R.I.P. Heath Ledger

Unless you aren't of this world, most of you probably heard that Heath Ledger died today at the ripe old age of 28. His little girl, Mathilda, is going to grow up without her daddy. With all the stupid stuff that is going on in the world, this death has saddened me the most. My husband is 28, also. We have 3 children. I do not know what I would do if I did not have him here with me, helping me, loving me. And my loss would be nothing compared to what my children would be going without. We are their world. He is DADDY, the man that is larger than life and who they compare to Superman. I honestly tear up when I think of that poor little girl that will never know her father. All she will know will be second hand information. She is still too little to remember the walks to the park or any games they may have played. Yes, there are tons of pictures on the internet that we have all seen, and I'm sure there are many more personal pictures from his ex, Michelle Williams, along with his family. But that isn't the same. Not even close. You can't feel a pictures arms around you, or hear it say "I love you". My heart goes out to his daughter and family.

Sad, sad, sad.

He had so much talent. Overdose? Why the fuck did he have to overdo the drugs!!

I was completely SHOCKED when I read about this. It makes me wonder what went through his mind. He wasn't acting out prior to his death, showing he had struggles. It makes me very sad how easily a person can be lost to us.

I was sick over this, my daughter is also two years old and when I think about how much they love their daddies at this tender age I really can't imagine anything more tragic.
