  3. Oh my God Im a 42 and 1/2 year old woman livining, struggling, and fighting with this disease called sarcoidosis. That killed Bernie Mac of complications of phenumonia. With shortness of breath and chest pain i fear everyday of my last breath. I grew up following, watching and listening to Heavy D music and performance. He was a brilliant artist. It stop me in my tracks in pure shock. I had to say a prayer for him and his family. I will miss you Heavy D. dearly, RIP. Diddly- diddly- diddly- dee.

    As sad a this is another young black person gone too soon. We as a black race need to follow up with our annually visits to the doctors. And do as many test as you can even if you don’t feel pain. PLEASE JUST DO IT. THIS HAS TO STOP. WE ARE DYING TOO YOUNG.
