In Memory Of a classmate

Bnos Bais Yaacov is the school where Nechama Liba attended. She passed away before the school opened its new building, but the Simcha hall is named after Nechama Liba. Ateres Nechama Liba is a befitting memorial for Nechama who was so full of life and happiness. A beautiful plaque is being prepared that will situated on the wall right outside the Simcha Hall. The plaque will contain 2 poems written about Nechama. One is written in Hebrew and one is written in English. In addition, a leather bound book was presented to us that contains letters and poems written about Nechama by her peers and teachers. I will present them on this blog. Here is just one of the entries in the book written by a classmate:

Nechama Liba A”H, was my classmate.  She was a very special girl.  Everyone enjoyed having her as a friend.  Whenever anyone was upset or having a hard time, she would always make them happy with her big smile. Nechama Liba A”H, learnt and taught us a big lesson - she taught us to smile. Even now when we have a hard day, we should remember her smile and try to be like her.
