    Sandy. I am not a relative, but I did work with her. She was a wonderful woman and cared for the people she worked with. She will be missed by friends and family. You should be ashamed for making such a comment. I feel sorry for you that you need to say something like that to feel important. Such a waste.

            Most of these posters swim at the bottom of the gene pool. NIT throws them rotten red meat to make a buck for the editor.
