    Default Leila

    I was deeply saddened to hear this evening that Leila Abu-Saba has
    died after a long battle with cancer. Leila contributed a great deal
    to this newsgroup and numerous other communities to which she
    belonged. I for one will miss her.

    Oh, no. I have wondered how she was doing but was afraid to ask,
    hoping she was better.

    Thanks for posting the news. Very sad.

    Oh no!! I thought she was doing better? At least from the blog posts
    of hers that I read, she seemed to be doing better. However, I must
    admit I haven't read them in a month or so.
    Things must have gotten worse, pretty fast...

    Very sad news. I am not the most prolific poster, but I have been
    reading long enough to know this is very very sad news.

    Condolences to her family.

    She was such a good presence here. Smart, passionate, and a wonderful
    resource on the foods of her heritage.

    I wish peace and comfort to her family.

    NO! As soon as I saw this header, I feared, but didn't believe,
    it was this type of announcement. How sad!

    Indeed. She was a very bright, talented woman with young
    children. My sympathy to her husband and sons.

    Thank you for posting this, Barry. This is, indeed, very sad news for all
    who knew Leila. Her wit, grace, and talent were greatly appreciated here on
    rfc, and will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences to her family.

    Thank you for letting us know. She will be sorely missed. I'll be
    making tabouli in her memory this week.

    Oh, me, too! She was so articulate and helpful and generous! And I will
    never eat tabouli without thinking of her. I love her tabouli recipe.

    Oh no. This is very sad, I always have admired thoughtfulness
    and knowledge here and on other groups. My most recent memory is
    of her discussing molukhia.

    I will, too. I somehow thought she was beating the cancer. This is
    so sad.

    She was a sweetheart and a class act. A much-needed presence here in
    rfc, and the world in general. My heart goes out to her loved ones.

    She will certainly be missed. I remember when she was posting fairly
    regularly here. Her posts were always an interesting read.
