day of grade 2 til now, Sonata has always greeted me with a warm smile. Sonata is not only just a great friend to me , she was also my first friend from Canada , she helped me with everything , from homework and to making friends . Sonata is my inspiration , she was not only smart but talented in music , she was intelligent, funny and she was always positive . There's many things I have learned from Sonata. I am very honoured to have been Sonatas friend . I will always miss you and I will never forget sonata .

Always a smile and happy greeting on clinic day. We struggled through an ever worsening condition, but you always warmed everyone's heart and more. Even when I was late to see you, never anything but a smile. I had the honor and privilege to tale care of you after Dr. Bond and there was never a time that you didn't brighten my day. I picture you looking down on us, beside Dr. Bond. You will always be remembered as the sweetest teenage interested in everything....the crane you named Apollo building the new hospital...I hope you and Dr. Bond are catching up on things. We will always miss you.

宋京,师纪卫,叔叔,阿姨,
无法想像你们的痛。以前只是在照片和通话中知道Sonata的点滴,今天在这里才能够更多地认识她。真是天使一样纯洁,可爱,美丽,坚强的女孩。我从这里的每一张照片和每一句话中都能体会到你们对她无比的爱和无尽的思念。可爱的小天使一定在天堂保佑你们在悲痛中坚强,珍惜将来的每一天。保重!

My dear Sonata,

I have such wonderful memories of your time on 3F. You were never without that beautiful smile that would light up the room. Even if I was not your nurse on a particular day, I would always find ways to go visit and spend time in your room. The day you wrote (and performed) the poem dedicated to your hospital bed is a day I will always remember with a smile on my face.

You had a heart of gold. I still remember the day you and your wonderful mother INSISTED on making the nurses try bubble tea for the first time. You carefully selected flavours which you deemed the most delicious, and of course, even took my silly mango allergy into account. You were fun, brilliant, a wonderful story teller, and beautiful person inside and out. We were all so lucky to have gotten to have known you these past couple years.

Sonata,虽然我们只有一面之缘,我相信那是久远以来命中已经定好的。你的微笑那么美好,给我很多鼓励和勇气。死亡不是生命的结束,而是一个新的开始,我为你祈愿,在一个美好的地方,充满爱的人中开始新的旅程。也许,我们有缘还会再聚。

面对如此巨大的悲痛,我不知道应该如何安慰一个父亲。我自己有女儿,我无法想象父母的痛苦。

请节哀,您的家人和朋友,还有CCMI的所有朋友会支持您、陪伴您一起度过。

敬,

我的心在流血,和你一样心痛!

孩子来到这个世界上,和你们共处了一段美好的时光,应感谢小天使带你们的一切美好回忆!

你们,作为父母,已经尽力了,没有什么愧疚和遗憾的,要好好善待自己呀!此生,有些事情是我们自己无法左右的,只要我们做了我们应该做的,内心就会平和许多了。请多多保重,善待自己和亲人,我们活着的人,一定要活得更好,这也许是孩子的最大心愿呢!多保重!/:@)/:@)/:@)

刚刚得知这个令人心碎的消息,感到万分遗憾;因没能参加告别仪式,送可爱的小天使最后一程,而倍感悲伤!我及家人的心,因你的逝去而心痛至极点。为什么这么热爱生命、阳光的小女孩,不能幸福快乐地在爱的呵护下幸福地生活下去呢?病魔,有时人类也无能为力,否则,你还会和我们生活在一起!

你是一个好孩子,聪明伶俐、心灵手巧、心底善良、多才多艺、清纯美丽、永远绽放着笑容和阳光般的神采。你热爱生活,永远用积极的态度对待身边发生的一切,期待未来会更好,你是许许多多你同龄人的学习榜样啊!

无论是你的家人,还是你的朋友,包括我们一家人,都非常非常地喜欢你。只是相见的时间太少又太短,还没有来得及约你几家人一起去郊游,你就永远地远离了我们,让我们无法再牵到你的小手!

你知道吗,我们都很喜欢你,会永远地怀念你,将你记在心底里。

可爱的宝贝,你从此远离疼痛和不安,你会觉得更安逸和更平和的,在那美好的天国里你是当之无愧的美丽善良的小天使,你一定很幸福、很快乐!

永远爱你!

Sonata,

想如常一样叫你的名字。看到你躺在花海中,安静的睡去,阿姨宁愿你能醒来,不属于眼前的这一切。就如Vanna所说:dead flower is for dead people,但不是给你。亲爱的孩子,不要远行,常常回到你爸爸妈妈的梦中,陪伴他们,告诉他们你一切安好,让他们安心!

想再为你做扬州炒饭,卤牛肉还有炒面,只要是你喜欢吃的,阿姨都想做给你吃。

你要好好的,快快乐乐的在天上看顾你的父母和家人,告诉他们要坚强,因为你不曾离开,并将一直守护他们!

想念你的孔蕊阿姨

Lovely Sonata,

I only met you a year ago but I will never forget your beautiful smile and positive attitude, which you maintained even at the most difficult of times. I am so sad for you and your parents that your time together was so short, as you clearly brought so much love and happiness to each other's lives.
Your intelligence, incredible bravery, and kindness will be remembered by everyone who was lucky enough to get to know you. I feel very honoured to have been one of these people.

'A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
and for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
but then it flies again
and though we wish it could have stayed...
we feel lucky to have seen it'

With love and fond memories, Dr Marie xxx

I had only seen you once but I will never forget your beautiful eyes that seems to ask me if I can save your life. I feel so sorry I couldn't do it as a doctor. Now you are away a little Angel. Wish you happiness in the heaven. Always bring your smile to your family and to all of us who love you.
We love you!

Dear Sonata,

直到今天我也无法相信你就这么安静地走了。我们满怀期待暑假回来和你相聚、给你过15岁的生日……这一切都还没有来得及

Sonata,从阿姨第一次见你,就感觉你是那样的与众不同,因为你是天使。你是Sunnie最好的朋友,也是我的好朋友,阿姨为能成为天使的朋友感到特别幸运。天使留给人间的是如此甜美的回忆,你亮晶晶的大眼睛、笑盈盈的脸总是在我的眼前,甜甜的声音总是在我的耳边。回想这几年我和 Sunnie在白石的业余时间几乎都是和你一起度过的,闭上眼睛脑海里出现的一幕幕都是和你在一起的时光,一起看电影、采草莓、摘蓝莓、逛书店、在海边散步、在花园里烧烤、一起喝咖啡、听你开心的笑、给我们讲故事,你和Sunnie一起读书、唱歌、弹琴、玩游戏、骑车、看演唱会的场景历历在目。无论我们去到哪里,车厢里总是充满你的欢声笑语。你给我的语音留言嗲嗲的、淘气的、兴奋的、害羞的,吵闹的、悄悄的......每当我们想你时就播放来听,笑着流泪。虽然你这么多年来一直经受着病痛的折磨,却从未听到过你哭泣、抱怨,我不知道那么瘦弱的身躯容纳着怎样的毅力与坚强。

Sonata,你是天使降临在一个充满爱的温暖大家庭,是如此的幸福!你有那么爱你的妈妈、爸爸、姥姥、姥爷,你曾经是他们的一切,他们最开心、最快乐的日子是你带来的:你在学校是最优秀的学生、在舞台上是最出色的小小钢琴演奏家和甜美歌者、在家里你是那么善解人意是全家人的快乐源泉,他们为你开心、为你骄傲;当病痛向你袭来时,他们始终和你一起面对、一起抗争,为你奔波、为你坚强;14年的花样年华还未来得及绽放便悄然谢幕,他们为无力拉住你的手而悲伤、为你心碎。

Sonata,你去往无忧无虑、无病无痛的天国了,可爱的天使,你一定可以看见你的妈妈、爸爸、姥姥、姥爷和所有爱你的亲人、朋友为你的离去伤心不已,希望你在天国开心快乐,让你的亲人们安心,让他们早日从与你分别的痛苦中走出来,保佑他们健康、平安!

爱你、想你, 康小群阿姨

It was a pleasure to teach Sonata this year. She was always smiling and always had a sparkle in her eye. Her work was always impeccable and she worked hard even when she didn't feel well. Sonata fought the good fight and now she can rest. She impacted so many people. I will be praying for her family.

Sonata was a beautiful, talented and an amazing person. I had the privilege of teaching Sonata in grade four. She was inquisitive , creative and wise beyond her years. Her work was always beautifully done and she inspired others to do their best.
Sonata's smile lit up the room. Even if she wasn't feeling great, that smile was there. I think that she was an inspiration to so many on so many levels. She inspired me to be a better teacher and to go home and practice the piano! I'll always remember the first time she played in a school talent show. I think that we were all pretty amazed. The last time I saw Sonata was last summer(I think) I met her and Mom in the school parking lot. I was so excited to see you both. And as always, there was that enormous smile and contagious laugh. I asked Sonata if I could give her a hug and was so pleased when she said yes. I will cherish that memory forever. Sonata was such an endearing child and I think that everyone who knew her loved her. I will never forget her. I hope that she is resting peacefully , now.
My love to Sonata's parents and grandparents.

Sonata was an exceptional student and an inspiring young lady. She had a rare gift for writing. I looked forward to reading every thing she created for my class. I am honoured to have been her teacher.

Sonata was truly a very special person. She lit up a room with her cheerful, big smile. She was so accomplished and always had plans for her future. She was a gentle spirit who will be missed but never forgotten.

Sonata...
I knew you for only a short time when I taught you grade 7 Science. But in that short time, I recognized the potential and drive you had to take on new challenges and make change. I only wish the future could have seen the differences you would have made. Take care, little Angel. Sleep tight...

Dear Sonata,

It's hard to believe that I won't see your smiling face again.

I will always remember your cheerful smile and your love of music, books and good Chinese food. I'll be thinking of you every time I eat at one of the restaurants that you recommended.

It was always the best part of my day to visit you as your happiness was infectious and you had an unending hope.

I hope your parents and grandparents find some comfort in knowing what a great daughter they raised and how you will be remembered by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting you.

I picture you somewhere breathing easily, drinking bubble tea, reading a book and smiling...
