My deepest condolences to Richard and family. I just saw her at the Valle Escondido garage sales. My heart is broken, as she was such a wonderful person and so sweet. Every time we ran in to each other it was like we saw each other all the time. I will miss her and running in to her. Love, Hugs and Prayers to her family.
