Marc, Gwen and family: I tried to call, but could not get through. There are no words I can say about the family losing Reva. It's difficult losing such a close member of the family. I wish I could be there with you all to help. I know she will be in your hearts forever.

Reva was such a huge part of my life from the time we first taught together at Sudbrook through the years at Arbutus . She was not only my co- worker, she was family . Reva held my heart and my hand through so many ups and downs in my life through the years we were friends , always there with her gentle wisdom and inevitably something to make me smile . Like someone else so perfectly shared ... with Reva you not only felt listened to completely , you felt seen . What a gift that was. Her deep love of family defined her, and she positively beamed when talking about her nieces and nephews . I will always remember Reva’s quick wit , her beautiful smile , her compassion, and the sparkle in her eyes . Please know how sorry I am for your family’s loss .

So sorry to hear about the passing of my friend Reva. She was a special colleague who made everyday special for the students she taught. I could always count on Reva to be a voice of reason and someone who always searched for avenues to build positive relationships. It was truly an honor to know and work with such a fine lady. My deepest condolences to Reva’s family.

Dave an I were sorry to hear of Reva's passing. She had a good sense of humor and a good listening ear. We will miss her. We celebrate her life and find it appropriate that she left during Pesach. Tanta would probably want to see that all who knew and loved her, "smile" in her memory. We are smiling! May Tanta rest in peace.

It was anyone’s honor to be in Reva’s orbit! She always had so much to offer on so many topics. She was always appreciative of her wonderful family & neighbors & I loved hearing stories & memories of everyone. She always asked about others & whoever was with her felt her focus. Her clever humor & strength of attitude were inspirational.
She will be missed by so many. My deepest condolences to the entire beautiful family!

As BCPS colleagues I knew Reva as a gifted educator who was always willing to go the extra mile to help students and enhance programs. As Team Leader her skill, dry wit and willingness to work “outside the box” effected positive change and growth for our students. She will be missed.
