Not sure what to say?

A beautiful voice, I hope she was happy in her life.

Eternal yours. Thank you for sharing your artistic gifts.

Norma's 'Walking my Cat Named Dog' was the first record I ever bought as a child. It remains one of my favourite songs, along with 'I'm the Sky'. I'll carry your songs with me forever, Norma.

So many nights with my little transistor radio listening to you. I was in a small Louisiana town...hugging my cat and loving your song. What beauty you brought to my life, Norma Tanega. Thank you.

Go in peace, Norma. She was an important part of my life through music, both recorded and together. Much missed.

I had never heard of her until I saw the movie What We Do In the Shadows. I said, WHO IS THAT! WHAT A GREAT SONG! I'm glad I found her music and she looked like a beautiful person!

To the Tanega family I offer my condolences. May it help to know that the God of all comfort who is the hearer of prayers can comfort you at this difficult time.

We are saddened for the loss of your dearly beloved loved one and all of those whose lives she touched through her accomplished folk singer and experimental musician. May you find comfort in your wealth of fond memories together with Ms. Norma Tanega. May the God of tender mercies, love, peace and comfort be with you all during this most difficult time.

God is a God of all Comfort and he will Comfort the family's .....My condolences
