(is it okay to say that I really really really hope it was something like a spontaneous heart attack or stroke? purely accidental and unpreventable)

(I have to go back to work now... hopefully well, hopefully something...)

Yes, I think so, although its looking unlikely  :(

I am in complete shock. I can't believe it. I feel sick.

On tv now there are showing that there is a mob scene outside of his apartment.  I guess there are a lot of us who just don't know what to do now.

I never felt this way for anyone I didn't actually know before.

He is right.........this is "UNTHINKABLE"........AND SOOO SOOO SAD....
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

..

I was thinking of that as well but they are calling it a "possible suicide".
That just hurts ...

Shock doesn't begin to describe it.

I heard it on the radio on my way home from work and I had to pull over. 

I'm not even sure how I got home.  I want to go back in time when this wasn't true.  I can't turn on the TV.   I don't want to accept it.  I just want to stay here and cry.

OMG I just got the news here at work.

Shock!

So, do we think it was deliberate?  Suicide?  Him and Michelle broke up.  Pressure about his career?  Oscar nods for BBM, playing the Joker, etc.

It's going to be real creepy seein' him as the Joker now.

THANK YOU HEATH for playing Ennis Del Mar and for touching all of us with your perfomance.  No one could have played him better!  :)

RIP Heath.  :'(

I'm completely numb at this news. I feel so terribly, terribly sorry for Matilda, and Michelle - and for Heath himself. So much talent and such a wonderfully gifted man, and dying so young. It's such a tragedy.  I hope it turns out to be some kind of accident, not the suicide the news seems to be hinting at....  :'( :'( :'(

The news is chattering on here about world economy problems, no mention of Heath yet, and I want to ask them to get their priorities right and take time out with all the silly money chatter...

This is so unbelievable. I freely admit I'm crying as I type. Probably should tear mysef away and go to bed but I just *can't* sleep now.
