The Loss of 2016

If nothing else, this year will go down as one of the worst for
losing well known and loved celebrities, artists, and actors.
It has just been announced of the death of
Carrie Fisher,
the last few days have seen the passing of
Liz Smith, George Michael, and Rick Parfitt.

At the beginning of the year, the world was shocked at the death of
David Bowie.

Shortly thereafter,
Terry Wogan and
Alan Rickman followed.

I cannot list them all, but here are just a few of the well known faces
that made up a part of my life simply by being there on the big screen.

Paul Daniels
Glenn Frey
Victoria Wood
Andrew Sachs
Ronnie Corbett
Dan Haggerty
Gene Wilder
Mohammed Ali
Nancy Reagan
Carla Lane
Caroline Aherne
Jean Alexander
Jimmy Young
Robert Vaughn
Leonard Cohen
Greg Lake
Zsa Zsa Gabor
Peter Vaughan

Thank you for your talent, adaptations, humour and wonder.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    2016 seems to have had more celebrity deaths than usual, and keeps claiming lives right up to the end. 😦
    As you say, these are people we loved even if we never met them.
