    As of now, the official cause of death has not been released. She joins that long list of celebrities that left us too early.

    What a wonderful Tanka for a magnificent woman star! She was admired by so many people in this world! You said everything so perfectly! It's unfortunate that she died, she had so much more she could have contributed to everyone! Great Work on your poem!!

    Chris, I just found out about it when I checked my email. Her birthday would not be until August 9; so she was 48.
