I’ve been trying to not be resentful of Dick Clark the last few days. ‘Cause it isn’t fair to him. But I can’t help how I feel. It’s like his death has overshadowed hers, and that makes me mad.

    Janice Coppi A famous person passing will always be wide spread news for a day or so, but in the end we move on. When someone close to you passes there is pain and sadness for much longer, but we carry them in hearts and mind forever. *hugs*

    Lisa Marie Treece Sorry Jennifer. I understand how you feel in a way. Like Janice said- when a famous person dies it seems like everyone in the world cares. Yet when someone we know personally and was an amazing person passes away, it seems like the world doesn’t even take notice. *hugs tight*
