The Loss of a Legend

On the 10th we lost an iconic singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter and actor, David Bowie!

I have “loved” David Bowie my whole life it seems. My daughter an I both cried when she came into the room and told me the news. We discussed how weird it was that a man can make such an impact on our lives yet we didn’t actually  know him.

I can’t imagine the music world without him. Or movie land with out Jareth, the king of the goblins.

Prayers for his wife of 24 years, Iman, his two children, his family,  friends and fans.

If you haven’t listened to him, sit down and try it. You’ll be amazed. He’s music is so diverse you will find something you like.

Goodbye Mr. Spock

Yesterday we lost a great actor, Leonard Nemoy.

tribute from space After reading and watching some old interviews of Mr. Nimoy I was reminded of just what a wonder man he truly was. I loved watching him tell of him as a small child seeing the hand jester that would one day be his iconic Vulcan ‘live long and prosper’ jester as Mr. Spock and laugh at how so many copying it through history not knowing they were offering a ‘blessing

Leonard Nimoy was more than Mr. Spock. But Mr. Spock is his gift to us all. Live long and prosper. HANX.

You really did live long and prosper, and we were all the richer for it.

Just to list a few!

In the famous words of James T. Kirk:

“We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human.” Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)

The sports world woke this morning to the news that longtime anchor at ESPN, Stuart Scott, had died Sunday morning at the age of 49. He had been courageously battling cancer since 2007.Scott talked about his fight with cancer in a moving speech at the 2014 ESPYs.

Scott is survived by his two daughters, Taelor, 19, and Sydni, 15; his parents, O. Ray and Jacqueline Scott; and his three siblings Stephen Scott, Synthia Kearney, Susan Scott and their families. His girlfriend, Kristin Spodobalski, was with Stuart and cared for him every step of the way and along with support from his loving family, close friends iand colleagues, he went through several surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation and clinical trials to stay strong and ward off cancer for as long as humanly possible.

I enjoyed watching Stuart work very much. He made stats and recaps fun! Thanks Stuart Scott! You will be greatly missed.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and coworkers.

Last night we (the people of the world) lost another great actor and man! He brought such happiness and joy to so many it’s sad that he didn’t feel the same joy he gave to us!

Robin Williams was in many great movies! Some to bring out the kid in each of us. Some to bring out a noble gesture. Some even brought us fear! He was able to each so well.
