A good one passes on

Deputy Commander Ahuva Tomer, the chief of police in Haifa, Israel (and the first woman named to such a senior law-enforcement position in that country), has died of burns received while personally attempting to rescue people caught in a negligently-set forest fire that also caused the deaths of 42 police cadets who were trying to evacuate a local jail. 

Ms. Tomer was by all accounts that we've seen a dedicated professional who devoted her life to police work.  Our respect and sympathies go out to her family, friends and coworkers.

RIP, and condolences to her family and friends. Virtuous people should be remembered. I'll now go out and spill libation for her. My eyes seem to be un-usually well-lubricated at the moment.
