      This lady just died. A child, brother, sister,mother, father,aunt and other close relatives, not forgetting friends or even persons who only knew this young lady by visiting her work place are mourning and here we are seemly making jokes or Political statements about her sudden passing. Could we please be a bit more sensitive? My condolences to her loved ones.
