    A death doesn't have to be suspect if the persons not 89 years old. 5 of my cousins and my brother died before 40 from the same heart condition I'm battling. And to the ignorant people not respecting death, they will one day have some one close to them pass or they flat line themselves I wanna know who will they call on then. Jesus will not tolerate evil hearts among him.

    We had the pleasure of seeing Teena in Las Vegas at a concert after we got married. She was the headliner with Howard Hewitt, Cameo, and Morris DAy. It was one of the best concerts ever.

Thank you for the beautiful & funky music... Your songs will FOREVER BE IN MY HEART...

    Lady T, R.I.P. She will truly be missed. Sadly she did not get the recognition she deserved. One of the great voices of my lifetime.
