I have a brother who has the same thing he also is 7'7" and a sister who has it she is 6'3" since my brother had it they realized hers sooner.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

She is not the tallest woman. That honor goes to one in China.

C'mon LC, the internet IS the GOSPEL. But if it claims that the tallest woman is in China, it's probably an illusion...the Chinese are pretty good at that lately! LOL !!

No, I think the internet claims that there was a man from Appalachia that coughed for 32 years. And because it was on the internet....believe it!

3 hours have gone by and "Gail in Wyoming" hasn't written in to express "thoughts and prayers?" What is going on??? Something must be wrong!!!

Maybe she is still expressing thoughts and prayers about the Morgan Freeman car accident - oops, that was last week. Or maybe Bernie Mac's death, since that was only a couple of days ago.
