    LOL — go Hillary! How annoying that must have been to send Bill to bring Euna and Laura home — when surely she had been working behind the scenes to make it happen.

    So sad for Maria Shriver who was SO close to her mother. Eunice was always incredibly supportive of everything Maria did, and showed up at events even when she was injured.

    RIP Eunice. She was a beautiful person inside and out.

  4. rosie818 says:

    RIP Eunice but what she started is a such a great remembrance of her kindness.

    And I agree Hillary had a right to be a bit angry

    And if you had a $300,000 estate why are you on the streets?

    Will people ever respect Hillary Clinton? She definitely deserves it

    And it just goes to show you can’t treat every homeless person you see so cruel. Sometime, they’re not destitute at all.
