Natural cause generally means old age, which I think is ridiculous that The Rev, who was 28 at the time of his death, would have died from that. But, that's the official ruling of the paramedics.

Brittany Murphy, the funny and cute actress, died recently of heart failure. She will be sorely missed by me and I'm sure many others.

It's actually kind of unnerving how most people die painfully due to health problems, instead of just passing away of natural causes. Looks like most of us will see a hospital bed whether we want to or not...

It's what I do!

...But seriously, it's not for a looooong time, so don't worry about it. Besides, if you have lead a happy and full life, the ending is meaningless, as life itself has much more significance.

No, I don't think that's his name anyways, he's the guy who invented the electric guitar.

Alicia De Larrocha, a master of classical Spanish piano music, died September 25 at the ripe old age of 86. She will be sorely missed throughout the classical music world.

Brain cells also generally don't do this, I believe, so once enough of those have died your brain just doesn't work anymore.

OK, seriously, nobody liked Billy Mays, and personally, I can't stand any of Michael Jackson's music. Or his face. And I don't know how to quote.

Michael Jackson was, in my opinion, an awful person, someone who was born with a lot of talent and potential and wasted it. Billy Mays was very cool, especially if you've ever heard him speak in a normal voice. Plus, he knew how to get people's attention. Can't say I wasn't utterly dumbstruck when I heard they had died.
