Luther Vandross's Last Days
Oprah: After Luther's stroke, you were one of the optimists saying, "I believe he will come back." Did you believe that or were you being hopeful?

Patti: I was being very hopeful. I knew he was in a bad place. He would sing with me when I would come, but he couldn't quite get it the way that he did.

And I think maybe Luther wanted to go. Maybe he wanted to just say goodbye, knowing that he would never leave me. But I think he wanted to just take a rest.
