Just two days before memoirist and poet, Maya Angelou’s passing, the late author posted a message on Facebook, letting her fans know that “I am each day better.”

“An unexpected medical emergency caused me the greatest disappointment of having to cancel my visit to the Major League Baseball Civil Rights Game ceremony,” she wrote. “I am so proud to be selected as its honoree. However, my doctors told me it would be unadvisable for me to travel at that time. My thanks to Robin Roberts for speaking up for me and thank you for all your prayers. I am each day better.”

Angelou passed away on Wednesday morning at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. According to Angelou’s literary agent, Helen Brann, the legendary author had been “very frail and had heart problems, but she was going strong.”

Maya’s family also released the following statement:

“Dr. Maya Angelou passed quietly in her home before 8:00 a.m. EST. Her family is extremely grateful that her ascension was not belabored by a loss of acuity or comprehension. She lived a life as a teacher, activist, artist and human being. She was a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace. The family is extremely appreciative of the time we had with her and we know that she is looking down upon us with love.”

RIP Maya Angelou.

Not once, but twice!

Ms. Lewis handled the situation like a pro — but also added a side of shade — and the whole encounter ended up being funny as h*ll!
