People continued to flock to Virginia Tech's Drill Field today to write messages on makeshift memorials -- large boards set up on either side of 32 stones, one for each victim -- arranged in a semi-circle.
Students and visitors walked slowly along the boards, many of them crying as they read the messages.
Some of the messages:
-- "Reema - this is so hard to take in. You choreographed part of our last bellydance. I'm so glad I hugged you at our last practice ....
-- "Dr. Loganathan- I regret not telling you that you were the best teacher I have ever had. You were an inspiration. Your student, Shannon"
-- "Always remember the 4/16 32. -Billy"
-- "Concord University sents (sic) its blessings and prayers to all"
-- "We weren't friends but we were family. I didn't know you but we are family. We love you all because we are a family. We are Virginia Tech. We are family."
-- "Proud to have called you a friend, Stack. Love always, WAJ"
