    I know Batsheva Rochel Leah personally.
    She was a beautiful girl inside and out. She was a gem, a shining star, so happy, so sweet and so sincere.
    She will sorely be missed.
    May we have only good news and no more tragedies.

    I was sad to hear that this beautiful little angel lost her battle in life. I was blessed to have met her and in the short time I spent with her I could only feel her strength and love for life. She was so beautiful my words can never say enough about her. May it bring comfort to her family to know she touched so many lives and will always be in our hearts. I know this little angel will always be close to her family comforting them with her strength, love, & happiness.
