RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - A woman stranded for two weeks in her car in the Southern California desert says she forgave her husband for making a wrong turn and was prepared to die with him.

The Press Enterprise reported Saturday that Dianna Bedwell, 68, said her husband sent angels to save her after he died during the May ordeal.

Bedwell made the remarks Friday after a memorial service for 79-year-old Cecil Knutson.

Knutson died a week before off-roaders found Bedwell in the car May 24 on a remote dirt road.

The couple was driving from a casino to a son's home for Mother's Day when Knutson took a wrong turn and they got stuck.

Bedwell says her husband of 29 years was sweet and kind in his last days and died in his sleep.
