We have had numerous little tribute/goodbye threads to greats in many fields that have past on.

Here is a thread to consolidate them.

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Re: Anne Mccafferty dead at 85
So sad, her books have been a staple part of my life (and my childrens' lives) for decades.

Her son Todd has some big shoes to fill.

Re: SRe: What? now Debbie Reynolds
I think that too... supposedly her son reported that 15 minutes before the stroke she stated that she wanted to be with Carrie.
