    How does this happen. There is no reason a 96 year old lady should have been out in a marshy area. IIf she lives in North Oaks you know dang well they have money and could have had an aid for her.

      Are you insinuating that rich people are cheapskates? That they don’t deserve to be richer by letting Granny fend for herself? Well,their are a lot of oldtimers out there who are getting too much money according to the GOP! That’s why they want to take some of it away and give it to the multimillionaires who OWN them! Life is hard and they want it to be even harder! Work hard and you will get a nice pension they once said to you.Now that it’s your time to collect it,they are backing out of the deal! Hey,just pay them back any which way you can,like maybe voting Democrat!

        You are a complete and total idiot. Yes if they had money and refused or were neglectful in having an aid for a 96 year old lady then they are wrong.

        Nothing political about it. Its called common sense and you have NONE.

    Ah, yes… make this political, by all means. Let the name-calling begin.

    I don’t know who she is… but I hope she died doing something she enjoyed, like watching birds and wildlife out in the Marsh.

    If she sould have been wearing the new glow in the dark depends (the same kind Don Shelby wears), this tragedy would have never happened. They had the money.

      1. Frank says:

        No ace but I’m a little psychotic. Are you psychic or belong to the psychic network?
