a public memorial service held for Santillan on February 23, 2003 at
the Louisburg College Auditorium in Louisburg, North Carolina.

heart-lung transplants. She was forced to undergo a second heart-lung
transplant when it was determined that the first organs were
incompatible with her blood type. REUTERS/Bob Jordan/POOL
