Amanda S. Stevenson Went on a date and he couldn't get a taxi. Tried the subway and he was mobbed by autograph hounds. It was very funny because they all knew me which puzzled him. How I could I be such a big celebrity and he didn't know what I had done. Well, it's because I had been an autograph hound myself ten years before the date!

Amanda S. Stevenson I was four years old and being severely abused and Gerda Chan saved my life. She physically assaulted the person protecting my abuser and threatened to have them and my abuser arrested and jailed. This was a life saver for me. I looked for her for over 50 years to find her and thank her. I finally found her and she said at age 92 that she wouldn't die until I found her. Then she revealed a SECRET. For years the person who protected my abuser and my own twin said I had lied and I hadn't. She knew that they were lying even though my abuser had died when I was only 12. I loved Gerda for a lifetime and love her still. She was a nurse and she did the right thing. She got my BOOGIE MAN out of my life.

Amanda S. Stevenson She worked for me cleaning house and driving me around Pittsburgh while she was going to California University near Pittsburgh. I helped her with her English homework. Gemma was very good in math. In a few short months she had enough money to buy a new car ($14,000) and happily bragged about it. I left Pittsburgh and moved to Virginia Beach. Birthday: 6/25/1959 - 7/17/2014 I once had given her gifts because she promised to stop smoking but she didn't. She died of lung cancer. Some day I would like to visit her grave.
