RIP Etta James, 1938-2012
It was just reported that Etta James has died. I was introduced to her music more than 25 years ago by my late friend, Andy, and have loved it ever since. Ms. James had a rough time of it with leukemia, dementia and other illnesses for several years. It's my wish that she and Andy are sitting on one of Saturn's rings right now, with all the rest of the fabulous people no longer among us, sitting and laughing, and singing, and at peace.
