Terrible Loss



How sad that we lost 2 such great entertainers in one day. Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett. The first time I think I saw Michael Jackson was either on Ed Sullivan or American Bandstand. I loved all the Jackson 5 music. I heard this amazing young man sing ABC with his brothers and I want you Back and I was hooked. After those songs there was one hit after another and each one was great. What fun I would have with my friends as a young girl singing along to his music and trying to immitate his dance moves. LOL I wonder if my friends are rememembering the same things today. I know he has had so many troubles in the past years but I like to remember him for his talent and how much fun he was to watch dance. Will there ever be another with his talent. I doubt it. And Farrah Fawcett, oh my goodness, how could it be, she was 62 years old. The years have flown by, what a beautiful woman she was. Poor thing, I wish she didn't suffer so much with cancer. My heart aches for her. I like to think that Heaven is very busy today celebrating the arrival of such wonderful talent. God rest your soul, Michael and Farrah.

Amen, Sharon. It reminds us of our own mortality doesn't it?

I HAVE PRAYED FOR THEIR SOULS, BUT I DO NOT CELEBRATE THEIR PUBLICLY SINFUL LIVES. WE MUST USE THE SAINTS AS MODELS OF GREATNESS. MAY THEY RECEIVE THE MERCY OF GOD; THIS I PRAY WITH SINCERE, CATHOLIC CHARITY.

It does remind us all that we never know when our time is. I pray for both of their families during this terrible time!

I agree---what a loss to the world, both of them! I'm 42 and have never known the world without MJ in it. WOW--something we'll be getting used to in a very sad way. And Farrah-oh how she suffered. Did you see her TV special? What a trooper she was. I never have heard anyone say anything bad about her.

Terrible loss. It amazes me how the years fly by. You almost have to remind yourself that these people won't be around forever.
