    And right before Summer begins another one leaves us. They played a block of her videos earlier today on VH1 Soul. I was wondering how come they don’t show some of her videos on the regular. Great music, great voice. Rest in Paradise.

    Another one gone.  It’s getting to the point that all of the music I listen is by people who’ve passed. Makes me a little sad.

    I didn’t even know she was sick. Recently I saw her on an infomercial and I was marveling at how good she looked after all these years. 63 is not very young, but it’s not that old either. My thoughts are with her family.
