    Sorry to hear of her passing I didnt know her but, am inspired by all our friends of that era...the WWII generation. They had grit and tenacity that is rarely seen anymore and a pride for their country and all of its people. Those that knew her personally are truly blessed, I can only read about her and wonder what she was like. God speed and 73
