Sad ending…strange her car was in parking lot for 6 days without people noticing.

It doesn’t say her car was there for 6 days…

Trust me, the neighborhood where I live seems to be a magnet for dumping or abandoning vehicles.
I’m the only one who calls, and they all get towed away which proves that I was right in my observation. I don’t know why anyone else likes looking at jalopies, I don’t.

It doesn’t say her car was parked there for 6 days. I’m guessing she was driving around trying to figure things out and went back to the church. If her car had been there for 6 days, they would have seen it. Someone would have noticed. The autopsy will provide more details as to how long she was there. I feel for her girls, so sad.

Women in my age, and demographic – are dying young. It is from working 2 and 3 jobs, caring for elderly (unhelpful) parents, having children late in life, and high (unrealistic) expectations – it just isn’t worth it. We need to slow way down. I tell all my friends, pretend you work for the DMV – yes, THAT slow. Stop buying stuff, and turn off the TV. Practice gratitude, and get a flip phone.

DVC Student February 22, 2019 at 6:58 PM

I don’t know about the flip phone.

WC Resident February 22, 2019 at 7:46 PM

People with flip phone have fewer episodes of FOMO. Unfortunately, I rarely see women with flip phones. They are more popular with the guys.

Silva February 22, 2019 at 9:38 PM

Last time I tried to get a flip phone T Mobile didn’t sell them anymore.

Her brother has started a Go Fund Me page for a memorial fund in her name to benefit her daughters (education, health needs) and the dog rescue foundation she was involved with. Please check it out if you would like to support in this way.
