14. Sure, go ahead.

I'll agree with your first sentence, and note that her death is no different in that regard from any other, so why single her out as though it is?

Your second sentence is too long-winded; she left music behind, so the only real loss is potential music. The music she recorded retains its beauty and capacity to inspire.

Your third sentence doesn't make sense to me at all. :shrug:

As to the whole addiction thing, I already wrote that she arguably walked away from the proffered help before she should have.

The general theme in this thread seems to be it's a tragedy because of what "we" lost. My point was and remains, she chose her path, and she no longer has whatever demons she had in this life.

I'm okay with respecting her choices and not wanting more from her than she was willing to give.
