At the end of my message I wrote in Hebrew – Yehi zichra baruch – May her memory be blessed.
I am sorry it came out as question marks.

Dear Yaron, Dafne, Dana, and Maya,
My deepest condolences on the passing of Liora. Words become mute in the presence of your loss and pain, but I hope they can reach across and give some consolation.
Liora always greeted me with a smile and genuine interest. In all our brief conversations she made me feel welcome. Maybe that is why, without planning I asked her in a chance meeting two years ago, if she will be willing to tell a children story at the Israelis In CT Hebrew Book Festival. To my surprise she said yes on the spot and added she will be happy to do it. It was a great success and both children and adults enjoyed her storytelling. Liora also donated a lot of books – a testimony to her love of reading. So abruptly, the story of her life was cut short… how unfair and sad.
May your memories and love support you at this difficult time and help you celebrate her life.

Dear Yaron. Maya, Dayna, And Daphne,
I came into work today at YNHH and was so saddened to hear about the passing of Liora. I worked and shared an office with her at YNHH for over 1 year. We had many good laughs. I could see immediately when I first met her what a loving and kind person she was- a great social worker also that really cared about her patients. . She always talked about all of you and how proud she was. I will forever remember her kind words and beautiful smile. My deepest sympathy to all of you in this difficult time.

Dear Yaron,Maya, Dayna and Daphne,
I worked with Liora at the SBHC for many years. Over that time she became a great friend. She did amazing work with the students who were going through difficult times in their lives, always advocating for them.She also was there to lend an ear to any of us staff members.
I was fortunate to stay in touch with her after she left the SBHC, meeting for dinner a few times a year with the rest of the SBHC staff. It was always fun hearing about how her beautiful girls were doing and what wonderful things she was doing up at Yale New Haven. Always selfless. She will be missed so much by so may.She was a true gift to this earth.We will all keep her alive in the wonderful memories we have.My thoughts and prayers will be forever with you.

Dear Yaron, Maya, Dayna and Daphne,
It breaks my heart to have to express my condolences at the passing of such a vibrant and kind mother, wife, friend, professional. I’d run into Liora from time to time (at Stop and Shop of course) and we’d stand in the aisle – catching up as she told me about her girls. She was so proud of all of you! My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Sending hugs,
Bonnie Pachesa

I was so sorry to see notice of Liora’s passing. I worked with her in the school based health center in Stratford. She was truly a force, incredibly strong and vibrant. How heartbreaking to lose her. My deepest sympathy to her family, who she treasured, and all the friends, coworkers and patients she readily lifted up with great devotion.

Dearest Yaron, Maya, Dana and Daphne,
My boys and I were so saddened to hear of Leora’s passing. I thought immediately of a chance meeting we had at the karate studio when Dana was learning the Arts and I was picking up Laura’s son Quinn. We ran into each other, infant carriers in our hands, holding Maya and Matteo who were born just a few weeks apart. It had been likely 3 years since we’d been at Abiyoyo together, but Leora made it feel as no time had passed. Always so kind and so direct. I am grateful to have known her a bit and grateful too for Rabbi Tilton’s words. My family sends our our heartfelt sympathy and prayers for comfort to you.
Much love, Suzanne, Dylan and Matteo

Laura Pirie

Dear Yaron, Daphne, Dana and Maya,
My family and I are so very, very sorry for your loss. Our families go back to our years at Abiyoyo when the children were small and lots of life lay ahead of us. Liora was warm and thoughtful – always kind, always generous, always understanding. Her eyes sparkled with deep wisdom – and what seemed a sense of unwavering purpose. Reading her beautiful eulogy, I now understand her spirit even more.
With all of our love and support to you through this difficult time,
Laura Pirie and children, Quinn, Aiden, and Kira Turlington.

Yaron and family, I was was deeply saddened to hear of Liora’s death. Although I did not know her well, we were colleagues and our paths crossed a few times over the years I have lived and practiced social work in CT. She was my kind of social worker: grounded, direct, practical and all about real life as it is lived by real people. She supervised one of my current staff when she was an intern, and made a tremendous impression, inspiring my staff person in so many ways. I regret not having had the opportunity to know Liora better, but through the rabbi’s eulogy and the many loving comments and memories shared below I am sure my sense of the person she was is accurate. May her memory bless and comfort you always.

Yaron, Daphne, Dana, and Maya,
We are heartbroken. Liora was a wonderful, loving person who I’ll think of often and miss always. She was a great friend to my mother and like an aunt to me. During the past day my mind has wandered through many sweet memories of Liora. Always kind, empathetic, and caring. She was never without humor.

The beautiful words people have written here are a testament to the fact that she left a strong positive effect on those around her, as an deliberate part of her like’s work, but also unintentionally, by simply being herself.

Thank you for being a part of our lives Liora. Thank you for many tiny moments of attention, patience, kindness, and love. I miss you.

I am deeply sorry for your loss. Liora was a vibrant, incredibly kind, thoughtful, fun-loving and warm mother, wife, aunt, friend and human. She was also a mentor to so many, a listening ear, a fabulous shopper, a deep-belly laugher, a friendly smile and so many more wonderful attributes were hers. Best of all was her ability to gather her loved ones around her with empathy and openess.
We are all heartbroken by the news, and wish we could do anything to offer even the smallest bit of comfort during this time. I wish this was a year where we could hug you and let you know we are there for you, should you need us.
