  1. Love to Love You Baby

    I am so sad. Who can not love Last Dance? Her music came on and parts of our bodies just started moving by themselves! A true star and sweetheart! And she wasnt an alcoholic or drug head! Sweet sweet angel !

    Though I'm a long time rock n' roller.... Even I must admit that she had an outstanding voice, wonderful energy and made me move out on to the dance floor on many occasions. Rest In Peace Donna.

    The only thing is question is what drugs she was taking. Crack or prescription pills? These people are always predisposed to drug abuse.

    She will be greatly missed. She was talented, beautiful, and lovable. My heart goes out to her family...especially her children.
