Looking forward to the time when "No resident will say I am sick" (Isaiah 33,24, 25:8) Until that time I pray the family will find comfort in the promises our God has made, and hope.
My thoughts are with you. What a talented and wonderful lady.

"I just discovered that Ronit passed away recently when I was doing a search on her. Such a loss to cinema and life in general. She was full of depth and humanity in her acting, and beautiful to behold on the screen. I first saw her in "The Band's Visit" I believe, where her silences and her gaze spoke volumes, along with her laconic sense of humor. I also saw her in "Or", "Jaffa", "Gett", and a few other films that were all astounding because of...

My name is Nikki Wells and I live in Texas. I discovered Ronit when I rented the French film, Girl on a Train. I immediately fell in love with her regal quality and her elegant performance. I again fell in love with her in Gett. That performance was beyond description. Her talent was God given; no amount of acting classes could garner that level of perfection. I'm always looking on the internet to find out news about a possible upcoming movie with Ronit. My heart broke when I read about her...

I send my condolences. May God give you peace as you cope with your loss.

Please accept my condolences on the passing of your loved one. May GOD embrace you in comfort during this difficult time.

Rip you our home with our god and our lord and savior the lord jesus Christ and the holy ghost amen amen amen.

Admired her wisdom in her last statement, the world would be a better place. May th ed family find comfort in her accomplishes in the film industry. God bless.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
