Dying at such a young age is always tragic... :(


Mhmm, I think I only know her from this great song that I listened and danced to a lot some years ago:

This made me cry.


My Best friend died the same way (if it's confirmed it's because she had a heart attack). He had diabetes and well, he had a heart attack while in the shower. He was also young but, 13. So even having a heart attack at 32 wouldn't have surprised me. Almost anyone can get one.


You never know when it's going to happen when you have such a medical condition. I talked to Jamie the day before he had a heart attack and he seemed perfectly fine. Seemed that we were wrong.


Sad, things like this.

Much as I fear it may be drugs there are a lot of different reasons people die of heart attacks very young.


A cousin of mine -a total jock, very fit- had one during a casual game of pickup football. He was only about 25. At first they blamed an electrical problem in the heart (rare, impossible to detect before it happens, and not as uncommon as you might think). After the autopsy they found out that a virus had eaten away the lining of his heart. Total freak thing. Could have happened to anyone. :cry:


So until we knew more, who knows. Young heart attacks happen all the time.


My thoughts for her family. They will now be finding out a little piece of the definition of hell on earth I'm sure. :(


wtf is going on? Something funky's going on with all these big names dying.
Well in many of their cases, it's called consequences. They learn to think that their celebrity makes them immune to the downfalls of us mere mortals. And then it catches up with them. Beyond that, it's all a matter of odds. If there are X thousand major celebrities, proportionally so many of them are likely to have this happen, and so many to have that happen. It's part of life, and again, no one is immune.
