      Before your write such nasty comments remember, let him who has not sinned cast the first stone. Everyone has their share of issues. And speaking of death, who isn’t going to end up dead? Unbelievable how some people love to judge and point fingers all the time. That is one part of her life, and maybe they were meant to be.
