It's still so hard to think about her sometimes. It still just doesn't seem real, every once in a while I'm thrown back to the moment I heard the news and wish it were all just a bad dream.

She was such a blessing, too good for this Earth.

Absolutely agree. When it came to potential and absolute star power ... she was the total package. Literally everything the industry wanted/needed.
