Hello there!

She was a phenomenal black woman, indeed!

May her loving soul rest in peace with the Lord.

I hope that everyone who reads about this very sad news story realizes that aneurysms CAN BE detected by many medical tests BEFORE they rupture.

Aneurysms do not just suddenly occur out of the blue. I hope that perhaps one black woman's life will be spared because she read about this tragedy and made sure that she went online to research all of the risk factors of aneurysms.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
