I was blessed to be both Maral and Nadia's 6th grade teacher at St. Madeleine. Maral was a kind-hearted, gentle soul, even at such a young age. Words cannot express how heartbroken I am knowing that Maral has been taken from us so early in her life. My love and prayers go out to her mom and Nadia, as well as the rest of Maral's family. Maral will be deeply missed, but we will be truly blessed to have such a special angel in Heaven watching over us all. I can see her singing and dancing with Mrs. Casey right now!
