" She was a person of passion and great love, even when things were not going well for her. Sometimes I felt a sadness watching her, a beautiful girl who had achieved the impossible, a dream of all beautiful, talented girls - fame as an actress on the silver screen. I could see a sadness in her eyes; she had learned to smile, laugh, and clown, even though her heart was breaking. ”
