I cannot believe that 2016 has now taken Debbie Reynolds as well – just the day after her daughter Carrie Fisher’s death. But a broken heart of a mother’s grief is perhaps the greatest sadness known to nature

Reynolds was a star in the original Hollywood firmament. And yet this moment is a stark reminder that the glow of celebrity does not shield those who live in the spotlight from the slings and arrows of life. May she rest in peace and may all those who knew and loved mother and daughter somehow find some eventual comfort in the memories of the lives of these two extraordinary women.

Life is fickle and death all of our eventual destination. We must try to do our part to take the moments given to us and cherish the love of those we hold close. I know for many the spinning of our heavens cannot give us 2017 soon enough.
