The bad news really touched me... I was kidding with her better half about the band aid, saying when Miss Sweet tell you to cook...cook, I felt really bad for saying that after he shared the what had transpired. I met Miss Sweet (and Frank) some years back...She just seemed to be nice ,as time went on would often be seen at the " store" or browsing Rite Aid. She did wear her clothes. I pretty much knew it was Miss Sweet when i saw that hat, wearing her rings. She will be missed...Sorry for your loss, Condolence to the family from me, The Akins family. SUPRIZED that her "real" name was SWEETIE!!
