In this case, RIP can be "Rest In Purgatory."


No, that would be too kind.

What really baffles me is how the news media has really played up his death and recounted the actions that made him infamous.
It’s like saying, “Hey kids! If you really want to be remembered, just go out and brutally murder a bunch of people.”
Meanwhile, people who are actually kind, generous, and produce positive impacts on society are typically ignored.

Jana Novatna - Czech tennis player, Wimbledon champion. Sad

Very sad. I didn't know that she was battling cancer. Frown

Her loss to Graf in the 1993 Wimbledon Final, after leading 4-1 in the final set, was one of the most memorable moments in the history of tennis. She was completely distraught, and sought consolation on the shoulder of the Duchess of Kent. A completely genuine and moving moment.

I was very happy that she finally won Wimbledon in 1998.

She was an exceptional doubles and mixed doubles player, winning a combined 16 Grand Slam titles in both.

She had a fantastic smile!

I hope she is now at peace.

Bummer. Good run at 87 though.

I remember the first time I heard him sing. I was sure someone was doing a voiceover.

RIP

No more back home in Indiana

As a long time IndyCar fan, his rendition was a tradition on that morning in late May every year before the 500. Not the same without him. RIP

Wow big bummer! They started out in my college town during my college days and played fraternity basement parties a couple times. We're also regulars with many shows at the Court Tavern. RIP Pat
