THE FINAL CURTAIN

2010 In Memorium.
As we approach the end of the year, here's a nice little tribute to the famous folk who left this world in 2010. From the familiar faces, to those who might even surprise or shock to see who've shuffled off this mortal coil so early. 2010 has been a tough year for us personally, after losing our own loved ones, our Grandmother and best friend of twelve years Jimmy. As I'm sure others have too. Rest In Peace. Hold that thought...
