    Thanks for giving us, Harry Potter fans Professor Snape.
    His ability to quietly appear out of nowhere was kind of creepy but equally funny for the way he scared the sh*t out of Ron and Harry.

    Wow, this is sad. May peace be with his family during this time.

    All the legends Cole, Bowie and Rickman were around the same age. Old but not old yet too young. Thank you all for sharing your gifts/talents with the world.
