    This is the third such accident this summer involving girls. Their was another one, I think in the same area, and my daughter was in a relatively minor one in the Northeast. All with girl counselors in camp…

    My heart goes out to the family and refual shleima to injured girl.

    Adding to “A counselor-s mother wrote”, my partner and I were also in an accident this year while on Merkos Shlichus-BH no one was hurt, and that’s because we were wearing seat belts. Without those, there would have been a big article on this website, with similar comments.

    Toby was a radiant human being. Talented in everything. Beautiful outside, but more beautiful inside. Full of love. Open-hearted and generous. A shining star.

    She taught my daughter to drive, to paddle a canoe, to learn Tanya. In school she used to practice her violin in the closet. She was good at everything, physical and spiritual – but without gaivah – loved life, loved people, wanted to give all the time. Lichtig in every way. What a loss. Too many losses. It’s time to end it. It may be that the golus gives Hashem some kind of pleasure – but enough is way more than enough. If there’s something we have to do to get out of this darkness, may we see it and do it – now.

    Today, my friend said “good heavens!” and I know why she said that, because Toby is there. If Toby wasn’t there, she would have said “sad heavens”. Please Toby, daven for us down here and watch over us! We need the revalation of moshiach more then anything now. Please take out time to say tehillim for Meital, and somebody should probably post when it won’t be needed any more, which should be really soon.

You were like a shining star that burned so brightly it radiated all that came in contact. Your sweet, loving ways, your intelligence, your gift with the violin, your desire to do medical research, your goodness as a daughter, sister, grandaughter, niece, cousin, will be missed in ways that words cannot express.

    This letter is filled with tears. There was a young boy with a genetic disies, who lost all 3 of his siblings due to the illness and had no father in the picture. When he was asked how he went on in life, he always said, “we must remember to play after the storm.” Right before his own death in 2004, he told his mother to remember to play after the storm- to take something on to remember him, and continue on in life with lessons from the storm. We should all take something on for Toby, and learn from her. Toby, we know you are still with us, we feel you, please, daven for us, daven for klal yisroel!
    Please do not forget to say tehillim for Meital. We all feel for you

    Dear Toby,

    I know you are smiling, because you always smile.

    I know you are happy, because you
    are always full of joy.

    We will always mourn the loss of such a beautiful, intelligent, and kind young woman; you were bound to find the cure to cancer.

    By everyone who knew you, you will be sorely missed. We will always carry a part of you in our hearts, every time we do something kind or smile.

    Usually, people who do not know the people effected would just read these comments with minimal feeling, if any. Please if you don’t know Toby or Meital personally, just know that they are amazing people. Toby IS a wonderful “doer”, somebody who puts everything they got into what she does. She adds light and simcha into the world in every action that she does. Meital, although i do not know her personally, sounds to be an amazing young girl who loves life. Please feel for these people and their families. Cry for them. Do something. Make it impact your life, and change it for the better. Please don’t just read these comments with no heart. Remember- you were also young once. You have loved ones. And just imagine…

    you were too young to be taken away from this world that you loved so much.

    and the living should take to heart… please, don’t ever drive unless everyone in the car is seatbelted in. and just as importantly, don’t drive if you’re tired – it’s such a dangerous risk that’s simply not worth it…

    at least toby is at peace now… and we, left here on this earth with jobs yet unfulfilled, should take it to heart…

    This is a tragic, tragic story.

    But we need to make something clear: IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH SEATBELTS.

    Hashem wanted to take Toby A“H away from us. We do not understand why.

    We all jump on ”she wasn’t wearing a seatbelt“ because we are afraid of something like this R”L happening to us. So we think that wearing seatbelts will protect us.

    IT’S NOT TRUE. If Hashem wants to take someone back to Shomayim, He will do so. If He wants it to be through a tragedy, it will happen through a tragic event. Seatbelt or no seatbelt.

    Yes, we need to buckle up. “Venishmartem me’od.” But it’s not a guarantee that nothing will happen! Hashem is in charge.

    Bitachon, davening, mitzvos, and Ahavas Yisroel are the only ways we can make any difference.

    If we are getting too fixated on the seatbelt issue, we are missing the point! This tragedy may be a wakeup call to us– and it’s not Hashem reminding us to wear seatbelts.

    IY”H the increase in Torah and mitzvos in the aftermath of this tragedy will ensure that Toby’s time away from us is brief, and she will rejoin us with all the rest of those in Shomayim with Moshiach NOW!

    Please everyone be careful when you write comments! This is a pain that no one can ever truely feel or understand aside for the actuall family.

    May Hashem give her faamily the strength that they need to deal with this tragedy until Moshiach comes! Let us all take on something extra in the merit of her precious neshama and say as much tehillim as we can so that meital has a complete recovery!! Moshiach Now!!!!!!!!!!

    To Bitachon:

    After the tragedy in Eretz Yisroel, when all those little children were killed, the Rebbe made a point of making sure everyone checked their teffillin and mezuzos. People asked “why check them, if everything happens from Hashem, and He decided to take them back?” The Rebbe answered, and I can’t qoute verbatim, that when a soldier dies on the battlefield, you still ask if he was wearing a helmet….

    We need to take this opportunity to stress the importance of driving carefully and safely, and buckling up every time, no matter how long the trip. We take these things for granted on a regular basis. Unfortunately, we have received a wake-up call.

    Toby was not taken from this world because she deserved it, chas v’shalom. Or because her family deserved it – they are wonderful, wonderful people who deserve only brachos and simchas.

    Sometimes Hashem does something to tell us all to do teshuva. But sometimes Hashem lets things happen because we don’t take proper care of ourselves. I don’t think Toby was killed because she deserved it.

    I come from a family where we lost a child in a completely avoidable safety accident. I can relate to this story on the most personal level. The fact remains: Hashem commands us to take care of ourselves. And yes, that include seatbelts and helmets and basic safety precautions.

    So by all means, we learn, and do mitzvos, and say tehillim. We must also show basic respect for the fact that Hashem made a world where if we choose to do something very dangerous, Hashem may let the natural world run its course, no matter how superb our middos and emunah.

    I met Toby only once. She was so sweet. She just sat down and talked with me and my friends for two hours. Her smile lit up the room, her dreams and goals seemed like a reality, her violin-melodious-rocked my world. I cannot believe she is gone. Such a wonderful girl, I don’t know a soul who didn’t like her immediately. Such a sincere sweet girl with such bitachon and power. I will miss Toby dearly. May the Eagle family handle this tragedy with bitachon and may we merit to the revalation of Moshiach NOW! A refuah sheleima to Meital-I am constantly saying Tehillim for her. And I hope Hashem gives much much strength to Chani and help her cope with this nightmare. Tears-Prayers-Hope

    I still replay in my head the call we got frieday morning to go right over to the Eagle house because something bad happened. I have been friends with toby since she was 10. she was such an amazing person. Always with a smile always happy, She was the second mother in her house to all her siblings.I cant say enough good things about her. The last time i saw her was a month ago. I did her makeup for a wedding, she looked so beautiful. Thats the last time i saw her and thats the face i have in my mind. I just keep replaying in my mind everything we did togther growing up. We use to have so much fun togther.To the Eagle family, Toby would want you to have strength ,today at her funeral was the saidest thing I ever experience to see all of you in so much pain. Hashem should give you all the strength you need.

    Toby, words fail. I just can’t believe you are gone. It felt like yesterday I had just seen you at peabody and we were talking about getting together and now you are no longer with us. You were one of the sweetest girls I met, considerate and kind to everyone. You carried a light inside of you, so beautiful and full of warmth. Your music always carried your feelngs to those who listened. You were talented, smart and always very sensitive to other people. You were one of the first girls I met when I came from Israel to the US. I was shy and afraid of meeting al these new people but you instantly befriended me and made me feel at home with everyone around me, always making sure no one was left out. You will be sorely missed. Just thinking of how such a beautifull girl was taken from this earth makes me want to cry. I will miss playing music together with you. But, wherever you are, I am sure, right now, you are smiling, looking down at us and seeing all the people who love you and miss you, who are praying for you. No matter what, I am sure you are in Eden, continuing to play your beautiful music and spreading your kindness and the light in your soul to all of us on earth. To Toby’s family, I would like to extend from my family our deepest most heartfelt regret for their tragedy and that we share in their sorrow. may you pull through. I will keep them and Toby in my thoughts and prayers. Toby will always be with you, in your memory and in your hearts.

    To the bochurim who are using this time to give advice about driving, please understand, this is the wrong way to go about things. Please dont turn a tragedy into a seatbelt campaign or other hora’ah’s. when an accident happens it’s not necessarily because they were not doing all of those precautionary things.
    do not either assume seatbelts were not worn. I just found out that toby had been wearing a seatbelt. jumping to conclusions in order to understand or explain a tragedy is the wrong thing to do. in a tragedy there is enough pain without all the pointing fingers.
    thank you.

    I went to camp with her twice but we were just friends. Then we became roommates and for a year we cared for each other like sisters. Like many of you-I know Toby, like some of you-I really know her!! She is Unique, a rare find, but of all good. Everything she does is with a true heart and with accomplishments. She dreamed of finding a cure for cancer, she livened our farbrengens with her passion on the violin, spent her free time learning Chassidus, and constantly thought of her next jump to make. Toby has accomplished in her 20 years what may take others a lifetime to accomplish. With this we should take a lesson for our life and accomplish all that we can to bring Mashiach and reunite with Toby!!!!

    Toby was special in every way. She brought joy, love, and, with her gifted teaching, improved each life she touched.

    A part of Toby will be within each of us upon whom she smiled.

    Our sincere condolences to Zalman, Yehudis and their family.

    Toby was one of my councillers at camp in scotland last year. She was one of the nicest and kindest people i have ever met and put a smile on everyones faces.
    I will always remember her.

    Remembering Toby: I most remember Toby through her mother’s loving eyes. Yehudis expresses so much love, whether in a quick assuring glance or in focused attention. Toby shares that loving attentiveness and alertness with her mom. Toby’s beauty, grace and love are so characteristic of the entire Eagle family, each member expressing their gifts and talents in their own unique, beautiful way. I remember Toby communicating so well with her family. I can picture Toby swooping up one of the young ones, and then seeing her sun-shining spirit reflected in the little one. I remember Toby asking her mom if there was anything she needed her to do, and then Toby did it without complaining – such a blessing. Toby was a friend to people of all ages, and I can imagine like myself with an almost 40-year age difference, many people of all ages also regard their friendship with Toby a blessing. I remember watching Toby select the perfect apple and prepare food for her family – her every action a prayer. I will always love her vitality, joy and grace. I will always love the way Toby interacted so graciously with all living things, be it person or animal or plant. I feel so grateful to have had a glimpse of such a beautiful spirit. How we will miss her with heartache; how we will remember her with love.

    Prayer for injured girl:
    Our Father in Heaven – please be filled with mercy for Your beloved child so frail and hurt
    Orah Meital Bas Bellah along with her beloved parents and family
    Our mouths cannot possibly express the pain and terror
    Gripping the depths of our hearts, trembling with fear over her fate
    We come before You in prayer, with our souls in such distress
    Wishing to throw our entire selves before Your Heavenly Throne
    Help us, through our Tefillos and words of Eternal Tehillim
    To pour out our souls, offering to You as a Kurban our tears and torn hearts
    Please lovingly count and accept each word of our Tefillos on behalf of Orah Meital Bas Bellah
    While we stand before You as paupers at the door anxiously craving Your salvation
    Enable our pleas to pierce the Heavens and reach Your Throne of Mercy
    For with You lies our hopes and Your salvation knows no bounds
    Our Father and King – please send a Refuah Sheleimah to Orah Meital Bas Bellah
    Watch over her and embrace her with Your loving and miraculous care
    Shine unto her Your countenance and kindness so that her healing will be complete
    Who is like You? All the glorious wonders of the world are Your daily deeds
    Oh Hashem – All Powerful One – nothing is too difficult for You
    Please do not hold back Your healing powers from Orah Meital Bas Bellah
    Help her and her family arise from this fearsome crisis more strong and complete than ever
    Please let Simcha – upon Your speedy salvation – replace the pain so deep in our hearts
    And may we all praise Your loving kindness with everlasting joy

    we luv u mital and were all so sure ur gonna get better but in the meantime we miss u so much so please fight it out and come back quickly.

    Thank you all for the beautiful words. The main thing now is to daven for Orah Meital. I’m not sure what compels me to write the following because I agree with "Bitachon" above, but I also see that it’s human nature to be curious about the facts. I have learned that Toby A"H was wearing a seatbelt at the time. Many initial reports were wrong and we should continue to reserve judgment on everything except how to better ourselves.

    Zalman Dovid, Yehudis and the entire Eagle family,
    As the time of sloshim for Toby A"H approaches along with Rosh Hashanah close behind please know that you are in our hearts, thoughts and tefillot. May HaKodeshBoruchu continue to bring you comfort, strength and good health in the coming year.We love you and we will be in touch. Moshe, Shanee and the boys.
