I cried over John Lennon and Princess Di. I also cried when I watched Jackie Kennedy Onassis' funeral.

Oh...I was always a fan of Erma Bombeck's writing. When she died I got choked up too.

I wanted to add that you never know whose passing is gonna touch you.I can't recall the year it was.My mom came busting through my door crying and hollering,"they killed her,they killed her".I asked who as my heart was about to jump out of my chest.I was stunned when she said Princess Di.
No offense,I was relieved it wasn't a relative/friend.

Not a fan of her, she was a beautiful girl who followed her dream.
When she had her baby, I was dealing with my dad's death.
I remember her son passing, Larry was so public about the baby's DNA.
Here she is trying to deal with a happy day, the birth of little Danniellynn when her son dies. I don't feel Larry was respectful of her with what he did and when; the baby wasn't going anywhere; it was not the time to do what he did.

Honestly, it was too much for her; it takes an awful strong person to deal with something like that, losing her son ripped her heart out. I feel that if Larry left her alone she might still be here.

I am absolutely surprised at two things:

1. So many people crying over Aalyiah.
2. So man AMERICANS crying over Princess Diana

Both deaths where sad, but Aalyiah wasnt a HUGE HUGE star yet. Princess Diana may (or may not) have been huge in the U.K. but I dont she was all that much here in the U.S.A. Maybe with the 50 years and older female crowd she was popular, but not with the everyday American.

I cried when John Kennedy, Jr. died but the tears were really for his sister Caroline. I knew her pain: the premature loss of an only sibling and little brother.

Aaliyah was a huge star to me. I remember the day I first saw her first video Back & Forth ( I was 15) and began following her career on that day. I had every album and was in awe of all her videos. I thought she was beautiful and I really admired her. I think I was also only 2 years older, so I felt like she was a friend.
