I am shedding real tears here. Dr. Maya Angelou was like a surrogate Grandmother to me. Whenever I've needed advice, inspiration, comfort or just a smile, I would find them in her words and deeds. cry

Rest In Power, Dr. Maya Angelou. You will never, ever be forgotten. rose

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

None of the news reports say why she died. They said she had cancelled some appearances because of illness, but they don't report what happened. I wonder why.
