    Yeah, just finished reading that. My partner had just asked me about her last week, so I looked her up online, and told him: "Yep, she's still alive, according to this." Now I have to tell him she's dead, since he doesn't ever read online news, nor watch TV news, finds it too depressing. [SIGH] Great talent, great lady...

    Yes, she was a great singer and one classy lady. This was certainly sad news indeed.
