O my God!
O Thou forgiver of sins,
bestower of gifts,
dispeller of afflictions!

Verily, I beseech thee
to forgive the sins of such
as have abandoned the physical garment
and have ascended to the spiritual world.

O my Lord!
Purify them from trespasses,
dispel their sorrows,
and change their darkness into light.
Cause them to enter the garden of happiness,
cleanse them with the most pure water,
and grant them to behold Thy splendors
on the loftiest mount.

Abdu'l-Baha'
rest in peace

Sad tale but what next life? The only real next life is the one of rememberance.
Most famous and many infamous people are in their next life.
Look at all the media as proof. Even butt wipes like Hitler, Stalin, Alexander, etc, etc are always in the news, TV shows, movies, mags and books along with the good guys throughout history.
That is the only next life. If you want a next life you have to do something in this one that will make you remembered by family and friends and if fortunate the rest of the world for as long as possible.
Hopefully you will do something outstandingly good.

In rembrance of Dennis Hopper

Truer words were never spoken
In Easy Rider (1969) and today

"You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can't understand what's gone wrong with it.
Billy: Man, everybody got chicken, that's what happened. Hey, we can't even get into like, a second-rate hotel, I mean, a second-rate motel, you dig? They think we're gonna cut their throat or somethin'. They're scared, man.
George Hanson: They're not scared of you. They're scared of what you represent to 'em.
Billy: Hey, man. All we represent to them, man, is somebody who needs a haircut.
George Hanson: Oh, no. What you represent to them is freedom.
Billy: What the hell is wrong with freedom? That's what it's all about.
George Hanson: Oh, yeah, that's right. That's what's it's all about, all right. But talkin' about it and bein' it, that's two different things. I mean, it's real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don't ever tell anybody that they're not free,'cause then they're gonna get real busy killin' and maimin' to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they're gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em.
Billy: Well, it don't make 'em runnin' scared.
George Hanson: No, it makes 'em dangerous."

Strange, yes, but frequently things happen in 3's.

Rest in Peace and God Speed gentlemen!!!

For me every time I was Dennis Hopper, he reminded me of James Dean because they started their careers at the same time and were in early movies together, close in age etc. It made me wonder what Dean's career might have been and of their friendship. I am sure they will meet again on the other side of life.

True. It made me and my friends realize
why some people hated longhairs (us).
Funny thing, Dennis Hopper was a republican since Reagan but
gave that up because of his disgust with Sarah Palin.
Mr Hopper voted for Obama.

Hopper divorced every wife he ever married, for or five of them. Why wouldn't he divorce himself from his political parties as well?
He probably died in disgust with Obama's handling of the Gulf oil platform explosion and geyser. Weren't Obama's Chicago friend and book ghost author Bill Ayers and other pal Ted Kuzinski good at causing explosions? Hmmmmm.....

I guess it's "three" if you ignore Ronnie James Dio and the Grammy winning multi platinum bass player for Slipnot. I get five by my math.

Interracial marriages are crimes of genocide and there are international laws against genocide. If you know of a minister performing an interracial marriage, please report their criminal activity immediately. http://www.preventgenocide.org/

We are talking about 5 dead "celebrities", now you know!

If you have a method of counting that gives you another fantasy number so the "magic three" can happen for you, then enjoy.
