My aunts death due to breast cancer she left 3 children behind youngest 3 and oldest 11

This was about "shocking moments" not death --Cory and Paul's death was shocking because it was not normal nor was it expected. Mandela was a great man although we knew he was sick we still was not expecting his death so it was a shock. But that's my thought.


Cory's and Paul's death was a huge shocker this year

Interesting really !

RIP Cory & Paul

Oh for goodness sake people, the title of this article said it all. The SHOCKING moments that BLEW OUR MINDS. Use your common sense.... Nelson Mandela's death, while very sad, was neither of those things at the age of 95.
