    I have.
    I lost a sister at six weeks and my brother who was younger by 11 months at age 23.
    When I see young ones in Obits, I become emotional.

    My mother had a cousin who was a marine who died at iwo jima. He had written her several letters, imcluding one written less than one month before he was killed. She never shared the letters with me even though I knew about them. When she died, the letters went to my brother. When he died they finally came to me. Reading them affected me strongly and he became real to me. For some reason I cried for days after, grieving for this brave 21 year old boy. Even now I can't reread the letters because they touch me deeply.

    When Brittany Murphy died, I did feel sad....mostly because she reminded me of someone in real life

    I'm sure I have in the past, when I was young, but not recently, no. I surprised myself by not crying when Princess Diana died. :coffee:

    I cried for weeks after Lennon was killed. I was young. If McCartney died now it wouldn't bother me a bit.

    I read about a 3 year old girl years ago that passed due to injuries sustained by her step father. he had tortured her over the period of over a year, making her eat her own vomit when she was sick, shot her with pellet guns, threw her down the stairs and locked her in the basement for days without food or water. that story still haunts me and is one major reason I know with very little doubt there is no god.

    As a kid, cried for days when Thurmon Munson died.

    It still makes me sad to think about.

    We had two local cops killed here a few years ago and they televised the funeral. I cried when they showed the one cop's German Shepherd howling at the casket, and then when they did the final radio call. So sad.

    I cried when I watched Michael Jackson's funeral. Man In The Mirror always makes me tear up, kinda like Gary and the Elton John song.
