I would have shoved her through paper so hard, then bent her legs to hold her in place.  It's sad to see someone go before realizing their destiny.  No other word for it, just sad.

Very sad to hear. Mavis looked and sounded great at the Grammy's, and I loved that the song wasn't over until Mavis decided it was over.

Damn straight (though Brittany Jackson from Alabama Shakes was pretty awesome too.)

She didn't lose her soul, subby. She took it with her. It is her family and the rest of humanity that has suffered a loss of soul with her passing.
