She was a legend! I loved her dearly. I started working with her at the age of 12 and she trained me. I learned so much from her. I loved her no nonsense spirit. I loved her ability to love fiercely. I loved her ability to put people in their place if they weren't walking the straight and narrow. I loved her sense of humor. She just had so many qualities I loved and appreciated. I hope her family knows what a gift she was and prayers for all of you during this time.
