A great lady and a great entertainer. She was one of my dad's favorite singers, both for looks and voice, and I can understand why.

A beautiful woman, beautiful singer, and beautiful person.

"Lovely voice" indeed. It was said that her voice could melt the ice in club patrons' drinks.

We also lost Frank Frazetta (http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/music/la-me-frank-frazetta-20100511,0,7760969.story) yesterday. Died at eighty two.

That is most unfortunate. I like that photo of him in the link. What a great artist!

Sad to read of the quarrel among his children, though I should just shut up about that - the focus should be on his life and achievements.
