I was very saddened to hear of Leah's death. The news brought back so many memories of when we were best friends and students together in Herzliah High School and then at McGill. She was lovely - bright, gentle, and a loyal friend. Unfortunately, she became ill at a young age and had a sad and difficult life which she bore with great courage. May her memory be a blessing.
