A 2006 honors graduate of Barnard College, Rennebohm was enrolled full-time in the Lynch School's counseling psychology program. Prior to attending BC, she had worked for two years as a teacher in New York City.

BC said funeral arrangements were not yet available. Among her survivors is her father, Max, a United Church of Christ minister in Seattle.

    Kelsey's picture

    Look at that picture.

    Contemplate that, in a split second of bad luck, or somebody's inattention, failure-to-look, or slip-of-the-hand, whatever it turns out to have been, the spirit that animated that smile is now gone forever.

    Look again.

    And recognize that what we've got is as fragile as it is precious. Carry it carefully.
