I know I'm not the only person who loves the end of each year with an overview of what transpired in the last 12 months. For me it's something that I looked forward to when Tom Brokaw ended his nightly news broadcast with a fast moving slide show of the notables who passed in the past year. Well, Tom's long gone - along with ">Brian Williams
LOCALS FROM WWL
As we prepare to close out 2015, we remember some of the New Orleanians we lost - from musicians and chefs to community leaders, broadcasters & journalists. While no list like this is ever complete, we pay tribute to some of them"> NOLA.com
From CNBC, notable losses
famous deaths in entertainment
From Newsday. (Lillian Vernon died??)
There are probably overlaps here, , but I find it's always good to be sure to include everyone. Here's US Magazines "lost in 2015"
And last and least TV Guide's extensive list , which froze up on me. It has a lot of "I didn't know he/she died!" moments.
Happy New Year, Y'all
