    I have known “Boots” for many years, we’ve not conversed since she moved from Ohio. She was a very close confident to our daughter Gina who is devestated. I love her so much, she was one strong, loving woman who adored her family. I am really hurt over her untimely death, she will be missed. My prayers go out to Richard and the family. God be with you and comfort as only He can. Sandi Smith Burns Tennessee.
