I do mourn the passing of Patrick Swayze. May he always dance in heaven.

Les Paul, my father's favorite musician. He was so innovative laying one track down after another. I can still hear "How High the Moon" which his wife Mary sang. But Paul surely will be remembered by all guitarists. RIP

The sound of the wild, but if there is no one there, does anyone hear their howls?

Tally: 12

Quote and add to the list

This list is extremely long, especially for celebrities. Really unfortunate times for them right now. It's just one after another.... I don't know why this is happening seems like every week a famous person passes away...

But then people make a big deal about a person who stood in the background for some movie dying. You have to figure out HOW famous they were, and then make a list. Yes people did die today, but instead of mourning that, why don't we celebrate the lives we GAINED instead?

regarding your commentary, it is because that is not what this topic is about.
it's about noting the people who are now lost to us.

if notariety were a requirement, you wouldn't even be here.

Wow! It's a miracle.

hmm, such a smarmy cheap shot in the inappropriate place. just as i would have expected..

now back to the subject.

No one that i know personally died today.
No one that i know, personally, died today.

the effect is the same either way. it's a good thing.

This is interesting. Go to and look for this -

Take all sorrow out of life and you take away all richness, and depth, and tenderness. The capacity of sorrow belongs to our grandeur. It is the furnace that melts hearts together in love.

Stephen Gately died on the 10th October. Most upsetting celebrity death for me by far.

Late remarks, but worthwhile nonetheless.

A good many innocent individuals died or were seriously injured at Ft Hood Last week.
They deserve a notation in here, and our respect.

as i stated elsewhere:

It is a terrible sadness for the families of the dead, the injured, even those who were there and had to see such a grotesque display of humanity gone wrong.
It is also a terrible sadness for all of us that the affiliations of this individual will be seen in such a bad light by so many who already divide the world into us vs them.
We all will suffer from this event in some way.

You are right, io. They do deserve our respect and sympathy.

In our household, we always have a spot for our soldiers, navy and airforce people. They do so much, they sacrifice of themselves so we can have a good way of life.

Yes, that was well said, by both of you! And, I totally am grateful for our military personnel! The only objections or disagreements I have are for the President and his advisors, never for the actual military personnel.

There were also 9 women's bodies found at this insane person's house... he strangled all of them, in Cleveland? Terrible terrible story... the families of these girls didn't know what had happened to them until the bodies were found a day ago... That is a terrible thing to have to live with.

Life... can be so many things... how can anyone ever think they are RIGHT? HAhahahahahahaha!!!!!

Glad to hear it snappy. I check the obituaries every morning, and I still haven't found me so I better get to work.
