He said, “It happened so rapidly. No one was by her side. With the ventilator decision, you just get a call they are planning to turn the ventilator off.

“She was such a popular person, there would have been people there to fight her corner so to speak.

“The youngest son is in a terrible position. He was extremely close to her. He was living with her. She was just an amazing aunt.”
