45!  I thought she was a bit older than that.  She had a bit of a pointless existence but it's still sad.
Never tell me the odds.

Oh no, same age as me and if it was the tumour that claimed her, not a nice way to go.
I feel like Captain Kirk, on a brand new planet every day, a little like King Kong on top of the Empire State

She was a classic case of, "Money doesn't buy you happiness".

It's a shame that kids just get to see the edited "red carpet" highlights of the lives of people like this (See: Made in Chelsea..etc) and not the years of rehab and therapy.

Some people say I'm self-obsessed but that's enough about them.

I doubt it was the tumour but I'm sure we'll discover more later.

They didn't seem to find a tumour.

My understanding is that perforated ulcers are usually very painful I doubt the lady would have died alone 'peacefully in her sleep' without additional strong medication.

Methinks there is more to this sad story.

Money may not buy you happiness, but it certainly disposes of a shedload of UNhappiness.
