David Cassidy 12/04/1950 – 21/11/2017

It is with great sadness that I post this message.

David Cassidy has meant so much to so many people.

David was an iconic teen idol in the 70’s and he maintained a career spanning movies, theatre, music, writing, directing. His multi-generational connection to so many people from all walks of life, from all around the world will be felt today.

Despite being a star, he was kind hearted, thoughtful and considerate of others.
He will be greatly missed.

Jane

    Ich bin so unendlich traurig. Jetzt ist der letzte Teil meiner Kinder-und Jugendzeit gestorben. Ruhe in Frieden David. Ich vermisse dich und hoffe, dass es dir dort wo du jetzt bist, gut geht.

    May David soar to new heights where ever he may be and although the world is heartbroken by his loss, we are also thankful. Thankful that we were blessed to have such a talented man touch us through his music, his humor,his sincerity, and graciousness. So with a heavy heart I go to bed tonight, but tomorrow I will smile again because I know David lives on spirit and song…he’s just found a new way to fly…

    I am a child of the 70s and spent most of my years watching Patridge Family which was one of my favorite shows. When I heard that David was sick it just broke my heart so I wanted to reach out and write to you to express my sincere condolences to the family. May his memory forever be a blessing, he will never be forgotten. To me, David was not just a teen idol, he was a person with a tremendous heart of compassion, an artist who followed his dreams and had wonderful talent.. He will be greatly missed.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    It seems unreal that David Cassidy is no longer with us. I feel like I’m having a bad dream and I can’t wake up from it. The world feels like a sad and empty place right now. But the past 67 years that David was here with us made the world a better and brighter place. I have been such a fan of David’s that I named one of my pets after him. Back in October of 2001, my Mom and I found a little stray Gray Tabby polydactyl kitten, whom I named Cassidy. Sadly, Cassidy passed away in May of 2014, and she is terribly missed. We’ll miss you too, David. You are so loved by so many! I know I’ll always be a fan. Love and prayers for you and your family and friends. Rest in peace.

    My David….you were my first love since I was 9. You will always be in my ❤️ And I listen to your music almost every day. I thank God for you and I’ll treasure all the concerts I was at and my dream of meet and greet came true in 2010.. the last few years killed me to see you in pain and misunderstood by the media. I know now you are with our Lird and no more pain.

    I’ll love you forever my first love.

    Happy Trails 😪

    Such sad news about David. I have loved David since the early 70 s and he will always have a special place in my heart. Just like Deana I too had a fantastic time at his UK concerts, they were such special times that I will remember forever. May God Bless David’s Family and friends at this sad time. At least David is now free from pain and I am sure he is looking down and smiling at us all. His music will live forever,

    Thank you for your message, Jane and I’m sorry for your loss. My very deepest sympathy to Beau and the whole Cassidy family for the loss of David.

    I feel so much grief, so deeply saddened, this doesn’t seem real. David has been a part of my life since 1971 and was particularly important to me during my teenage years. I saw him in concert in Sydney in 1974, and continued to follow him over the years. I was always impressed by his talent and looks, but particularly by the person that he obviously was, a kind, generous man.

    To my beloved David, I am so sorry for the struggles and suffering you endured in your life. I have really felt for you throughout these times. You’ve been so very special to me, I’d have to say the love of my life. You are no longer in pain or suffering in any other way now and for that I am grateful, you went through enough in your life. You are now reunited with your beloved Mum and Dad. I want to pay tribute to you and your talent and most of all, for the wonderful genuine man that you were. I will never ever forget you. RIP my darling David. xxxx

    From your devoted fan Sandra,
    Sydney, Australia

    Dearest David,
    I wish I could of told you how much you meant to me , but I know your
    watching over my shoulder as I write to you , God provides a way certain songs of yours meant something to me , as I was growing up ( I was a clown) , just wanted to be loved , when I was in my mid teens I wished somebody want to be wanted like me , I didn’t know where love was or who was love , until I gave my life to Jesus , now I’m a christ follower, now I know God is love and that’s where all love comes from. As I grew older I got married and knew the passion of your Heartbeat remix songs and all the love songs you ever sang , when I got divorced , I knew the meaning of your whole ( Didn’t you used to be CD) . My mom and I fought over you till I stopped saying anything ……..sweet David I can’t express all you meant to me , you sang what I was feeling, you knew how to get to me ……….till we meet again……..peace and love be with you my dear sweet David……….love Georgette……….

    Along with the millions of fans around the world, my heart is breaking at the loss of David. He influenced me as a young girl of 9/10 by his beautiful voice, his beautiful music and his beautiful presence on tv. I have all of his albums and since the introduction of CDs, I bought them all again on CD as I couldn’t live without his music. And as he leaves this world his music will live on forever. Sadly I never got to see him in concert, a deep regret.
    Sending condolences to all his family especially his beloved children.
    Rest in peace without pain David Cassidy. Your spirit will live forever. X

    Remember those clouds that we look up and see…Those clouds that look like NO other clouds we have ever seen before…I thank David personally for letting me see those clouds and leading me to make the positive choices in my life. He was not only my Idol, he was a true friend of expression and kindness, making a difference to all those he touched and met, including myself. My you rest in peace my true friend.

I had the best teenage years going to all your concerts in London and one in Glasgow, and following your car in black taxis, and waking up every morning looking at your lovely smiley face on my poster’s that covered all my bedroom walls. My condolences to all your family, it’s a very sad day. ♥️xxx😣

    So very, very sad.
    I’ve been immersed in youtube clips of David with tears streaming.
    When driving home yesterday the DJ on the radio introduced ‘Cherish’ by the late David Cassidy and it felt very surreal.
    David gave to much of himself to his fans and I don’t think any of us would want him to suffer or linger, he didn’t deserve that.
    He’s probably jamming up in heaven right now with other late greats who he respected.
    I will always remember the way I left his concerts on a high, nights to remember and treasure.
    David will live on through his wonderful music.
    May God rest his soul.

    Sincere condolences to all the Cassidy family and David’s close friends.
    I hope all these loving messages will help to heal the pain you are suffering right now.

    My heart is broken since I heard the news about David. I have, like thousands of other followers, loved David since I saw him back in 1971. I have never stopped adoring him for all his many talents. I honestly cannot believe he is gone. He has been with us throughout our lives and given us so much happiness and joy. I just cannot stop the hurt I feel in my heart. Too young to leave us my sweet man. His music will live on forever as will my love for him.

    Thank you Jane for your kind message and for keeping us up to date. My deepest sympathy to Beau, Katie and all the Cassidy family including Maura. Cherish his memories. He was and is one of a kind.
    Sincerely, Sheila (Scotland)

    HAPPY TRAILS DAVID.

    I like many many other fans are in shock and heartbroken that you have passed away. I will miss your messages on your website but know it will be a great comfort from now on(thank you Jane) with all the wonderful information pictures, how hard you worked and how talented you were.
    I have been blessed to have seen you live eight times and they were all the best nights of my life.The last time was November 2012,when I met you and had my photo taken with you.
    I feel so sad that you suffered so much but I know you did not want to end up like your dear mum. Now you are in heaven and I hope one day to see you there as well. You have a very special place in my heart from the first time I saw you on the Partridge family in the 1970’s. You are the only person I ever wrote a poem and sent to you.You will stay in my heart forever. My thoughts are with your family. Rest in peace out of pain.God Bless you.You will be missed by so many and so much.Lots of love Angela Mitchell.Cornwall uk.xxxc

    I had dreaded the day we would learn that David had died.
    I am terribly sad for Sue, Beau, Katie, Shaun, Patrick and Ryan and the Cassidy family. The legions of friends, work colleagues and the huge fans all over the world.
    Yesterday, I found myself desperately seeking video clips, photos any news and tributes to David. I fouud it comforting in a strange way, connected I guess.
    I always listen to David’s music, in the house and when in the car.
    Thank you for this website and the information. I’m glad David has peace and was surrounded by his family,,the most important people to him. Kindest regards, Crystal McRoberts, Ayrshire Scotland. Uk. XX

    Cant stop crying..Its so weird. For so many years ago, David painted my walls aswell, in my room as a little girl, he opened me up for music (and boys:) Never saw the Partridge show, as it wasnt on TV in Sweden, but heard his magical voice on the radio and than there were the magazines.. Was so touched by his hard struggle later in life and think he handled it all in a very honest and gracious way. I am glad for his sake, he now is at peace, but still not able to stop the tears when reading about him and listening to ” Daydreamer”. Thank you for the music David, RIP💟

    There’s really nothin left to say

David has been the soundtrack to my life since 1970.He was so handsome those beautiful eyes his smile and his voice just melted your heart. He not only could sing, act on television, theatre perform in concerts, he was also a brilliant musician and songwriter. He never got the recognition he deserved and the media sometimes were very unkind to him. His legacy will live on through his music.
    We are sad that he has gone but thankful for all the happy memories he has left behind.
    Rest in peace David . Isabel Belfast N.I.

    Com o David Cassidy, morreu um pouco da minha adolescência. Foi a m/primeira paixão juvenil. Sempre fui sua fan, apesar de ser portuguesa e nunca o ter visto ao vivo. Há cerca de dois anos comprei o seu disco “then and now” em Londres.
    Peço a Deus que o receba de braços abertos, como recompensa da felicidade que transmitiu em todo o mundo.

      Na minha primeira visita a Nova York a 1ª coisa que fiz foi comprar bilhetes para o «Blood Brothers», no Music Box.
      Tinha trinta e tal anos e foi uma emoção poder estar tão perto do Davy da minha adolescência. Comovi-me até ás lágrimas.
      Parte de mim desapareceu com a morte de David.
      Que encontre a paz e a harmonia que sempre procurou.

    “When the chains around me no longer ground me
    and my soul can sail away to a better life –
    That’ll Be The Day”

    My heartfelt condolences to all of David’s family and others who cared about him so much. That community numbers in the millions.

    I trust he is at peace, his soul now experiencing a better life.

      Ahh Yes … Paul,

      “When the chains around me no longer ground me
      and my soul can sail away to a better life –
      That’ll Be The Day”

      … a quote from “That’ll Be The Day” written by the late great Tony Romeo … he wrote SO many of David’s hits … starting with I THINK I LOVE YOU …
      but also…
      You Are Always On My Mind & Point Me In The Direction Of Albuquerque & Morning Rider On The Road & Its One Of Those Nights & I Am A Clown & Sing Me & Summer Days & Together We’re Better & We Could Never Be Friends & As Long As There’s You & I Would Have Loved You Anyway & Being Together & You Don’t Have To Tell Me & It Means I’m In Love With You & I’ll Never Get Over You & Last Night & Hello, Hello & …
      we can’t forget the PF Christmas Classic … My Christmas Card To You

      Tony died years ago … only 56 years old (1995). There is one song on David’s album from the 90s NEW TRICK OLD DOG … called YOU WERE THE ONE credited to BOTH David and Tony … I’m sure the two are making music together in heaven since David’s passing. I have listened to that song many times since David’s passing — in celebration of both men’s lifes and contributions to music …
      … IF OUR LIVES WERE A MOVIE
      then I would have to say
      DAVID CASSIDY PROVIDED THE SOUNDTRACK
      … RIP ♥ DAVID ♥ …

      … with much love – to David – always – Joanne Johnson – (New York state, USA)

    I, like the other lovely posts, have had a hard time accepting that he is gone. As a young girl at the age of 10 he was my first love and 47 years later the feeling is the same. The night of his passing I could not sleep even though for many years I have gone to sleep listening to his Cherish CD. That night I just played it over and over again wondering how David’s first night in Heaven was and knowing that he will never be in pain again.. I lost my Big Sister to cancer in February and his PF Greatest Hits CD was all I could listen to as his sweet, sexy and gorgeous voice got me through the pain I was in. Not in my wildest expectations would I then be listening to it because of David’s passing. I have yet to be able to get through Looking Through The Eyes Of Love without breaking down. I know he is now my new Guardian Angel and is feeling so loved with all of the wonderful sentiments we are sharing. He meant a lot to many of us and deep down I know he felt the same about his fans. So very grateful that I meet him in person 8 years ago, a dream that I thought would never come true. RIP David…till we meet again!

    Life is but a stopping place,
    A pause in what’s to be,
    A resting place along the road,
    To sweet eternity.

    We all have different journeys,
    Different paths along the way,
    We are all meant to learn some things,
    But never meant to stay.

    Our destination is a place,
    Far greater than we know,
    For some, the journey’s quicker,
    For some the journey’s slow.

    But when the journey finally ends,
    We’ll claim a great reward,
    And find an everlasting peace,
    Together with the Lord.

    I can’t get the song from “Blood Brothers” out of my mind.

    And morning will come soon”.

    You’ll always be in my heart. Thank you for years of happiness.

    Having now shed my tears of shock and sadness that David has been taken, I can share a few words that millions over the globe must be feeling. First seen on my tv when i was 15 he was my original and only heartthrob. I link him with some of the best memories i have of my teenage years. Now a grandmother of two in my 60s I still fondly think of him and sad that era has now ended. David will always have a place in my heart where he and those lovely memories will forever be cherished, My heart goes out to his family for his loss, and thank them for letting us give him a place in millions of ours.
    BLESS YOU DAVID
    CHERISH YOU

    Why has the music stopped?
    Where did all the happy people go?
    I know they were there, songs everywhere
    Only a moment ago.
    I only blinked my eye; and now the world that I used to know
    Is changing’ on me; why can’t it be
    Only a moment ago

    The ones we hold so dear
    The ones we cherish
    The ones we want so near

    I’m free, I’m safe, no pain now
    In His arms I have no fear

    I’ve had many idols over the years, but David Cassidy is the only celebrity that I actually cried when I heard the news that he passed away. I knew it was coming, but when the alert came on my computer, my heart stopped and then I started weeping. Then I turned on the news and saw a clip of him singing with the Partridge Family and I cried again. I read Danny Bonaduce’s touching comments on Twitter and I cried again. It hurt to smile at work the next day.

    I’m a great fan of David living in Japan. I just want his family and friends to know that there are so many fans like me halfway around the globe. I became his fan when I was a teenager, which opened my eyes toward the outside world. I started to learn English in earnest in order to understand the lyrics of his songs and to read magazine articles about him. That was the beginning of my career as a translator. I cannot tell how much I owe to David. It’s a great pity that I wasn’t able to convey my gratitude in person to him. But I’m sure he will remain part of me as long as I live. David, thank you very much and rest in peace!

    I can’t believe that it’s been about 45 years. How I would beg my Mum for Tiger Brat just so I could pour over any picture of David – and bless his heart…he just wanted a life. What a kind and sweet man. I thank him for coming out about the dementia, as embarrassing or frightening as it must have been. But how incredibly courageous that was! He shone the light for others and blazed the trail for them to not be as afraid.

    I’m so grateful to David for the YEARS that he shared with us and to his family, who are suffering so. May the sweet memories quickly take over the sadness you feel and thank you for sharing him with all of us.

    David Cassidy is a legend and will continue to be a legend. OMG his songs were so good and he had a gorgeous voice. What pains me is that he had no support from his family, (father), and that affected him in the long run. Shame on his father and I’m being nice when saying this. I could write a book about how much influence parents have on their children. His other family was supported by Shirley Jones. When people hear the word, “Cassidy”, they will think “DAVID” not anyone else. Sorry Shaun, Ryan, and Patrick.

To David, thank for all the joy and happiness you gave to all of your fans. You had a heart of gold. You will never be forgotten. In all your correspondence you would sign off with happy trails ( this is the first and last song from the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans TV show you watched as a child ) “Happy Trails” to you until we meet again.

    Dear David,
    I am heartbroken to hear of your passing. I have shared so many beautiful moments with you. Your concerts, In Stores, “Blood Brothers”, the Broadway Show Leagues, where I watch “Blood Brothers” and at one point, the ball you were using, rolled right to me and I handed it back to you. What a really special moment. The moments that I have shared with you have been so many, that I can’t even count them, as each one was special to me.
    I am going to miss you and I am glad that you and your family had a chance to be together before you passed. But, I know that you will always live in my heart, because I have learned so much from you and your kindness to me was truly genuine.
    Thank you for all of thew beautiful moments you gave me as they all have enriched my life. Thank you for your music, thank you for your talents, thank you for everything.. You are a gift to us.
    I will miss you.
    With love,

    My sincere condolences to David Cassidy’s family and friends I’m sorry for your loss of such a great and very talented and loved man. He will forever be in the hearts of his fans as well. My prayer for his family and friends is for God to reach down and put his comforting and loving arms around each and everyone of you so that all of his friends and family may have peace in this time of sorrow. When the Partridge Family show was on in Canton, Ohio it was the one show I was glued to because of David Cassidy. His posters and his brother Shaun’s posters were plastered all over my walls in my bedroom. So much so I thought my mom was going to have coronary because they were taped up on my walls. My mom bought me each birthday the newest Partridge Family album and to this day I still have them all as well as Shaun’s to and some I have 2 of. I was in total shock when I read he was in the hospital with organ failure, but was scared that the inevitable was going to happen and it did. I’m very glad that when he was preforming at state line California/Nevada I was finally able to get to see him preform and it was AWESOME! Thank you to his family for sharing him with us as well as keeping us his fans up to date with what was going on with him. He will truly be missed by his fans as well as family and friends.

    Sincerely,

      but to me you’ll always be
      a wild stallion running free

        Hi Joanne,

        Just had to reply and tell you I love your poems, and I am sure David would have loved them too.
        I still cannot believe he’s gone, but he will never be forgotten. x x

          Hi Christine …
          Thank you for your kind words about my poems. I was 8 when I wrote the poem about the horse and 9 or 10 when I wrote the poem about David … both to go with art work I drew that hung on my wall (or door) of my bedroom as a child.
          David was the first drawing of a person I ever drew (it was a little like the drawings in the cartoon books that they had of him back then) and I wrote the poem to go with the cartoonish drawing of David.
          Years later I drew this portrait of David for my wall …
          http://www.davidcassidy.com/fansite/FansPages/FansGalleryJoanna.html
          And I also wrote a song in 2014 with a fan I ‘met’ on DAVIDCASSIDY.com (that we had hopped David might record one day) it was a sort of song expressing how David has brightened our lifes with his music…
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0TB_pyn2VI
          I got a singing duo from Florida to record it for my YouTube channel so I could hear what it sounds like with a male voice…
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh4l5z6_XC0
          That recording (by Brother Brother) was made only a couple of weeks before David was Hospitalized.

          Our dream of David recording the song someday will never happen … (I only wish it would never have happened for a different reason then that David has passed away).

          I prayed a short prayer for David every hour in the days before he died. I wish things had ended differently … BUT … I believe he is with God now …
          … and READING all these messages and knowing how much everyone loved him and his many talents.
          (I think he took his mom’s death very hard … and it was one thing after another the past few years what with the divorce and bankruptcy and his dementia diagnosis … and even that hurricane that hit Florida. I’ve been through a lot myself the last several years … I lost my house and everything in it during Hurricane Sandy … my mom died 2 or so years later … and three pets all died one after another after mom’s death. IT TAKES ITS TOLL on a person … you can feel like a whack-a-mole … as soon as you get the energy to stand up you just get knocked down all over again.
          David did the first of his TEEN IDOLS tour concerts (2013) here several months after Hurricane Sandy … it was the first time so many people got together and forgot everything and just really really enjoyed themselves after that disaster … a testament to just how much David could make people feel good when they were going through the worst times of their lives. I will never forget that concert…
          http://www.davidcassidy.com/fansite/ConcertPages/2013March22JoanneJ.html

          God Bless everyone here as we go through this loss together …

    Such terribly sad news!!! Like may other young girls around the world my David filled all my bedroom walls….. I loved him to bits.. I grew up in Africa, a place called Rhodesia then, now Zimbabwe and we were a bit behind the times and a bit disconnected from the rest of the world, so all i had was my posters and dreams!!! I don’t think i have ever met anyone quite like him, that hair, those eyes and that smile!!!
    He was such a beautiful man, and seemed to have a very soft caring and playful heart!!! I believe he is in a better place, singing up a storm!!
    I send my sincere condolences to all his family and may he Rest in Peace.. In my heart David Cassidy will never be forgotten……. He will be loved forever!!!!!

    David, you will be missed, but your legacy of music will live on and your memory will live on through it. I have been a fan since The Partridge Family first aired in the UK. RIP David. Loved and remembered always.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to David’ family. I had the pleasure of meeting David twice and a thrill to have him come to my hometown of Newton, NJ where I sang a few words with him on one of his most popular songs, “I Think I Love You”! David was a talented musician and actor but he brought so much more…inspiration and memories that will always be cherished by so many. He shared so much of his life and struggles and by doing so it made him so much more of a “real” person and just not the movie star. Thank you David Cassidy for encouraging us to “Come On, Get Happy”! xo

    I’ve been listening to the ‘Touch of Blue’ album which I feel really showcases David’s immense vocal range. So very soulful!
    The early songs (and there are many of them) made for great concert set-lists and ‘I Think I love You’ was arguably the ultimate pop song of all time.
    David’s self-penned ‘Lying to Myself’ is my ear-worm at the moment.
    I was fortunate to see David in concert in the UK around 20 times, once in 1973 and then between 2002 & 2012 and met him in 2004. Sadly I didn’t get to see Blood Brothers or the Rat Pack.
    Heart-breaking to see those clips of his final shows earlier this year as David was obviously struggling, but all credit to him, he kept going and his work ethic never seemed to falter.
    Such a shame David’s health deteriorated even further whilst recording his EP ‘The Songs My Father Taught Me’.
    Let’s hope we get to hear something from that in the future.
    David Cassidy was a true legend, sorely missed, but living on through his music.

      Almost 2 weeks now and I’m surprised at the level of sadness I feel, but when someone has been part of your psyche for almost 50 years it should not come as any great surprise I suppose.
      He got into your bloodstream.
      Knowing David had retired and was not touring anymore, I knew there was no chance of seeing him perform again, but just knowing he was alive and hopefully getting some enjoyment from life was enough these days but sadly…
      Will always remember those lovely smiles/grins and of course the music!!!

    I cant say I,ve followed David Cassidy through the years, for one he only performed once in Sweden and we didnt have the P show going on the television. But being my child (and first) idol, and hearing about his passing, I was shocked by my own reaction, I cried and felt so incredible sad. Listening to his songs now, brings the memory back within a sec. However I also realize he was such an underestimated singer back then (at least as I recall it) the focus were only on his looks. He really sings in the top notch area, the phrasing, the timing, the range, the tone etc.,and yet he was still so young when he sung those songs (the one I listened to), I realize now, I was too young back then to understand what a top singer he really was. Good news is, I now, today, can listen to them again and really enjoy them for the quality, and give him the admire he deserved as a singer/artist. So thankful for rediscovering his music, will be kept amongst my favourite ones of all time from now on. RIP David Cassidy and thank you for the music.

    I thought I’d post a quote about David by Eric Carmen from 2013 (Posted October 3, 2013)
    * * * * *
    David is one of the sweetest guys I’ve ever met. He was absolutely wrecked by being a “teen idol.”

    As great as it was for his bank account, he could never be taken seriously as a musician. It really messed him up, because he was MUCH more talented, as a writer, and as a singer, than anyone ever gave him credit for.

    He was, and is, a terrific guy. Life is not always kind. I wish him the best, always.

    I was 15 years old in 1970 when the Partridge Family first aired on TV. I didn’t tell any of my friends that I liked David because I thought they would laugh at me. They liked Jim Morrison, Alice Cooper, Eric Clapton, etc. I’m sorry that I never let my true feelings out. I’m in my 60’s now and I can say unequivocally that I have loved David for 47 years. And I will miss him for the rest of my life.

    Memories of Friday nights watching David Cassidy play Keith Partridge on the Partridge Family TV show and ordering pizza and Coca-Cola from the local Pizzeria and knowing there was no school the next day. It didn’t get any better than that in my youth growing up. I wish I would have had the opportunity to tell him how much joy and fun he brought into our family household. I did get the opportunity to see him in concert at NJPAC in Newark, New Jersey and during his final song of the evening which was “I Think I Love You” while he was running off stage he gave me a high five on my hand and I will never forget that kind gesture he gave me. To respond to his song “I Think I Love You” we as his fans know we loved him and his spirit and heart will live through us forever. Which would finally answer his question in the song “Could It Be Forever” with a triumph “YES’. With all the respect in the world from Jimmy Pearl of Bayonne, NJ

    My condolences to his family. I am saddened by this news. Love his music and love him even though I never saw or met him. It is hard to believe I still feel the same emotions now when I see him as when he first took my heart about 47 years ago.

    This song conveys what I feel. Saw him at MSG, singing this one. He brought the house down. I love you David for all eternity.

    I just heard about David’s passing. My deepest condolences to his entire family. I regularly feature 3 of David’s songs in my shows. When I had my regular show in Delray Beach, Florida, I had always hoped that, while I was performing one of his tunes, he would just happen by and join in. That would have been cool. The man had a great voice and could phrase a song very well. I always wanted to be “Chris” on the Partridge Family show as I was about the same age as the actors; felt he would have made a great older brother figure.

    Why am I so messed up over David Cassidy? I never got to meet him but in a way he did save my life as did the partridge family during a horrific childhood. I can’t eat or sleep and crying all the time! I know it’s ridiculous but true. Am I the only one?

    David fueled my dreams as a young girl and became my bridge to grown-up yearnings for romance. He had a beautiful voice–such range, power, expressiveness, sensuality. It drives me crazy to hear him described as “bubblegum.” He was an artist, with an artist’s sensitive (and fragile) soul. (Yes, he was also adorable beyond belief.)

    I hope there is a Heaven, and that he is there, feeling all this love and able really to take it in. I hope he is there with his mother and father, and that they too are in a place of joy.

    Thank you, David, for thrilling me and filling my imagination and expanding my heart. You had an astounding talent and made a great contribution to this world: making it more beautiful. Those of us who loved you (millions) will never forget you and will be ever grateful.

    Thank you so much for everything, David! I was a little too young to be a big David Cassidy fan during the original Partridge Family run – my friends and I were in the Shaun generation! David really began to mean a lot to me around 1999, when I saw his Behind the Music episode. I was so depressed at the time, unemployed, and his story and his triumph over adversity really inspired and comforted me. Around this time, the film of his life story also came out. Due in part to this inspiration, I was able to get back on my feet and my unemployment ended. Then a few weeks after the 9/11 attacks, David came to perform in my city. The theater was, I believe, half empty, as people were not going out much at the time. But that did not matter to David. What a generous performance David gave as he poured out his heart with a powerful voice to his fans there! He spoke of his heavy heart at the 9/11 tragedy and sang a patriotic song with great emotion. Everyone left the theater so happy. He just gave 110 percent. I will never forget him.

    David had the gift of making people happy even when they were going through their own difficult times in life. One song of his rang so true in my mind and it went “We’re one step closer to Heaven and we won’t get there till we get their together, forever, better than never,forever we better. You and Me united would be Dynamite. If I can quote a Bruce Springsteen song to sum up my feelings and emotions of David’s passing, I believe this lyric will cover it,”I’m just calling one last time,not to change your mind, but just to say, I miss you David, Good Luck, Good Bye, BOBBY JEAN….Rest in Peace my friend….Respectfully, Jimmy Pearl from Bayonne, New Jersey
