    If there's such a thing as a perfect day for a funeral, Friday was it. Puffy white clouds dotted the blue sky, the temperature a perfect 75 degrees.

    The friends and family of Teresa Rosebrough packed the church for a triumphantly joyful, yet mournfully sad memorial service.

    At 50, our friend T lost her three-and-a-half-year battle with ovarian cancer.

It is a luxury car that gets 32 miles per gallon on the highway, and it could easily be the most comfortable car I've ever owned.
