    What a horrible way to wake up. I loved Bernie Mac, this is such a shock. Rest In Peace, you will be missed.

    I'm completely sadden by this. I've always loved Bernie Mac. I remember reading news yesterday that he was going to be released in a couple of weeks and now this. What a terrible loss.

    Re: Rest In Peace.

    I'd read in the paper Monday that he was very ill, and then someone texted me a few hours later saying he had died. As soon as I got home and checked online I found out those rumors had been circulating all that day. So had I not logged on and saw it on MSN I would never have believed it. I had just heard his publicist say a day or two ago that he was improving and expected to make it. this saddens me so deeply. Sure he was politically incorrect at times, and I'm sad that the Barack Obama campaign jokes may well be the last big public thing he's known for, especially by people who didn't follow his comedy, but he was a funny guy and better yet a man that managed to stay married to his lifelong sweetheart. Not many people can say that these days. Also the premise for the Bernie Mac show, he really did take his neices and nephew in, and that made him a good family man all around. He will surely be missed! R.I.P. Bernie.

    Yikes! That was a shock, but you can't convince me that his sarcoidosis didn't lead to his pneumonia. How very, very sad.

    Oh, I was hoping that this wasn't true! Bernie Mac was so funny and his sitcom was one of the better ones. One of the funniest things I've ever seen was Bernie in The Kings of Comedy. His routine about his nieces and nephew made me laugh so hard I nearly peed my pants.

    Oh, man. I didn't even know he'd been ill....and 50 is way too young. Another one of my favorite comedians gone.

    RIP, Bernie.

    Yahoo now has the news up - I'm just so sad to see him go. I had been praying he would make it through this. The man was not only a great comedian, but a truly good man and a great example to others. He will be greatly missed - and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family (the neices and nephew he raised especially).

    I didn't know until I just read it on Perez that he had Sarcoidosis.
    I too have a hard time believing that wasn't a factor.

    Same thing happened to me; that's why today I didn't believe it until I read the obit on the Chicago Tribune's website. It's so sad. I can't tell you how many times I've said I was going to "get some milk and coookies." He was a fantastic man, and I will miss him. Rest in peace, Bernie.
