During twelve months past the Grim Reaper made a harvest in Celeb Land. The list of singers and actors who fell to his scythe was truly astonishing. Allow me to mention JUST A FEW!
Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (mother/daughter) Zsa Zsa Gabor and Alan Rickman were among the actors.
George Mitchell, Prince, David Bowie, Merle Haggard. Leonard Cohen, Craig Stickland, Andrew Dorff, Phiff Dawg and Shannon Jones were only part of the tally whose voices shall be heard no more (excepting posthumously through their albums).
What struck me was the early age that many of these stars left their galaxy and also THE MANNER of their departure.
Some decided that, despite their regal life style, it was all too much and committed suicide. Others left under undisclosed circumstances which still remain cloaked in mystery. Still more suffered heart attacks, organ failure and strokes reflecting a life lived in the FAST LANE.
None escaped the inexorable blade of the Reaper, though several required that their bodies be frozen and kept stored until some one comes up with the secret of eternal life.
Which brings me to my point, a point that I have been making for the last fifty five years in various places and parts of the earth.
Someone HAS come up with the great secret of everlasting life and it is an open one.
Faced with the death of his friend Lazarus (John Chapter 11) Jesus said to Martha " I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE. HE THAT LIVES AND BELIEVES ON ME SHALL NEVER DIE."
His next words were "LAZARUS COME FORTH"
For the rest of the story you will have to read the Bible for yourselves.
