I unfortunately never met Maurita Tam but as a Personal Coach and a Mentor I want to applaud her life. From what I have read about her, she filled her every moment with opportunity and a passion for life itself. Giving joy to others through her music, language and personal outlook on what she could accomplish; she has become a shining example of what others can do with their lives. For many years I have helped young people discover their inner gifts and have encouraged them to share those gifts with the world. It is role models such as Ms. Tam, whose personal efforts and commitment have created a level of excellence all of us can pursue in our own lives. Let her life help fuel the dreams of the many generations to come in her footsteps. Her life's work will help me help other young people by showing them the way she lived her life, curious about the unknown and the determination to learn about it.

To the family of Maurita Tam, know she wasn't just another person in the world, she made a difference. Her positive contributions to society has indeed, made this world a better place to live. I would have been proud and honored to have met her. Robert E. Willis - Motivational Mentor

when you walk through a storm
hold your head up high
and dont be affraid of the dark
at the end of the storm theres a golden sky
and the sweet silver song of a lark
walk on thru the wind , walk on thru the rain
throw your dreams be tossed and blown
walk on , walk on with your hope in your heart

she was a special and gifted person. she spoke Japanese, Korean, French, Cantonese, Mandarin and English. She played piano and clarinet , sang exuberantly in the college choir and painted...she had a yellow belt in tae-kwon-do and was a leader of an Asian student group at Amherst...she was an economics whiz and computer-comfortable enough to be a Webmaster of several sites. Have a look at her site ... last time updated in 08.11.2001...

May God bless you angel ... You will always be in our hearts...
I dont know what else should i to say... i think theres nothing else... Bye Maurita , you sing with the angels in choir now...


If anyone who knew her and can contact me please do at ... thank you..

These are the lyrics of norwegian singer Lene Marlin - "Heaven is a place nearby" ... This goes to the great and wonderful person that was Maurita Tam! So this is for you only Mariuta!

A Place Nearby

I entered the room
Sat by your bed all through the night
I watched your daily fight
I hardly knew

The pain was almost more than I could bear
And still I hear your last words to me

Heaven is a place nearby so I won't be so far away
And if you try and look for me maybe you'll find me someday
Heaven is a place nearby so there's no need to say goodbye
I wanna ask you not to cry I'll always be by your side

You just faded away you spread your wings you had flown
Away to something unknown , wish I could bring you back
You're always on my mind about to tear myself apart
You have your special place in my heart

Heaven is a place nearby so I won't be so far away
And if you try and look for me maybe you'll find me someday
Heaven is a place nearby so there's no need to say goodbye
I wanna ask you not to cry I'll always be by your side

And even when I go to sleep I still can hear your voice
And those words I never will forget...

...and also from Blues Traveler - "Didn't mean to wake up"

I came so close to paradise
The feelings were so true
You cried for me to come home
Now, I was crying too
We said so many things in anger
There seems little left to do
Than put the pen to paper
I can't write good-bye to you

I didn't mean to wake up
From the dream that was my life
I didn't mean to wake up
I can't stop the changes now

When you wake up in the morning
Don't look for me, I'll be gone
There's a letter on the table
With best regards from John

I didn't mean to wake up
From the dream that was my life
I didn't mean to wake up
I can't stop the changes now

I came so close to paradise
The feelings were so true
You cried for me to come home
Now I'm crying too

I didn't mean to wake up
From the dream that was my life
I didn't mean to wake up
I can't stop the changes now...

I did not have the chance to meet Maurita as well as all the other vitims of the 9/11 tragedy. But I often find myself logging onto various WTC memorial sites to match the countless number of faces to names. Names and faces of vibrant people who I will never have the pleasure of working with, or talk on the phone to, hold a door for, even smile and say hello as we pass in the street. My heart and prayers go out to the Tam family as well as all the other familes who had to lose a loved-one on that fateful day.

To: The Tam Family
Hello! My name is Mary. On September 11, 2002 I went to a candle light vigil in Amherst, Massachusetts to commemorate the first anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks. Everyone at the vigil was presented with a candle and at the bottom of the candle was a victims name. The name at the bottom of my candle was Maurita Tam. When I got home that night I went on-line to see if I could find any information on stranger I had prayed for. When I saw Maurita's picture I was stunned! I was stunned by her beauty, her youth, and the way she resembled my sons girlfriend, Wendy Wang. Wendy is Chinese and at the time, was attending The University of Massachusetts. I printed out a picture of Maurita that night and it has been in a little frame on my refrigerator ever since. Maurita has become part of my family. I pray for her everyday, she watches over me as I cook and eat with my family. When someone new comes into my kichen and asks "Who's that?" they are intoduced to Maurita. Last week my daughter, Stephanie, brought home some information she had printed on Maurita. I was so surprised to find out she went to Amherst College!! I live in the town next to Amherst. At a vigil in Amherst, I was randomly given a candle with her name on it. My son's girlfriend, Wendy, attended UMASS, part of the five colleges, which included Amherst College. Wendy, was very active in a Chinese student group at UMASS. I wonder if Wendy and Maurita were ever at the same Asian function. Did I ever pass by Maurita in a restaurant or while shopping in Amherst? I'll never know.
Last night at 9:11PM, I brought Maurita's candle and her picture and put it on a table on my back porch. I lit the candle and prayed. I had my own vigil, but this time, unlike the past two years, I couldn't stop crying! I prayed that Maurita was at peace and prayed for strength for your family. When I came back into the house my two and a half year old grandson, Erik, kissed Maurita's picture.... twice!! My daughter found out she was pregnant with Erik, on September 11, 2001. Later last night, my son, Joe, who is in the Navy and stationed in California called me. He told me how he had to control his emotions at a formal 9/11 rememberance ceremony on base. When he asked me what I did to commemorate the day, I told him "I lit a candle and prayed for Maurita." I just had to say "Maurita". He did not need a last name. Joe knows who she is. I am writing this because I want the Tam family to know that Maurita will never be forgotten and she has touched the lives of people she never met. I also want you to know that she is ALWAYS in our prayers. You must have been so proud of her. What a special gift she was. May God bless your family and may God bless Maurita's beautiful soul. Sincerely, Mary Longtin

Dear Maurita,

Your tragic passing has touched millions of ordinary people all over the world and there have been many painful and broken hearts with tears flowing down like swollen rivers...and yet these people didn't know you but just through this site! Now, can you just imagine what effects you would have had on us if you could travel back in time to meet all of your be in a time machine? You would have totally mesmerized us!!!

Now that you are in Heaven, you must be one of God's most favourite residents for you are so multi-talented! God must be wondering whether he had created just one individual in you or a thousand ones in tiny you. A most wonderful mistake, indeed.

Hey... now that you are up there... is it true you people there don't eat/work/sleep/have any problems/get sick/need any money/don't get older but instead get younger and just walk around, smile and be happy as a lark? Well, can you check for me just when I am scheduled to go there....please...? Can I get to jump queue? I'll give you an exhaustive astrology reading if you can do this one big favour for me. Oh... I don't need it for now you know everything in advance. Care to do an exhaustive reading for me,then ?

Well, please keep in touch with your loved ones by being in their dreams once in a while... for it's a nice feeling to know that you are doing just great over there. It is part of the healing process for your loved ones... It is their Healing Light...

By the way, these wonderful lady, Mdm. Mary Longtin, and her family who have been showering you with so much love that can last you a million lifetimes? I would love to get in touch with them because of their very pure loving hearts. My email address is: and I live in Penang, Malaysia. I am Chinese, an astrologer specializing in problem advice, grief counselling and the healing process.


It has been very nice talking to you.

Your Wounded Healer,

Dear Bereaved Family of Maurita,

Decent, civilized and humane citizens all over the world have nothing but total praise, deep and caring love for Maurita. It is also our loss that such a young, intelligent, lovely, multi-talented and caring human being can leave us so suddenly and tragically.

We, the citizens of the world, sadly did not have the wonderful opportunity to meet and get to know her but we still grieve for her no less.

It has been 3 years now (2004, Nov.) and I hope you are progressing well in your healing process for if not I would like to help you heal.

I am an astrologer specializing in problem advice, grief counselling and the healing process and , as my humble contribution towards all 9-11 victims' grieving families, I would like to help guide them towards their Healing Light. This service is absolutely free and I am doing it in memory of all your loved ones and my late parents, who passed away suddenly within 4 months of each other. It took me 3 years to get over the pain... the anguish ... and so I know how it feels... And now, I am an astrologer.

Please refer to sites of Sara Low, William Wit, Zhe Zack Zeng for my messages to their respective families.

Please heal your pain. May God bless you all.

Your Wounded Healer,

KL Gan ( of Penang, Malaysia - 2004, Nov.12)
