      May they all RIP,some had lived on this earth for a long time and a few for to short a period.
      George Michael is the one who I was most fond of and a big fan and admirer.
      We had a few friends around in early December and out came my collection of George Michael CD's( I still use a CD player- old fashioned I know). A few bad sing a longs and some great Laugh's. RIP George Michael.

      Some true inspirations, heroes and gifts to the world, Debbie Reynolds proving that you can die from a broken heart, which is truly heart breaking.

      2016 was a heart breaking year for sure,
      David Bowie, Prince, George Michael and Ali, true greats who I grew up with will be sorely missed.

      A horrible year, so many genuine legends.

      As sad as it all was, I had to smile at this...

      Every year we have legends passing and I celebrate them rather than mourn them and enjoy revisiting their glories, prime achievements, wisdoms (if they had any to offer) and learning more about them from the more researched obituaries. But its when they die young, that is when it is heartbreaking to fans. Every year has had such premature passings and every year I recall so many thinking its the worst. But this year really does seem the most heartbreaking for celebrities that died too young (ie early 60s or younger). It seems illogical to me as the average age for deaths today increases as we go forward. According to reported census, people are if living longer today which makes sense. Having said that, celebrities appear to be in a more hazardous environment to their general health by means of bad influences, excessive medical aids to deal with work pressures and pychological pressures of a world's attention, luxury eating lifestyles etc, so celebrity world environment appears to be less progressive for living to an average longer age than the rest of the ordinary public. At least by my perception to media reports. Or it really is just a freakily tragic year for the celebrity world and fans as it was for poor Anton Yelchin.

      Oh well. Heartbreaking as it is, I'll remember them with fondness and affection to those that I loved and with respect and increased knowledge to those I did not know well.

      RIP to all that has passed, good health to our living and to those whom will move on in 2017, may they do so with content of achievement and fulfilment in their lives.

      It was sad watching some of the Christmas programs there was an Audience with Ken Dodd and spotted a lot that were not with us and also A Morecambe and Wise Christmas show as well as them John Thaw, Mirian Montgomery, Bernie Nolan(The Nolan) and Kate O'Mara.
      Although not 2016 deaths was sad to see so many not with us now.

      Personally I'm heartbroken about David Bowie (I was stunned for weeks), Prince, H.G. Lewis (I actually cried wondering if he ever got a chance to see the Arrow BD set), Robert Vaughn (a childhood hero) and Leonard Cohen (I've only just began listening to You Want It Darker again as I was too upset).

      I hated 2016.

      Debbie Reynolds died one day after her daughter? I didn't think you could physically be in so much grief that you could die that quick. Maybe she was already weak somehow from old age..

      Debbie had several health problems in recent years but the death of Carrie would have take a massive toll on her.

      I think of all of them, Bowie's death affected me the most, he was such a huge part of my youth.

      for me George Micheal and George Martin were biggies, and Carrie and her mum dying within a day of each other was truly heartbreaking for their families, just reminds us all how fragile life is, and we should make the most of it, as you just never know

      A truly tragic year. However, we are fortunate that we will be able to remember many of them as they were, with the wonderful gifts they have left behind for us.

      Hi

      I think the passing of Carrie hit me the most, it's like part of my childhood died with her. One of my earliest memories was watching A New Hope with my sister at my local Odeon

      So so sad

      Good grief I didn't realise how many there were. Bowie is probably the most poignant for me, although I thought Anton Yelchin's passing was particularly tragic: so young and such a freak senseless death.

      RIP to all.

      Robert Vaughn was my big upset of the year, most of my childhood heroes have gone now I think only Sir Roger Moore (The Saint), left what a nice guy he is as well, please be kind to him 2017.
