    Unhappy

    What a tragedy. My favorite was "We are Family".
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    How sad. God Bless her. She was so young.

    I always loved the Pointer Sisters. I used to sing their songs when I was little. My favorite was "He's so shy" or is it "He's so fine"? I can't remember.

    "We Are Family" was by Sister Sledge, not the Pointer Sisters.

    It is so sad. I can't believe how many performers
    who have given us so much enjoyment are passing lately. And 52. Way too young.

    They had so many great hits and I loved them in the movie " Car Wash" with Richard Pryor.

    I feel bad for her sisters. Since she is the youngest they probably think of her as the "baby".

    I am watching Entertainment Tonight and they just aired an interview with her they did in 2000. She was a crack addict - had lost everything. I didn't know that. Sad interview. She was 50 days straight at that time. Last year she was arrested and charged with felony drug possession.

    Very sad....

    Thanks, Jules. I was wondering if it was the one that had drug problems.
