Bernie Mac 1957-2008


I just heard about the passing of Chicago comedian Bernie Mac. He was admitted to Northwestern hospital in Chicago last week and died early this morning due to complications arising from pneumonia, his publicist said.
I am very sad.



C'mon America, we will miss Bernie so much.

Hello there! {waves}

It is so very sad that Bernie passed on... a young man who was still attempting to branch out into new avenues professionally... he will be deeply missed....

He added a lot to the comedy circuit and many comics who came after him were imitators...

I do hope that he is resting with God...

Thank you for mentioning him with respect and admiration...

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
Lisa

So very sad, he was so young. I feel like crying but everytime I think of Bernie, I can't help but smile. What a great gift to leave.

Sad, sad news. I thought he was really funny. What a shock. I actually never thought of him as 50 years old.

Terrible shame.
