2014 Remembrance Thread

Some awesome people died this year and I guess 2014 had to take one more before it was all over.

Christine Cavanaugh, voice of Chuckie on Rugrats, Dexter on Dexter's Lab, Babe the Pig, Marty Sherman on the Critic, Gosalyn Waddlemeyer-Mallard on Darkwing Duck, etc...died at 51.

Apparently she died on the 22nd for unannounced reasons.

This year has been SHITTY for celebrity deaths.

Robin Williams
Joan Rivers
Casey Casem
Joe Cocker
Larry Hagman
Oscar Taveras
Norman Bridwell
Jimmy Ruffin
Wayne Static
Jack Bruce
Oscar De La Renta
Jan Hooks
Richard Kiel
Richard Attenborough
Lauren Bacall
Elaine Stritch
Tommy Ramone
Paul Mazursky
Rik Mayall
Ann B. Davis
Maya Angelou
Bob Hoskins
Rubin Carter
Peaches Geldof
Mickey Rooney
John Pinette
James Rebhorn
Harold Ramis
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Mae Young
Phil Everly
James Avery
Paul Walker


This is not a comprehensive list but it runs through a lot of it. This was just a terrible year for deaths and as I get older I feel more and more celebrities that I love are going to die.

Some of these people lived good and full lives, and some of them were taken too soon. With one more day left in 2014, let's hope this year is done taking people from us.

Instead of mourning these great people let's remember them for what made them great.

    I watched Good Will Hunting yesterday, just because it was a good movie

    For someone who had a tendency to be cast in comedic roles, dude had a lot of range

    Robin Williams was the best. I actually liked him more in his dramatic roles than in his comedy roles.

    My grandmother died about a month ago.

    She was 94 and in good health and spirits until a fall broke her hip and she didn't recover from the surgery.

    I'm thousands of miles away and my mum informed me via facebook private message, first that she'd fallen and was heading in for surgery, then the next day that she was gone.

    The whole thing is so disorienting. I've spoken to my family half a dozen times in the past couple of weeks for christmas etc, but I still don't really know how to feel about it. I wasn't super close with this grandmother, and I know if it was my maternal grandmother, I'd be booking a flight as soon as I heard she was hurt, but it's still a super jarring experience and I don't think I've had any opportunity to grieve at all.

    2014 was one of my all time top 5 years.

    I got married this year.

    2011 was my worst year and a year would have to work pretty goddamn hard to beat it.

    2013 for me. That would be a tough one to beat for bad years.

    I watched Mrs. Doubtfire last week. I love that movie, I used to watch with my dad all the time.

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    I lost one of my best friends to suicide this year.

    Aside from that, this year has been largely uneventful.

    I'm not sure 2014 was a terrible year so much as a ton of things that make every year terrible were finally brought out into the mainstream public's eye and we had to have endless conversations about them. That in and of itself becomes unbearable but how much better might things get now that we've been forced to confront so much ugliness? I'm not exactly an optimist but I wonder whether things can start to get better now that we've begun to acknowledge some awful truths.

    Seriously dudes and dudettes, don't ever put your friends and family through the ringer by going and killing yourselves.
    Talk to people, seek counseling, call the suicide prevention hotline, whatever it takes. Just don't put your friends through that.

    That's what I'm taking away from this year.

    My Dad attempted suicide a few times later in life but never succeeded.

    Unless you count the fact that he refused to stop drinking and doing drugs until they killed him.

    Anybody that followed the chronic illness thread knows that my grandma died on Dec. 2nd. She had a long battle with cancer. We were extremely close, I lived with my grandparents for a couple of years.

    2015 can start at any time, thanks.

    excellent things happened this year too, guys

    please don't lose sight of that in here

    it's one thing to acknowledge people who've been lost or the tragedies and atrocities, and of course it's okay to feel sad about those things

    but don't you dare focus in on that stuff only and forget the awesome things that have happened to each and every single one of you goddamn beautiful people

    this year largely sucked for me

    one of my worst years ever

    I'm not gonna paint it as anything positive

    because it would be bullshit

    at least 2015 is in position to be easily better, for me

    Robin William's death hit me harder than any celebrity. I made jokes to make people laugh because my self esteem was so shitty that I needed people to think I am funny to like me.

    To know he committed suicide after decades long battle of depression, that just hit too close to home. That could have been me. I'm really glad it wasn't. I just wish that Robin Williams was able to continue the fight a little while longer.

    Coincidentally, my dog ran away more times this year than any other! Thankfully, she has made it back each time so far.
    Also she killed more possums this year than the last two years combined.
