My condolences to your family. She was a very very special friend to me and I can't begin to say how much I will miss her. Dana was without a doubt one of the Best to walk this earth. I know that she is no longer in pain and for that only I am happy for her. We had so many great times together that I can't name any one in particular, but I do know she may have been the greatest shopper on Earth.

RIP my friend!
