Another tragic story, seems comedy is a bipolar, depression and drug use arena, comedy hiding all the pain inside. Freddie died at 22, under the influence of drugs. What a sad ending to what had become a fairytale story. I will always remember him as long as I live, I grew up watching his show and to this day I feel a sadness in my heart that the world lost such a beautiful soul so needlessly, just as we have lost so many before him and after him, the list just keeps growing. Could anything have been done to help him? We will never know.
