We need to drop discussing this subject; they're dropping like flies.

 

It is like when my dad had a poker game with eight guys in it. Within one 3 year period, four of them dropped dead of various causes. At the fourth funeral, the remaining four made a pact to never play poker together again.... and they never did.

 

It is not that I am superstitious; however,..............................

Dan Haggerty, star of The Adventures of Grizzly Adams has passed away of cancer too.
He was 74.
Too much cancer.
My sympathies and prayers to and for all these well know people's loved ones.
I loved Alan Rickman in Sense and Sensibility.

@doglover52 - I remember him from the 1967 TV series "Coronet Blue", where Bedford co-starred with Frank Converse.

Stars We're Losing in 2016 - Celine Dion's Husband/Manager Rene Angelil

2,165 Views
Message 26 of 30

I guess we should also mention that Celine Dion's husband & manager, Rene Angelil, died of cancer at 73 yesterday. They'd been married for 21 years & have 3 children, but had met 14 years earlier when he discovered her at age 12.

 

Angelil had his first battle with throat cancer in 1998, but had more surgery for it again in 2013. They were told his condition was terminal last September.

@nctarheel - Ironic that both Bowie & Rickman were 69 .. which today is considered young. Pat Harrington was mentioned in "TV Talk"; I think he was in his 80s.

Richard Libertini- Fletch and All of Me fame
Pat Harrington- One Day At A Time fame
As they say, we ain't gettin' any younger!

This year doesn't seem to be getting off to a good start, with David Bowie dying on 1/10.

 

And now Alan Rickman, "Giant of British Films & Theater" also 69, and dying of cancer too! MSN - Alan Rickman He had such a distinctive voice and good looks!

 

He still as a movie coming out; "Eye in the Sky", and a voiceover as the caterpillar in "Alice Through the Looking Glass", to be released later this year.
