We were buddies in elementary school and when we ran into each other over the years, it was as if no time had gone by. I was truly shocked to see this, as I didn't even know she was sick. I saw her a couple years ago and she didn't look or seem sick at all. My heart goes out to her husband and family. God bless and rest in peace!
