luv,her i luv d oldies.. n im a 90"s baby ...this song brings me chills bt i luv it..wish i could've been around.. r.i.p mini
Every time I hear this song I think of how young she was when she died. And how small her children were. Whenever Maya would sing in a sketch on SNL, you could see her mama in her.
I may me young but i love me some Minnie!
I love this song. Memory Lane is my favorite. :-)
I loved her so much, and still do
Love her
Short sweet life, lots of talent, tons of heart and emotion. Truly a soul gone before her full potential and purpose were realized.
