I am happy that she is not suffering now. I am saddened that it ended this way.

She will live on in my mind as her immortal poster image. I imagine other men who came of age in the 70s will agree with me on this one.

I understand that he wanted to marry her as soon as she had the strength to say the vows. But that was last week I think. Not sure if they had the chance to.

That is too bad. 62 is not that old. One of my SIL is dealing with breast cancer/treatments at the moment and when a celebrity, etc dies and it's broadcasted she gets very down.
