Notable Deaths 2021

Postby angeldeb82 » Sun Jan 03, 2021 5:25 pm

We've been keeping track of notable deaths here since 2008, and it all started with Heath Ledger. Separate threads began to appear for new deaths, and I decided that they should all go into one thread, to be renewed each New Year's Day, so now we have thirteen years' worth of obits to look through. Here's Memory Lane.

It seems that JamesPolo and Female345 have been missing from these forums since a few months ago, and I kinda feel so alone in having to post the upcoming deaths. :( :cartmansad:
