UPDATEFROM HER DAUGHTER LISA BRANDO: We just set up a way for friends and fans to be able to donate to help raise funds for my mothers memorial service. Thank you all so very, very much for all your love and support during the most difficult time in my life. I don't know how I will get thru this but I can truly feel the outpouring of my friends love for me and the love of my mothers fans. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
