Rest peacefully Sue, I always thought you were the coolest chick of the 60s/70s era, I liked you best in your 70s B films and you seemed just as (if not more so) pretty on the inside than you did the out, you were better than Hollywood. Hope the best for you/your daughter, you will be missed!

Lolita was the first movie my friends got me into by opening the side door when the usher stepped out of the theater area, I was 10! That was a WOW for me. But when I was older I understood. It's still a
WOW. Now you can rest, beautiful lady.
