People Died Today

Singer George Michael died yesterday, December 25th. He started out in the group Wham! and became a successful solo artist, collaborating with people like Elton John and Aretha Franklin. George was 53 years old when he died apparently of cardiac arrest.

Sad that he died on Christmas, as one of the songs I've heard a lot lately on the radio is the song "Last Christmas". He was also on the original recording of "Do They Know It's Christmas?"

He's like fire and ice and rage. He's like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun.

I am still in disbelief... Debbie Reynolds, mother of Carrie Fisher, died today after talking about her daughter who died yesterday and having a stroke. The details are not very complete yet... but what a chain of events.

A onetime Oscar nominee, Debbie appeared in more than 50 movies. She is best remembered for playing alongside Gene Kelly and Donald O'Conner in 1952's Singin' in the Rain. The joyful film is typically cited as the greatest movie musical of all-time. Other big-screen credits included The Unsinkable Molly Brown and How the West Was Won. She played the title role in the Albert Brooks comedy Mother and was unrecognizable as Liberace's mother in the acclaimed HBO biopic Behind the Candelabra. She once knocked Elvis Presley from the top of the charts, earned Tony and Emmy nods, won a lifetime achievement award from the Screen Actors Guild, as well as an honorary Academy Award.

William Christopher Dies: Father Mulcahy Actor On 'M.A.S.H.' Was 84

Christopher died of small-cell carcinoma at his home in Pasadena, California. Married in 1957, he had two children. One of their son, Ned, had Autism, and Christopher devoted much of his spare time to the National Autistic Society, doing public service announcements to bring attention to autism. In 1985, he and his wife Barbara wrote Mixed Blessings, a book about their experiences raising Ned.

Christopher died exactly one year after the death of fellow M*A*S*H actor, Wayne Rogers.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy 2017.. we lost a lot of good people in 2016, hopefully we all take a moment to reflect on their lives and what it may have meant to you growing up. Their efforts are not lost, if we take time to remember them from time to time.
