Angel of Death Hit Hard This Week

Wow, my heart was saddened to hear about the death of my cousin Lorraine “Cookie” Union Monday June 22, 2009. Followed by the death of Ed McMahon from the Johnny Carson Show Tuesday, June 23, 2009. Now today June 25, 2009 the death of two icons in the entertainment industry...Farrah Fawcett of Charlie’s Angel and Michael Jackson formerly of the Jackson 5.

May you all Rest In Peace.

Below is a picture I took of Michael Jackson when I spent a summer in California. My Uncle bought some of the best tickets in the arena for me and my cousins to see the Jackson 5 in Sun Valley…of course I was the teenager in 1975 with the best summer story after being that close to the Jackson 5. That is Michael behind Marlon :)

Hi there!

It is just sooo very hard to believe that Michael is gone...

My heart goes out to his children and to all of his siblings and his parents... I know this is just an incredibly sad time for them...

I will pray for their strength.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

Heaven's gate is very busy with all the new arrivals for sure. A friend of mine lost her 3-year old niece to cancer this week, too. It certainly puts my silly little stuff into perspective.

I talked about that night for years :)


I wish Michael had realized there was nothing wrong with his apperance. It was sad to see him butcher himself.

Hi Blackwomenblowthetrumpet, I too feel for his children.

Lazy Julie,

Sorry to hear about your friend three year old. Although she no longer have to suffer with cancer, I know it is heart breaking for the family that their angel was called home.
