Andy, you are a troll and an ahole.

The report I read said she and male friend had parted because she wanted to return to the car and heRead More had supposedly decided to keep hiking. Her father is the one who reported her missing. I haven't read much about his whereabouts in all this.

Yes, odd to me that he'd continue on in the dark without her, and just how did he get home? Her carRead More was left there and her dog made it back without her. Did her "male friend" not get alarmed that she didn't come back? Why did so much time go by before reporting her missing?

Their seems to be some unanswered questions on her death that need to be answered. I find it hardRead More to believe that two women could die a couple of weeks apart in the same area as a coincidence. Let's hope they find answers here...

We have all lost a great asset and friend. Not only did Lumpy play Santa Clause to our family, butRead More he accompanied Judi and me to the UC Medical Center Christmas season to bring gifts and cheer to the children in the cancer ward. The Valley will not be the same.

I am very saddened to hear about the passing of one of my favorite Sonoma "mentors".Read More During our time serving together on the Sonoma Valley Citizen's Advisory Commission, Ig always took me under his wing and helped me understand the opposing viewpoint. It was always a pleasure bumping into him at the Sonoma post office a few times a month, and he never missed an opportunity to stop and ask me how work was or how the family was doing. He was particularly interested in a foster child we took in, and always asked about her well-being. Once I asked him who I had to kill to get a bridge named after me, and he just laughed. Ig was a Sonoma treasure, and I will miss him.

Tourists always ask me what I like to do in Sonoma when they come in to my bead and jewelry store onRead More Broadway. I almost always tell them that my favorite thing to do is walk up the plaza, go up to Spain St. Turn right and continue to 2nd Street East. Turn left. Take in the Clydesdale horses and continue up to Vella Cheese. Go in and if you're lucky Ig will be there. Purchase great cheese at real factory prices. Take in The Patch across the street for fresh vegetables. Walk back and enjoy rural and historic Sonoma a block off the Plaza. Tourists were in the shop one Sunday morning and a couple Sonomans. I suggested they go to Vella's. One of the locals said she didn't think they were open on Sunday. I called Vella's. Ig answered the phone on the second ring and confirmed that they were closed on Sundays. I didn't know him very well but I really admired him a lot.
