A month before the murder of his wife, Nicole, O.J. Simpson posed for Margaret Susan Lowell in the living room of his Bel Air home. Lowell sketched his face, mixed paint to match his skin tone and then took photographs to aid her later. As she had done with dozens of players before him, Lowell did her preliminary work at the football player's home, then returned to her studio to complete the portrait. Some hang in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, and others in an alumni museum in the San Francisco Bay area. Margaret ticks off a list of who's who in football as she recalls the portraits she has done: 49ers Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott and Dwight Clark to name a few. John Maranz. Her father was a world-famous artist who painted Dwight D. Eisenhower, Winston Churchill and General Douglas MacArthur. She was hospitalized with a stroke that left her with no memory for 1 year. Her memory miraculously came back (to her doctors unbelief)! She is currently living at an assisted living center in Glendale, Ca. where she gives watercolor classes to the residents there, and is doing very well.

His latest book that he is now working on is entitled: "The Caregiver's Caregiver, A Guide to Avoiding Burnout & Surviving Grief." It is designed to teach caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones how to take care of themselves FIRST. If they don't learn this, they will likely suffer burnout and become as helpless as the person they are caring for. Tune in every Wed at Noon PST, (Re-broadcast on Saturdays at 3:30pm PST) for interviews with experts in the caregiving field, as they discuss topics of great interest to caregivers and the disabled.
