Bernie Mac has passed away

Comedian and actor Bernie Mac has passed away from pneumonia complications at age 50.

That's one bit of news that I sure wasn't anticipating.

A very funny and talented person. And seemed like way too nice a guy to leave us at a pretty young age.

I thought his television show was pretty good and always had a good moral at the end. His work in Ocean's Eleven and its sequels was terrific. And there was Transformers of course: his portrayal of used-car dealer Bobby Bolivia was uproariosly funny!

Thoughts and prayers going out to his family today.

I am shocked. Shocked. I didn't know that a person in the U.S. could die of pneumonia at his age nowadays. Especially a person with his resources.

I always enjoyed when BM was in a film, but never actively sought him out. Still, I am sorry to hear of someone dying at such a relatively young age, especially when they are a person who has the possibility to really make a difference.

My prayers are going out today to his family, that they'll know His comfort - that they'll know Him.

Wow shocking news. I loved him in the Ocean's films.

He had sarcoidosis, which made him highly susceptible to tissue inflammation (esp. in the lungs, which is where his pneumonia apparently settled).

Pity, he always seemed like a decent person.
