  10. I did not know Amber, but I am currently a student at PhilaU. She was a senior when I was a freshman. Even several years after her graduation it is obvious to me that she touched many lives while she was here! Please know, from a stranger, that it is clear how much she was appreciated and will truly be missed.

  11. Please accept my prayers and thoughts to your family at this time. When my daughter (Lyneah) called me at work, she was heartbroken. She shared many wonderful memories of growing up with Amber at school and daycare/YMCA . May God Bless you and give you strength. Rest in Peace Amber..

  12. I remember seeing Amber often. I never knew her by name until news broke, but by I knew her from seeing her a lot around campus. Everytime I look at her picture my heart aches. She was so sweet, she always smiled at me when we exchanged paths. She must have worked on campus because I remember seeing a lot of her through the years. We where in the same class, same graduating ceremony. She knew my friends. I only wish we would have gotten more chance to interact, she sounds like such a wonderful person. My heart is with all of those who love her, including all of us at Philadelphia University. Amber, you are now among your own, and can now watch over us and guide us towards a meaningful legacy we can carry for you. Down with Violence and Up with Love!!! Evil can never defeat the power of Love.

  21. Dear Stephanie,
    I’m so sorry for the tragic loss of your beloved daughter. My two children live in Philly and I was there that day to see them. We go to Northern Liberty sometimes for brunch. My children love Philly the way you said your daughter did. We weren’t in Northern Liberty that day. We stayed in S. Philly. I pray they find the people responsible for the senseless, cowardly crime they committed. May God give you the strength and courage to get through this. May Amber rest in peace and fly among the angels.

  22. My deepest sympathy goes out to the Long family in these dark hours. May you be given the strength and fortitude to press on and take comfort in the love and prayers that surrounds you during your grief. It is my fervent hope that those responsible for this needless violence be brought to swift and certain justice. Tempus fugit – memento mori.

  23. In time may you find peace. I pray that they arrest,prosecute, and make these people think about what a beautiful person they took from this world. Breaks my heart that this violence over material item could cost so much sorry again for your loss..jason.
