Ed, Gerald, and BeBe makes three


They say these things happen in three's. Well, we lost another one. This time it was a member of the publishing industry; author Bebe Moore Campbell.


Bebe Moore Campbell, whose many best sellers such as "Brothers and Sisters" touched on America's ethnic and social divides, died Monday. She was 56.

Campbell died at home in Los Angeles from complications due to brain cancer, said publicist Linda Wharton-Boyd. She was diagnosed with the disease in February.

"My wife was a phenomenal woman who did it her way," husband Ellis Gordon Jr. said in a statement. "She loved her family and her career as a writer."

She was so young. Death is such a mystery, isn't it?

It's more like a certainty.

So true, Rich.

I meant that it is such a mystery to me...like why does God pick one person and not another?

I remember meeting Ms Moore-Campbell at a Todays Black Woman Conference in Chicago. She signed the two books I had of hers at the time, she had such a beautiful and sweet spirit. She will be missed.

I like to consider those types of questions, God's business. He is the creator and therefore can handle his business however he see's fit. It's too complex for man to even try and consider his ways. We can't even figure out why people do what they do, let alone God.

For all you feminists, interchange He with She in my last comment.

RIP: BeBe Moore Campbell

i was going to make reference to that "makes three" cliche, but i'm getting a little more mortalistic (if such a word) as i'm 41, going down the hill and one day, i maybe number one, two or three...

Ms. Campbell was a wonderful woman. I met her one year at BEA. She is so friendly and open. She will be greatly missed. She was a talented writer.
