    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Sad good-bye to Jim Arness, and we lost his younger brother, Peter Graves just last year. Both of them provided decades of entertainment.

    My opinion is that we need more doctors like Dr. Kevorkian.

    I didn't realize I shared a birthday with Jack Kevorkian. He was always something of a hero of mine. There are worse things than dying and I believe people with terminal illness, in pain, should have the right to end their lives if they're ready. RIP Dr. K.
    Count your blessings!

    Its also legal to grossly overcharge people for life sustaining health care...

    I, wholeheartedly, agree with you!

    I am completely heartbroken. I had so hoped that he would fight through.

    My dad died after having a stroke. I was hoping medicine had figured out what to do in the years since then. So sad...

    Oh, no.

    So sad to read this.
    RIP, Mr. Clemons.
    Your music will be much appreciated up there.

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Been on youtube watching concert footgage of Jungleland (his best sax solo), thunderroad - That one made me cry. At the end of the song Bruce jumps off and amp and runs up to Clarence and they hug and Bruce kisses him. I lost it right there. I think that one was from the mid 80's.
    RIP Big Man, no one could make it wail like you did.
