Heaven just got Funnier and Funkier!

I am going a little bit off course today, but it is a MUST for me that I pay my utmost respect to Bernie Mac and Isacc Hayes.

This weekend we lost two legends of black entertainment— Bernie Mac on Saturday, and soul Legend Isacc Hayes on Sunday. I am still in great shock and disbelief. I tell you, there is surely a good show going on in Heaven. At the time of his death, Isaac had just wrapped a film with the late Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson called “Soul Men.” We need to make that #1 at the box office, Period.

After I heard the news, I just sat in the in my room listening to the radio tribute -with people calling in to the station all saying the same thing. “Too soon” and “Tomorrow is not promised.” I recently lost my grandmother at the age of 102, so I know all too well how fleeting this life can be.

As the second half of this year moves rapidly on by, I am pledging to stay focused on the things that make me happy and continuing to remove the things that are not. I don’t know how much time I have left here but I’m going to make the most of it.

Let’s celebrate Isaac Hayes today for all the beautiful music he gave us and all the harmonies he’s going to create up there with some of the greats that are are no longer with us. And Bernic Mac for the laughter and joy he brought while here on Earth. I thank you God for opening the gates of Heaven for these two Angels.

One thing for sure is, Heaven just got funnier and funkier.

  1. Good post, I think both entertainers will be missed by their fans, friends and family.
