Some Notes  from Cantor Lois

Ode to Olga Menczer
 
For those of you who know this soul, our brightly shining star,
You may be focused on her challenging past, from which she's come so far.
 
Our teacher, our mentor, our confidante, our Queen Bee of the hive,
She teaches by example, how to love and how to thrive.
