      Hwy 10 and Thurston….that’s where the Vineyard used to be. Man, I miss that place, great prime rib and the salad was the bomb.

    She obviously DID suffer greatly before dying. The desperate depression that led her to do something so horrible proves it. Does that, somehow, make it better for you??

    Times are definetly tuff now. Lots of desparados out there. Any one of us could come onto hard times these days. Gotta keep focussed and hopefully have back up plans

    She lost her husband to brain cancer a couple of months ago, and she left young children behind. Such a sad situation…I hope it wasn’t intentional.

      Sorry, this was a mistake…the woman I wrote about actually was hit on the sidewalk in Maple Grove. So very sad.
