Natalia & Melissa you guys gave your very best in trying to revive her to the very last minute.
It is one of the biggest gift one could give to save a life.
Please keep up the good work. It will be marked on your list of good deeds and will be rewarded for it in the heaven.
Edith was a religious and was a great person and was always ready to help anyone and everyone. We know her for over 30 years. God rest her soul in peace.
God bless,


Thank you very much for your words. Please let her family know that I would love to get in contact with them. They can message me through Facebook “Natta Blatter”. God bless her

Rest In Peace dear lady. You were taken far to soon. Prayers for your family, God stay with them they will need all your help to get through this.

Can we please change the way these crashes are reported? She was killed by a careless DRIVER. It is important to make this personal. To identify that a human being did this to another. It wasn’t a fluke thing, but a careless, impatient person who did this. Also, could you please have your reporters push the police and ask why a driver making a left turn, and, therefore, CLEARLY violating Ms. Perez’s Right of Way was not ticketed and charged with that crime? VTL 19-190 makes this a criminal event and should be properly prosecuted.

So sad
Edie was an angel on earth and didn’t deserve to be killed by a mindless driver in the middle of the day
The angels are weeping as we all are
