I lived down the street from Ursalee and got to know her while walking my dog. I helped her feed her cats when she had hand surgery and visited often after that. Unfortunately I lost track of her after Hurricane Ike. She was a gentle soul and loved her music and her cats. I'm sorry to hear of her passing since I was unable to connect with her again, but I know she must be at peace now.
