TOPIC: Oh Nooooo. Another Death. :(


Oh my goodness. It is hard to believe that
so many folks are passing away. So Sad.

Today I read that Barbara Sinatra the wife
of Frank Sinatra passed away of natural
causes this morning at the age of 90.

Then on facebook I saw that Preston Roberts
on Mt. Men passed away yesterday at the age
of 60 of cancer. He worked along side of Eustace
if you are familiar with the show.

I am sooooo sad of his passing and just so
sad of the passing of John Heard - Home Alone
dad, Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington just
recently.

Keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.

June Foray, the voice of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show,
Rocky the Flying Squirrel and a key figure in the animation
industry, died Thursday. She was 99.

Do you remember that show?

Indeed I do...I am a woman 'of a certain age' you know ;-)

I only hope to live to see 90 and still be fairly active. That would be a blessing! I have many years to go before then

Thank you Seren. 99 yrs is a long time
and hope she lived a full happy healthy
life.

For sure she gave many of us lots of
laughs with her voice of her cartoon
characters for many yrs.

She must have been doing lots
of things right in her life to live
so long.

What a joy and blessing to have
her in our life and time to appreciate
her talents.

A gift that keeps on giving for
a lifetime.

Shey William Feherty, the oldest son of Golf Channel
personality David Feherty, died from an overdose last
Saturday on his 29th birthday.

From what ive read, I'm not quite sure if
David himself has had drug and alcohol
problems in the past.

Anyway....I put the hyperlink below if
you'd like read it.

So sad once again.

Hi Sharon, hope you're well.x

It seems to come in waves, we have a lot of people dying , who we've grown up with most of our lives. I was sad when Peter Falk, who played Colombo died. It was 2 or 3 years ago now but he got altzeimers and didn't even remember being Colombo. That is so sad.

Life is so fragile, it seems.

Thank you Mags.

At the end of each yr. there is a list of folks
that had passed away thru out the yr. Many
I had no idea they were still with us until
I would see the list. And yes, many we grew
up knowing thru tv shows or music or the
arts. Actors, actresses, musicians, sport's,
etc.

Life is fragile it seems as you shared Mags.

Stay strong in heart, mind and soul for
as long as we can and life permits.

My mom got to meet Glen Campbell at a ladies golf tournament in Branson, Missouri a few years ago, said he couldn't have been nicer to everyone.

This is my favorite song of his, just beautiful. Written by Jimmy Webb.

What a beautiful voice that man had! I always loved his version of "Still Within the Sound of my Voice".

Thank you Seren and Snazzy for sharing
your favorite Glen Campbell Song and
memories with us.

I just saw this video on the CMT Channel
and I got goose bumps. My heart is sad and
just hate to see those we grew up listening
to took his final breath and will no longer
be with us physically on Earth.

He did leave us his gift of music and
kindness that will remain in our heart
forever.

I'm soooo sad that Chester Bennington has died , he was a tortured human in the mind and such a beautiful person

Sometimes it's hard to imagine that rich and famous people suffer and battle their demons but they sadly do

It's hard to believe that one of our favorite
actors passed away 8-11-2014

Robin Williams at the age of 63

I found a little read to share with you guys
but I'm sure there are more if you goggle him.


“It was not depression that killed Robin,” Susan
told People magazine in one of her first interviews
since losing her husband. “Depression was one of
let’s call it 50 symptoms, and it was a small one.”

Instead, she argued that it was a debilitating
brain disease called diffuse Lewy body dementia
or dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) that took
hold of Williams, and probably led him to suicide.


Frequently misdiagnosed, DLB is the second
most common neurodegenerative dementia
after Alzheimer’s and causes fluctuations in
mental status, hallucinations and impairment
of motor function.


Mental illness is nothing to joke
about and still plagues many today.
One must understand it first then
seek solutions by those capable in
this field to help relieve the pain that
comes from it.

That was truly heartbreaking to hear about Robin Williams, I seen an interview with his wife, she said his anxiety was so bad his skin would just break out all over in rashes! And he just couldn't bear it.

Such a shame, a truly special person to be taken from us!
