always trying to think of ways to capitalize on it. She loved
music, any kind of music, Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks being a
favorite. She had a love/hate relationship with motorcycles.

some life changing debilitating injuries from being involved in a
motorcycle accident. Recent years were filled with many
