Hey princess sapphire
Should we lock this thread at the year end and start a new one Rip 2017?

Otherwise the thread is continuous and could have a billion posts

I don't see any point in that. don't really see what difference it would make in having this thread and a Rest in Peace 2017 thread. if your looking at the posts you will see what year it was posted, so I wouldn't be confused when someone died. so what if it's continuous, every thread is really.

If you look at the start of the thread, it's been going on and off since 2005, so I have no issue with continuing in the same vein. Likewise, if the majority want to start a new one, I have no issue either.

This is crazy! Apart for the loss of my Dad this year, we have lost two friends who were also too young to die, the latest being my partners best mate since they were 16 on Christmas Eve.

RIP Carrie and Debbie.

Novelist and filmmaker William Peter Blatty, a former Jesuit school valedictorian who conjured a tale of demonic possession and gave millions the fright of their lives with the best-selling novel and Oscar-winning movie "The Exorcist," has died. He was 89.
