“It’s just sad they left her to be by herself, to die alone,” Marie Jankort told WBZ-TV.
Those who knew Vo said she walked often and at all hours.
“Nine or ten o’clock, it’s not unusual to see her,” said neighbor Dan Davis. “She was very pleasant. Always had a smile and she loved walking and bike riding. I used to see her walking all over the place.”

“My message to the driver would be – the whole neighborhood lost, she was a part of the fabric of the neighborhood,” said Davis.
Vo’s family and friends are desperate for answers. They’re begging the person responsible to do the right thing and come forward.
“She passed doing something she loved. You would hope that they would’ve stopped and maybe they could’ve saved her. We’re so close to the hospital,” said Jankort.
“I just hope the driver turns himself in or herself in so they can find some closure for the family.”MORE NEWS: Keller @ Large: Some Republicans Ramp Up Appeals To Get Vaccinated, But Not So Much In Massachusetts
