    I forgot it was on FAD! I can never remember where I read anything! That's terrible.

    Actually come to think of it, Lou Costello lost a kid to drowning too.

    Forgive you for what? I really haven't seen any threads we've been on together besides Knut the Polar Bear and the world penis map and we've
    never had a bad word between us on anything that I can see. I see nothing to forgive you for.
    Thank you for your condolences and the hugs.

    We lost my Nephew Mike about 20 years ago. He was a grown man about 16 months younger than me. My sister to this day says a parent outliving their kids is the most horrible thing she can think of and she wouldn't wish it on anyone.
    OJ Simpson lost a child (drowned in the pool) and Errol Flynn lost a son who disappeared in Southeast Asia during the war ( he was a photgrapher I think, noncombatant).
    Of course the Lindberg's child kidnapped and injured causing death during the kidnapping.
    regards,
    mary

    Actually Mary it was a supposed to be a support group, there's a few of them out there, I have been involved with both in person groups and on line groups and the whole point being we all there to support each other. If someone in the group has a bad time because of an anniversary or whatever we give them our support and cry on each others shoulders. I ended up on a good support group on Facebook.
    The in person group we used to go to would probobly be like an AA meeting except for the fact they had Vodka Penne there.

    Robert Plant lost his son, Karac, to a virus in 1977. He was only 5 years old. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think he wrote "All of my love" in his honor.

    Jerrry Van Dyke's daughter Kelly committed suicide.

    John Walsh's son Adam was kidnapped and murdered. John Walsh became famous for it because of all of his work he did after his son died- hosting America's Most Wanted and such...

    Charlie Chaplin and Mildred Harris's son was either stillborn or died within a few days of birth. He is buried under a headstone labeled "Our Mouse" or "Little Mouse".

    Lou Costello Jr

    Lou Jr. (nicknamed "Butch") on November 6, 1942.
    In March 1943, after completing the film Hit The Ice, Costello had an attack of rheumatic fever and was unable to work for six months. Later that year on November 4, he returned to the team's popular radio show, but a tragic event shadowed his comeback. Upon arriving at the NBC studio, Lou received word that his infant son Lou Jr. had accidentally drowned in the family pool. The baby was just two days short of his first birthday. Lou had asked his wife to keep Butch up that night so the boy could hear his father on the radio for the first time. Rather than cancel the broadcast, Lou said, "Wherever he is tonight, I want him to hear me," and went on with the show. No one in the audience knew of the death until after the show when Bud Abbott explained the events of the day, and how the phrase "The show must go on" had been epitomized by Lou that night.

    Ain't it the truth? When I lost my brother I got an outpouring of love from Internet friends. Far more than in person. Amazing.

    I think one of Bing Crosby's son committed suicide. Don't know if it counts because I think Der Bingle had already died.

    Yes, Bing (and his first wife Dixie) were long gone by the time the sons died.


    I believe that both Lindsay and Dennis commited suicide (before they reached the age of 65 and were entitled to the money from their father's estate too). Gary died of a heart attack and Phillip died of cancer.

    My condolances too Jerseysucks.

    For the UK hags there have been quite a few tragedies in recent years, the most recent being Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden's son being stillborn. Singer Lily Allen had a son also stillborn. Actress Kym Marsh lost her son Archie moments after he was born having gone into labour 18 weeks early. Another actress, Sarah Parish (who starred with Amanda Holden in Cutting It) lost her daughter Ella to a heart defect at 8 months old. The late comic legend Bob Monkhouse lost two sons- Gary to cerebal palsy in 1992 at the age of 40 and Simon (from whom he was estranged) died of a heroin overdose in a Thai hotel in 2001. Only his daughter Abigail survived him after his death. How he dealt with those I will never know. Was gutted when he died! From the world of sport Danny Mills, the ex England footballer, lost his son Archie to spina bifida in 2002 and he is the patron of their charity ASBAH.

    There's probably more but for now I think my work here is done

    I have a question for you and I think it's about Boz Scaggs but I'm not sure.
    Wasn't he the one who was on the highway and a truckdriver got pissed and shot his son in the mouth?
    I know this happened to a country artist I just can't remember who.
    Is any other HAGS want to jump in feel free.

    I don't think he's the one, Jersey.


    He has one son, Austin Scaggs who is a musical journalist.
    Another son, Oscar, died of a heroin overdose in 1998 at the age of 21.
