    I found this too. Man, if people thought the movie was a tear-jerker, this article will put them over the top!

    Oh yes. I cried. I am still crying. Proof corporate America isn't all evil and that some people actually have a heart.

    That is a very touching story. At least she was happy during her last moments.

    Wow! This is sad. The power of Disney (and in this case Pixar) can do amazing things for people.

    P & P go out to her family and friends.

    I just this this too. Unbelievably sad. You never know how good you really have it until you read a story like this.

    Re: Get out the Kleenex

    I read this sad story at work today during lunch and I'm sitting there in our breakroom with tears in my eyes. Very sad, but maybe it helped the girl and her Mom at the end. At least I hope say, and that's the way newspaper article made it sound.
