I am sad to hear of Nildas passing. I am so thankful for having known her as an honorable neighbor. When I was a child, she and her family took me to see Disney´s Robin Hood in the theaters and 40 years later I remember that time. i am thankful for that memory I had recently shared with my son, and for so many more.
