Rakhaelâ??s light shined so bright, it will never go out. She examplified everything that is good in this world. Iâ??ve admired her since we met in 1975, and will always hold her in my heart and memory as a blessing. I will think of her every time I vote. My deepest condolences to the Ross and Weinstein families for this loss. Love, Elle

I have only known Rakhael for the last five years or so, but learned to love her spirit and persona. A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul has left the earth. I will miss her intensely.

â??The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. They seemed, in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace . . . Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed, because God tried them and found them worthy of himselfâ? Wisdom, 3:1-6.
How fortunate we were to have known Rakhael even for just a few months and how blessed to have had the chance to talk to her one last time a few weeks ago. We had hoped to get to know her so much better, but we are grateful for the memories we have. Micah, Gil, Chelsea, and Jordan, we are so sorry for your loss and keep you all close in our hearts.
