Re: Grammy-Winning Singer Jo Stafford Dies at 90

I had no idea Jo Stafford was still alive. I love her voice. She sang a lot of sweet tunes. I listen to a lot of Big Band. Jo Stafford is up there on my favorite list along with Sinatra and Dorsey Brothers. Death of Jo Stafford, to me, is a closure of one chapter. Even if you are young, you know some of her songs already. I don't know how many other famous singers from the 30's are still alive.
