    Re: Rest In Peace.

    Haven't posted anything until now because I was in total shock.

    I'm STILL reeling.

    RIP, James.

    His son will be dealing with this for the rest of his life; his baby daughter will never know her father. Maybe I don't have it so bad, after all.

    And THAT'S part of what's had me reeling since I heard it, shay . . .

    How in the name of God is his son going to cope with having been the one to've found his father?

    And his daughter?

    Of course, he was known as a stellar actor, but she'll never get to know or experience him as a father and the very fine man that he apparently was.

    Oh boy.

    I was a huge Soprano's fan and got to know and love James Gandolfino. Since then I've recognized him in a lot of movies like Get Shorty and many others I had seen without knowing who he was.

    I've been "Beading" (making jewelry) for about 8 years as a hobby. I had to come up with a brand name to order supplies through an online catalog and had a hard time coming up with a catchy name. Then one night I woke up with the perfect name to imprint on my earring cards! Bada Bling! get it? Bada BLing!

    RIP, dear James.

    Charlotte Brosnan - daughter of Pierce Brosnan - dead at 42 from ovarian cancer (same disease that caused the death of her mother Cassandra in 1991)

    I was surprised that he had a daughter who was in her 40's when he doesn't really look much older than that himself! He is 60 - we mark our birthdays on the same day, although he is a decade older.

    Oh, how terribly sad. I remember when Pierce's wife Cassandra died. I think she was the love of his life and it took him a long, long time to marry Keely Chase Smith. (Is that her name?) If I recall correctly, wasn't Cassandra a bit older than Pierce? Still, even though he looks young, 60 seems a bit young to have a 42 year old child.

    Charlotte was his step-daughter. IIRC, her mother was a bit older than Pierce.

    It's just terribly sad, especially since her mother was lost to the same disease.

    ECM- Pierce's wife is Keely Shaye Smith

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    The article I read said that Cassandra was 50 when she died in 1991, so she would have been 72 this year if she had lived. I remember (vaguely) the talk about how much older she was than him, but he was just devastated when she died according to reports.
