    How old are her children? Too young to lose a mother, anyway.

  • xica

    No one suddenly dies at 46. Must have been drugs. R.I.P Dolores

  • Jennifer

    That’s a stupid and ignorant comment. People drop dead all the time, for no particular reason. Insensitive to say too.

  • parisjok

    the youngest is only 12 years old. so very very sad. that will effect all of them for the rest of their lives

  • Stoni

    I think I read somewhere they are 20, 16 and 12.

  • Yeah Right

    Aneurysms and massive heart attacks. You are dead before you hit the ground.

  • ShellBell

    This is one death that was a real surprise and it’s still hard to believe. I loved the Cranberries as a band but it was Dolores’ voice that was the real talent.

  • Utope

    R.I.P. Dolores. Zombie was one of my favourite songs from the 90′s.
