An article here about him...
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/us-n...berment-murder"I just want people to know that he was a nice guy," Matty said. "He was very nice, very kind to his friends. He was a good student … His life wasn't easy. He had to make money for himself. He had to support himself … He had to work in the daytime, study in the evening. He has homework, he has examinations, his life was pretty hard. He had to be all by himself."
RIP Jun Lin
I didn't know you personally but the words from your family is all I needed to hear. You are missed on earth and my hope is that you will get justice and that your soul can finally be at peace. You didn't deserve to die. You should have been enjoying all the beauty this country has to offer. I'm so sorry.
Rest In Peace, Jun Lin.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. Justice will be done.

Beware of Grindr, boys!
Jun Lin will be remembered by me for his beautiful,genuine smile
I wanted to say something here.. but my words seem meaningless and when I type them out; they don't represent how deeply upset and distraught I am at your murder.
My heart aches for you and your family. I close my eyes at night and see your face. I wish that things could have been different. Your smile will remain with me for the rest of my life.
Rest in peace. I pray for your family and friends.
There is Good Grief. Just ask Charlie Brown.
Rest In Peace Lin Jun

'Our hearts are broken and bleeding. Every day we live like walking dead without a soul."
"The last 30 days have been the most difficult time in our life," Lin's mother said in a eulogy. "We lived in the agony of grief of losing a loved one and missing him desperately every day."
She described her son as a kind, disciplined, sincere, open minded and mild-tempered.From the CBC: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montre...concordia.html"We wept and wept until our tears were exhausted, our voices were choked and we could not get a word out. Our lovely son, poor child, where are you now? Where are you? Your mom and dad miss you. We miss you very much, so much."
It's taken me like 10 minutes to make it through the first paragraph of that article. Heartbreaking, I can't take it.
you know yesterday I saw a young Chinese man Jun Lin's age in San Francisco with his 2 year old child,and it really made me think sadly that besides the loss of Jun Lins life,we have also lost someone who would have been a great father to a future child
remembering that you were a good man Jun Lin
I hope your family finds strength
Rest in Peace Lin Jun
Rest, dear boy. Justice will come.
Text of the eulogy delivered by Lin's mother
Our beloved son Jun Lin has left us for one whole month. The last thirty days have been the most difficult time in our life. We lived in the agony of grief of losing a loved one and missing him desperately every day.
Jun was a very kind person and filial son. He was well disciplined, sincere, open-minded, and mild-tempered. He enjoyed helping others. I remember when he was a child, once I took him to the grocery market. He saw an old man kneeling down on the street, begging with a broken bowl. He asked me for one dollar and gave it to that man to buy food. Another time he was waiting for the bus at a bus stop. A woman holding a baby in one arm and a piece of luggage in another tried to get onto a bus. Jun didn’t hesitate to help her to carry the luggage onto the bus. He did a lot of good deeds.
To us Jun was also a loving and considerate son. Every time when it was windy or rainy, he would call me, “Mom, it has started raining. Don’t go out.” Even after he came to Canada he still kept calling back home frequently, reminding me to be careful about my health. He sent me a lot of nutritional supplements from Canada. In August of last year I had fractured my hand. He was so concerned that he called his sister over and over again, telling her to take good care of me. He was such a nice and caring person. However, his life was ended unexpectedly by a monster. How can we accept that cruel fact? How can we face the days going forward without our beloved son?
Our family used to gather together during the spring festival every year. During this short period of a dozen days we were accompanied by our children and enjoyed the happiness of family love. We love and are loved by our children. And we lived a happy and satisfied life. All of a sudden, everything ended on that day, May 25. We lost our son forever. He is now in another world beyond our reach. During the month after Jun’s death we have been living in deep sorrow every day. You can’t imagine how sad we are! Our hearts are broken and bleeding. Every day we live like walking dead without a soul.
We hope to bring the monster who murdered our son to justice and we hope he will get the punishment he deserves. We dare not imagine how much suffering Jun underwent, how much horror he felt on the day he was murdered one month ago. He was such a kind and caring person. Anytime we saw his photos tears sprouted from our eyes. We wept and wept until our tears were exhausted, our voices were choked and we could not get a word out. Our lovely son, poor child, where are you now? Where are you? Your mom and dad miss you. We miss you very much, so much…
It has been one month since you left this world. Today your friends, classmates, people from the city of Montreal, Concordia University, the Chinese Consulate, the Chinese Students Association and Chinese communities as well as many other kind people have come here to hold a memorial service for you, mourning your tragic death, showing their sympathy for your misfortune and condemning the criminal. We believe our son can see what happens here. He can feel your kindness and love. With your love and attention he will feel happy in heaven.
Thank you all.
Thinking of you and your family this morning. I'm hoping you get closure soon.
There is Good Grief. Just ask Charlie Brown.
