A Year in Remembrance-Stars Lost


The end of the year always brings back memories of the things that have passed. Inevitably, I have to think back on the people who have passed away. Here, I will pay small tribute to those that were lost this year. Of the stars that I knew even somewhat.

    Larry Hagman
    Jenni Rivera
    Hector “Macho” Camacho
    Charles Durning
    Gerry Anderson

Some of these deaths were very shocking to me. Most especially Michael Clarke Duncan, Jenni Rivera, Sage Stallone, Leslie Carter, Tony Scott and Macho Camacho.

The most prominent tragedy in my mind, especially these past holiday days and when I’m among my beautiful niece,4, and awesome nephew,3, are the lost of the 20 children and 7 adults that were tragically murdered and lost to us on that frightful Friday morning.

May God keep all these souls with him and forgive their wrongs. May their families find peace in the new year.

And may you all have a truly Happy New Year!! 2013!!
