"The day before she died she called me and wanted me to go to lunch with her and some other ladies.  When I woke up the next morning and saw the news that she had passed, I was in total shock!  I still can't believe that she's gone!  She was the absolute best, sweetest, most caring neighbor I'd ever had in my then 55 years of world travel!  She TRULY loved people and cared about people!  After my Wally died, she brought over countless meals and let me cry and get my grief out.  I felt like she grieved with me!  She was a shining example of what a Christian woman should be, and I am so blessed to have had her in my life!  I miss you dear friend.  Dinah"
