R.I.P. 2010.

by alirioaguero2 | created - 23 Sep 2011 | updated - 27 Sep 2011 | Public

A memoire to those who left us during 2010.

1. Only people I KNEW (of at least KNEW OF) are inlcuded, really sorry about others too, but I will not include anyone unless I knew them.

2. This is supposed to be sad and dignifying tribute, so please restrain from funny or insulting comments.

Thank you:)

May these people forever rest in peace!
