Sorry for your loss John @ Gayle ,Dan @ Connie and Deb @ Richard . Had quite a few laughs over the years with this terrific Lady . One that sticks in my mind forever is how Lyla in 5 seconds could wake up from a total sleep and scream and throw things at 5 in the morning.. She was talented....
Sorry for your loss
