Wonderful, genuine, down to earth lady. Was nice to spend some time with her. Will try to make the funeral. Please let me know if I can do anything.
She is so kind and nice. My house cross the street of the house. I feel sad that I was working remotely at home crossings her house at that day she passes away.
I wish I stopped by and visit her earlier of the day. I feel so regret.
