So in the past week, we’ve now seen the deaths of three celebrities.
Some initial thoughts about them:
Ed McMahon -Â This is sad in the sense that it’s always sad to hear of someone’s death, but he was old. He was 86 years old and lived a pretty full life.Â While sad, it wasn’t exactly shocking news.
Farrah Fawcett – This morning we heard ofÂ the death of Farrah Fawcett. Â This one is really sad -Â probably a little more saddening than hearing of the death of Ed McMahon, because of the manner in which she died. Â She’d been very sick with cancer for a long time and she was only 62 years old. Â Really, really sad, but in no way is her death shocking.Â Â It seemed that it was really only a matter of time.
Michael Jackson – I’m not home from work for 5 minutes and I hear about this one… WTF? No, really… W. T. F? I guess my reactions to his death are much the same as my reactions to his life.Â I am both shocked and confused. Weird. Â Â Only 50 years old. Â And no matter what you may think of hisÂ bizarre personal life, there’s really no denying his legend status in music. Â He was an amazing talent.Â While I don’t know how sad I find this one (hello, I’m still shocked!), you have to feel really bad for his kids.Â That just sucks.
Wow.Â Just wow.
