She was my neighbor for 7 years, she was a very kind and sweet lady who loved to Garden. She was very funny and told me about her life and her children and grandchildren, whom she loved very much.

I liked her on the show. Seemed like a nice person. You get 1024 comments on the website about Charlie Sheene and 4 about a nice lady. Where are the priorities?

A life long and well-lived,but still so sad to see her go;life is changes--
"Every moment one lives is different than the next.The good, the bad, the hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love and happiness are all interwoven into one single indescribable whole that is called LIFE. You can not separate the good from the bad. And perhaps there is no need to do so either." JBKO
