If she was so religious, why would she be afraid of death? If I believed in a god I definetly would not be afraid of dying. Doesn't that mean that I would go to heaven if I died and believed in god?

You have no right to question this womans faith, period. I never met this lady but I'd advise you to remember that she was a mother with a loving family, I do hope that your mom is just as loving and slaps your face if she were to know the coldness of your thoughtless comments. To the family, may peace be with you!

I did not know this lady, but my mom works at the senior citizen center at pavo real. She called me up today crying due to not knowing who the "lady" that got runned over was. Today she finally realized who they were talking about and called me crying really upset about her loss. I'm pretty sure whe was a very generous and loving lady to have that much impact on my mother.

No were in the article did they mention that she was afraid of death, only that she would not speak about it, or worry about it for that matter. Your comment only shows the lack of sensitivity and respect you have. Hope you don't get to live for as long as this woman did, because we could sure use a whole lot less of your kind.

Great - the last thing she did was put a dent in someone's car. How selfish of her.

Oh Lord, she kept washers and dryers in her front yard. I bet the neighbors are glad she's gone. And how was her death unexpected? Dang, she was 80.

Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. In most cases, it's not the fear of dying, but the normal human desire of not wanting to leave loved ones behind.
I'm sure you know that, which is why your lame attempt at sarcasm flops and sucks!

I doubt that any 80 year old running into a parked car could "dent" it. The story, you lame brain deals with a moving car "hitting" her!
The "last thing" she did was to leave behind a lot of family and friends who loved her. Which, by the way, is a hell of a lot more than you'll ever take to your grave.
It's quite evident you never learned the difference between being funny and being stupid.

So idiots like you walk out and expect to get hit by a car because "that's" not unexpected? Or are you stupid enough to suggest that all 80 years should "expect" to get hit and killed by a car?
And I would gladly bet you that her neighbors will miss her more than yours will miss you!
Leave the comedy to the pros, you buggers are lame!

It's The El Paso Times, for Christ's sake. What do you expect? These are the guys who tell us : "SUV jumps curb..", "Car rolls over and kills driver", "truck slams into on coming car".
These reporters just got out of college. Give em time. I'm sure it won't be long before they make the connection to a "driver".

Oh, don't get so freaked out over Finepix's comments... you righteous types like to pat(or slap) yourselves on the back with your "loving" comments. You may fool a few folks on here, but not all. Be happy...get real.

Be happy that an 80 year old woman is killed?
And you're telling people "that's" reality?

the direct quote is "My mom was a person that never wanted to talk about death. Maybe that's why she prayed so much. Death scared her," she said. so I guess you did not read the article fully. My comment was not about the lady getting run over. It was not about being insensitive. My comment was directed at the fact that they stress her religious views on the article and so it might seem that she really truly believed in god. As an atheist, I always question why religious people are so afraid of dying. I'm not afraid of dying myself and I don't believe in no imaginary afterlife.

Unfortunately for you, I was not trying to be sarcastic. I was being sincere. I think what sucks is that people don't understand what they read. when it comes to anyone dying I show respect. I did not attack her person or her lifestyle. What I was bringing to light is the fact that many highly religious people are afraid of dying. what's up with that. It's a good thing I am an atheist because if I truly believed in a god, I would have been dead long ago. why hang around here.
