    To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, our loss is heaven's gain. I pray God sends comfort and strength to her daughter ,family,friends and fans; me definitely being one of her biggest fans. Having seen her on many concerts & various venues. Was going on Feb 13th. God Bless

    She looks old and tired in this photo. She does not look like the same person at all. Maybe that affected her. Some celebrities can't deal with aging. Nobody knows how she died. But at 54 it is suspect. It's a shame. I love her voice.

    I have been a fan of Lady T since day damn one.... We will miss her... She transcended the color lines time and time again. I have often challeneged unknowing friends to listen to her music and tell me what her nationality was.... EVERYONE white or black thought that she was black..... wow.... She is and was the queen of blue eyed soul!!!!!! R.I.P. Lady T!!!!!!!

    Why the singer dead at 54? I don't understand how it has to be the same sad thing as last year when Michael passed. But I will play her music in 2 1/2 months so I will give my respect to Lady T.

    I just don't believe it. I guess i'm in denial. She was my number 1 favorite female artist over all. And yes, her angelic voice reaches deep down inside of you. And the song "dear lover", and now that i found you..amongst many; let you know when you have true love. She song what every woman wanted to tell her man...and Lady T just put it in a song for you with such passion and romance...she will be missed..
