      Something more than: yup, she's dead at 54.

      Usually they mention what she was known for, who she left behind, something about her last works, even maybe who found her or where she was found. CNN might as well said, She Croaked under her photo. Very distasteful CNN, I would've expected better.

    I just heard the news. I feel fortunate to have experienced Lady T's music live at her concert in Anaheim, Ca. a few years ago. She was still jammin' hard and she was fabulous at 50+ years young. One of my all time favorites was "Cassanova Brown". RIP Lady T. You will live on forever thru your incredible music.

    I am heartbroken. I have looked that the condolences from people who are 25 years old, I am 53 years old. I was 25 years old, or younger when she first came on the scene of music. She was definitely a part about musical repertoire in our home. I will miss her dearly. God bless her soul, may she rest in peace.
