Greetings and Merry Christmas to my fellow Orthodox readers (if any remain for this rather defunct page)!
I sadly acknowledge today’s death announcement of Cranberries lead Dolores O’Riordan. I was a fan. Six years ago, I ran a Cranberries week of posts to celebrate my attending their concert at the 9:30 Club. She was so young—such a pity. I somewhat expect the deaths of boomer celebrities, especially given their lifestyle choices over the decades, but O’Riordan’s untimely passing is a most unpleasant surprise.
Here is the Cranberries’ “When You’re Gone”:
Pray for her soul.
