RIP Whitney . . . .

do not become a famous person who is capable of singing or else you will die from drug abuse. fact.

This is my signature. However, my signature is nowhere around here. Strange, is it not.

Believe it or not, that is easier said than done. Drugs are extremely hard to get off of after you've become addicted. Try not to surround yourself with people that may have a future with them, though it's hard to tell sometimes.

RIP Whitney.

He was an inspiration.

getting oldeer always includes the deaths of others we cared about.. sad, in one way, but survival is a necessary part of mourning, so..
this bit of logic brought to you by an idiot, of course.

Snappy, it is always sad to see a great one go.

Dick Clark at 82 years young.

I'm just an ordinary average guy with nothing to lose.

We missed noting the death of Mike Wallace of 60 minutes. he and Andy Rooney, both recently. the show can never be the same without them.

I realize its not a news worthy item in the world of Braingle posts, but please allow me my one little addition to this current event that definately means something to me. Today my father in law of over 33 years died. He was like a father to me in more ways than I could describe and more of a friend to me than an evil father in law. He has been suffering for some 2 years, so today was more of a blessing than a sad day. No need to comment... I just needed to say my peace! Thank you.

our lost friends are our breath, taken from our throats, and loss it presents us is significant.
it is good to voice the respect for those lost, public figure or close friend.
my sincere good wishes to you and yours, and my hopes that you find the joy of your memories will help to fill the pain of the loss. good men live on, in us all. praise him, and be glad to have that opportunity. that is indeed a showing of true respect.

His memory will live on in your heart and the stories you fondly share with others.
Stay strong.

Just heard Donna Summer just passed away today of cancer. What a great singer. She had an unforgettable voice, and I remember listening to her hours on end - way back in the 80's. The queen of Disco is gone - and she will be missed. A very classy lady too.
