A terrible shame

I'm sure by now many of you have heard of the death of the young actor Heath Ledger.  He was in the Patriot and Brokeback Mountain as well as other films.  He was only 28 and died yesterday of an apparent drug overdose.  It is such a shame that a brilliant life is stuffed out like that.  I wonder if it was suicide or an accident?  It is a shame when anyone dies under these circumstances.  May God Bless his soul....

Dear Linda,

I didn't believe the news when I heard it on the radio this morning.  But now I see it written in front of me, it makes it seems real.  He was only 28, it's so sad, because he had his life mapped out in front of him.

OH I know it is a shame...from what I keep hearing on the tv it was an accident but that is still speculation.  They are talking about two different sleeping pills he took and he shouldn't have mixed them I guess and it just caused him to fall into a deep sleep and stopped his heart.  I guess that would be the way to go if it was your time. He was also suffering from pneumonia so that couldn't have helped at all!  Still very sad and my favorite movie of his was "10 things I hate about you"  He was such a great actor!

He was a gorgeous man, didn't know too much about him until I heard of his passing.  What a shame.
