Yeah, we lost several great people this past year.


Everyone seems to have someone on the list that affected them. I remember first seeing a thread here back in January about Heath Ledger, and I was just in shock. I kept checking all the websites for updates & news. That was pretty sad. And then George Carlin... that one hit me pretty hard, and still does. It still makes me sad as I type this thru tears, as does the passing of Paul Newman. I knew earlier in the year he was ill, so I was less shocked by his passing, but still saddened just the same. I believe I've saved my magazine covers for Newman's passing, but Carlin didn't appear on any, at least none that I subscribe to Those two were pretty tough for me. Just a lot of great people passed this year

I didn't know Roddenberry died, either. Bummer.

Well the future Rob Schneider one will no doubt make you feel better.

Wow, Lila--thank you for compiling this. When I see all of this together, instead of just one now and then, it really hits me.

I was watching one of those Best and Worst of 2008 shows and they did the snippets of the new babies, celeb weddings and people we've lost this year. I lost it. The tears flowed. We lost some awesome talent and some real dignified people this year.

Same here. The day he died, I listened to the full version of Joy and tried to hold back tears.

Really a lot of tragedies in 08. Lot of good people. All things must pass. Etc.
