I'm still at a loss for words today. And even though I haven't seen Maila or talked to her in many years since I moved from LA I already miss her immensely.

The world just got a whole lot less interesting.

Definitely was the numero uno scream queen.
and outside of her Vampira persona she seemed like a super classy lady.

G'bye Maila
