R.I.P. Bernie Mac

Bernie Mac dies at the age of 50...

While many have been reporting the rumor that he has died for a while now, today those rumors became fact. Actor/Comedian Bernie Mac passed away early this morning around 2am. According to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office, Bernie Mac died of "natural causes". Mr. Mac suffered from sarcoidosis which is an autoimmune disorder that can causes inflammation in any organ, rooted in his lungs. Bernie had been in remission and reports are indicating that the pneumonia he was admitted to the hospital for August 1, was not linked to the sarcoidosis. Tragically reports that were released just Friday stated that he was responding well to treatment. Rest In Peace Uncle Bernie, you will be missed.

I hate that for Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes. I am sure they will be sorely missed by those who loved them unconditionally. Great entertainers.
