It seems to be the year of death. 2009 sucks.
My son, Guy was killed on Jan. 9th, 2009. This is something that I will never get over and there is more about this on my older blog.
Then last week, I got on the internet and read that Farrah Fawcett had died. I remember watching her on Charlie's Angels and the movies that she starred in. It made my heart sad that she is gone.
Then later that same day, I saw the announcement that Micheal Jackson had died. My first reaction was "What the %&*#?! I've been a Michael Jackson fan since the Jackson 5 exploded onto the music scene when I was a kid.
There is no other performer like Michael Jackson and I dare say there may well never be another with his talent and charisma. I've watched several of the TV specials about Michael through misty eyes and and overwhelming sadness that the King of Pop is "gone too soon".
"Thank you, Michael for the music and magic that only you could give. You will be greatly missed."
Then, I found out last Saturday, that a friend and teacher lost her battle with cancer the day before. I know that it was time, she'd been battling this for a while, and that now she's not in pain, but still her loss saddens me. "Carol, may your spirit soar. You will be missed."
My heart has been very heavy this past week with the news of the recent losses. Yeah 2009 sucks!
