When Ed McMahon passed away earlier this week, I was a little sad. My memories of him are from Star Search on Saturday afternoons in the living room at my Grandma's house. I'm sure the financial stress wasn't easy on him these past few years after working for so much of his life.
We were eating dinner at our favorite Mexican joint when I noticed TMZ post Farrah had passed away. I wanted to cry. I
After we got home, I promptly crawled into bed because I was feeling really bad. My body hasn't been very nice to me lately. NYEBoy woke me up a few hours later to tell me Michael Jackson had died. I thought he was joking at first, but he wasn't. I don't have any memories of doing the moonwalk down the street or wearing the white glove while grabbing my crotch and screaming "HEHE!", but I do have a few favorite songs.
I'm not sure why, but I've always loved this song. Maybe it's his young voice.
I've always loved this Superbowl halftime show.
Which of course means, I'm going to love this song. Wouldn't it be kick ass to see some singers from today come together to do a remake?
Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson, you will each be missed. Each of your families will be in my prayers. My heart is especially with the children who have lost their parents. I pray for Redmond who hasn't been able to be with his mother during her dying days. I pray for Michael Jackson's children. I'm not sure where the best place for them to be is, but I hope put their best interest at heart, money and fame aside.
What are your favorite memories?
