2016 isn’t killing off our favorite celebrities, the cycle of life is. It happens that most of us (I am 46) are old enough now that the celebrities we grew up adoring are anywhere from a few years to a few decades older than us. It should come as no real surprise that they’re starting to leave the mortal world in increasingly large numbers. To be honest, I am surprised that it took until 2016 for them to start dying off in such large numbers, considering the lifestyles many of them lead and the poor choices many of them have made in regards to substance abuse. I’m not writing this to be a heartless jerk because I am sad that they’re gone. I’m writing this because I am a realist and folks, this is reality.
