    This is tragic and I cannot imagine the pain you are going through since you knew her. She sounds like she was a wonderful lady. Know her sons will miss her.

    I worked with the lady who was killed a few years ago. She was a very sweet natured, kind lady and I always liked her. I was shocked and really very saddened to read that this happened to her. She has two grown sons she loved very much.

    Why don't you show some respect for the poor woman that died in the crash?
    1. Show a picture of her....not the jerk that killed her.
    2. I agree...we don't need her address...maybe his.

    "Why is it necessary to give the victims home address!"

    So crooks can keep an eye on the place and then rob it when the family members are at the funeral home, etc.

    I know, that was zero thinking on WRAL's part huh?

    Very sorry to hear about this and thoughts and prayers to her family.

    Something doesn't quite add up. I predict there will be more to this story.

    Prayers and thoughts with Ms. Weintraub's family. Wonder what caused Glazunov to lose control?
