+Kate Maloney I never knew he had marfans. I was diagnosed with marfans syndrome in 1995. I was 19. I had to stop playing sports and nothing strenous. My daughter has the elongated fingers, curvature in her spine, and webbed fingers. We both are checked up on yearly..

You didn't mention the death of Jean Cooper's Katherine Chancellor of Young and the Restless. They chose to have the character pass after the death of the actress who portrayed her, Jean Cooper. Jean portrayed this iconic matriarch of Chancellor Industries for nearly 40 years. According to Wikipedia, her final Y&R scene was filmed Tuesday, March 26, 2013 (the exact date of Y&R's 40th anniversary) and aired on Friday, May 3, 2013. Jean Cooper passed away on May 8, 2013

If you put the closed captioning on it replaced die, dead, and death the word pass or passed. Strange, especially when the word die is in the subject.

Would appreciate closed captions being accurate. Someone thinks dead or died is a bad word and substitutes pass or passed . I can hear but I use them because of a low volume device. I think the deaf community deserves to see the words actually spoken. Down vote for this. There's a cadre of CC people who are offended by light swear words in films, i.e. damn, and they always censor or change it. It doesn't affect my enjoyment that much but is highly annoying and is subjecting a whole swath of deaf and HOH folks to what amounts to censorship.

Death is not the end. It is a stepping stone into Eternal life for people that believe. God wants to help us. God isn't into hurting us. God loves us all. God created heaven to help us have Eternal life where we can live forever without any kind of sickness.

Coach. Though Woody Harrelson had some big shoes to fill, and did a fantastic job, Cheers just wasn't the same without Coach. Also, many people might not remember this old series, but when Bea Benedaret from "Petticoat Junction" died from cancer, the show went on successfully for two more seasons. But it was never the same without matriarch Kate Bradley. Oddly, they never mentioned or dealt with her passing. When she temporarily left the show during cancer treatments, they had a story line where Kate was called out of town to care for a sick relative. The cancer went into remission, and Kate Bradley returned to the Shady Rest. However, the cancer returned after she filmed a few episodes of the 6th season, and Kate just simply disappreared.

Who the hell wrote the subtitles? They couldn't bring themselves to write 'death' and 'died' and put 'passing' and 'passed' instead. 2:09, 9:44, 9:46 at least. On a video clip ABOUT death they still felt the need for euphemism. Mealy-mouthed idiots.

I am grateful to say that I am a born again Christian and have been since I was 19.......folks life is full of uncertainties and unexpected moments! if you don’t know Christ as your savior then it burdens my soul to think that you are headed for a terrible place called Hell where the Bible says the fire is never quenched and the worm dies not! Folks you are not promised tomorrow! If you want to know how to be saved from this horrible reality then please by all means don’t hesitate to comment right back so I can lead you to the savior! 2 Corinthians 6:2 clearly states “now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation!” And Hebrews 3:15 clearly states, “Today if you hear his voice don’t harden your hearts! It is not me but the Holy Spirit that I pray reveals to you the truth of his precious gospel......John 3:16 says for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whoever believes on him will not perish but have everlasting life! V 17 says then V 18 says whoever believes on the son is not condemned but whoever does not believe on the son is condemned already because he has not believed on the son whom God has sent! Also Acts 16:30-31 what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house I am not threatening anyone but just warning them what will happen if they reject this precious gift of eternal life! Christ died a horrible criminals death! He was beaten brutally mocked spit upon and endured countless hours of torture pain for all of our sins! Ppl go to hell because they reject that pardon for their sins! And Jesus is saying to them in Matthew 25:41 depart from me you cursed into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels! Hell was only prepared for Satan and his angels! It is not God who threatens anyone it is the craziness of rejecting the free pardon of salvation! It’s like if you’re in court you’ve committed a crime say you murdered someone! Now if you say to that Judge hey I know I’ve done a terrible thing of murdering that person but I hear you’re a good judge and so I know you’ll be fair to me...... the judge is going to reply well yes you’re right about one thing I am a good judge and because I’m a good judge I’m going to see to it that you’re punished and that justice is served! Well then all of a sudden someone you don’t even know comes forward and says you know what I know he’s committed the crime he’s committed and he deserves to go to jail but I really don’t want to see him go to prison so I’ll just go to prison for him so he can go free! So if you accepted that offer you’d be free to leave the courtroom but if you didn’t well you’d be crazy and go to prison yourself! Well that’s exactly how it was 2,000 years ago! He is God in human flesh and he came to this earth lived a perfect sinless life and even though he knew that we had sinned and because of our sins deserved to die miserably but he said no I don’t want to see them suffer so I will go and take their punishment for them! Even though he did absolutely nothing wrong still he chose to take the punishment for our sins so we can be set free from the power bondages and consequences of our disobedience to God! Romans 5:8 says For God commends his love toward us that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us! 1 John 2:2 says he was made to be the propitiation for our sins! And not just for our sins but the sins of the whole world! 2 Corinthians 5:21 He who knew no sin became Sin for us that we would be made his righteousness! The truth is if you had to get to Heaven by your own effort then you cannot do it! Because Romans 3:10 says there is not one that does good! No Not One! Romans 3:23 says For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God! Romans 6:23 says For the wages of sin is death! But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our lord! But the good news is Romans 10:9 If we confess with our mouth and believes in our hearts that Christ died for our sins then was raised from the dead we will be saved! V 10 For it’s with the heart we believe and it’s with the mouth confession is made unto salvation! God gave us 10 commandments to follow and we’ve broken every one of them! And because God is a good God he cannot allow our disobedience to him to go unpunished! Well then like I just mentioned above his son Jesus stepped forward and said no I don’t want to see them punished so I will take their punishment for them! And also like I said he died a terrible substitute criminal’s death for us on a cross so now all we have to do is accept that payment for our sins and we can escape the terrible wrath of God that is to fall on them who do not accept this atonement that was sacrificed for our sins! Praise the lord Romans 10:13 says Whoever calls on the name of the lord shall be saved! And 1 Peter 1:4 you’re an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you! Christ clearly said in John 14:6 I am the way the truth and the life and no one comes to the father but through me! Acts 4:12 clearly states that there is no other name given unto Heaven or earth by which we must be saved as there is salvation in no other! Jesus clearly states that there is clearly only one way to Salvation and it’s him that’s it! There is no other way! God Bless everyone who reads!

No mention of Lional Hutz or Troy McLure? Hartman voiced them both. They may not be acknowlaged dead in series, but he's still dead and they've been gone like 20 years. And also, 8 Simple rules, the void was filled with two characters, the grandfather and a cousin.

Death. Where will you spend your eternity? Those who know and love Jesus Christ will live forever in Christ. Those who reject Christ will live in eternity without Him in hell. Hell is the last stop of human depravity. Think of how wicked people can be! Will you spend eternity in suffering or with the God Who made you for friendship with Him? I love God. I hope you will get to know Him too! Jesus Christ is the light of the world. Amen!

Wow. Most of these actors I had passing knowledge of but their shows weren't in my circle of viewing. So when I learned of their passing, I was, obviously, saddened even though it was long afterwards in some cases. Regardless, it is a shame that such talented people died at such relatively young ages. It goes to show that EACH of us should come to terms with our OWN mortality. NONE of us live forever. For the most part few of us truly KNOW when we are going to meet our Maker. So get right with the world and get RIGHT with both yourself, your Lived ones and your Lord and Maker! RIP to all these fine actors and people. Your passing leaves voids unfilled for your fans. You will be missed and remembered. God Bless you ALL!

Michael Conrad played Sgt Phil Esterhaus on 'Hill Street Blues'. Conrad knew he was dying, and requested that after he was gone his character die of a sudden heart attack while in bed with his girlfriend. The episode was bittersweet in that it had the cast speculating about their beloved desk sergeant's passing, because nobody knew for certain what really happened. When it came out the rumor was true...well, it was a great episode.

Don Davis on Stargate (General Hammond) he wasn't actually still filming at the time since they had moved his character off screen, but they did acknowledge his passing by naming a ship after his character.
