    I’m still sad to Whitney Houston on this list and Don Cornelius and of course Natina Reed. I had no idea the guy from Green Mile died. I just know the years went by too quickly because I thought Yvette Wilson passed away in October. Maybe it was June 14 (a day before my B-day).

      Yeah, I still have a hard time believing it myself. I can only imagine how Bobbi Kris is feeling!
