Thank you for sharing the link. The situation in the article is something that I am quite aware from reading both Mama DeBarge’s and Bunny’s books, but I feel that if you can’t say anything good about the departed when announcing their passing then speak not at all.

Losing a parent hurts the heart. I recently lost my Mother and know of what I speak. I therefore announced Father DeBarge’s passing because no matter what happened in life, the loss of a parent demands our empathy, sympathy and prayer for the children left behind IMHO.

(Parenthetically I am wondering if that is my photo with the OSML removed? The only place they could have gotten it was from my blog or the DeBarge Family Yahoo Group where I initially uploaded it without the brand. I don’t mind: I understand the ways of the internet – but a permission request would have made me feel better. Thanks again for sharing the link.)
