  1. Debbie was one of the nicest, kindest persons who existed in Hollywood. The only person I can think of as similar was Marlene Dietrich.
    Shalom and rest in peace.

  2. It’s weird.
    Today I was thinking about Debbie Reynolds, and wondering if she was still alive.
    Was going to Google her, but I was visiting people and didn’t get to it.
    Very sad.

  3. “Parents are not supposed to outlive their children,” as told to me by my late partner’s father.

    May she rest in peace. She gave us hours & hours of truly wholesome entertainment that any member of the family could watch.

  4. As a friend (and former drug addict) noted, Carrie Fisher had recently started using again. George Michael was certainly using. Prince had drug problems, whether they were prescribed or not. Drug deaths are skyrocketing, and that is a significant reason why we are seeing more deaths.
    No explanation can be given for Keith Richards though.

  5. Had a feeling this might happen. Grief can take such an awful toll. Praying for the family’s protection and the peace of God by His mercy and grace.

  6. “No explanation can be given for Keith Richards though.”
    Full illegal blood transfusion. Get with the (ancient) times, dude.

  7. The stress and pain of losing a loved one can cause terrible things.
    Rest well with your daughter lovely lady.



  8. One of my favorite musicals is Singing In The Rain, my oldest daughter and I went to a rare theater showing of it in the early 2000’s. When the movie was over the audience was actually clapping and cheering the performance, it was a good time spent with my daughter watching a truly great movie.
