A smile I will never forget

I met Daniella at Sharei Tefilah about five years ago after I had just moved to Los Angeles. I was so shy and never spoke to anyone when I would go to shul on Shabbos. The first Shabbos I saw Daniella, she came right up to me and introduced herself and invited me to sit with her and her friends. She introduced me to other girls at the shul and even asked what I was doing for lunch. She made me feel so welcomed. As time went on, she always remembered my name and pretty much anything I ever told her about myself. Her smile always made me feel happy and comfortable, like I belonged although I was still new to the community. She was  a very special woman, one of a kind. I will never forget her kindness.
