    I voted for her. I liked that she was upfront, outspoken, funny and didn’t hold her mind back on things. She’s like my grandfather on my mother’s side of the family. Like a bird flying so high to the clouds that on one can touch her. I will miss her and my heart goes out to her family, friends, and all of the people she worked with in this time of need.
