    Venola was old in age, but very young in her spirit. She was a very funny great grandmother, always laughing playing domino and having a beers with young people. She will be missed. Condolences to all her big family. Love and peace.

      Never judge a driver by his age; judge a driver by his ability. Lots of drivers in their 80s that are more responsible on the road than many 30 year olds.

        No, really do judge drivers by their age. Many drivers over 75 vastly over-estimate their ability to drive and are a risk to other road users and pedestrians.

          Insurance ratings do not lie and support your comment. The elderly are much much worse drivers than they believe and the public believes.
