2016: The Year of Death

For this week’s post I wanted to simply share a list of some of the celebrities that died this year. It seemed appropriate since there is only one day left of 2016 and I can easily say that this is the most notable year for celebrity deaths that I can remember. Please remember this list is not complete, just simply the celebrity deaths that I clearly recall and have noted throughout the year.
