Bernie Mac's Sister Speaks About His Death+Pics Of His Granddaughter
Aug 10 | by Natasha
We lost one of the best comedians of our time to Pneumonia yesterday, Bernie Mac. And now his sister Mary Ann Grossett has spoken with People.com about details of his death. Bernie's wife of 30 years Rhonda and 30 year old daughter Je'Niece were both with him when he died. Apparently he had to be recusitated twice; once he was brought back by the doctors, then went into cardiac arrest the second time. His sister Mary Ann recalls her brother and sister-in-law's last conversation: [Rhonda said] 'Don't leave me … 'I'm waiting for you to come back.' He shrugged his shoulders, and she said that's when she knew he was tired. He signaled to her that his body was tired." You can check out the rest of the story at People as honestly I'm not really up to posting more of it due to the emotional nature of it. You can also read some of his celebrity friends' words of rememberance here. The funeral services will take place August 15th in an undisclosed location. This is such a terrible loss. R.I.P. Mr. Mac.
