  1. A generation is pretty much gone. And we are lining up for the next round. That’s the way that the world goes round. R. I. P.

    • I always find it shocking and sad when someone famous dies, particularly when they are not of an age where they should be dying. That is the way of the world though I guess!

  2. Very sad 😦 Didn’t even hear about some of these. RIP.

  3. A year of losses. 😦
    R.I.P.
