9. Beautiful song for a beautiful lady!

Loved that song! It came out my senior year in high school, and I named my first car 'Wildfire' after it! (But later I had to change its name to 'Backfire', because that's what it did mostly! a real clunker--my grandmother's 1966 Bel Air, with 160,000 miles on it when she gave it to me. That was at a time when it was miraculous that a car made it to 100K....)

I remember Riff somewhat vaguely--wish I had known her better. She seemed to be a terrific lady! May she RIP.

Your car must of been a sweet ride when it wasn't complaining.


The song seemed to fit the Riff I knew. Glad it brought back good memories for you.

I feel as if I've lost a member of my own family.

She was way too young.

I didn't know her well, but we once had a fun and friendly rival football conversation about the Pats and the Jets here on DU.

May she rest in peace.

I had shed a few tears going through some old PMs. Your post just caused a few more.

She was a wonderful person. May she rest in peace.

I never had the pleasure of meeting her but she holds a special part in my heart.

Did you know she was active in local wildlife rescue? She was an amazing person.

Her two sons are younger than I realized. Not out of high school yet.

Their friends have come together offering to help in any way they can.

DU just doesn't feel the same without her.
