    We have expereinced a great lost in this beautiful talent. There must have been a reason for this doomed flight. The Good Lord hears even the faint cry of a raven.

    You know Elizabeth, I don’t know Juliana personally but after reading about her and the testimonials from her friends. I know that she was a wonderful person. The more I read about other passengers on this flight it just seems very sad, the world has lost some great people on board that flight. But the same time regardless of whatever faith you believe in, a plane that is filled with such wonderful people can only be headed to one final destination…… Heaven, May Juliana and all the remaining passengers rest in peace… the Lord holds thee now…….

    Je mi to moc líto. Slzy.. bolest.. utrpení.. Myslíme na vás, i tu, v czech republic. Budou tu všichni chybět! S.

    I didnt know Juliana either, but I read about her and I read about this flight and even today it breaks my heart. It’s such sad sad thing to have happened. I cant stop thinking about the mother of the brazilian Flight Attendant who was visiting Brazil to attend the funeral of his father, how can a woman who just lost her husband, lose her son as well, in such terrible way! Lord have mercy please, have mercy on your children in this world, please send your holy spirit to help ease the pain of those families who lost so much in that flight, so much life gone! Lord have mercy!
