    I feel such a lost even though I didn't know her personally, I feel like she was my friend. My first child was conceived off of Fire and Desire. I love this women so much I have every album that she has ever recorded and everytime she came to DC I was there. I also saw her several times at the Essence festival too. What a voice, too bad a lot of white people didn't know her. There will never be another Teena. My heart is very heavy right now. I pray for her family and I hope her daughter keeps her legacy alive. RIP Teena.

    I used to be a queen you know, on an island by the sea, rainbow colored people, happy as can be, there never was a problem, we never had a care, love was over flowing and its feeling shared. IN the masters plan, you will come back, woman or man, if your life is full of sin, dont you know when you die you come back again....I thank god, thank god, thank god, Im not coming back no more, been here before....TEENA YOU WILL BE MISSED.....MAY THE GOOD LORD PROVIDE SOME COMFORT TO YOUR DAUGHTER AND EXTENDED FAMILY AND FANS......
