Rest In Peace Bernie!
Im posting an article from Yahoo news about the untimely death of 50 year old Bernie Mac, in my opinion was the funniest comedian alive. My family will miss his hilarious stories....Not JOKES that he told on his Kings of comedy tours and his presence in the movies he was in.
Mac died Saturday morning from complications due to pneumonia in a Chicago area hospital, his publicist, Danica Smith, said in a statement from Los Angeles. She said no other details were available.
"This is a very sad day for many of us who knew and loved Bernie," said Don Cheadle, a member of the "Oceans" gang. "He brought so much joy to so many. He will be missed but heaven just got funnier."
Mac suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease that produces tiny lumps of cells in the body's organs, but had said the condition went into remission in 2005. He recently was hospitalized and treated for pneumonia, which his publicist said was not related to the disease.
