Two top athletes and two singing legends have gone home to be with their Lord. Mr. Hockey died Friday at the age of 88. News of Gordie Howe’s passing shocked the hockey world and beyond. Muhammad Ali’s death came as a shock in the boxing world and yes, beyond too. Then there were the untimely deaths of Prince and Bobby Curtola.
The above four were literally household names in the sports and entertainment world. One had the feeling we knew each of them personally since they were human beings who had made a difference and we loved and respected them.
Now that they are gone we are left with just memories, but fond memories they are. And so as their families, relatives, friends, associates and fans mourn their loss we are left with the knowledge that they did their very best here on earth and they never will be forgotten.
