David Cassidy and the Middle-Aged Women in Mourning

This article sums up how a lot of fans are feeling…

You didn’t notice us because, well, lots of people just don’t notice middle-aged women. But that lady in your office who’s sitting in her cubicle eating her microwaved lunch — she’s one of them. The lady wearing sneakers with her dress and carrying a tote bag on the metro — she’s one, too. She may be the lady at the cash register at Walmart. She could even be the woman in the board room of some Wall Street bank for all we know. But right now, we all have one thing in common: we’re in a bit of a fog. A little out of sorts. Something in our world is out of place because the teen idol we grew up worshipping is absent. A star’s light suddenly dimmed. And now everything seems off kilter.
Now, millions of David Cassidy fans – women roughly between 55 and 65 – are in state of loss, of confusion and mourning. Be easy on us. As the country grapples with political leaders, movie stars and Hollywood moguls who use their power to belittle, harass and abuse women, we are feeling misty for the old days when at least one of our heroes seemed to never threaten us. He made us feel respected and we trusted him. We didn’t just think we loved you, David Cassidy. We knew it.

Memorial Bench To Be Built at NMRHOF

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs will be the site of an outdoor bench to honor the memory of entertainer David Cassidy and his contributions to the Thoroughbred industry. The cost of the bench is $2,500 and will be covered by donations from fans. Donations are tax deductible and every donor will be invited to the Museum Courtyard dedication scheduled for the end of April.
Cassidy, who became involved in racing as an owner/breeder, made efforts to ensure the protection of retired race horses and was involved in fundraising to benefit the cause.
Donations toward the bench, which can be made in memory of David Cassidy, can be contributed via phone by calling 518-584-0400, extension 100; via mail to the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, 191 Union Ave., Saratoga Springs, NY, 12866; on Facebook with an accompanying phone call; or online at racingmuseum.org.

David Cassidy Memorial

First an introduction: I took over Jade’s Downunder David Cassidy Fansite in November 2004 and redesigned the site with the aim of creating a complete record of David’s amazing talent; detailing all aspects of his life and as a record of the impact David had on fans from around the world. Cat allowed me to incorporate much of her Da-idy website so that a complete record of David’s activities could be kept together. In 2011 David asked me to incorporate my, now very large, Fansite into his official website.  There are now over 5870 pages and over 15000 photos, thanks to contributions from fans from around the world.

I suggest that WE make the site a lasting memorial to David.

I invite all fans who were would like to contribute to David’s memorial (website) to email jane@davidcassidy.com

I will try to add things to the site as often as I can. You can see the latest additions at http://www.davidcassidy.com/fansite/FansPages/New_Pages_and_Updates.html
