Farewell to Ed, Farrah and Michael

It's been a sad week in entertainment. We lost Ed "Heeeeeere's Johnny!" McMahon, age 86 on Tuesday the 23rd, 2009 due to numerous health problems. (Pneumonia, possible bone cancer, etc.)

Here's an Ed McMahon tribute from CBS.

Today, Thursday the 25th, Farrah Fawcett, age 62, lost her lengthy battle with cancer. I'm thankful that towards the end of her treatment and suffering, she decided to share with the public and remind us again how much a problem cancer continues to be.

If losing one celebrity today wasn't bad enough, there was the sudden passing of pop icon Michael Jackson, age 50. He was much too young, but had health issues and so much instability in his life.

Details continue to unfold about Michael Jackson's death. Questions still remain whether this is a publicity stunt, where his doctor is, how that same doctor possibly enabled Michael to continue a pain medication habit. Perhaps even giving him a dose of Demerol (a narcotic painkiller similar to that of Morphine) that was too high. This is all speculation of course, and we'll know more once the coroners complete the autopsy and extensive toxicology tests.

These videos are how I choose to remember Michael Jackson.

Thriller is probably one of the best videos that Michael has done, aside from "Black & White". (Embedding is disabled, so you'll have to visit the link.)

Sadly, Farrah's courageous battle with cancer seems overshadowed by all the drama swirling around about Michael Jackson. Each one of these people brought something special to entertainment, and they should all be remembered for the good they did. Remember they were human, and made mistakes just as we all do. It doesn't matter how big or small those mistakes were in our eyes – we aren't the ones who determine what happens.

I hope each one of them has found peace, and I pray their families can as well.
