2016 has not been good for aging rockers and actors

People age every day. We all succumb to moments of terror regarding this fact.

Just as we all have special music, places, times and celebrities that we all can associate with moments that we cherish in this life. So, when the people associated with one of these events, in one way or another, die, we all feel as though a part of us is slipping away, too. I know I feel this way, and I have definitely spoken to some of my clients about this matter. By understanding, I can help show my clients once again that With Age Comes Respect.

Some of the individuals that have been significant ‘famous-wise’ that have died in the first 20 days of 2016 include:

On January 6th, David Bowie lost his 18-month battle with cancer. As many of us are aware, Bowie was a legendary musician whose music was important to many of us growing up. Bowie was also a film star and he appeared on Broadway. As a tribute, his final album was released two days after this great rocker passed.

Celene Dion’s husband and ex-manager, René Angélil, passed away on January 14th after his battle with cancer. He was only 73-years old. Previously to managing his wife, he was also a singer that thrilled the masses. He will be greatly missed by his wife and three children with Dion and his three other children from previous relationships.

Alan Rickman, who many of us are most familiar with in his role of Professor Snape in the Harry Potter series. He is also famous for his many other film roles. He also directed and was a stage actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The latest is Glenn Frey who passed away two days ago. Frey was the founding member of the Eagles (a big favorite of mine!). Unfortunately this superstar died from several ailments, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.

I can’t tell you how much these people have touched my life. I will miss them as will many of my clients. By mourning together, we will help one another.
