That's a drag.

I didn't hear it on local news yet, pretty surprised to find it here. Thanks for saying something.

I understand...

Some people believe it to be rumor, but Yahoo News and CNN are reporting it. I don't think anyone has given a statement with exact time of death yet.

That's sad

I told a friend when he first went into the hospital a couple of weeks ago, that he'd never make it out. They've been saying that his Sarcoidosis didn't have anything to do with it, but there is probably something else in addition to the pneumonia, whether the sarcoidosis, a blood clot, heart issues, etc...

We've lost a great comedian.

I imagine so...

It stated complications from Pnenumonia. I am not sure what happened exactly, but in the scheme of things, it doesn't really matter.
He got sick, and passed away.

Bumped into him once...

...at a White Sox game. Couldn't have been a nicer guy.

He and George Carlin are probably putting them in stitches in the big Improv in the sky!!

I was totally depressed

by cmiller5400 In reply to Bernie Mac - Dies @ age 5 ...

I was totally depressed when I heard that. I loved his show.

He will be sorely missed by many. Just imagine if we had these people still around with us today; just to name a few:

John Candy (March 1994)
Chris Farley (December 1997)
John Belushi (March 1982)

That is sad

Also quite young. Was he fighting an illness or something?
