Between Ferguson and the former basketball player Swanigan dying that’s shocking. Two athletes in their mid 20s with no cause of death discussed so far.

I always think OD or suicide now, that’s horrible isn’t it? But I can’t help it, that’s always my thought. The odds of people that age dying of natural causes is just sooo small.

Let's not forget that he was also great in Elf, which usually does very well on lists of the best Christmas movies ever made. Here was a guy who could be in the best mafia movie ever and the best Christmas movie ever and nailed both roles.

Checking in on the forum for the first time in ages to see quite a few familiar names have moved on here. Very sad, and many condolences to their families. Wishing the rest still here health & happiness.

yes, MG and BiL are the confirmed ones.  Others vanished without reports.  Then there's a group that don't post but at last reports are doing well (Spider, Mitlen).  Good to "see" you.
