Godspeed, Della Reese

We have lost yet another bright light.

The wonderful Della Reese, singer, actress, and an ordained pastor, died today at 86.

Many of us remember her most recently as the wise angel Tess in Touched by an Angel, but her singing career spans decades.

Rest in peace, Ms Reese, and may your light shine eternally.

I remember that scene from Harlem Nights.

She was playing against Eddie Murphy. "Now you're gonna shoot me in my pinky toe."

I can't remember her as a singer.

Re: Godspeed, Della Reese

I'd never pretend to speak for NeillT006, but i think pretty much everybody might enjoy this...



R.I.P. Your achievements will never be appreciated properly, but you know, and i know that that is good enough.

gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

She had a great singing voice. I never knew that.
