March 1995 Maryland @ The Equestrian Center In Upper Marlboro, MD 20772 was another scheduled concert. I should know, My name is Jeannie Hoffman and I reside in Ridge, Md and I was an Usher/Staff member scheduled to work that concert. Until we got the notice Of Selena's untimely and broken hearted death. We will miss her very much. My young daughters love her music and can't get enough. And I never will either. Our hearts will always go out to her family members. We love you too and you are in our prayer until the end of time. 8/2011.
