Until We Meet Again - Those We Lost in 2012

♪♫ "Oh, i could hide 'neath the wings of the bluebird as she sings...." ♫♪

Ah, those eyes! That smile! Images of a teen heartthrob that will always stay with me.

♪♫ "...And for once in my life I'm alone,
and I've got to let her know just in time before I go."  ♫♪

That voice! That sweet grin! I can still remember the words to those iconic songs even in my sleep.

Gone too soon. All of them. I  believe they all still had so much more to contribute to this world. But for some unknown reason, God chose to take them home. I have to satisfy myself with feeling blessed that I had them in my life as long as I did and that their legacy lives on in the lyrics, the recordings, the films, the tapes, the stories, the sports and news archives.

Ladies and Gentlemen, my list:

Did you lose someone special in 2012? Was there a notable individual who impacted your life who passed away?

Jesus is waiting for you.


  1. no one big in 2012, thank heavens! but new years eve isnt the same with out dick clark!

  2. I lost my best friend, Andy, this year. I also lost 3 other aquaintances. There is no easy way to lose someone or to say goodbye, whether it is someone clos to you or someone whose work moved you in some way...

  3. I'm so sorry about Andy's passing, too, Suzi. I didn't know him as well as you did, but I still thought he was a super terrific guy and a good friend to those around him.
