  9. Sweet friend, It seems like just yesterday we were meeting eachother for the first time with “Garden” Amy as our connection. She called me her “Georgia Tikvah” and there really isnt a better compliment Ive ever received. When we met, we all went for Thai food, Amy, Van, you, and me…and then went to shake our tail feathers at the Freebird in Jacksonville to see Donna the Buffalo (woot woot!). I was immediately in love with you, your sweet smile, your caring heart, your interest in my world, in the whole world, your simple TRUTH of what life is really all about…love, friends, family, time together. After that wonderful meeting (and spending the whole day at my house with Amy and my lil ones while President Obama was sworn in for the first time, watching history together) I have been blessed to share other very sacred moments with you. Seeing you, Tikvah, on the boat to Amy and Patrick’s wedding on St Catherine, seeing your beautiful sassy short hair-do, your adorable colorful dress and rocking body, your peace, your happiness, and your WONDER at all the miracles around you…what a gift. It was like you were drinking in all the magic around, magic that most people just walk right by, but you were in “awe” of the love, of the salty air, of the dolphins, of the love love love of Amy and Patrick, and then the sun went down, and we were all sweaty and dancing and eating amazing food. Tikvah, you have INSPIRED me, you have inspired me, you have inspired me. Thank you for being you, being in Amy’s life, being my friend. Blessing to your family. Prayers for peace to you sweet sistah. Shalom my dear. You will be missed. Love, Jennifer Waters

  10. You are such a special person. I will keep praying for your family. I know in my heart god has his hands on you and your family. Thank you for being my friend.

  11. Hi Tikvah –

    Hugs. Hugs. Hugs… I am thinking about you and praying for you right now. I know you are surrounded in the light and love of your family. I will always be grateful for the chance to have known you and by your case team mate at Wharton. You certainly helped all of us “keep things real” :) Be at peace, my friend. we love you!

  12. Tikvah,
    Thinking of you and sending you a giant virtual hug. I was so happy to hear a garden will be created in your honor, I hope to visit it one day soon and think of your amazing spirit. I did not know you well, but could see the light others speak of, even in our short time together. I’m sure it is a comfort to hear of all the love and gratitude you have inspired in those who knew you, a gift many don’t receive until it is too late. May this bring you peace and assurance of a life well lived. Blessings to you!

  13. We are saddened greatly by this news. Tikvah has been a sparkling young woman and a generous and loving friend to my daughter Pam. Wish we could wrap our arms around you all and give you strength. Sending our love and sharing sweet memories. There are so few words to comfort you. Much love always

  14. Mama T,

    I am blessed to have known you–such an amazingly sweet and gentle spirit. Your smile, kindness, and generosity will not be forgotten; it will forever live in my heart.


  15. Tikvah,
    I will always remember your joyful spirit and your kindness. And lots of wonderful soup in Philly. Wishing you and your family peace.


  16. Tikvah,

    Your smile and sparkling personality brightened the world around you. I grew up always looking up to you – and continue to do so to this day.
    Much love to your whole family. You are all always in my heart.


  17. There are no words to console—-such a painful loss of a beloved daughter, sister, partner, friend, colleague….Our hearts are broken.

    And yet we are humbled and ever so grateful because we have been touched by you, Tikvah—this extraordinary, beautiful, generous, brave, and radiant soul—the brightest star! And we are immeasurably changed forever and ever.

    I am changed…

    Thank you sweet Tikvah. Thank you, thank you for the gift you have given me in your friendship.

    Love and blessings to you, and to your loved ones in their time of great sorrow.

  18. Tikvah,

    I only spent a few days with you, but they were so memorable. I remember sitting at Monty’s in Madison with your sisters and I think all we did was laugh for two hours straight! You will be missed more than you know. You are loved by so many and I know we all are better for knowing you… Sending much love and hugs to you and your wonderful family.


  19. I never met Tikvah at Wharton and just learnt about her over the last few days through Facebook etc. I am immeasurably saddened, and wish I had met her at Wharton, if only once. There is nothing I can think of saying – maybe the deepest feelings in life are meant to be left unsaid.
