I have heard everything from her choking on a chicken sandwhich to a ham sandwhich and it really sickens me. This woman was incredible, and sang so beautifully.



    I loved seeing her character on the Scooby Doo cartoon when I was a child. And a few years ago I got the honor of seeing her daughter on television, and she's a slimmer version of a wonder mother.
