I am very saddened to here of Nira's passing. She was my boss at AJL for many years and one of the kindest ladies I have ever had the pleasure to have known. I have such nice memories working with her. She loved her students. She always brought me apples back from the farmers market that is something I thought of that makes me smile she had a kind heart.
