& # 39; She is not herself now, she is not in a stable place, she is not in her right mindset, & # 39; said Mrs. Sinclair.
& # 39; It is extremely heartbreaking for all of us who are close to her and have seen her struggle. & # 39;
Mrs. Sinclair, who has been friends with Mrs. Stedmances for six years, said she felt good when the couple last spoke.
