    My thoughts and prayers are with this family at this time, not the outcome anyone wanted but Mrs. McBride is at peace and the dear family can have their closure. God Bless the McBride family.

    Very sad indeed, hopefully the authorities find out what happened.

    Anne, I understand your kind words however humans never become angels and God created a fixed amount of angels.

    The Lord needs special angels at this time of the year. and this lady is surely one of them. My sympathy goes out to the family and friends of this lovely lady. Not the outcome any of us were praying for but everyone cared and I am relieved she was found.
