Just what is up with the world lately?

In the past ten days, we have lost five, count it, five, well-known people. Okay, a couple might not be well known, but I'm still left reeling by today's announcement.

Glenn Frey, of the Eagles fame, passed away. Not from cancer though. According to the Eagles website, it was rheumatoid arthritis, pneumonia and acute ulcerative colitis.

I just ... I can't believe it.

The world lost:

David Bowie - cancer
Alan Rickman - cancer
Rene Angelil - cancer (Celine Dion's husband, and yes, I do like her singing, so there)
Dan Haggerty - cancer (Grizzly Adams, which I vaguely remember from childhood)
Now Glenn Frey.

Cancer is an evil, evil disease, and that's all I have to say about that.

RIP David, Alan, Rene, Dan and Glenn. Your contributions to the world did not go unnoticed.

It's all a lot to take in. I'm still reeling from Bowie and Rickman; the others haven't even registered.

Cancer sucks, big time. :-(

Yeah, I know what you mean. It was a mad scramble at work, especially when it was announced Bowie had gone. It was kind of surreal too, like, omg, is this real?
