    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Author Vince Flynn (the Mitch Rapp books) has died at 47 from prostate cancer. My son and I just started re-reading the series a couple of months ago...it's sad to think that there won't be any more books. (He wasn't the best author I've ever read, at least his early books were a bit rough, but the stories were thrilling to read.)

    There was a lot on the news about him today. Apparently President Bush said he liked his books and found them a little too realistic. I never read his books but will now.


    So sad and such a young man. He was diagnosed only about 2 years ago ... so this seems very fast.

    Wow! That one surprises me. Still so young. He's still been working. He just didn't seem like anything was wrong.

    Vince Flynn? Oh, dear. I love the Mitch Rapp series so much. RIP Vince.

    So many. James Gondolfini was also too young. I also remember Slim Whitman. **sigh** RIP all these talented men.

    Aww, rest in peace, James. I didn't really know of him before the Sopranos, but was delighted whenever I would see some of his earlier work. In his youth he was much thinner and sometimes I did not recognize him at first. 51 is too young!

    Rip, James. I loved him in the Sopranos. 51 is far too young
