"I met Ms. Taylor while stationed at Grand Forks Air Force Base in the 1980's She performed at the enlisted club. She and her husband were there. My husband (now divorced) was from Nashville so they both came from Tennessee and had a lot in common. She was a great entertainer and so very gracious.
I'm glad to have met her. She was a history maker!"

"I was very saddened to read of the loss of KoKo. She was truly a fabulous singer. This is truly a time to draw close to God in prayer. The Bible tells us: “Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.” (James 4:8) One of the principal ways to draw close to God is through prayer. Do not underestimate its value! The Bible makes this comforting promise: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18) It also assures us: “Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself, and he himself will sustain you.” (Psalm 55:22) Please know that your family is in our prayers.

My fondest memory is taking my young daughter ( about 7 yrs. old at the time ) and her friend to one of your shows back in 1988. The two girls ran to visit with you in your trailer and you welcomed them in with open arms. They never forgot and still talk about it to this day.
You will be missed by many. I will cherish your memory and music always."
