It was said best by her daughter on her website
"Message From The Taylor Family On behalf of the entire family of Koko Taylor, I wish to express my profound gratitude for the outpouring of love, sympathy, and support sent via Mama's web site and Myspace, by so many wonderful fans and friends throughout the world. Your caring messages have been a source of strength and comfort to us all in this time of loss, and I know your love helped to lift my mother into the waiting arms of our Lord. I rejoice in the thought that, as so many of you suggested, she is now singing with the angels. I believe that, if we just take the time to really listen, we can hear her all the way down here. Sing it, Mama – we’re listening with our hearts. Rest assured I will remain devoted to my mother's legacy and do all I can to keep her memory, music, and Foundation alive. Sincerely, -- Joyce "Cookie" Threatt" She will be missed, and I love this album.
