    I loved spending time with Lien and will miss her greatly! She was so warm and made those around her feel so special and loved. Her smile was so welcoming. I loved coming over for Pho and sharing that with her and Phuong and also my kids (jonah would always have 2 bowls)! It was so clear how much she cared for those around her especially her kids. The love was palpable. Her love for travel was inspiring and the last time we were together we talked about her swim lessons and her desire to visit south africa. How brave to start swim lessons at 66!. We will all miss her. Love to Michele, Phuong and Daniel.

    The entire 1971-1977 Medical Class of the University of Saigon is deeply saddened by the loss of Dr.Trang Bach Liên. Dr. Bach Liên was a great student, an excellent friend and colleague, a wonderful wife and loving mother. We all miss her smile, her love, and her compassion.
    We would like to send our deepest condolences to her husband, Ph??ng and her children, Michelle and Daniel.

    Dear Dr Trang B?ch Liên’s loving family members,

    They will always be remembered as an especially giving person of nice character.

    Since that hurried last day of the tumbling April 1975, I have never met Liên, my classmate, again.
    Now that she has passed away, I wish to say a condolence to her family and friends and also my short good-bye poem to her:

    When the loved ones gather around her tomb,
    In silent tears
    And faltering steps
    Or even under a bright blue cloudless summer sky,
    To lay B?ch Liên down to the pulling but embracing earth,
    We wish to grasp her hands, for the last time
    And reach her face, in grief and sorrow,
    Then we know, like we always knew,
    Without knowing,
    we had found her in our hearts.

    We are deeply saddened to hear that “Sister” Lien is no longer with us. We really regret that we have not had the chance to visit her and the family. She was the most compassionate and loving lady we have ever known. May her spirits be with God. God Bless you all.

    The depart of Bach Lien is a huge loss to us all.
    We always remember Bach Lien from her Saigon University days when we were at the Faculty of Medicine, with her forever soft voice and gentle smile. Our most recent memory of her was during our class reunion in Jun-July 2017. With other friends, she took good care of Thanh Luong who almost fainted coming up Bryce Canyon. Even in that situation Bach Lien maintained her comforting warmth, soft voice and smiling expression. That memory will stay forever in our heart.
    We send our warmest condolences to anh Phuong and all members of the family.
    We remember Bach Lien and all her family in our daily prayers to God, Our Father
