Seventies Soulchild: Hello HistoryBuff. 12:20 and you're the only one on chat?
HistoryBuff: Hey Seventies. Yep, that's why I hung around. So how are you?
Seventies Soulchild: Doing well. Sad to hear about Don Cornelious today. What a shocker!
HistoryBuff: I hadn't heard.
Seventies Soulchild: Oh yes, the police found him yesterday at home. Gunshot to the head. The authorities suspect suicide.
HistoryBuff: Oh! I am so sorry to hear that.
Seventies Soulchild: Me too.
HistoryBuff: He had a lot a history to share.
Seventies Soulchild: Absolutely.
HistoryBuff: Sounds like the same road Vesta Williams went down.
Seventies Soulchild: Not quite sure of the comparison here. How so?
HistoryBuff: I hate tragic deaths. Particularly of someone who had a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer. Alledgedly she died at her own hands.
Seventies Soulchild: No she died of heart failure. She had an enlarged heart due to cocaine use for several years. Although she had stopped using over 20 years ago.
HistoryBuff: I see. I was mistaken. It did surface as an early rumor. But I do understand, Phillis Hyman committed suicide.
Seventies Soulchild: Yes Phyllis Hyman did commit suicide. She was bi-polar
HistoryBuff: Oh my goodness. I was not aware of that either. In any case, I will personally miss all three of them. Typically, I wonder what lead to such an end?
Seventies Soulchild: They say that he was having health issues, not unusual for someone his age.
HistoryBuff: Right. He was in his seventies? 75 yrs.
Seventies Soulchild: yes 75
HistoryBuff: Amazing. Berry Gordy outlived him.
Seventies Soulchild: Berry is living well and I think because he was more of a health fanatic (former boxer) and well just happier.
HistoryBuff: Hey AYWalton. I just got kicked off by the server. Wonder if that happened to 70s. How are you?
AYWalton: howdy HistoryBuff how are you? No one was here when I came in.
HistoryBuff: She must have gotten kicked off, because we were conversing when the server got lost and logged me out.
AYWalton: I just saw that Don Cornelius died! Suicide! How sad!
HistoryBuff: We were just talking about him. Like I said earlier, I'm sorry to see someone with such a wealth of knowledge and experience leave this universe.
AYWalton: such a loss!
HistoryBuff: I would love to read about his genealogy. and his biography.
AYWalton: I know what you mean.
HistoryBuff: Seventies and I began chatting at about 12:21 PM. Didn't seem like anyone was here earler.
