Somewhere Over the Rainbow



According to Wikipedia, he died of a weight related respiratory illness.  At one time, he carried 770 pounds on his frame.  I just heard about this artist at the writing project I completed.

Aw, I didn't know he died...I knew about him, and saw a different version of a video for this song. I didn't know the artist died. That's just so sad...

So sad that he passed away - love this song though! I posted it about a week ago on my blog as well - very moving!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and YAY for your upcoming trip to Wilmington! We ate at Elijah's. The food was pretty good and the scenery was just gorgeous. There are lots of restaurants along the riverfront and the neighboring blocks, so there's good food all around! There's also a yummy ice cream shop up one of the streets - can't remember the name of it but it's delicious!

I'm following your blog now! :)
