Let's not forget the soldiers who have perished in the Iraqi and Afghan wars. I really don't thinks these men and women get the recognition they deserve for serving their country.

Bobby Bonds died of cancer, if I'm not mistaken.

Other famous sports figures to die;

Herb Brooks, coach of the 1980 Olympic Team
Ken Coleman, former Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Browns broadcaster
Dave DeBusscher, Knicks Hall of Famer
Larry Doby, the first black in the American League with the Tribe
Althea Gibson, tennis pioneer
Sid Gillman, one of the great football coaches of all time
Will McDonough, sports columnist
Durwood Merrill, who was a very good major league Umpire
Ronnie Shanklin, a former Pro Bowl WR with the Steelers
Tex Schramm, fomer Cowboys GM
Dan Snyder, Thrashers Center

"Hope Lange"

My God, I didn't know 'Mrs. Muir' was gone and I read the Entertainment Weekly 'Farewell' special article. She must be in there somewhere. By the way, is 'The Ghost' (and Knight Rider's Devon), Edward Mulhare still with us? I can't remember. L-188, this is a pretty morbid thread, not that a lot of the other ones on the forum now aren't also. But it was nice of you to pay tribute to all of these wonderful folk and as Airplay said, let's not forget the unsung heroes who died in battle for us. Sorry if my comments seem to be mocking; NOT the case!

Another more recent one is former Blackhawks player and coach Keith Magnuson, who like Herb Brooks and Dan Snyder, was killed in a car crash.

I know this is easy to forget because it seems like it was more than a year ago.

These seven astronauts died on February 1, 2003 aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia.

Let's not also forget Robert Palmer. I was listening to "Simply Irresistable" last night, and I thought about all these fine people who are simply irreplacable.
Hope Lange...I was dumbfounded when I heard we lost her too. I remember her in the "The Ghost & Mrs Muir". She was a hottie too! And we did lose Edward Mulhare some years ago too. May they all rest in peace.
