Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming response to my Vampira/Maila Nurmi post.
Clearly this remarkable woman was loved the world over.
Maila died with very little means and a few of her friends are making funeral arrangements with the cooperation of a distant niece. She has given permission to arrange for a funeral service and a niche at Hollywood Forever cemetery.
Maila will also have her last ride in the same beautiful 1951 Cadillac hearse in which she rode in several times with her friends Bryan and Heather.
Many many comments on my post offered help, and now is the time to give it.
