    I saw him in 1973 I’m glad I did, I’m re reading his book I think its sad that everyone wanted a piece of him, that he had dementia and he’s gone too soon. I love his music RIP David with all you dealt with you certainly deserve some peace

      I am a sane, successful, smart woman in my 50’s who is inexplicably out of the blue blown away by the news of the death of her perfect teenage heart throb. RIP David Cassidy, a name that resonated with me for over 40 years.

    My 1st love… Goodbye David Cassidy. Why has the music stopped?

    As an only child in the ‘70’s, I felt like he was my buddy… always a happy show. I remember opening a package with the red wrapped album and being so excited. I think I wore the grooves off that one!

    He was a class act all the way through the good and bad. He had a love for us true fans even after the press began to criticize him. Thank you for your kind heart and your beautiful spirit David.

    1 regret…that I never got to see him in concert.

    Good bye David. We will ‘Cherish’ the memories you gave us.

      I agree 100%! I wore that album out as well (The Partridge family). I was also an only child, got to go to a concert in Charlotte, N C (1974), it was AWESOME!
      I had to grow up early to take care of older parents, and I think I was sad a lot. But David brought soo much joy and happiness to my life. I pray he got saved and is with Jesus now, Jesus says there will be. no more tears or sadness, that’s what I want David and all of us to have.
      He was a sweet person.
      Love forever,
      I’ll never forget you,
      God Bless,
      Brenda

    I first saw you in the Partridge Family in 1972. I was awe struck by your beautiful face, hair, acting and of course your dreamy voice.
    I saw you at Shawfield Stadium, Glasgow, on worth May, 1974. It was a Friday,night.

    I was so excited. When we arrived, the place was black with people. In the venue, I was at the side, you were amazing. I’ve never heard screaming like that ever again!.

    I’ve been to several concerts over the years. Had the privilege of meeting David twice, and got the best hug ever.
    Thank you for the music. Gone, but never forgotten. There will always be a special place in my heart for you.
    Go rock some more. Crystal McRoberts, Scotland.

    Well Mr Cassidy – you were my ultimate idol since I was 11. for 4.5 decades I loved you, followed you and always admired and loved you. You brought SO much sunshine into my life and remained a constant source of sheer joy for over 45 years. I know you faced some demons in your life in recent years and fought your battles valiantly. You dont have to fight them any longer – they cant tear you apart now. You sleep well and sleep happily and with peace and joy in your soul. I dont think I love you – I know I did (and will for always). Night night and God Bless – and yes I do….. I cherish you! God speed lovely man. you take care. love you. xxxx

    I never imagined the day would come, when I’d be posting a message about David’s passing! There are no words to begin to describe the loss and heartbreak, I feel! David was the fabric of my youth—his face gracing the walls of my bedroom; his music always playing on my stereo, the endless passages in my diary about him. The oceans of tears I shed, because as a young girl, I knew I’d never meet him! Sometimes those moments seem like they just happened yesterday, but in fact, they happened a long time ago. David made me smile, brought infinite joy to my life with his music, his acting, and, his just being David Cassidy! I pray to the GOOD LORD, he will Rest in Peace, and I hope he truly did know how much he was Loved, and how the World was better place, because he was one of its most Glorious Creations. I Love You, David! ♥️

    David was my first teen idol crush.Watched the Partridge Family faithfully and continued watching him in various projects throughout his career. Had the chance to meet him when he came to Columbus Ohio for a promo tour of his album,Lyin To Myself. Had the chance to see David and Shaun perform in Blood Brothers. My heart is broken as I sit here and listen to his music.He is at peace now. Love you always,Lydia Kemerling,Columbus Ohio.

    Such heartbreaking news it was to learn that David had passed away, broke many hearts around the world .I feel like I’ve known him all my life and in a way that’s true
    .
    Will never forget that night we went to see him in concert we were lucky enough to be within touching him at the front, I managed to touch his boot and hand and look up and see his beautiful smile and for that split second, I felt like David was mine and nobody else’s.
    Me and my friend hardly spoke a word all the way home, in fact how we managed to find our way to the train station to get back home I will never know .. I didn’t wash my hand for weeks after that haha!

    David took a piece of all our hearts with him, he’s such a special person, so gifted, talented, caring not to mention adorable. He could sing any song and make it his own his voice was so unique …
    His music will live on forevermore, and be in my heart too, so he will always be here
    God Bless you and keep you safe in his loving arms.

    P.S Saw this on the internet a while ago.
    God saw you getting tired
    And a cure was not to be
    So he put His arms around you
    And whispered, “Come to me.”

    With tearful eyes we watched you
    As you slowly slipped away
    And though we loved you dearly
    We couldn’t make you stay.

    Your golden heart stopped beating
    Your tired hands put to rest
    God broke our hearts to prove to us
    He only takes the best.

      I too am 5 years younger then David . Had every picture from teen magazines on the wall of my room. Got to see David in Blood Brothers in LosAngeles in the 90’s. I still had butterflies just like when I wasa teen. Loved him always. Rest in peace dear one. No more pain. May god hold you and bless you always.

    I’ve been a fan of David Cassidy for so long it’s almost like I’ve known him all these years. Yet, I have never met him. It hurts like crazy to know that David is no longer with us, but I am trying my best to go on with life as usual. But when I go online and see all these websites announcing David’s death, it feels unreal. It’s impossible to imagine the name “David Cassidy” and the word “dead”in the same sentence. I know that death is something that eventually happens to all of God’s creatures, but David just had so much life in him! It will take a long time to come to terms with his passing.

    One thing I think would be great to see in the near future is a televised David Cassidy tribute concert. It would be great to see artists in rock, pop, and country music all come together and perform David’s songs in honor of his memory. I don’t know if this will ever happen or not, but it would be a great thing to see. I think it would lift everybody’s spirits. Here’s hoping!

    I’ve been watching the 2002 Live in Concert filmed in Glasgow. A fantastic
    night and such a polished performance. Hollywood Nights was very special, I thought.
    So many wonderful memories to cherish, thanks to David.

    Devastating loss. Of course I watched the Partridge Family and loved the show as a child. But DC was obviously also a really sensitive person and a seriously underrated singer and actor. The Facebook site is so busy it is obvious that he was much loved around the world. Rest peacefully David – yours was a job very well done indeed.

    So sad for David but I’m sure he has escaped from further dementia which can only be a blessing. I’m sure he’ll be playing music in heaven with his friends from the music business and his parents can make it up to him for all the heart ache he carried with him from his childhood. His face when he smiled was the most beautiful and I thank him for being part of my teenage years and beyond. He was loved by so many. God bless and happy trails in heaven David🙏💛🙏. XxX

    I was lucky enough to see David in concert in Las Vegas in 1998. I was still reeling from a pretty rough divorce, and was trying to liven my life back out of the despair I’d been in.
    I got dressed to the nines, and my date and I had front row seats. David was performing amazingly, and as he was looking over the crowd he saw me and smiled right at me. Then a few moments later he walked over while he was singing and reached down and shook my hand. I have never felt more beautiful and more surprised at the same time in my life. He seemed to see right into me and that I needed that boost. It was delightful, and such fun. He has been part of my life since i was a little girl. And I’m so glad he shared his gifts with us.

His posters adorned my walls as a love struck teenager and just last year I was lucky enough to see him in concert in Florida It gave me chills and tears to see him and hear him sing “I Think I Love You” just like he did 50 years ago. I will miss him and always keep his memory alive through his music. God bless you, David on your journey.

    I’m so hurt, that I took sometime to just daydream, reflect, and I still hurt, and miss him, I met David not once over 4 different times, we talked, he said he read my letter, he posed for pictures with me each time, and I was nervous wreck, but once I saw him, a calmness just came over me, David had a heart of gold, he even posed for a pic with my ten ur old brother at the time, in N.Y.city, he was at the theater, staring in Joseph and amazing technicolor dreamcoat. David gave his time to me, and his kindness will never be forgotten. I have told people these stories for many years now. People responded with so many different responses, they were all wonderful, but the one I remember the most is he looked like a likeable guy, who could sing and act. Our David Cassidy was loveable, and to honor his memory, he will always be in my prayers, and I will continue to share my David Cassidy stories, because he deserves all the credit, for making the world a happy place with all he gave to us. Felicia, please don’t take to long of a break, I need you, and the fans like your posts, and you are a true friend, and a loyal true David Cassidy fan. Yvonne I liked your post, you are lucky to meet Sue Shifrin, I liked her when David married her. David would want us all to be happy. We must find it within ourselves to celebrate David’s life, and Cmon and get happy.

      I just listened to “Soft As A Summer Shower” on YouTube. I think it’s one of the prettiest songs David ever recorded. My Mom and Dad liked the song, too. This was the first David Cassidy song I listened to since David died, and I found myself holding back tears. Seeing the pictures of David in that video and hearing that song was bittersweet. Thank God for YouTube! Otherwise we would never be able to see concerts that David did way back when. We wouldn’t be able to see old interviews from those days. We wouldn’t be able to hear that breathy voice and that adorable, infectious, trademark laugh. We would miss seeing his sparkling eyes, glowing g smile, and long, shaggy hair. Partridge Family DVD’s are a good thing to watch during this time, too. Right now it might make us sad, but eventually, things will get better and the sadness will ease. I doubt if the sadness will ever be completely gone, though. Years from now, we will all still be missing David. I know a lot of people still miss Elvis Presley, and he’s been gone for 40 years. I know we’ll all get through this. Time has a way of healing all wounds.

        Thank you Kelly. Beautiful post. It is true I know I will never forget David. The hurt I feel now will eventually subside, but there will always be a small emptiness in my heart. I have ordered the PF DVD. It will help me heal I hope. I have downloaded many of his solo work and I am enjoying them every day. It helps put a smile in my face listening to that velvety smooth, powerful voice of his. Sigh.

    I am so glad and privileged to have seen David in concert when he toured the uk in 2004. My one regret is I never got to meet him.
    I am one of the younger fans, I was born in 73! So didn’t discover David until the 80’s!
    I am still in total shock of his passing, completely heart broken 💔
    In the early hours of 22nd of November, I woke up and needed a drink, something I never do!, For some reason I had to check my phone, i had to see if there was any update on David, and that’s when I found out he had died, it was the exact same time I had woken up!!!
    RIP David, we will miss you so much. God bless ❤

I miss David terribly and can´t stop crying. A week and a day without our beautiful boy around this world. I know he is no suffering anymore and he is free pain now but still I am so sad.
      I know is going to take so long untill I smile again.

    Dearest David, “Saying Goodbye (it’s not easy). Thank you for all the joy and happiness you gave me during my early teens when I was struggling. Your music, your gorgeous eyes and face, your PF days and beyond helped make my days so much brighter. It hurts so so bad. I am so heartbroken. I truly regret not following you throughout your career. You had an incredibly, successful career. What an amazing talent you are. But most of all and the most important of all is that you were a beautiful, kind-hearted, caring and loving human being. Loving people like you are hard to find these days. The world will dearly miss you as will I. But you will live forever through the amazing body of work you left us. May God embrace you in his arms, and may you find peace . Happy trails in Heaven, David. Love you.

    Kim Carnes was a wonderful friend of yours. I love her tribute to you.

    on this website all the time. David Cassidy
    fans unite! We will beat these blues!
    Good night Denice! After reading your long

    Keeping David’s family in my prayers during this difficult time. David Cassidy! Wow! Your posters from Tiger Beat were all over my bedroom wall. Being a teenager in the 70’s was great, we had you, Donny Osmond and Bobby Sherman! David, I was going to marry you! I unfortunately never got to see you in concert, but I do have your original “Cherish” album and the original “The Partridge Family Sound Magazine.” I listened to your music for hours and loved watching the Partridge Family! It’s so hard to believe that you’re gone. Fly High David and Sing, Sing Sing with the heavenly angels! Hugs

    David,

    ….I watched all of the Partridge Family Episodes. I saw you act in other shows. All of your music touched my soul. You will be missed by so many people. Hard to realize you are no longer with us. Here is a poem I remembered that seems to fit.
    ~~~~
    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    A poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye
    ~~~~
    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there, I do not sleep
    I am a thousand winds that blow
    I am the diamond glints on snow
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain
    I am the gentle autumn rain
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight
    I am the soft stars that shine at night
    Do not stand at my grave and cry
    I am not there, I did not die.
    ~~~~
    I hope you have found the peace you didn’t always have in life.
    ~~~~

    Thanks Felicia, you really reached out to me, and I will always remember how you helped me to feel and deal with losing David. I know it it will almost 1year of our friendship. I needed a true David Cassidy fan, as my friend, it didn’t happen in 1970s , yes in school David was the main topic, all day long, and let me tell you , my school he was always hiding somewhere, either on someone’s locker or inside someone’s notebook, or glued to a book, and I even got teased from a girl in class behind me, and I bet she loved David herself, everyone did, and that was high school. So it was here I meet Felicia , and now I have a lifelong friend, who is truly a David Cassidy fan like me, And in all reality, now we are all friends,sharing the life we had with David Cassidy, would David be happy for us, I think so.

      Dear Denice,
      I feel complete. Your post touched my heart!
      I remember being in high school and being so
      shy and feeling all alone. I remember David being
      my first crush. He had to be special to love someone
      for over 40 years. He was a good role model. Which
      brings me back to this website and to my very dear
      friend Denice. I have a clear mind, a joyful heart,
      because I know God has a better plan for David
      Cassidy. Death is a part of life . Denice we still
      have this wonderful beautiful website where
      we can share our memories , like you did. We
      still can be David Cassidy fans and express
      ourselves even though he is gone he lives on
      in spirit. David’s been gone for a week. It was
      a hard week to get through. There is hope at
      the end of despair. Life is to be embraced !
      David would want all his fans to go on living
      and enjoy their lives. He is not suffering anymore
      he has gone home to be with the Lord! My point
      is when I read your post Denice, it transformed
      me into a better state of mind. I cherish our
      friendship. I am glad I made you feel better,
      the feeling is mutual. Thank you for sharing
      that beautiful David Casssidy memory. Denice
      you have a blessed day! God bless !

    Dear David
    The first record I ever bought was when i was a 9 year old in 1972 and it was Daydreamer A side and The Puppy Song B side. I played that record all the time for weeks and weeks and you were my comfort during my sad times. Your eyes shone with compassion and your smile was like a warm summer day. That was it I thought. That’s the man i’m going to marry! Of course that never happened but I did get to see you in concert three times. I was lucky enough in more recent years at the Hammersmith concert to be standing a couple of metres from the front and with no one else in front of me I was captivated as you sang your ballad directly to me! Another time in Liverpool at a later date you recognised me and chatted directly to me about the late John Lennon. Those moments are very precious to me and i’ll hold then close to my heart. To us it feels you have gone too soon and i think most of us are still in deep shock but time is a great healer and we are all praying for you to rest peacefully. We will always love you, you will never be forgotten and this is not a goodbye its a ‘see ya David’ sleep tight we’ll meet again someday xxx

    My tweet to David and Danny said how happy I was to find them on Twitter. And,it said that they were like brothers to me. My tweet was the last tweet that David liked. How sweet it was that he took the time to like it. He also retweeted and liked comments from other fans on that day. He did this after his interview aired with Dr. Phil. I lived in Fort Lauderdale not far from him. And, I really wanted to meet him, but, I never ran into him. He was like a brother to all of us. It hurt us deeply that our brother was hurting. He made us happy. And, he sacrificed so much to bring us a lifetime of happiness. I Think I Love You and I Woke Up In Love This Morning were not written by David. But, it was David that made them come alive in our hearts. His voice pulled us into the song and made us a part of it. It is almost impossible to hear these songs and not sing along. And, see Davids beautiful smile. He wanted so much for us to be happy, so,we owe it to him now to try to be happy. Even if we do miss him so much. My prayers to his family, friends and fans.

      I love this! You are absolutely right! He was such a kind and sweet man! I remember when I lived in Florida and he was in town promoting his self titled album with the song “Lyin’ to myself” on it. I called in and got through, it was my 21st birthday 11/20/1990. He was so sweet, kind and funny. When I told them it was my 21st birthday, naturally he wished me a happy birthday as well as the DJ’s did. He offered to take me out for my first drink, because I was legal ya know lol. It never happend, but I am ok with that. His sweet personality was more than enough for me 🙂 I never did get to see him perform live, even when he came here to Minnesota. It broke my heart and still breaks my heart he is gone now, but he is forever in my heart.

    Been a fan since the early 70s, saw David then and that is one of my most vivid memories of my young teen years. Then saw David perform in Time and Blood Brothers and various tours of the UK, and on each and every occasion he gave his all. He certainly was a big part of my life.
    The tributes given to David are so touching and well deserved.
    Sleep well now David free from pain and demons.

    Thank you to all the people overseeing this site. It is a great support. I am so very sad he is gone and can’t stop singing, humming all the songs I know. In my sleep, when I wake. I was not a girl who went to concerts, screamed or went mad about anything or anyone, but I always loved David’s music and his personality which came across in everything he did.

    Truly a lovely person with great talent. So I am glad for all the friends and family that he has had loving him over the years. That is the most important thing not money or fame. So thank you to everyone who loved him and gave him joy in his life. God bless.

    Tonight i’m just speechless, you caught me by surprise
    The note that you left me, i just can’t believe my eyes
    Now you’re gone, nothing can bring you back, and it’s tearing me apart
    I’d give all i have for one last chance to be sheltered in your arms

    These are lyrics from Sheltered in your Arms taken from his Then and Now CD.

    David has been part of my life for over 40 years, since I was 10. There will always be a special place in my heart for him. He will live on in his fans. A superb actor, singer, performer, producer, director and genuine person whose charismatic charm and beauty captivated us all from day one. David was a one off and he will be sorely missed but his life will live on through his music. God Bless you David, words can not express how much I miss you. Happy trails.

    It’s been a week since David died, and it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. I was just saying to my Mom that right now it feels like I’m dreaming all of this and any minute now, I’m going be awake and I’ll find out that none of it really happened. I’m sure everybody here feels that way. I get out of bed every morning and get some things done, then I pick up my smartphone and go online and see all these websites announcing David’s death. I still can’t grasp the fact that this actually happened. Thank God for this website! Everybody here feels the same way I do, and it’s comforting to know that I can come on here and not have to worry about any online bullies attacking me, unlike YouTube, where I have encountered several bullies. Some of these people have actually ganged up on me, so I will not be posting on those webpages anymore. This website is like a safe haven. It’s comforting to talk to my Mom and Dad about this, too. They know how much I love David and they’re sorry that he’s gone. It helps to talk to people who are understanding and supportive. I will be avoiding any websites where online bullies will attack people like me who love David. I don’t need that kind of treatment. Death is a serious matter and it just doesn’t make sense to me how some people can be so cruel towards David, his family, friends, and fans. I know I won’t find that here or in my own family. One day, this whole thing will seem more real. I’m pretty sure of this.

      Hi Kelly

      Don’t worry xx it could take a while for us to get over the shock as our idol was a bit part of out teen years and for many of us: many years beyond that. The loss of dear David Cassidy will feel similar to losing a cherished member of the family or a partner or close friend. It won’t feel any different at all. We are all going through a bereavement. Regarding the bullies on youtiube in the last half hour i’ve just had two removed for their nasty words. Its not what we need at this time..they are losers! Obviously very jealous that a huge collective of women are pouring out their feelings and love for David. If I see any more rest assured I will get them removed immediately xx take care huni xx

    David’s passing has really been very upsetting to me. He was so much of my growing years and beyond. May he rest in peace.

    I was fortunate enough to see him perform in “Joseph” (I went to see it 4 times!) It was my first time seeing him perform live and I’m happy that it was in a theatre/play setting; where he started! I remember taking my Mom and we had front row, stay right seats. She kept saying, I can’t believe how close he is! My persistance paid off because on the 4th time, I got to meet him! He came out and went to his limo; he opened the window and started signing. I got a to see his beautiful smile up close and a kiss on the cheek as well. I then saw him in Blood Brothers with Shaun; what an amazing performance from both of them!

    It would be 2009 before I actually got to see a concert. That was at the Queens Center and then in subsequent years at BB King’s in NY.

    I will always carry those memories with me and his music will never die.

    Thank you, David, and I hope you are up there jammin’ with John Lennon.

    Peace to all.

    Struggling to find the words but here goes…David Cassidy I’ve loved you since I was 10 years old, when you first came into my life. I played your records over and over again watched you on the Partridge Family and I had your posters all over my wall. I eventually got to see you for the first time in November 2001, oh what a night that was! I’ve travelled the country and to the US and Canada to see you so many times and it’s been truly amazing. Through you I’ve made the most wonderful lifelong friends and had so much fun and so many magical moments & memories.
    Thank you so much for your beautiful music which I know will live on forever, no one has a voice quite like yours! You brought love, light
    and laughter into so many of our lives. On a personal note, thank you for being so lovely to me on those occasions when I met you, for that 10 year girl, it was something I could only have dreamed of. In later times being greeted like old friends. The most memorable being a lovely warm hug & kiss outside GMTV on a freezing cold November morning, I will never forget that! 😀 ❤ They say you should never meet your idols, well in your case, they got that wrong! I don’t think you really know how much you were truly loved and appreciated. Thinking of your family and all your fans around the world who I know are grieving for you. Forever in my heart, such a beautiful soul. Shine bright David the newest star in the night sky. Still can’t quite believe I’m saying this RIP David Cassidy, fly high! 😢😢😢 xx #heartbroken

    I was so sad to hear about the passing of David. I’ve been a fan since The Partridge Family days. My fave song was always…Could It Be Forever. I have always considered David Cassidy the last of the great teen idols. I got to meet David a few times here in Houston. The last time I saw him in concert here in 2013, I got to talk with him again. Katie Cassidy I want you to know, I told David how great you are on Arrow and he said, “Isn’t she fabulous.” He lit up Katie and was very proud of you. I just wanted to let you know that.
    Take care Katie,

    His smile was infectious, his face beautiful. I will miss him, He has no more pain and is at peace. He was a gift to us all.

    Love you David.

    Still so sad, I can’t believe David is gone. He was a very beautiful man and so talented. What I particularly loved was how caring he was of others, it was a dream of mine to meet him but I never did. I don’t think he got the respect he deserved for his career. At the very least, he should be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was an American national treasure. To only call him a teen idol doesn’t do justice to him, he was multi-talented. Sounds like there’ll be a public memorial to him in the future which I would dearly love to attend but won’t be able to as I’m in Australia. When this happens, I hope to see pictures of it. There have been lovely tributes to him by family members, friends and others. Everyone who knew him or met him loved him, that is loud and clear. He was my teen idol, there was no one else.
    I will always love and never forget him. Continuing to think of his family and friends at this very difficult time.

My only consolation is that he is now at peace, no longer in pain. I think life was very unkind to him, he didn’t deserve what happened to him. I will always miss him.

    I have moved on from mourning to celebrating the joy David brought me for so many years. I had seen him in concert in 1972 and in 2008. I also saw him in EFX (my favorite DC performance) , At the Copa and Rat Pack is Back. He may have only been 67, but he lived an extraordinary life. And yet it is reported that his final words to family were “so much wasted time”. Those words keep goung through my mind as they are very profound. He would not want us to waste time mourning, he woukd want us to go on and be happy. He is now resting peacefully and has left us so many happy memories. I will CHERISH the memories and be thankful for all the joy he has given me.

    The Partridge Family was a big part of my childhood, I watched every episode, subscribed to Tiger Beat, had the posters in my room and owned every album. Like everyone else who has posted, I’m still in shock that David is actually gone, we thought he’d be with us forever, but alas, he’s gone far too soon. But I’m so happy that I was of the age to watch the Partridge Family and be a fan of everyone on the show, including David, and then to follow his career for all these years. He was an amazing, talented man, acting, singing, writing, he did it all and he did it so well. He brought such joy to all of us and we have so many wonderful memories, as Michael Stanley, another of my favorite musicians (from NE Ohio) said in one of his songs, “all you get to keep are the memories, you gotta make the good ones last.” Thank you David, for all the wonderful memories I have of you, they will last forever. May God bless you and grant you peace and joy.

    I am so glad that I was able to see David perform one last time at the Canyon Club in L. A.
    in February. And my heart is truly broken to know I will never have that opportunity again.
    David was a truly gifted performer beyond anyone—the COMPLETE package. He will continue to be with us through our memories of him & the incredible legacy he left behind.
    Thank you so much for all of those memories, David. I hope you can now have the peace & serenity you longed for all of your life.
    RIP David & know that you are greatly missed.
    May his family find comfort in knowing that he is now in a better place, free from the “ills” that kept him from doing that which he loved most.
    My thoughts & prayers are with you at this most difficult time.

    I’m like everyone else that’s posted. I had his posters all over my walls, I have the dvds of all the seasons of the partridge family, I have books they made which were like a episode of the partridge family. The man I married reminded me of him. He will be sadly missed. And he was a great singer, who didn’t get enough acknowledgement for that because he was on the tv series. And I loved that tv series! Rest In Peace.

His musical genius will over come time and will remain immortal. RIP. David will live on forever through his timeless music. In Sikhism we believe that David has only let go of his body but his soul is immortal. Do not mourn him or be sad for him. Rejoice that he is now free and singing with all of Gods angels.

I have two close friends that are Sikh so I understand your faith. There is a Medium on youtube who was talking about David Cassidy and i’m sure this will comfort his fans greatly when they listen to it. It explains what happened after his passing.

    Your first teenage love lasts. I’m 60 years old and surprisingly having a hard time dealing with David’s passing. I just watched the rebroadcast of his interview with Dr. Phil. It broke my heart. I had the absolute delight of meeting him as a TSA agent a few years back. I went right back to that 12 yr old. I asked him why he didn’t answer my letters, why we never married! We had a few laughs & he couldn’t have been more gracious. He was a special person. Love to you always David…

    I don’t think any celebrity’s death has affected me the way David Cassidy’s has. I can remember when Andy Gibb passed away back in 1988 and when John Denver was killed in a plane crash back in 1997. Both men were also 70’s icons who died too soon. Andy Gibb had just turned 30 when he died. John Denver was 53. I remember their music from my childhood, and I was saddened by their deaths, but David Cassidy’s death is much harder for me to deal with. I feel like I’ve been punched in the stomach! I know that David’s soul is free and he is enjoying all the wonders of Heaven, but it’s just so hard to let go! Even though I’ve never met David, I feel like I’ve lost a friend. I am 18 years younger than David (I’m 49. David was 67.) and I always had a feeling that I would outlive him. I just didn’t think that would happen now. As I mentioned in an earlier post, time heals all wounds. The day will come when we will all be able to think about David, listen to his music, and watch him on TV with a smile instead of tears. That day may come sooner for some than it will for others, though. I’m just taking this a day at a time.

      I’m 49 too and I feel the same way you do about his passing. When the Partridge Family was on TV, I was too young to notice him as being sexy. I just thought that David Cassidy was cool, and all the Partridges were cool and also very funny. And I loved their music. David Cassidy was not my “first crush” either.

      Now, I never thought David Cassidy would out live me mind you because there’s a big age difference, but for some reason I always knew in the back of my mind when he did die someday, I would feel something. I certainly didn’t think his death would be so soon. And sure enough I did feel something. I felt like a wonderful piece of my life was taken away. I actually cried. I can’t figure it out. He was a connection to my younger self maybe? I also know that he is the only celebrity I will feel this way about — the only one.

Obviously that isn’t possible as I’m here in the UK and all of you are scattered round the world, so I’m sending you all a huge virtual hug and saying let’s just look up to the sky with the biggest smile (and definitely lots of tears) and say ‘Thank you David’. xxx

      Last night, I did go outside to look up at the sky, which was full of stars, and I had tears in my eyes. There isn’t a doubt in my mind that David is in Heaven and we’ll all see him there someday.

    You should get the letter I wrote you last
    Friday , either today or tomorrow. I am making
    progress by getting feelings down on paper.
    I am settled in for the evening, I am doing my
    wash. Just ate my supper. I took my cat to the
    vet today, she has a bladder infection. I finally
    got all her medication under control. She turns
    20 on December 1. The vet said she still has
    a lot of spunk in her. I spent the whole day
    with her. Anyway I wish you a peaceful
    evening! Not much happening here. I cancelled
    my exercise class and did not go to my
    meditation class. I keep watching videos of
    David on U-Tube. It is helpful! Denice you
    take care! Every day I think of something
    I am grateful for. I am always grateful for
    this website! I wish you a good night and
    a blessed day tomorrow!

    I simply loved David Cassidy in the 1970s. I grew up with his music “could be forever, How can I be sure, Cherish” and the Partridge Family in the UK. I remember when he played at the White City Shepherds Bush, UK. His fans simply adored him. I recently cleared out my shed at home and found David Cassidys photos from the 1970s. His death has brought back so many wonderful memories of his timeless music. It is Davids time to rest in eternal peace now. He cherished us and made us happy. It is Davids turn now to rest and be happy. Sweet angel of mine sleep well and rest.

David how we all miss you dearly…but I also know that you are in a better place than this one.

      Dear Christine, Don McLean – vincent. ( STARRY STARRY NIGHT) eyes that watched this world and can’t forget… A sad haunting song a soul searching song. Sometimes we can have all the people in the world and still be alone, the heart craves for what the heart craves. A smile can hide a thousand tears… David had love in his life and he knew he had the love of the many fans all over the world. But the one love he wanted I feel perhaps he never quite could reach, and it haunted him. David was a sensitive caring and loving man who should still be here today living his life happy and healthy , that is what we all wanted for him sadly it was not to be. Let us remember David for the great sense of humour that he did have and for that beautiful.smile, he touched so many and we will always remember he will never be forgotten…

  108. Posted November 29, 2017 at 6:15 am | Permalink

    I’m just thinking of ideas of what we fans can do as our own tribute to our late great David Cassidy and I thought well maybe the pop world might hopefully do a tribute but we can too! There’s nothing stopping us and i don’t see why we cant translate the emotional upset of his loss into something tangible so that we can show the world how much he was loved and thought about! and it will help the healing process too i’m sure. So the first question i’m going to put out there is can anyone here sing? or dance? and are you brave enough to go on stage and face an audience? Personally i can sing as i’ve done it on stage before. Also what do you all think about this?

    • Posted November 29, 2017 at 6:28 am | Permalink

        Who would be the beneficiary of the money made from the concert you are suggesting putting together and travelling around the uk with? Valid question I think Lady Sibina Heywood. I am sure maybe sometime in the future an official stage show maybe thought about by the Cassidy family themselves.

Well he did. David was a peaceful person, he would of wanted us to feel peace of him passing. David is in his home of eternity, nomore hurting, surrounded by God’s beauty.

    Thank you Madeleine….I believe David was a beautiful soul that perhaps never reached his true potential …which is true of all of us as we go through this life taking time and people for granted and letting circumstances or setbacks hold us from our own potential. Why is it that it takes a painful loss to wake most of us up?We can all learn something from David’s life….that is ,that life is very short and unpredictable, no one can see what’s in their future. I wish for David’s family peace, love and many blessings as they heal and go forward.

    Love you David

    I was born at the right time. I was 8-12 years old when “The Partridge Family” originally aired on ABC from 1970-74. Friday nights at 8:30pm was a great way to get the weekend started after a long week at P.S 89 in the Bronx. On Saturday mornings in 1971 my mother would give me a quarter and I would go to the local candy store on Astor Ave. and purchase a pack of PF trading cards and also seeing those teen magazines on the racks with David’s photo front and center on all of them. That same year my parents gave me the “Up to Date” album as a gift and I can honestly tell you I played the heck out of it. So many wonderful memories. Thank you David Cassidy for playing a big part in providing me with a really cool childhood. I’m only sorry your world got too big for you. You did know and acknowledge that you were well loved and appreciated and you showed the same for all of us. You were a blessing as we were blessed to know you. You will never really be gone as I will continue to watch downloaded episodes of the PF and listen to your songs on my iPod. That will keep me young. Thank you. Rest in peace. Sincerely, Tony.

      Nice summary, Tony. Think we’ve all got a similar weekend path from those days. Mine was, of course, the Friday night show, starting the weekend. Followed by piano lesson Saturday morning and — if that newsstand was out of Tiger Beat or 16, I’d be crushed! Such wonderful memories frozen in time from the entertainer he was to all fans.

    I am so sorry for his family and for all of his friends, the ones who knew and loved Mr. Cassidy. I have read about how, even when times were dark for him and not going well, that he had a hopefulness, an optimism that things would get better if he just continued to try. He seems to have wanted to be happy and to simply spread joy to others from all accounts. It is a great loss for those he loved and who loved him. Having lost family members myself, I can say that they live on in our hearts and minds. Mr. Cassidy will be no different once the pain of his loss subsides and the memories of the loving person he was remains. I am sorry for your loss.

    David my heart is still breaking since you passed away. I just can’t believe he has gone. I grew up watchimg the Partridge Family when i was 11. Then in my teenage years the more i watched Keith Partridge i began to.realise he was becomimg my first crush. His beautiful smile and his beautiful eyes made me melt. His voice was beautiful aswell and his music i loved. Though the years i.bought every magazine and hung posters on my bedroom wall, even had the DAVID CASSIDY T-Shirt can honestly say i eventually wore it so much there was hardly any picture of David left on it. My one biggest regret is that i didnt get to see him in one of his concert”s. He was a beautiful sole and i adored him so. It just’s HURTS SO BAD loosing him. I have never ever cried so much at loosing other singers like i have David Cassidy. Thank you for the music David. I will always remember you and have you in my heart always and will always CHERISH you and Your Beautiful songs forever. R.I.P. My Sweet Angel. xxx♡

    when i listened to Craig`s interview, it did give an insight to how David`s health had deteriorated , how tired he really had become and out of breath when recording in Chicago earlier this year, so sad he is not with us anymore, playing his songs and watching his videos, does still make me smile, and thank, we had such a man as David with a great talent who gave me such joy and still does, he is with me in his songs, which i find a great comfort in, and being able to pay tribute on his website, helps to give you a chance to put your feelings into words, sometimes i cannot believe he is not with us, i do remember David more in his younger days and early 2000s when he toured a great deal, this is how i remember him, he may have gone to the angels in the sky but he will never be forgotten.

    Dear Fellow Fans,

    I hope you read the important message Sue Shifrin put out for us fans…..they are selling David’s unauthorized memorabilia online through Facebook. But I would like to add that Amazon although they are a fine company, are carrying retailers that sell David’s biographies for a kings ransom. As much as $ 2,379,89 New or Used. This is making an unfair profit off of David’s fans and his memory. You can see the retailers involved on Amazon. Please lets all work together so that all of David’s fans can enjoy what he has written, produced and or created without being taken advantage of…..thank you

    All my Love to David’s Family

      That is such bad taste and quite honestly, we are in the main, middle aged and not only parents but grandparents as well.
      I could not comprehend that any David Cassidy fan would want to wear something like that. These merchandisers are greedy opportunists, who want to cash in when people are feeling emotional, but the ones who buy the stuff are as bad.
      If people didn’t purchase the stuff there would be no market for them.

Let the Cassidy family have what they deserve. David would wanted Katie and Beau looked after. David had trouble s and life comes with it, why take of something that is not yours. Us fans care. Thank you Margaret, I got the message from you to me, I did my prayers during that hour, David passed over into his life now in eternity. You are a special fan, and you always let us know what was important, thank you mother hen, may we all heal together.

    One thing about David that I love, and I know that many other fans love, is his laugh. I have read many online comments from fans, saying that David’s laugh is so cute, unique, and infectious. I don’t know of anybody else who’s laugh even sounds remotely like David’s. On YouTube, there is a video that features bloopers from The Partridge Family, and there’s a cute scene where David comes skipping into the bedroom where Shirley Jones and Susan Dey are. He says, “Mom!” and then you hear that adorable David Cassidy giggle. Just hearing that laugh makes me feel good. They say that laughter is the very best medicine, and I believe that to be true. David had such a sunny and happy personality that it’s hard to not feel good when you hear him laugh.

    For someone who followed Van Halen, hard rock and heavy metal, I have to say this guy was a mega talent. This guy was the American Idol and these people on TV or wannabes that are trying to be something they are not, some contrived act that will only last 5minutes.
    I started kindergarten in 73 and I remember all those Partridge family lunchboxes that the girls brought in. That guy was all over the place as we were growing up. Mega talent, big star. He should go into rock n roll hall of fame. God bless DC you were a true artist for the people and always gave your all.

      Paul, thanks for your comment. It is sure nice to hear that somebody with your tastes in music acknowledge the great talent David had. David was huge, but unfortunately nobody seemed to take him seriously because of his “teen idol” label. But I’m telling you, just listening to “David Cassidy” the cd, and so many other great albums he certainly was a “mega talent” like you mentioned. IMO the most underrated artist of all time. AND yes he should be in the rock n roll HOA!!

    The Partridge Family aired the year after I was born, but I became a fan through the reruns when I was old enough to watch the show or remember it anyway and still a fan later years in life. I remember watching the show when I was what, 5, and yes David was my favorite 🙂. The song “I think I love you” has been stuck in my head since he passed away….I guess its better than “Come in Eileen” being stuck in my head lol.

    I remember on my 21st Birthday (11/20/90) David was promoting his 1st album in 18 years with the song, Lyin’ to myself. I was living in Florida at the time, he was on a local radio station and I called in. I don’t remember exactly everything we talked about but I do remember he had such great energy And his laugh, I loved his laugh. And how sweet and funny he was to me during that call and for him to wish me a happy Birthday was the highlight of my day. I will never forget that or his kindness. I wish sometime in my life I could have met him in person and thank him for that day. But today, all I can do is pray for peace and comfort for David’s family. I am extremely sad that he passed away.

    I’m so sorry people are trying to bank off David and his legacy.

    David Bruce Cassidy music and performances gave us that heaven here on earth feeling in our hearts. In one of Bruce Springsteen songs he asks the question “I want to know if love is real? Hearing David”s voice, that question gets answered because you heard the love and it was real when he sang to us. Respectfully, Jim Pearl

    David Cassidy .. where to start.
    I was lucky enough to be born in 1956 and be the perfect age of 13 when David first appeared on screen. David was my first love, he has been in my heart and in my life for 47 years. The teenage bedroom walls plastered with posters and magazine pages may have gone, but his music is with me every single day. He helped me through some extremely tough years, his smile, his voice, his magic … there will never be another David.
    The news he had lost his fight devastated me as it did so many fans, my heart broke, and then a piece of it went with him.
    I hope he knew how truly and deeply loved he was as the thousands of comments shared have shown.
    I will love him forever, he will be in our hearts forever, and I know now he’s free from earths constraints, he’s flying high, a truly beautiful soul making heaven an even more beautiful place.
    RIP David .. I’ll continue to be a Daydreamer .. dreaming of the day when we all catch up with you again and can tell you in person what an amazing difference you made and will continue making to our lives. Love you xxx

    The question of death – whats happen with David and our loved dead ones now… the Bible gives the answer: (I can’t say it in english-words so well, but my english Bible can…)

    “For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward; but the memory of them is lost. Their love and their hate and their envy have already perished, and they have no more for ever any share in all that is done under the sun.”
    (Ecclesiastes 9, 5+6)

    The Bible calls the death = sleep

    “But we would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep… For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the cloud to meet the Lord in the air; and so will shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these word.”
    (1. Thess. 4, 13-18)

    Because Jesus died for us, we can have this hope an believe in Him!

    Love, Elke

I told her it was hard for me to get them, as a tear started, I shared a story about David, and she said o that is nice and she really thanked me.

It made me happy back when I was 12 and it will make me happy for the rest of my life. Listening to “Cry” and Ain’t No Sunshine from his Then and Now CD, and I am in love with his mature voice. It brought goose bumps and a huge smile to my face. I am so grateful he graced this earth. The world was very very lucky and now we are grateful that he left us so so much of his art to enjoy for the rest of our lives. Thank you David! I love you from the bottom of my heart.

    I’m feeling somewhat better now, and the shock of David’s death is slowly wearing off, but I know it will be awhile before the initial sadness is gone. As I mentioned before the sadness will always linger, but depending on how the grief is dealt with, it will be different for everybody.

    I mentioned in an earlier post that my Dad is in poor health and is in hospice care. An older cousin of mine has come down from Smith River, CA to help my Mom and me take care of him. She used to work in a nursing home, so she knows a thing or two about caring for the elderly. Having her here has been a blessing. My Mom and Dad’s 53rd wedding anniversary is December 5th, and we’re all pretty sure it may be the last wedding anniversary he will ever see. It might also be the last Christmas he sees, too. I’m trying hard to get into the Christmas spirit, but I’m just not feeling it. It’s bad enough that the world just lost David Cassidy, and now my Dad is dying. I’m trying to be cheerful while my cousin is here, and not be a Gloomy Gus, but it’s hard to be cheerful when your heart is broken. There are times when we’re all sharing funny stories and laughing together, and that helps ease the sadness, but it’s just a ver time right now after David Cassidy’s recent death, and with my Dad in his final days.

    I know things will get better, but it just takes time. Keeping family close and having a strong faith in God is very helpful. I hope everybody else will have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It’s a sad time right now, but I know we can all get through this.

    Jimmy Stewart is on TV as I type this … they are playing an old episode of The Tonight Show -Starring Johnny Carson. I just recently was reading an interview with David from back when he was in the role in the musical TIME (in the 1980s) on the stage in Britain (taking over the role from original actor/singer Cliff Richard) … Here’s what David said …
    ‘If you ask me who I’d most like to be … well, I’d really most like to be myself, and after that Jimmy Stewart. He’s the best American actor, both in serious and comic drama. ‘
    … with Christmas approaching it makes me think that it would have been nice if David had gotten the chance to do a remake of “It’s A Wonderful Life” during his career as an actor.

    But I thought I’d mention that … Jimmy Stewart loved music and playing the piano (he actually got his start in entertainment singing and playing the accordion). Who knows, maybe if James Stewart could have been anyone else he would have wanted to have been David.

    Anyway … This Christmas, David can spend it making music with the other person he would have most wanted to be … if he could have been another person … Jimmy Stewart.

    … David & Jimmy … Enjoy Tickling the Ivories together in Heaven

    FROM SAM:
    The most beautiful rendition of Blue Christmas imaginable is sung by a Partridge in a pear tree:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BTwalwPTQo
    Sleep in heavenly peace, David Cassidy.

    For the Cassidy family this will be a blue Christmas, indeed; but let’s all heed David’s last words and waste no time mitigating this tragedy with triumph – please take this opportunity to spread a miraculous message of Phoenix-like rebirth:
    Don’t take your organs to heaven – Heaven knows we need them here!
    In this season of giving, please consider becoming an organ donor!

    David was hoping for a liver transplant when he died.
    Each day an average of 20 people die waiting for an organ to become available .
    Every 10 minutes someone is added to the National transplant waiting list.
    One donor can save up to 8 lives. YOU can save up to 8 lives!
    https://unos.org/donation/register-to-be-an-organ-donor/

    Never have I been so grateful for the gift of life, defying all odds now 23 years post kidney transplant; and for the gift of life without diabetes, now 16 years post pancreas transplant, thanks to the generosity of two complete strangers who gave me the opportunity to defy death and live to make them proud. I can’t begin to express my gratitude… and sorrow that others are not as fortunate.

    For everyone feeling the loss of David Cassidy, may visions of sugarplums dance in your heads again going forward.
    Warm holiday wishes,

    You will always be in my thoughts and my heart.
    I loved The Partridge Family.
    My bedroom walls were covered in your posters.
    Didn’t get to see you in concert until 2001, I was so excited, you didn’t disappoint. It was fantastic I will NEVER forget it.

    I am still mourning the loss of my first love. It feels like I’ve lost a member of my own family. From the moment I first set eyes on David I fell in love. I was one of the girls who begged their dads to take them to Heathrow Queens Building to see him and scream at his concert in Wembley Stadium. I couldn’t talk properly for a week afterwards but it was worth it. Going

    I’m here just to say a final goodbye to David. Tomorrow will be 2 weeks. They have been hard knowing he is not around anymore. I don’t cry much but this time I cried every day specially the night he left us. I have been a fan since I was 13 and I am 59. He truly was my first love and brought joy and love in my life. I know he did not have it easy. I have read his books. I hope he is happy now. He surely deserve it. He gave his life to his fans and the people he loved. That is how David was. Life is just not the same. I hope that those who are taking advantage of the situation are hurting those that truly cared about him. I would give anything to have him back even for a moment. RIP my beautiful David. I’ve always love you and will continue till the end. I’ll keep dreaming out loud because you are a part of my heart forever xoxoxoxo

    David Cassidy WAS my childhood. I remember fondly how much I loved the Partridge Family , had every album; I was 6 or 7 then it premiered on my birthday…….jeez that never leaves you. I followed him through out his career-following every bad and good part–I think I just didn’t care like everyone else.i wanted to see him! When you are a little kid in the 70’s —never have seen him-jeez-it was bucket list for me….crazy, I know…but, finally did see him in 2009…he was great…ugh…devastated that he is gone. BUT, listening to fave song “Summer Days”….He was TRULY THE BEST!!!!!

    The other part of David’s life which was very important to him was his horses and breeding his race horses. He knew everything equine. He could remember every horse and its lineage. Each August he stayed with a horse vet and his wife near the race track at Saratoga Springs. I am blessed he saw me with my beloved horses, Riot, Tabby, Pinky and Henry, before he died.

    At the end of Craig, David’s record producer and friends’ radio interview on David’s face book page, we hear a brief snatch of David’s last recording – ‘Songs my father Taught me.’ David sings BB Kings ‘Sweet Little Angel’ and plays guitar. It’s very impressive David was able to play his guitar – Black Knife Stratocaster – as he suffered such bad arthritis in his hands and fingers he said playing guitar had become an ordeal. However, despite this, he was determined to carry on. I admire him for his spirit. And he plays his guitar very well!!!

    I am still so sad over David’s untimely passing. Will play the Partridge Family Christmas album over the holidays in his memory. I am so, so glad I went to see him at his Farewell concert at BB Kings in March. After the concert, I waited outside the stage door for him to emerge, just to say “Thank You,” for all his work, but it was so, so cold I just went home. No other celebrity brings back memories of the early 70’s the way David does. When I was in 7th grade, Mom drove us to Catholic school- St. Paschal’s. On the way there, we had a long stop light in front of an Army hospital. There would be flatbed trucks with coffins piled on top of young men who had died in the Vietnam War. Mom would get so upset, she would rev up the motor and cuss. At the first boy-girl party I attended, at age 13, (though I was not very popular with boys at that time), they played the Partridge Family hits, along with some R & B songs. Mom, being a feminist a little ahead of her time, didn’t want my sisters and me to put up posters of “teen idols” in our bedrooms – “teenage girls should develop their own interests and not be silly about boys”- soooo, we put David’s head shots up in the attic. I remember going to our small town drugstore and reading 16 magazine and Tiger Beat there. David was so beautiful, and I found out later, so kind and decent as a human being. Much love to David’s family and close friends, Leihsia

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned (because this thread is so long), but did anyone hear about the song “I Wanna Be David Cassidy” by Ken Sharp. You can get it on iTunes. It benefits the Alzheimer’s Association. I bought it on iTunes in honor of David.

    Hi Felicia, hope you are doing much better. I took some time just to reflect. After my conversation with clerk who helped me with the people and closer magazine about David, last Friday, I was driving home and in a small cloud was a rainbow,red,light yellow and blue. My friend Michael said that is a sign from David. The clerk at the store liked David, and she new I was emotionally upset during our talk, and she was just so caring, and thanked me for sharing my David Cassidy story, I also told her about my friendship with you Felicia. And about this website how we all been helping eachother, she said that is wonderful. I believe in God, I have to trust in him, and David is happy and at peace. It’s not easy, we must heal and enjoy all that David left for us. David left us with his website, and only a David Cassidy fan, can understand another David Cassidy fan. All the posts bring back good memories of great stories, somehow we all relate and agree. David Cassidy was the star to keep your eye on. Now he is a star in the sky.

I think people thought he would come and go. I knew he was forever. I played the record could it be forever,till the needle wore out on my record player, we were fans David Cassidy fans together and forever.

    fans are coming to terms with David Cassidy’s
    death. Everybody is paying tribute to him with
    their memories of him. I remember so clearly
    seeing David in concert on June 25, 2016 in
    New Jersey. He told the audience there were
    peo
    ple at the concert who he went to elementary
    school with. He sang I think I love you for his
    last song, everybody rushed the stage . He
    started shaking hands with the fans. I did not get
    to shake his hand but I did touch his hand. That
    was a great moment to be so close to him. He

    left his mark on society. The world is a better

    Hi Felicia, good morning, nice to hear from you, I’m glad you saw him in 2016, you got close and a touch, I was at the June 4, concert 2016, imagine we were not friends than, I wish we were, I had two front row seats in the middle, I gave one to my sister, other two seats few rows back for my friends Bob and Michael. I made a collage of pictures of all the times I met David, not huge, cause I kept it close, I did not even try to see him again, I wanted that time and chance for someone else. When David came out there was excitement, and his beautiful smile, and his one and only voice could be heard. He sang right by me and my sister, my sister had someone behind take a pic, I have my last memory, I did not show David my collage yet. Sometime into the show, girls around us said show him, I picked the right moment and approached the stage closer, I was right there, he looked and backed up, you could see that bright lights bothered him, and the band played music lightly and David said to me: it is nice you brought pictures of you and I , this is something we do back stage and I said I just want to thank you, and I threw him a kiss. I’m glad I did thank him in person for all the memories I have. The show was great, do I have a regret, not going backstage no, the only regret I have is not attending David’s concert in 2013, at lakeside Ohio. I wanted to go,but instead went to Erie. I should of just went. But I meet David many times in person, took pics with me had wonderful conversations and moments, and I have two autographs, from my favorite star, who is everyone’s favorite star. Even if I never met David Cassidy I would of been a lifetime fan, he was real, his kindness and hard work will never be forgotten, us fans remained loyal and he knew that. Each fan here has a David Cassidy story, and we all relate to. I’m so glad we are all here together. Arcelia hi to you, and hope you are doing well. Claire I liked your story, did you get to talk to David much at the track? Nice you got to see him happy with the horses. My thoughts and prayers are still with his family. Katie and Beau especially, love to yous.

    Denise – No, although I share with him a love of horses, I only met David once. Unfortunately a fight broke out among some fans right behind me, which he then had to sort out. I think eventually he did manage to smooth things over. He thought it was quite funny.
    Barbara – I worked in the theatre for many years front-of-house. Performers always want to perform and carry on no matter what!!! Yes, David’s last performances were different, but he none-the-less put a lot into them and his personality shined through!!

    Denice – Yes, the fight broke out over David. It was back stage in London at the Dominion Theatre where David was appearing in the ‘Time’ musical. It was a meet and greet session with fans following the show. David was signing posters and his fans were queuing up. He’d just asked me if I’d enjoyed the show, I’d just replied when two fans behind me began to fight. David said, ‘Ladies! Ladies!’ The last I saw he had managed to smooth things over.

I just took in every moment of his last concert I was at June 4-16. I still see his smile when he came on stage, and the beautiful goodbye. I took it seriously this last time, he just had messes he never meant for things to go badly. David kept alot inside, but he was honest with us fans on so much, we related, we respected and we cared and loved him. Just keep that happy moment Claire of David even if it was short. So nice of you to tell your DC story. Really helps to know we can talk with eachother, sometimes your own family doesn’t understand the David Cassidy impact and all the happiness us fans got from him. Hi Felicia, I will wait for your letters, and I am in process for one for you. Your friendship has meant the world to me. I would feel so alone if I didn’t come on this warm loving website.

    I never got to meet David, as many of you know, but I had a weird dream last night that included him. I almost never remember my dreams.

    In the dream, I was walking along a sidewalk somewhere with a friend. I happened upon David and stopped when I approached him. He gave me a really, really long tight hug, touching the back of my head with one hand. No words were spoken at all. It was so sincere. I must stress that it was a very, very long, heartfelt hug. After I walked on and joined my friend, it occurred to me that I was fat and that David didn’t care. No words were spoken then by anybody either.

    Dreams are silly, but I thought I’d share this since it was about David. I don’t think he even knew my name.

    RIP, our dear David.

    This is too weird we even have privilege to this stuff, don’t you think. Such private information. How did this get into the press anyway? We’ll never know if he had arrangements with the mom in the years before. Even with people I know directly, this info should have been kept private. I wouldn’t want the wishes of my will being shared. Would any of us really? The person isn’t even here to explain the “whos and whats” of that document nor should they have to go into details to millions of us. Just very creepy. I feel it’s an invasion of privacy for the family. Isn’t the grieving process enough without money issues? Whoever released that should be taken to task. David’s memorial hasn’t even been held. It just feel wrong all the way.

        I had a dream about David last night, too. My Mom and Dad and I were at a family gathering at my cousin”s house and David was there. What was strange about this dream was that it took place in this year, but David was still in his early twenties, and he was still wearing his Keith Partridge haircut and was dressed like Keith. In real life, David is much older than I am, but in this dream, I was older than he was. I remember in the dream, I was excited to be meeting David, and he was so nice to me! It was really kind of disappointing to wake up and find out that it was just a dream and not the real thing. I wish I could have met David for real. When he looked at me and took my hand in his while he sang, “No Bridge I Wouldn’t Cross” in concert, that was the closest I ever came to meeting him. I just wish that I could have actually met him, but it wasn’t meant to be.

          We can’t know whether or not dreams are products of our minds, but I’ve read about some NDE’s (near death experiences) where the person who died and came back to life said that people are asked when they cross over (and don’t come back) what age they want to appear. I wouldn’t be surprised if David chose to appear in his early 20s with the famous haircut, even though 31 was said to be the popular age choice up there! Was David dressed like Super Fly? lol

            Hi, Margaret.
            No, David was dressed pretty much like he was on The Partridge Family – form-fitting shirt that buttoned down the front with a couple of the top buttons undone, tight-fitting bell-bottoms jeans, boots, and his puka shell necklace. I guess he looked that way in my dream because that’s how I remember him the most.

            Just the other night, I found a David Cassidy concert video from 1985, and David had blonde hair and he was dressed in a total 80’s getup, including a belly shirt. I understand those shirts were popular for men back in the 80’s, and then later in the 90’s, they were popular for women like Shania Twain. As much as I love David’s Keith Partridge look, I’m really kind of surprised he wasn’t looking like he did back in the 80’s in my dream. That was a pretty sexy look, too. Oh, well, he was adorable, no matter how he dressed or wore his hair.

        • Posted December 8, 2017 at 5:01 pm | Permalink

          I also had a dream. It was two nights after David was gone. He came and visited me all wrapped in an awesome beautiful white light (it was a mix of all his ages) and that light came right straight into my heart. He was there for a short time and then he slowly left me. That light look like is still there so close to me and that gives me some real comfort.

    I was very dismayed and disappointed, People did not have the decency to pay tribute to one of the biggest stars in the world of the early 70’s. He was incredibly talented, multifaceted and a decent, good all around human being; unlike the artists we have today. Shame on you.

    got ignored by People magazine. Good for you

    I don’t think the tributes got started yet! I agree there really was nothing in people, And just of yesterday ,no articles in any magazines on David, at the stores, I shouldn’t have to search in pages,should be cover story, hope rolling stone magazine does , a great tribute to David and hope someone puts out a collector magazine, Felicia my thoughts are with your family in California, are you still going? God bless and have a nice evening. I’m working on my letter to you.

    The feeling is mutual, your friendship means the world to me. I am

    I wrote you a total of 3 letters so far, and I sent
    you a Christmas card . You should be getting

    People should put a whole magazine out about our loved David Cassidy. All he did, yes we would have alot of pages,and let’s not leave out pictures of David. I just reread your post Felicia, and yours Tricia, both very well said and right to the point. A man of that talent, his theatre tributes, his voice, now we must have a voice.

    I was at Wal-Mart yesterday, and when I went to the checkout counter to pay for my items, I happened to glance at the latest issue of People magazine. Imagine my disappointment when I saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the cover instead of David Cassidy! No disrespect towards the Royal couple mind you, but my goodness, David Cassidy died just two weeks ago, and for People Magazine to overlook that is a major letdown to his family, friends, and fans! I’ve got a good mind to boycott People Magazine. I don’t care if Blake Shelton is on the cover (another one of my favorite celebs), if People Magazine chooses to overlook David Cassidy’s recent passing and not pay a loving tribute to him, they don’t get my support!

    David is really taking a beating regarding his will that was drafted in 2004 . Apparently he didn’t leave anything to Katie.
    In the end, we don’t know everything about the history and circumstances of Katie and David’s relationship. Nobody really knows except the people involved. Or, did David reveal the entire history in his 2007 autobiography? (I haven’t read it so I don’t know) I am not in any position to judge David for doing what he did because I don’t know the backstory. The media of course loves to stir the pot. Darn, I hate that! David doesn’t deserve that. All I know is that Katie rushed to his side and was there for him, so I am thinking there was a reconciliation at some point. The public is cruel. Like David quoted “there needs to be more kindness in the world.”

    • Kelly
      Posted December 8, 2017 at 1:25 am | Permalink

      I’m sure David would be sick to his stomach if he knew about the media making this thing about his will a public matter. To me, it seems like that should be a personal thing and not something that the public should know anything about. And you’re right. We don’t know the circumstances of David and Katie’s relationship as father and daughter, so who are we to judge?

We don’t know what was going on, and who was running things. All I know is the world is going to miss him. Money comes and goes. Earthly things are not love. Katie should be happy she did get to reconcile and make peace in the end. She knew deep down David had love for her in his heart. I hope she will be okay, she seems like a nice pretty sensible young lady with a full career already in process. Maybe someday she will let us fans know more.

    Kelly,
    I was eight years old when The Partridge Family debuted in 1970, but I think the crushed velvet outfits were an early version of what they wore on the show onstage. Some of the older ladies on here can comment on the crushed velvet outfits. People used to joke that they looked like a bunch of “white people dressed like Super Fly,” so that’s where I got the Super Fly comment from. That was likely the reason they found different outfits for the actors to wear, too! But yea, I liked most of the stuff they performed in on the show. I am partial to the 70s feather haircut and the shorter version that he sported in about 1990 or 1991, though. It’s been fun talking to you about dreams. I’m glad I’m not the only one literally dreaming about him.

    • Margaret
      Posted December 8, 2017 at 10:58 am | Permalink

      P.S. My dream seemed to be symbolic of his place in my life path, where David was there for quite a time, just returning the love for fans like me that he’d never met/spoken to, and then I had to move on without him. Who the “friend” was with me in the dream is unknown, but they seemed quite insignificant to me and were not a DC fan. I did not visualize David in the dream, either. It was all a spiritual thing.

    I was disappointed that there was no tribute on Sky Arts or any channel following David’s passing. He was an icon and should have had some recognition. When another musician has died there is a tribute to them but none to our David. What a let down. I also think it is disgusting that the press are publishing his will. This is a very private matter. How dare they go snooping into someone’s private and personal affairs. Shame on them and anyone else who supports this. David would be appalled at this act of shamefulness.

    We will always cherish him and he will still be with us with his music. I still cannot believe he has gone. Such a beautiful man.

    Thank you Jane and we team for all the hard work you have done and please keep this up. I never met David but I feel part of my has died also.
    God Bless you David.

Nobody knows the relationship between him and Katie,s Mother and why he didn’t have a close relationship with his daughter. I BELIEVE HE LOVED HER AND WAS PROUD OF HER. THE CASSIDY FAMILY ARE IN MOURNING OF THEIR LOVED ONE, Katie keep in close friendship with your brother as your Dad did with his, TIME IS A HEALER GOD BLESS Yvonne from Scotland .

    On David’s facebook page, the Michael Barratt interview, BBC archive footage from 1974, several people have commented on David’s slightly English accent. David’s father, Jack Cassidy, spoke with an accent that was almost entirely English. When I first heard a recording of David’s father speaking, I was surprised because he spoke like an English Shakespearian actor. David explained in film footage at Heathrow Airport, his father had a particular love for the UK. Maybe this explains why David started to speak in an English accent when he was in the UK undertaking this interview? But much more likely, he was picking up on Michael Barratt’s accent!! David could easily speak in a perfect British accent, and make lots of authentic English-style comments about the weather!

      Posted December 8, 2017 at 10:47 pm | Permalink

      I remember seeing a documentary years ago about David, and it showed him arriving somewhere in England by airplane. After he stepped off the plane, he was chatting with some people about the weather ( it was wintertime) and he was speaking in this really authentic-sounding British accent. I thought, “Wow! I didn’t know David could do that kind of accent!” I myself, have tried to imitate a British accent sometimes, just to see if I can do it. I can do it a little bit, but I’m not great at it. The easiest accent for me to imitate is a Southern accent. I remember David doing a bit if a Southern accent in the “Keith and Lauriebelle” episode of The Partridge Family. Remember? “You can come out now, Mother Cullpepper!” lol! Too cute!

    I felt sick to my stomach last night when I heard the news about David’s WILL. The media will sell their mothers if they could just for ratings! They have no integrity or compassion. Yes, celebrities are public figures and to a certain extent as such they sacrifice some of their privacy for their craft; that’s the nature of show business. BUT, there are certain private matters that should be completely left out of the public, and that includes their WILLS! Nobody knows what really happened with that side of David’s family or relationship.
    I just don’t want David’s memory and legacy to be dragged to the ground by unscrupulous media predators. David was a good, loving, and decent man, with flaws and struggles like most or all human beings in this planet. And compared to what is happening with all these celebrities and politicians, David was an angel!
    Maybe I’m overreacting, but it saddens me that during his life he was underrated and unappreciated; and now that he is gone he is going to be disparaged because of a private matter that should have never seen light of day. I should have never read all those comments from nasty, hateful people. It really dragged me down. I will always love you David. You have my utmost respect. And thank you to this website and the fans that post here. I feel better reading your feedback. Hugs to all of you.

    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

Did not go to any concerts in the UK , but was allowed to see him land at Heathrow Airport in 1972-73? Got right at the front among screaming girls! Just waved at David and he looked straight at me and another girl! Many years went by and saw him again in my forties in Bournemouth UK with my cousin Sonia. Was a wonderful evening ! Just as gorgeous and that smile! So sad how David died. Hope he is at peace now. Lesleyxxxxx. Bristol, England

    Jack Cassidy, David’s nephew has released a christmas song called Emmanuel. He said on his twitter page that it was the last song his uncle david heard and that he passed minutes later. It’s a beautiful song and obviously meant a lot to the family that it was sung during David’s final minutes on earth.
    David’s nephew is very spiritual and I am sure a great source of comfort to the family. Sleep peacefully David x

I always wanted to meet you, perhaps I will one day….

      You are welcome Felicia. I am trying to heal, but it still hurts. I am still surprised that David’s death has impacted me so deeply especially when I did not follow him for so long. But maybe it’s because I feel guilty I didn’t follow him more intently and with the fervor I did when I was young. I kept my toes in the water, but didn’t jump in the water fully so to speak. I really believe my admiration and love for him was always there buried down deep in my heart. When I heard about his dementia my love for him came out, and somehow a force (God maybe) wanted me to come back at that point in time and rediscover him and be able to enjoy him for those few magical six months. Oh how I wish I would’ve come back sooner! Reading those sweet posts of his was beautiful, and being able to express my love and gratitude to him on his website while he was still with us was heartening for me. I am listening to his beautiful young and mature voice and it gives me peace and happiness, oh do I smile! Thank you David. I know in my heart you are at peace. And I do know you knew you were loved.

    It will soon be three weeks since our beloved David went to Heaven to be with the Lord. Hard to believe, isn’t it? I have been trying to cheer myself up by watching videos of David singing in concert, being interviewed, and acting. It makes me feel better just to see his handsome face, hear his voice, hear his laugh, and see his smile and sparkling eyes.

    I was saying to my Mom today, that I wish that one of the channels that show classic TV shows would show reruns of The Partridge Family in honor of David’s memory. It would be great to have that show back on TV, not just for those of us who remember the 70’s, but for the people who weren’t even born when the show was on the air. They could see why we all love The Partridge Family and David Cassidy so much. I’m sure some of you have episodes of the show on DVD, but if TVLand, Nick At Night, FETV, or any of the other channels that show classic TV shows would air reruns of the show, it would be a great thing to see. Maybe we could email these networks and request this. I’d love to watch The Partridge Family again. I know it would take us all back to a better time.

    Heute ist der 2. Advent, ich sitze mit meinem Mann am Frühstückstisch. Vor genau 3 Wochen saßen wir zusammen mit der gesamten Familie. Es war mein Geburtstag. Wir waren fröhlich, bis zu dem Zeitpunkt als ich auf meinem Handy die Nachricht las, dass David mit Organversagen im Krankenhaus lag. Ich war entsetzt. Zwei Tage später war David gestorben. Für mich brach eine Welt zusammen. Ich habe leider nie ein Konzert von ihm gesehen, was ich so sehr bereue. Ich bin so froh, dass es YouTube gibt, dort sehe ich mir jetzt täglich alte Aufnahmen an. Dann fühle ich mich in meinem Herzen wieder genau so wie vor 46 Jahren. R. I. P. lieber David.

      Hallo Birgit
      Da mein Englisch nicht so gut ist und es sehr anstrengend für mich ist, in Englisch zu schreiben, freue ich mich, hier einen deutschen Kommentar zu lesen. Mir geht es genau so. David ist am 21. November gestorben und ich war gerade dabei, mich an meine liebe Tante zu erinnern, die letztes Jahr am gleichen Tag für immer gegangen ist. Ich war so geschockt, als ich dann die Todesnachricht las, und jetzt hänge ich oft auf YouTube rum und schaue mir die alten Videos an und höre seine Lieder. Damals Anfang der 70er, es war eine düstere Zeit in meiner Jugend. Lange Geschichte. Jedenfalls hat mir die Musik von David Cassidy und die Serie, wo ich mich oft köstlich amüsiert habe, sehr geholfen. Und jetzt fühle ich mich zurück versetzt und fühle es nochmals. Genau das … Sein Lächeln, seine Musik, die Freude mit der Serie, diese wunderschöne menschliche Seele … Dank You Tube habe ich zwar ein bisschen seinen Weg in den letzten Jahren mit verfolgt, aber hier in Europa war er ja nicht mehr so bekannt. Es wäre schön, wenn die deutschen Fernsehsender eine Sendung über David Cassidy bringen würden, als Andenken an ihn und für die vielen Fans, die er hier gehabt hat. Er war ein Ausnahmetalent. Damals, ich war 13, hat mich sein Lächeln fasziniert, wie so viele andere auch, aber ich hatte immer das Gefühl, da sind Tränen in seinen Augen, die er nie geweint hat. Jetzt habe ich mir die Doku angeschaut und seine Lebensgeschichte einverleibt und mein sensibles jugendliches Herz hat mich nicht getäuscht. Das muss ich jetzt nach 45 Jahren feststellen. Er hat Zeit seines Lebens wahrscheinlich gesucht, was er nie wirklich gefunden hat … ich hoffe er hat es jetzt … R.I.P. David Cassidy, Deine wundervolle Stimme ist für immer verstummt, wir werden sie vermissen …

      Today is the 2nd Advent, I sit with my husband at the breakfast table. Exactly 3 weeks ago we sat together with the whole family. It was my birthday. We were happy until I read the message on my phone that David had hospitalized organ failure. I was horrified. Two days later David died. For me, a world collapsed. Unfortunately I have never seen a concert of him, which I regret so much. I am so glad that there is YouTube, where I watch daily old recordings. Then I feel in my heart just as 46 years ago. R. I.

      Hello Birgit
      Since my English is not so good and it is very stressful for me to write in English, I am pleased to read a German comment here. The same thing happened to me. David died on the 21st of November, and I was just remembering my dear aunt, who left forever the same year last year. I was so shocked when I read the death message, and now I often hang out on YouTube and watch the old videos and listen to his songs. Back in the early ’70s, it was a dark time in my youth. Long story. Anyway, the music of David Cassidy and the show, where I enjoyed myself a lot, helped me a lot. And now I feel relegated and feel it again. Just that … His smile, his music, the joy of the show, this beautiful human soul … Thanks to You Tube, I’ve been following his path a bit in the last few years, but here in Europe, he was not so well known anymore. It would be nice if the German TV stations would broadcast a program about David Cassidy, in memory of him and for the many fans he had here. He was an exceptional talent. Back then, when I was 13, his smile fascinated me, like so many others, but I always had the feeling there are tears in his eyes that he never cried. Now I’ve looked at the documentary and incorporated his life story and my sensitive youthful heart has not deceived me. I have to say that now after 45 years. He probably was looking for his life, which he never really found … I hope he has it now … R.I.P. David Cassidy, your wonderful voice has died forever, we will miss it …

I was struggling through some dark times in my life, but being a part of David’s world lifted my spirits and brought pure joy to my life. Never did I feel happier than when I watched him on the show or listened to that beautiful voice, and kissed his poster every night. But please remember his wonderful voice will NEVER EVER die. Through his work he will live forever. His music is alive and well and will go on to the end of time. 🙂

      Yes, it would be really nice if there was a documentary about David on TV. He was not paid enough attention in Germany in the past. That’s too bad.

      I read that story not long ago. Imagine having David Cassidy at your Christmas party as Santa Claus! David always seemed like a jolly kind of guy to me because he seemed like someone who loved to laugh. I’ll bet he made a great Santa at that party. I wish I had been there!

    It is so wonderful to read the posts here. What a special man to have engendered such loyalty and love! I tried to remember what drew me to being a fan back in 1973 – none of my friends were fans – and even then I felt I had to explain why I thought he was wonderful to my more serious friends. I cried to one of them over our old dial up phone because there was no way that my family could let me go to a concert in Brisbane in 1974, over 1600 kms away. I knew that it was a fantasy, as I knew that my adoration was of no consequence to this superstar. I gradually let it and David go. I missed his resurgence in the eighties, even though I lived in London at the same time. Occasionally I read articles about what he was doing, pleased to see that he was able to carve out a new post superstar career. In 2002 I left Australia to work in Europe, and while I was there David came to Australia. If I’d been here I would have gone to his concert, and seen for myself that his original success was based on amazing talent, and an astounding ability to connect with his audience. But I missed that. The Internet is a wonderful thing, and in 2009, I found this site and I bought a CD online. My brother-in-law bought me a classic vinyl copy of Cherish. That was special because his opinion of music is one I value. I read about concert programs and thought that maybe I would travel to the US and build a trip around seeing a concert. But that wasn’t to be. I had come back to Australia to spend time with my parents, and lost my father to dementia, and my dreams became a bit smaller, with not so much travel. And then tragically, David died on what would have been my father’s birthday (here in Australis 22nd November). No concerts any more. No chance of seeing this tremendous, energetic, talented, intelligent and kind man perform. Thank you David for the music and your tenacity and strength. Thank you to all of his wonderfully loyal fans for supporting him over all those years. And thank you also to his family for sharing him with us. Your loss is far greater, but we have an inkling of how you are feeling. I hope that knowing how much he was loved and respected by people from all over the world is of some comfort.

    Hi Arcelia, it’s me Denice all the way over here in Cleveland, Ohio, our weather is winter now. I loved your post, you have David in your heart. Can I ask you a question? Did you meet David? What specialnest about David can you tell us fans? I think for any of us who meet him , so difficult now. David just loved all his fans. If I never met him I would of still been a fan than and now and forever. He just had such a tremendous IMPACT on the world. Now we remember what a talent, and David’s work on earth has ended. During this I feel us fans are paying our respects in all our beautiful spoken posts. And Arcelia, I never got to meet you, but I feel I have somehow through your posts and all you done in the past here on David’s website. I think it is very important for fans who meet him to share there stories, David would of wanted a celebration of his life. He was a big Star, but the KINDNESS. Arcelia have a nice day, to a very nice girl. We’re allowed to be young here again.

      Hi Denice

      Yes, I was lucky enough to meet David. It was at his Pre-Birthday Party in London in 2011. I always dreamed to meet him but l live in Spain and never in millions years I thought it would happened to me someday.

      You know, I tried to go to that party for months but things became complicated so I would not go.

      David was going to celebrate his birthday in the UK on Sunday April10th but as time goes by as time goes by, David announced another Birthday show in Atlantic City on Saturday April 9th, and his staff decided to delay the Party on Monday April 11th so he could be more rested and relaxed. I was not going to be there on Sunday, but I would be on Monday. Some fans started saying that the party was going to take place at Novotel Hotel, just where I had booked my room. My head began to consider the possibility of seeing David (I didn´t mind if it was from a long distance).

      It´s a long story but… to make it shorter, I will tell you that I really believe in Fate so thanks to Les, my friend Glyn´s husband, who talked to the promoter, I could enter the party.

      The dinner was a buffet so you had to serve yourself. There was a queue to get to the bar and I gave all the way around to go through David’s table (just two tables away opposite me) and get to see him closer. He wore a beautiful white shirt, black leather jacket and dark blue jeans, I loved his hair style too, very short. He looked gorgeous!. It was the first time I saw him so close, I was so nervous that I nearly tripped over all the chairs I found my way.

      When we finished dinner, David stood up from his chair and he went to the small stage where he spoke about his successful career and about the support he has got from his fans all over the years and also thanked us for sharing that special night with him. I loved the comment he made when talking about his boy son Beau: “He is my best production”, he said. We all laughed. Then he sang his beautiful version of “Ain´t No Sunshine” and while Scott Wright and his Band finished the song, David began to mingle with fans giving them big hugs.

      He began around the table, finished and started the other one.
      Then he arrived to the table next to me, but this time he didn´t hug the next girl and while I was still wondering what I was going to say to him, he suddenly turned his front to me with his arms open wide and talked to me: “Hiiii”. I got surprised but I could still say to him “I came from Spain, David” and we both gave each other a BIG hug holding us on thightly while he whispered in my ear: “Awwwwwww, sweetie!. It was like MAGICAL, David was there, holding me and he even let me kiss him!!! YES!!!!!. I asked him to kiss me on my cheek and he said: “Nooooo!”. But we all know he´s such a “naugthy boy” so he smiled and talked to me: Kiss me you. And I did ( giggles ). Can you imagine how I felt??… THE HAPPIEST WOMAN ALL AROUND THE WORLD!!!!.

      You can believe it or not but although I dreamt trillions times to live a moment like that, I was totally aware that what it was happening to me that night it was NO a dream, it was REAL for sure!!. Then I got to speak to him for a while. He was so nice, friendly and lovely to me! And so funny too!. I´d always thought I had fainted if I had had the chance to meet him someday but I did not get nervous at all, he made me feel sooo good, it was like talking to a friend that you see everyday. Just incredible!!. OMG, I’ll never ever forget that night!!

      Thank you David ♥

    Dear Arcelia, thank you, thank you, for telling me , your David Cassidy story, Magical, for us who have met him, words explaining David I feel we all share a similar picture, also for me, I thought I would faint, always to the day thought meeting him was in my dreams, he just was a person who made you feel calm, and from there he was a delight to talk to. He made you feel welcomed. And it’s important for the fans to know that is the real David Cassidy, and as years went on I think he wanted to be with his fans more. What a special bond , he cared , and Arcelia thank you for sharing your special story, you went through alot, but the magical moment became reality, and it’s not everyday a fan was able to share, moments of his personal time, it’s always going to be difficult, not having David, but hearing your story Arcelia has cheered me up. I feel like a family here, you always have a memory a lovely memory, and your story showed the real David Cassidy. The whole story, when he talked about Beau, just wonderful, I hope all the fans here enjoy, reading I can feel the excitement of your time. David Cassidy was real.

    Hi Arcelia, I think I watched it,he sings ain’t no sunshine, not the whole song, than he walks the room, and WOW, I’m so happy for you,David really looked happy and relaxed and comfortable, and he had on his black leather jacket, his hair was short, but the first time I meet him,1981 his hair was short,for theatre starred in little Johnny Jones, I liked it short as well as long, 1983he had it long that was New York, on Broadway, for Joseph and Amazing Technicolor dreamcoat, and he kept it long for awhile, still long when he short toured with play, came here to Akron Ohio, show was amazing, his performance just as outstanding as I saw on Broadway, And a few more times in concert, in the road with the great Danny Bonaduce, his talent was on extreme to another,actor, singer,and 1994 here in Cle, in Blood Brothers, had a black leather jacket,wonder if same one, anyhow he looked great, and another terrific performance, I have the best memories, and I’m just glad to be here with you all. He was so nice on all occasions, back in 1970s I always new David would be our lifetime star, and I was one of many trillions fans he had, but I never expected to be friends with any of David’s fans. I wish David knew we would all be together, my friend Felicia said this is like belonging to a special club. It’s special in everyway, because of David Cassidy.

    I sat and watched the 2002 recording of the Glasgow concert from start to finish last night as I hadn’t watched it in a while.
    It doesn’t get much better than this I reckon. The band, the backing singers, and David of course. absolutely top-notch concert.
    If any fans out there who haven’t seen this, grab yourself a copy if you can.
    The whole tour was terrific and I’m feeling so thankful David came back to the UK several times in the last 15 years.

      When David did this concert he performed in the same venue November 2001, feeling the water to see if he could do a tour in 2002. I feel privileged that I saw both he was fantastic .I think the reason they were so good it was the happiest time for him in his career the 90’s and the early 00’s.

      Had not heard this, but did a quick check on the computer and HURRAY for Sue and the family. At this season especially, to make money off of DC, is so insulting.

      Capitalizing financially on David’s last words is just beyond belief.

      But, I think Katie sharing those words was important. I am grateful for knowing that happened at the end with the family.

      I have used the phrase of “So much wasted time” already with situations that needed to change direction when someone was upset about something that just wasn’t important in the scope of life.

      Those words belong in our HEARTS — not on a t-shirt.

    Thanks Yvonne, I was very lucky, and most of all I’m lucky to share my story, on how wonderful David was to fans when he could be , he was happy in those early years, when I seen him in 2007, he came right in front of me and layer down on the stage, a fan from the other end gave him roses, and he handed me the roses, I threw them at my friend next to me, I had to get that pic, so handsome microphone in his hand, and singing, my guy friend just looked at me, like he just gave the roses to you , than David took the roses back, but his smile for the pic , is what I hope will be shared soon. I think David enjoyed little stir ups, he was fun , he puts the lights on even if they were off. Yvonne David knew in his heart, us fans. You are special also. I really like all your posts, you are miles away, but a David Cassidy fan is right here.

    I wrote this blog/essay in honor of David. Hoping it will be posted on HuffPost for all to read, in the meantime, I think fans of David’s will relate.

    David Cassidy – Still Breaking Hearts

    I am one among thousands, perhaps millions who turned on the television on September 25, 1970 and had their heart stolen. A handsome young man walked off a psychedelic bus and my heart was gone. Stolen by David Cassidy who was introduced to me by Keith Partridge.
    I was thirteen years old and just beginning high school. David Cassidy was the talk in the hallways and at the lunch tables of my all-girls high school on Staten Island the day after The Partridge Family aired. A name that a day earlier hadn’t crossed my or my friends’ minds was now the only thing on it.
    I imagine for an earlier generation, it was like the first time Elvis appeared on television, but David Cassidy did not swivel his hips with blatant sexuality making parents everywhere gasp in horror. Instead, he had a subtle, innocent sexuality that was approved by our parents because Shirley Jones provided the “G” rating. The Partridge Family was a show we watched with our parents. They along with us laughed at the silly scenarios. Danny, usually the instigator, Keith the buffoon, Laurie the idealist, Tracy along with Chris the innocent and Shirley the voice of reason. It united two generations for those thirty minutes. It was an escape from the nightly news reports that were dividing us. College campus protests and dying boys caused by a war in Vietnam, a country which had also never crossed my mind.
    In addition to my heart being stolen by David Cassidy, he also took my money, although sadly, years later I would learn that David didn’t benefit from those purchases. Records, posters, pukka shell necklaces became my treasures. I was too young to attend David Cassidy concerts alone and although my parents watched the television show with me, taking me to a concert was something completely different. And so, I played “I Can Feel Your Heartbeat” over and over again on my small phonograph in my bedroom while a smiling David Cassidy stared down at me from my wall.
    My high school years ended the same year The Partridge Family did. I packed for college and left behind my poster, my albums, my pukka shells and David Cassidy. I still liked his songs and would listen to them on occasion when I was home, but never at college. I, like the world, had changed. We both had become “too cool” for David, neither was as innocent as we had been on those Friday nights.
    Through the years that followed David Cassidy was not on my mind except when I would occasionally hear a David Cassidy or Partridge Family song on the radio. I turned it up, sang along (much to the dismay of my husband and children) and would become lost for those 2 minutes and 6 seconds. Lost to a time when my biggest concern was buying the latest copy of Tiger Beat with David Cassidy on the cover and reading everything I could about his life. My daughters grew up listening to my nostalgic narratives about him. One year, he was appearing at a local venue, and I was secretly hoping they had bought me tickets as a surprise. The concert came and went, without me. I’ll see him some other time, I thought to myself. Once again David Cassidy was off my mind.
    I didn’t follow the stories of his reported downward spiral. I didn’t view the police video of his first DUI that was available at the click of a button on the internet. These were not about my David. The public one who stood on a stage and gave all he had to give to a stadium filled with screaming teens or a small club filled with nostalgic adults who had paid the price of admission. Those stories were about the private one and the price of admission was paid by him, his family and friends.
    When I first learned of David Cassidy being rushed to the hospital in need of a liver transplant, he again was on my mind. I never thought he wouldn’t recover. He was David Cassidy, after all. He had provided so much joy and happiness to the World that the World owed this to him. I said a prayer and went about my day. As the weekend approached and his health continued to decline, I found myself, once again, wanting to read everything I could about him. This time though, it wasn’t about his life, it was about his impending death. David like so many years earlier was all I could think about. I prayed. I cried. The vibrant, very talented boy who had stolen my heart 45 years earlier was now a spiritless, very sick man who was breaking it.
    Upon hearing the news that David Cassidy had passed away, I grieved. I grieved for David, for his family and his friends. I also grieved for that “some other time”. It was now gone, forever. It went with a man who recognized in the end that like all of us, there are too many “some other times”. His daughter, Katie Cassidy, shared his final words with the World, “so much wasted time.” David Cassidy, in the worst of circumstances still provided one more thing to his fans. He reminded all of us to treasure something far more valuable than records, posters, or pukka beads. Time.

      Judith, thanks for posting your nice essay, I can relate to almost exactly everything you write, except I dont live in America and wasnt able to watch the PF. Even if I didnt follow him through the years, he obviously still was there, somewhere in the back of my head, because I was totally heartbroken by his passing, and I also find myself reading, looking at interviews, over and over again. Thank god for the internet and you tube, his music and all the work he’s done will remain forever, so will the memory of him as the fine soul he really was!

    Dear David,

    For a long time since I’ve heard about a news of your departure, I could not find any words to express my feelings.
    It’s been so sad to accept that you are no longer here on earth, but I do believe that you are now staying in peace, celebrating reunions with your parents and enjoy singing songs your father had taught you, with your dearest dad himself, in heaven.
    Thank you so much for love and energy you have given us through all of your works.
    You, as Kieth Partridge, were my first love, but what made you so important and adorable for me was your honesty and sincerity as David Cassidy, keeping your door open to all of your fans in the world.
    Now I am missing you so much, but I know that you will live on in my memory forever.

    Happy Trails in your new world,
    Satomi

    Looking at David’s facebook page, and David talking about why he left PF, no-one could’ve coped with his work schedule. He had three careers – acting as Keith Partridge, PF vocal recording, and David Cassidy’s solo career. Plus two shows every Saturday and two on Sunday. And no lunch breaks, just interviews and photo sessions! I loved watching PF when I was thirteen on Saturday mornings when it was shown in the UK, but was clueless about all the hard work involved!!

      Back in 1973 when David did a UK stadium tour, he was so energetic on stage in his infamous cat-suits. He did 2 shows per day, one at around 5pm and another at 8pm. We went to the earlier one. In those pre-internet days, we had to go and queue at the venue when tickets came on sale.
      His schedule was relentless. The media couldn’t get enough of him, he was hot property!
      No wonder he was exhausted by 1974.
      In post 2000 concerts, there was no warm up, just David for first and second half, lasting over 2 hours.

    A lot of people on David’s face book page, comment on the necklace David’s often seen wearing, including in episodes of PF, made of pooka shells. I read or heard David made the necklace himself, while on holiday in Hawaii, but I’m not sure if this is correct.

    I am so grateful to have been go to six concerts of David. Here you are a link to a clip I took in Glasgow 2008. I got my ankle sprained and they took my plaster two weeks before. I travelled all the way from Spain and I don´t know how I managed to go just down stage but I did. The “Wow!!” look I got from David that night it really was worth.

It sounds like a dream come true, and also for your concert clip of David in 2008, he could really play guitar well. He was one in a million and I’m still grieving his untimely passing.

    As well as David’s son, I will also think about his band over Christmas. David said they had become his second family. I think David was in awe of Craig’s musical talent, and was so proud of his musicians, he let them do solos during his shows – Frank on guitar,
    Craig on his keyboards. Terri is very unusual in that she is a female drummer. And she has a beautiful singing voice – when she sang – ‘Brass in Pocket’ by the Pretenders while David took over to show off his drumming skills!!

    Thanks Barbara for sharing, it is a very important interview and a must watch for every David fan. It just takes you, and I’m still at a loss, he worked so so hard, and the only sense I can make, is his work on earth is done and he is resting in peace with his parents where it all began, I think after his mom passed and during her illness, he went into a deep place, and we don’t know what he was feeling. We know now he will never be in pain again. If he had to let him go, we all know he will never be hurt again. And that is what God and heaven means. And I believe David believed, and had religion, and the way he passed with family at his side, he had a beautiful send off.

    David was a human who was perfect and yet imperfect in other wasys. He played Keith Patridge but was not Keith Patridge. As we grow older we realize and our eyes are opened. He brought so much joy ..:so his supposed words of “wasted time”..is something Im sure we can realize .. we all feel that way.. at some point. I saw him last concert 3/4/17 front row 5feet away small venue. He had a cold but was truly giving all he had, he always did. Very disappointed in people who are saying evil things he cannot defend himself. This, I suppose is the price of fame. He is now free of the demons & sleeps with angels.
    No one on this site of course.. spoke of evil but I am sickened but such individuals.
    David get some rest. You have worked harder than most at your very young age , you lived & loved and were loved. You will always be number one in my eyes. I saw you in your you and 3 times in the last year and a half. Talented beautiful soul I miss your spirit but you wasted nothing and left a legacy most cannot come close to. Blees your heart.

    It’s so hard to believe that it’s almost been a month since David died. The fact that he did die hasn’t completely sunken in yet. It doesn’t exactly make for a holly jolly Christmas, does it?

    Felicia, I am so sorry to hear about your kitty-cat. I have cats too, and I know how it feels when one of them gets sick and dies. It hurts. As with any death, time has a way of healing wounds.

    Just yesterday, I had a bit of a scare with one of my cats. Her name is Amanda, and she’s an adorable orange Maine Coon mix. I saw her in the yard yesterday, and this foamy drool was stringing out of her mouth. (My apologies if I grossed anyone out!) It worried me, so I kept an eye on her just to be sure she was okay. I fixed her a plate of canned cat food, and she licked her plate clean. I took that as a good sign. She would not be able to eat if she was sick. Later in the day, she ate some kibble like there was no tomorrow. Amanda is still doing well, and I am so relieved!

    I know everybody is still very sad about David, and I hope that things will get better soon. Hopefully, 2018 will be a much better year. I know that David will not be here in the year 2018 and beyond, but remembering the good times and keeping family close is very comforting.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!

      I might watch that too. It’s not just David’s death I’ve been mourning. Around the same time, we also lost Mel Tillis and Della Reese. Mel Tillis was still recording some great country songs in the 80’s when I was growing up, and I remember Della Reese as Tess on Touched By An Angel. We lost some great ones this year, including David Cassidy. Here’s hoping that 2018 will be a better year! I know that the celebs we lost this year won’t be with us, but we just have to remember that they are in a much better place.

    The in memoriam show was on tonight on ABC. I was so happy to see David’s picture as part of the advertisement for the show, along with Tom Petty and Mary Tyler Moore and the great Don Rickles, and Glen Campbell! I wished David Cassidy’s segment was as long as the others, but I’m still happy that he was one of the stars they showcased.

    I still need some closure though. I really hope that they do a documentary about David Cassidy’s life . . . Danny Bonaduce mentioned that David wanted to do something and asked Danny if he would participate, to which Danny said, “anything you need, pal.” Of course sadly it didn’t happen. Wouldn’t it be nice if his brothers put something together?

    david cassidy was is and always will be my greatist of all male singers. his voice was a gift from god.he sang some of the best tunes written by very prolific writers including songs he wrote himself.i loved all the songs he sang on the pf show and pf albums,but the 2 1972 solo albums really were the heart and core of his popularity as the most gorgeous teen idols ever.i really loved cherish and the rock me baby lps.i felt when he sang each song on these two gems he was singing to me……his music was every bit as good as people like performer’s the carpenter’s,bread,elton john,james taylor,etc far from bubblegum.he was a true pop artist that had soul,rhytum,he could rock you and steal your heart away with song for a rainy day,lonely too long,go now,soft as a summer shower,my first night alone with out you.he was so fantastic and had drive in the song all i wanna do is touch you.what a voice ,what great songs ,what a beautiful, handsome sexy prince he was multi talented…..rest in piece my beloved david…im holding on to all my poster book’s records,etc i will for ever keep your memory alive…move over elvis there is another king of rock in the heavans if elvis is the king than david is the prince…i love you from a longtime fan,richard

      Richard, l could talk forever about David, his music ,voice, memories and the concerts where his ‘ Cassidy live ‘ album for me was better than Peter Framptons famous live album a couple of years later. But what you said about the ‘ Rock me Baby’ album in particular was exactly the way l felt about it and still do. I’ve seen my other idols, Rod Stewart, Marvin Gaye, Roachford. Love Boz Scaggs, Bee Gees, Joe Coker but it was always David Cassidy, the man with the golden voice.

    Just saw the interview David did with Joe Pavia in 1991, on David’s face book page. Joe Pavia was asked not to mention PF! But David seemed very good natured during the interview when talking about it. This was a period when David was trying to launch new music, so naturally he wanted to concentrate on this, without the PF constantly looming large in the background. I think later on, David seemed more than happy talking about the PF and his radio interviews prove he had lots of funny stories to tell, like Tracy having trouble on the triangle. But going on to say how lovely Tracy was!!

It is a story of love , faith, forgiveness and courage. I wonder if David realized how much he was loved. Your a beautiful angel David looking down on us all.

      I’m sure David knew how much he was loved and in some ways it was a hard cross to bear, in so much as, normal life ended with the fame from PF.
      His gorgeous looks were in a way a curse to him because he felt the music industry didn’t take him seriously enough as a musician – just a teen idol/pin-up.
      His longevity in the spot-light would not have happened based on good looks alone and was testament to his enormous talent.

      The more I listen to his music, the more I realise what a one-off voice he had.

        Felicia, what you said makes perfect sense. At some point, with any death, whether it’s the death of a family member (a person or a pet), the death of a friend, or the death of a celebrity you’ve been a fan of for many years, you need to reach the point where you can say that you will always love and miss this person/pet, but (s)he is in Heaven now, and you have to move on with your own life.

        Reading your post made me realize that it’s time for me to move on, as well. I will always miss David Cassidy and I will always be a huge fan. I will still be watching The Partridge Family and listening to that great music, both from The Partridge Family albums and David Cassidy’s solo albums. David’s life in this world is over and he is in Heaven with Jesus. But my life in this world is still going on, and I am going to focus on the things that are going on in my life, like my Dad with his illness, and his impending death.

        Felicia, you and you family are in my prayers. Everybody here is is my prayers. I love you all, and I feel like I have made some good friends on this website. I wish I had started posting here when David was still with us, though. What a great time that must have been!

        I love all of you, and God bless! And to David Cassidy, I am forever a fan. Enjoy Heaven, and I’ll see you there when my time comes. As you always said at the end of your messages, Happy Trails!

I know your going through alot, I still am very sad, over David, I know he’s gone, but why him? Just why? We must not close him out. We need to share and enjoy all he left us with. And Tabby’s up there, not wanting you to be sad, she reunited with her buddy, and there playing together and she’s happy. Please let me know what’s going on, or what happened? You did a great job, and we’re a loving mom to tabby. Losing David has really hurt, life will go on, and David is resting in peace.

I agree with Felicia, we must move on, we still have to live our lives and David would of wanted that for everyone. In this process , for me and everyone I will always have a happy thought and enjoy all he left us. David is in his home of eternity, and we must have faith in God. David loved his grandparents, they took good care of him up till age of 11. They made nice memories for him. There reunited now. And his parents, so David is not alone.

    Dear Denice,
    I am worried about you, feel better! I had a bad
    moment when I said I was leaving the website.
    I am back. Please give yourself a hug. I cherish
    our friendship! This website is a safe haven for
    all of us David Cassidy fans who want to express
    them selves. I read all your post, and I know you
    really do care about me. I am going to a Christmas
    party today. My sister texted me that she got my
    airplane ticket. She is going to call me today
    with the info. Thank you for the Christmas gifts.
    To whomever runs this website just know that us
    fans love David. We like to console one another
    on this website, so thank you for providing this
    service to the fans. Kelly I was touched by your
    post. Denice your the best friend a person

    Hi Felicia, I was very very worried, you have been through so much. Anyone here knows how much you truly carried about David, you were very worried about him being overworked, and I did see your thought ,and you were right, you are one of the truest David Cassidy fans, I wish I would of known you years ago, cause sister somehow I would of found a way for you to meet him., and we would of took Arcelia, Yvonne, and Margaret , and Claire, and Barbara, and Kelly with us. We are here in the first place for David, it’s unusual Felicia we are old fashion and we are pen pals, but it has been fun. In life there are down moments and losing David felt like a rock it me, pushed me so hard down, and if we didn’t have this modern technology, which I crashed course to be here awhile ago, during this difficult time, who would I have to mourn with. David really did have a large and the biggest gathering of the best fans in the world. And he was the best. I did have a surprise for you fans, I’m not sure where it is, I don’t want to interfere, see what happens. Felicia, my true thoughts are with you. Your strength will get stronger, through all that has happened, may your mom be resting in peace. We have to take eachday in are own lives, and make it a blessed day. Let’s all be thankful we can be here for each other. May today be the start of a new day, and more friendships be made here. John Daly you are a true David Cassidy fan, thanks for your posts.

      Denice, thank you, l do consider myself a genuine fan of David since the early 70s, and seeing him in concert at Manchester City FC ground in 74 .
      David has given me years and years of pleasure in listening to his music. His voice the very best, his songs the very best, the soundtrack of my life.

    thank you for your lovely post and thank you
    for your concern. I want everybody to know I
    will be on a plane to California next week for
    2 weeks. Our mission as fans is to keep loving
    David Cassidy and keep his memory alive!
    As Denice said so nicely may many more
    friendships be formed on this website.
    Kelly how is your dad doing? Everybody I want
    to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy
    new year! God bless all my friends!

      Hi Felicia,

      Unfortunately, my Dad is not doing well. It hurts so much to see him going through all this stuff with his health, especially at Christmastime. He will be missed by so many when his time comes!

      Words cannot express how sorry I am about the death of your Mom and the death of Tabby. What a terrible thing to go through. My heart goes out to you and your family.

      You’re right. We need to keep David Cassidy’s memory alive. I know his family and friends are still in mourning, and so are his fans. I am doing the best I can to move on from the grief, and at the same time, remember David by listening to his music and seeing his work as an actor. I am forever a fan, and there will always be a void that cannot be filled by anybody. David Cassidy was one of a kind, and he can never, ever be replaced. At the same time, I can honestly say that Beau and Katie Cassidy have definitely inherited David’s talent. Katie has proven herself as a talented actress, and Beau has a promising future ahead of him as a musician and actor. I know David would be proud.

      Hopefully soon, we’ll all get through the heartache of losing David, and the deaths and impending deaths of loved ones in our own lives. If we just remember to put Christ first, things will get better. He will help us get through this.

    Felicia, that sounds wonderful, you will all be together, your mom will happily be looking down on her beautiful family. What a great way to start the new year off. I have a idea and I’m wondering if you would like it,David Cassidy has a world of fans, some who might be shy about joining all of us here, so let’s let them know we would love for them to post a tribute to David, and join all of us here on David’s website. Jane has worked so hard to perfect all the great memories of David Cassidy, and I’m sure she’s not done, I feel Jane is a friend to us all. Now here is another idea Felicia, how would you feel if in my next letter sometime after you get back from California, I include my phone no. And we finally get to talk. We can still write letters, but I think it would be nice to have a cup of coffee and finally get a nice talk in. No pressure, I’ll let you think about it, we will still be pen pals, you are one of the most wonderful ,caring person I know. Your a true loving fan of David Cassidy, and you will always be. This way if we take the risk and talk on the phone, it will give other fans a chance to join the website, but I will still post, and you still post, cause we are David Cassidy fans forever.

    I love the concert footage when David ‘challenged’ Danny Bonaduce to actually play the bass guitar! I didn’t realise Danny went so far as to dress up in one of his original PF outfits. However, as David points out, he’s not wearing the right outfit – he’s wearing the red velvet and frilly fronted shirt which was Shirley’s outfit! Never the less, I think Danny looked pretty impressive playing the bass for the first time! I remember I always thought Danny was great in the PF. He was a very natural actor and he was only 12!

    back from California and we exchange phone
    numbers we will be only a phone call away from

Everything will be okay, Each fan here is special, David always said it was about the fans, what would we have done without eachother. Felicia Merry Christmas, and have a nice time with your family, we will have alot to talk about on the phone. To all the fans here, thank you for all of your posts, each fan is special and each posts means how special David’s memory is to them.

    My beautiful memory of David Cassidy is of him sitting on the edge of the stage to sing I AM A CLOWN. This was in London in 1973. Although David evidently had a hard and wild edge to his character and would have liked to have been a rock star I think this sad sad song sums up David’s life. I loved him. R.I.P. David: I wanted you. Sian Steed, England.

    • Ann Marie
      Posted December 23, 2017 at 11:10 pm | Permalink

      I AM A CLOWN is a beautiful song. And there’s a cry in David’s voice when he sings it. It’s perfection. I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not, probably is a coincidence. . . but words sort of remind me of David Cassidy and what he was going through in the 70s at the height of his fame. He received all this love from people and always felt unworthy of it. He would think to himself – do they love me or do they love Keith Partridge? There was a real person behind the mask of Keith Partridge. Just like there’s a real person behind the “clown makeup”. “Sometimes I feel I’ve been lost in a side show.” “Tell me you love me, make me real.”
      You were very much real David Cassidy, and we loved YOU!

      That video was just beautiful, Araceli. I got misty-eyed watching it and hearing that beautiful song. It’s been a little over a month since David died and it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. The one thing that’s helping me through this is knowing that David was spared the advanced stages of dementia. I know he was worried about that. He is in Heaven now, and God knew when his dying day would be long before any of us did. In a way, the fact that David passed away at age 67 is really kind of a blessing. If he had passed away several years from now, it would have been much worse. Dementia does terrible things to a person, and I thank God that David was spared that. As much as I love David and as much as I miss him, it comforts me to know that he is in a place where there is no pain, sorrow, or illness of any kind.

David and I had never met, so it made me wonder whether there was any significance to it when it comes to David signaling me through angels. Odd experience it was, because of the timing.

    It was interesting to read about David when he put on ‘The Rat Pack is Back.’ David was the director and co-writer. It was a very clever idea. He was strict with the cast and audience, expecting his audience to snap their fingers in time. It was a show and dinner, so they all immediately put down their knives and forks and got snapping! I think if you were playing an instrument in David’s backing band, you would be expected to step up to the plate!

I wish you Jane a Happy Christmas and thank you for everything you do on this website and also wish all David’s fans a Happy Christmas.

    I was watching the episode of the Partridge Family on TV where they were celebrating Christmas in the ghost town where the bus broke down. It brought back great memories of yesterday’s gone by. As we reflect and remember our memories of David, lets us not forget Ruben Kincaid played by Dave Madden and Tracy played by Susan Crough. Lets keep them all in our thoughts and prayers. Because that show brought families together all over the world together on Friday nights and taught us that nobody wins unless everybody wins and that to me is what I believe the true definition of family is all about.

    well said jimmy! i agree totally.i love the christmas episode also…..one of the many great pf episodes.46 years ago around this time the partridge family christmas card album was a big hit.to go back to a better time like that christmas,1971 music was better tv was better going to the movies was better and having david and the pf on fridays at night was even better.46 years ago tonight we would ve never thought here we would be losing the greatist and hottest teen idol and singer as we all share our sadness and our joy of what this man gave us.cherish is the word i use to describe david.thank god for david his music,all the beautiful portraits,poster’s and things to hold onto forever and the pf show….but most of all this website .god bless and merry christmas to all the fans here.

    David on BBC TOTP’s Christmas Eve, wandering around Syon Park in London. (Not Kew Gardens.) Hoped they might show the TOTP’s footage of David at Heathrow Airport, a special guest in a white suit. Twelve hours flying to the UK, three minutes singing, twelve hours flying home, then straight back to work on the PF!! I used to think David’s singing at Heathrow was so good, it must’ve been recorded, but it wasn’t!

    My thoughts have been with everyone on this Christmas Day, including David Cassidy’s family and friends, and of course David Cassidy. My Mom bought me a DVD collection of The Partridge Family for Christmas—all 96 episodes! I haven’t watched that show in ages. Some years ago, our VCR went on the blink, and I haven’t been able to watch the Partridge Family episodes I taped when the show was on Nick At Night. It was so great to watch that show again! The only sad thing was, it made me miss David Cassidy that much more. I guess I’ve been remembering him in his Keith Partridge days, with his shaggy, dark brown, shoulder-length hair, puka shell necklace, form-fitting shirts, sexy bell-bottoms, and boots. Not to mention those sparkling, gorgeous eyes, breathy voice, and sexy smile! Words cannot express how much I miss David Cassidy!

    I hope David’s family, friends, and fans had a Merry Christmas. I know it”s been difficult and sad, now that David is gone. It will take time, but we’ll all get through this. We’re all in this together!

    It is very funny to listen to David talking on the radio about his famous Keith Partridge hair – it was created by Jeffrey Spirit, the hair stylist for Screen Gems and the PF. Lots of people wanted David’s hair, and asked Jeffrey to cut it just like David’s- regardless if they had any hair or their hair was curly! David says his hair got better as the PF went on, really hitting it’s stride by series 2!

    This afternoon here in snow cold Cleveland Ohio, I was glancing and organizing my David Cassidy, memories, I just got done looking at my pictures , and I have the book could it be forever , I wasn’t sure , if I wanted to reread some of the book or just glance at the pics, I am not a big T.V. watcher, so especially afternoon T.V. I don’t have the T.V. on often . With the book in my hand, I put a Chanel on, not even knowing the next show coming on was the partridge family. Yes , I watched the shows there were two in a row. What timing, and what was the chances when I have his book in my hand. Arcelia, I loved the beautiful,video you made. You could just feel and know the angels are with David. Also your post about the feathers. I just could not watch the partridge family, not yet, I have all the sets, I did when the channel I put it on, and David’s book in my hand, and I was OK and found a peace in watching. I picked the right afternoon, to enjoy memories of David Cassidy. Bless you David.

    him. It seems that number one David is really
    missed and number two that David will always
    be loved by his fans. I keep watching videos of
    David on U tube, and it is such a comfort to
    see that gorgeous face, hear that awesome voice.
    As long as this website exists David’s memory

    I was blessed when David asked his fans to ask him questions. He chose to answer a question from me about what instruments he could play and if he still practised. David said he was still practising his guitar playing every day and this was how he relaxed. He didn’t get round to answering my original question about the name of the beautiful palomino horse he was photographed with in the 1970s, but a fan got back to me to say he was called Apollo. An apt name for such a beautiful horse!!

    I am just now posting my tribute , it has been so hard to deal with David’s passing. My deepest condolences to his Family and All His Fans.a part of my youth left me the night he went to Heaven, so many wonderful and precious memories . I saw him in concert March 18, 1972 in Knoxville , Tennessee . I was in the second row , arena floor. Also center stage seating. A gift from my Mother and Father. David looked so handsome, or rather Gorgeous !! His smile melting mine and all the girls hearts! That night while he was singing “I can feel your heartbeat ” I screamed loudly , I love you!! And in midsong he looked right at me and sweetly smiled and replied ” I love you too” ! To say I was overwhelmed is an understatement ! I have shared my story with many, but never ever will forget his voice, and that smile!! Priceless ! My mother passed away in 06 from Alzheimers , and I miss her so! Knowing David had Dementia made me so sad! But at least he went to Heaven knowing his family . I pray for a cure for that horrific disease every day. I put a Purple Heart on my post because purple is Alzheimers ribbon color for remembrance . My Birthday is Jan. 1. So as that day and New Year is almost here I will make my wish for a Blessed 2018 and know our Beloved David is celebrating with his family and watching over all who loved and cared for him. May you RIP My Sweet Prince , I will always Cherish you 💜😢🌹🙏🏻💔

(not being american) I must say, even if its over 40 years since done, its really so much fun and have a certain quality still, I just love it and never wanted the episodes to end. Been looking through most now, but there are two or so that I couldnt find with sound anywhere, those are called “Double trouble” and “Heartbreak Keith” Is there anyone out there that perhaps have them and would be willing to share, or does anyone have another suggestion how to track them down with sound intact for abroad viewing.

    David must’ve been a complete perfectionist at golf – love the story of him on the golf course in Toronto in the late 1990’s when he was starring in ‘Blood Brothers.’ Fellow golfers hadn’t worked out who he was – David was obsessed with the distance to the tee and kept changing golf clubs and working out potential distances – until they joked he must be a math’s teacher! Not sure how you could mix up amazing David Cassidy with a math’s teacher!!!

      Do curse the internet sometimes but oh so grateful that I can keep finding new clips on David which we would not have been privvy too, plus live in UK, so wouldn’t have heard so much about David. I have loved, more than words, reading and learning so much and listening to that voice that just melts your heart. In his videos of concerts and interviews, his LP’s and CD’s and his books, he will live forever in our hearts. Although to know we will no longer see him again is heart wrenching. But I’m glad I saw him once. For David’s sake, I’m glad he no longer has to suffer the judgement and humiliation that had started to happen in the last year or so. Bless him, he so wanted to carry on. So glad he was surrounded by so much love in his last few days. God Bless you sweet price.

    It has taken me some time to finally post here on David’s website, but before this year is out I did want to share how much David’s music has meant to me over the years. I, too, was one of his many fans as a young girl in the 70s. I, like David, moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles when I was 11 years old. It was a bit of a transition, but at times I thought at least I might run into David somewhere! Sadly, I did not 😉. I became interested in other artists as the years went by, but never lost my fondness for David and his music. To this day, I look back on the time my mother bought tickets for the 2 of us to see David in Little Johnny Jones tas the most touching thing she has ever done for me, and her way of trying to reach out to me as a teen.

    The years went by, I went to college, married, had the requisite 2 kid, got the dream job. Still listened to David’s music now and again but life was busy! Then, about 12 years into our marriage, my husband and I hit a rough spot. And I found, oddly enough, that listening to David’s music from the PF years and his RCA years helped me get thru that time more than any therapy did. It helped me to transport myself back to the young happy person that I had been when I first heard David’s music and the person that I continued to be on the inside – the one who had gotten lost with all the adult responsibilities. That music gave me strength, confidence and as a result, pretty much saved my marriage!

    I followed David’s career as best I could, bought and loved his new music, and saw him a couple of times when he performed here in L.A. Recently, I was so saddened to see that he was clearly having issues with alcohol and hoped so fervently that he could shake that demon. I come from an Irish family as well, have watched many family members struggle with alcohol, have found myself straying in to abusive patterns myself during times of stress. So I understood (or so I’d like to think).

    I have thought of David every day since he passed, have still not really been able to listen to his music that for so many years brought me such happiness, and at times, comfort. Just yesterday, while doing some New Year’s organizing and cleaning out, I came across my ticket stubs from David’s performance with the Pacific Symphony in Orange County. The date of the concert – November 21 – took my breath away for a moment.

    I have enjoyed this website and the feelings shared here so thought it’s about time I contribute! Thank you to Jane, best wishes to all of David’s fans for the New Year, and if they happen to read this, love and strength to David’s loved ones.

    “Happy trails,”

    I want to wish everybody a Happy New Year. It will soon be the beginning of 2018, and I hope it’s a much better year than 2017 was. It will be sad and difficult to go on with life as usual, knowing that David is no longer with us, but we have to try. As I mentioned in an earlier post, God spared David the advanced stages of dementia by taking him home to Heaven while he was still in the early stages. If David had died several years from now, he would have died not knowing his family and friends, or even remembering anything about his incredible career. And dementia doesn’t just affect your memory, it also affects your personality. I would hate to think of David going through that. As sad as it is to know that David is no longer here, we should all be grateful that he went to Heaven before the dementia really took hold of him. I wish his family, friends, and fans a Happy New Year. Here’s hoping that 2018 will be a better year for us all.

    Most of the things,that surrounded David,when I first became aware of him had nothing the to with why I liked him. The show was okay,quite funny at times. The teen idol thing was okay,his having a famous family,those things didn’t matter to me. What mattered,most and turned me on was his incredible pop vocals. He was 99% of the time better than the material,however most times.he brought the songs up to his level. The song which connects me most to David is the first song on his first solo album. When I listen to that song my shirt collars again reach to my shoulders and my pants flair out into elephant bells and i’m young and handsome again and ready to stay up all night and smoke weed and listen to that soft beautiful 70’s music that David was so much a part. At 60 years old, I stil listen to p/f d/c albums as if they were current, I know them like the back of my hand. I’d often hear David’s vocal influence in many other bands and artists like George Michael,Freddie Mercury and that guy from Spandau Ballet. His concert at the Philadelphia Spectrum was like no other show I’ve seen or heard. And I’ve been to hundreds of shows. It always thrills me to see an entire audience react collectively to an artist. To hear all those girls react the same way,to hear that entire arena scream at once and over and over in unison was an event I hadn’t really experienced until years later when I saw the Grateful Dead and everyone stood up and started dancing. David has left behind a huge in-released catalog of somgs. Unreleased songs and various other takes on released material. That’s something very precious and I hope I get to hear them someday. He brought me great joy and happiness in the past,and I don’t his death as an ending because tomorrow i can get outta bed,wake n bake and,blast “Rock Me Baby” and enjoy life and David more than ever.

      Thomas, a great post this, it could so easily be mine, my wife thought it was especially being 60 myself. Incredible vocal and always great songs. I still have other favourite artists myself some of them l’ve seen in concert,including Rod Stewart and Marvin Gaye, Boz Scaggs a big fan of too,all have given me years and years of pleasure, but no other singer has given me so much pleasure than the great David Cassidy.
      His live album for me is up and above ‘Frampton live’ it’s that good,the musicians and backing singers.
      The RCA trilogy three absolute classic albums, good enough to be in the best albums of all time, you only have to look at the personnel and that says they have to be good.The one thing though that makes not just these albums, but all of a David’s and PFs is David himself,brilliant. You obviously enjoy David Cassidy’s music as much as l do Thomas, so glad you let the world know about it, well done.

      I like your observation that David “brought the songs up to his level”… David Cassidy had a flawless voice. There are many great voices in the worlds of entertainment; opera; choral singing etc. but – of its type – David’s voice was perfect (to me). I sometimes think that David would have got even more appreciation and acclaim if it weren’t for the envy of other men. Sian Steed, England

    I was pleased to read David was concerned about ‘jump racing’ in the UK and challenged an interviewer about this on television and said they should lower the fences and he disagreed with the breeding programmes. Although David no longer kept horses he was still telephoning trainers to give them advice about their horses, which they took. David had become an expert at breeding and training thoroughbred race horses, beginning with his first race horse in 1973. As well as David’s acting, singing, etc, he found time to have an alternative career!!!

    Arcelia, I am so sad that David is gone, sometimes I want to be in denial and relive all the happy times. But I’m not in denial, and if this helps just remember the long hug David gave you, he knows you deeply cared about him. I don’t want to ever forget David Cassidy, the only understanding is we have to trust in God. David is at peace. He knows all us fans loved him so much, and we went afraid to tell him. Arcelia you made the most precious videos and your last video touched all our hearts , David Cassidy forever in our hearts. Hi Felicia, I m glad all us fans are here for eachother. A David Cassidy fan doesn’t ever disappoint, or disappear we will always be here. Claire I liked your post, I enjoy all the stories about David Cassidy and his passion and love for race horses. I wonder if the work he did to help with retired race horses, is still being carried on, I hope so, David would of wanted that. He had so much care in him.

    One of David’s fans on his face book page commented this was the first time they had seen a photo of David sitting on a horse. But I was reminded of all the photo’s of David in the 1970’s with his palomino horse, Apollo. Looking back, I realise the pair, David and Apollo, were photographed together far more than I’d originally thought, even on the cover of the UK magazine ‘Jackie,’ which every girl of thirteen read in those days. They once featured a poster of David’s bottom half, and then you had to wait a frustrating week to buy the second instalment for the top half! Or it might’ve been the other way round!

    Hi Yvonne, thanks, I will never forget David, even though I was so lucky to meet him many times, I wish I could of been at one of his concerts early 1970s. I loved your story on how your dad was so supportive and got you tickets. Your memory is a treasure . There was a shopping center close to our home and there was the David Cassidy towel, I wanted something that was of David at that time, for me, no my parents would not, and I would save my pennies from doing chores to buy a magazine that had David in it. I had to pick the best one, and I be in the drugstore for hours. I just knew than he was a caring person. He was just so impressive with his style all of his own, and a voice that just stayed in your ears, during boring school classes. His smile is one we all will never forget. To watch him extend his talent in years to come, was worth my time, as I followed his career in the entertainment industry. David Cassidy was the one I always kept my eyes on, waiting to see what he will be doing next. I loved all the interviews he would do also. Yvonne what is the interview on the today show? Claire thanks for your last post. Hi Felicia, I liked your post. We will remember together our David Cassidy who brought love to each fan here. To Katie, and Beau, you are in my thoughts and I hope you know your Dads fans care about how yous are doing.

The television channel were trying to cut it short but our David got his side across unfortunately it is not on YouTube.Have a great day.

    I agree with Felicia that it’s time for healing, now that 2018 has begun. I’m starting to feel better and starting to come to terms with the fact that David passed away. Watching YouTube videos of David has lifted my spirits. I enjoy seeing videos of different times in David’s life, seeing his beautiful smile and sparkling eyes, and hearing that adorable “hyeh, hyeh, hyeh” laugh of his. That laugh just makes me feel good when I hear it. It’s infectious, and I love seeing David happy. I need to smile at this time in my life, and seeing David’s smile and hearing his laugh makes ME smile and laugh. David was so adorable! You cannot watch him on TV or hear his music and not be in a good mood! I miss him like crazy.

      I just feel worse watching PF, his concerts, interviews (I loved his performance when he was on The View)…seeing him young, vital, so much ahead and knowing his fate, I just well up with tears….sometimes I think hey, I’m not sobbing then it’s all over and the tears just flow. I guess even tho it’s a new year, I cannot come to terms that he died and just 2 days after my birtdate…I thought he’d live much longer, at least into the late 70’s…just can’t shake the sadness.

    Posted January 5, 2018 at 12:30 pm | Permalink

    Denise – I will try and explain about the horse racing interview David gave, when another guest was talking about it. I haven’t seen this interview, but have read about it somewhere – one of the things David was trying to explain was about major horse races in the UK, in particular ‘The Grand National,’ although there are many other major jump races in the UK. In the US they have very few jump races. Instead of a flat race, with no jumps, in the UK jump races have long courses and huge jumps. Thoroughbred race horses are not designed for going over huge jumps at great speed with a jockey, and it puts terrible pressure on the cannon bones in their legs. The races often end with the horses being seriously injured, and this is what David was disagreeing with, the other person was trying to say it didn’t matter what happened to the horses and it was important the races were ‘challenging.’ David was also talking about the breeding of the race horses and how this affected their ability and strength, but I do not know anything about this aspect …

      I own many horses. The breeds are all different some are more ameanable to learn different things. However, like people, horses are different and you must find what the horse is talented at and train them appropriately. Not all horses race.: not all horses jump …and not all horses dressage …or drive …or saddleseat. A good trainer finds the right spot for a horse to succeed. David had a love for horses and Im sure the horses felt his understanding.
      Im hoping he has met some of mine that have passed on. God bless you David horses are noble creatures and well David was just plain noble.

    Thanks Claire, for your post, that is what I thought David was saying. That is David Cassidy he really cared. He loved and worried about the race horses, and you know he was 100% right. I wish there was someone to pick-up where he left off, all this is important what he did. Even with his music we had a singer who could sing, we loved his voice, we loved in words: the final masterpiece of each song he recorded. David Cassidy was like fine China, a work of powerful art of his own, his legacy will become greater , behind the man was a human being that was full of love, and he spread love, those lucky race horses , he went to bat for them. I seen the care in David 1970s, on t.v. , interviews, wherever David went he made the world a happy place, his knowledge is so missed, will love him forever.

    David Cassidy made such a huge impact on my life. I fell in love with him at 12 yrs old, bought all his albums which I am now collecting on cd and watched him on the Partridge Family every Friday night, and listened to his albums every weekend instead of going out like all the other kids at school did. I am collecting any piece of David Cassidy merchandise I can get my hands on now. I am so sad and hurt over his death. I will remember him always and he will remain in my heart forever and ever. I miss him so much and still love him as much as ever. Rest in Peace our darling angel David. You will never be forgotten.Till me meet again some day in heaven again.

    Beautiful footage of David on his face book page, arriving in Australia when he was young and happy. I take comfort towards the end of his life David had wonderful and supportive friends, such as Craig, and his band. It seems from his interview, Craig made no unreasonable demands on David and fitted everything he could around him. I want to think of the people in the US and over-seas, who were really there for David, towards the end of his life, offering their support.

    Footage on David’s face book page, ‘burying’ Keith Partridge! But Don’t forget this was a period when David was trying to bring out new material and move away from the PF. David did say in a much later radio interview he played the PF up, not down! We all know he thought the world of the composers and studio musicians in the PF. Someone commented Keith put David ‘on the map.’ But as we know, David’s talent and beauty put Keith ‘on the map!!!’

It broke my heart seeing him Deteriorate in such a short space of time,the only consolation I have he is at peace.I love him to the moon and back and that will never change.He was the best role model,entertainer,truthful,person in the entertainment business ever.

    There are no words to describe what happened. David Cassidy was such a large figure in my life and I loved the sound of his voice. He was beautiful inside and out. I hope this web-site always stays up and we can see his beautiful pictures and his fans can stay in touch with each other. I especially feel so sad for his Son – Beau – who David loved so much. I lost my Dad when I was 21 and you never really get over it. No matter how it happens, it hurts. The best advice I can give is to stay strong and take the best qualities from your Father and incorporate them into your life. I am sure David had so many great qualities that only his family knows about. I met him once in NY after the play “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” He was so upbeat and friendly. I went to 3 of his concerts and even spoke to him once on the radio. I will always love David Cassidy.

    Yvonne, I feel the same way, this place we are at now, will never change our minds, we picked are favorite best star. I saw David in 2013; I could just cry, my mom was not doing good, and she passed a few months later, I did just admire how he came out to perform for us after losing his mom in 2012; it was ruff going till everyone rushed the stage, there still was alot of distance to David, for a minute I felt at ease, knowing he had to do the show, with some visible issues, David came through with flying colors, it was a beautiful night, Erie PA. David was smiling , laughing and it turned out great, I think David had a good time, I was even able to show my mom some pics, and she said he looked good. Now June 2016, I had front row,thers the stage thers David, I knew also in my heart it could be the last. He did put on a great show, and I thought he looked better than 2013; but you could just see there were problems, affected , not the happy David, after I spoke to him, I took the rest of the show, to be serious within myself, I wanted to go backstage, I think he would of enjoyed seeing my collage up close, I just didn’t have the strength to take a chance something would go wrong, and I didn’t want to ruin the memories that were great. I’m glad I said thank you to him, and I didn’t care who thought what behind me. But everyone was nice, and curious about all my pics. David’s fan s are very special. My sister asked me why I wasn’t up dancing, like she was. I was numb, and did not know what to do. I did have a great talk with David in 1981. He said he did like my letter. Yvonne all we can do is celebrate David Cassidy life, let him rest, and never forget him, and never waste time. I miss him So much.But, so glad we got to know him .

    Felicia thank you, I’m sad enough David is gone. I am happy to be here, with you, and every single important David Cassidy fan here. We David fans have a voice, and just loved David Cassidy with all the love we could express. Right now I feel so sad for what Beau and Katie have been through, especially Beau, the money issues, and all the grief but no Memorial. Some how some way, we the fans must show our respect and come together. Us fans our a team, we have all become friends, LETS MEET HALFWAY. David never let us down. Things must be a mess. It’s not a time to point fingers, I bet David was a handful, but we are human, and he was to. The man was a extremely motivated, talented hard working and deserves a memorial. Margaret what do you think.? I mean that, cause you always seem to help with questions, and you have been so helpful to us fans, Yvonne I thank you , for sharing what you know, helps us over here, David Cassidy fans never let one another down.

      Hi Denice,The Site Is …..Just David International Fan Club he was part of it for 30 years which you got a monthly news letter,Sue has left a message on it as fans have been asking about a memorial,she said the family has decided against it,but the fans should consider a live internet link up which has never been done before,and if any help was needed she would lend a helping hand. Don’t know how Margaret wasn’t able to locate it.Denice I don’t know if you are on facebook because that’s the only way you can enter the site.Good luck my friend and take care love Yvonne.

        Denice,

        I don’t have a good idea, but thanks for the kudos. At some point, I’d like to see some permanent Alzheizer’s fund set up in David’s name, though, since it was a cause he was passionate about.

        Yvonne,

        I can’t “locate” that particular club on Facebook if Facebook will not let me see it.

        Copied and pasted from Facebook: We couldn’t find anything for just david international fan club

        I have a snippet of it from the snipping tool if you need absolute proof that it does not come up on my Facebook account. If the system would have allowed me to copy and paste it, you’d see that here. At any rate, Facebook does not give uniform results to everybody any more than the internet search engines do these days. And not everybody is on Facebook.

        It was a simple request I’d made, but I see that you have now typed out the requested information for Denice.

    Thanks Yvonne, no I’m not on facebook, I do take your word, he did have a international fan club, and many fans world wide. Maybe everyone still needs more time to reconsider, how to work it all out. I feel for Sue, you just have to. I believe she had ruff times, No doubt, you couldn’t stay mad at David. She was there for him. If it’s done through the internet, I got homework to do. I over reacted, but I did stop to think, the family is still going through alot. Us fans still feel were not healed. The weather everywhere is not going to good. Let’s just pray, it will work out. Yvonne you are a dear.

    I’ve just read what Sue has sent to the Just David Internationl Fan club about public memorial. It doesn’t say the family have decided against, it says ” they are not inclined”, which to me means not ready yet. This message came after a message was put up from those that run the site after fans asking about public memorial. This message asked fans to give the family time as it was too soon. Sue’s message does mention about it the fans doing something and a live internet link up.

    Also David’s fans in the uk , which I am one, may want to keep their eyes on the tv schedule for BBC 4 channel during the months March, April, and May as this could be possilbly when they may put a tribute show on for David. As this tv channel shows quite alot of music documentaries and concerts and they have shown several tributes to various artists after their death, but they seem to show them about 4-6 months after, so thinking on that it is possible that they will put something on sometime during March – May as mentioned above.

    Love reading all the messages here with everyones memories of David. I’ve been a fan since 1972 and have seen David in concert 3 times, Wembley ’73, White City ’74, and Royal Albert Hall ’85, also saw 3 time in “Time” at the Dominion Theatre, London.

    Here is a copy of Sue,s letter. The family is not inclined to do a public memorial…everyone is exhausted. They feel if the fans want to do it,that should be what happens. I have an idea about streaming a live event where all of the fans could play Davids music post pictures and memories etc. I don’t think that’s ever been done before.If that is something fans would like to look into,let me know. And I,ll see what I can do to help.

    Sue’s idea is wonderful and very kind, too. I don’t know if all of us would be able to participate; technologically speaking. However, I hope it goes ahead and if so, we should be grateful to Sue for her thoughtfulness. Thank you, Sue. I can imagine that you have enough on your plate… Sian Steed, England

    Be nice if we all could meet at Madison Square Garden, or one special place David played, and not a empty seat with standing room, and celebrate David’s life, David like record albums, not the new way, he had old fashion values, David Cassidy was no fly by night, he was a big STAR who deserves some Memorial, I’m sure the Cassidy brothers would want to do something. We can’t bring David back, let’s give this time, to show gratitude to David’s memory. Yvonne the technology part is where it would lose alot of fans, I like how they did Michael Jackson Memorial and it was live on t.v. David Cassidy has fans all over the world, and fans of all ages, older fans I feel would get left out. Yvonne how would it work for us who are a little lost, like me.? I hope something will work out to show our outpour of love for the one and only David Cassidy who wanted to be remembered for spreading love.

      I don’t know how this would work for me either Denice because I am hopeless with new technology,if you read my post above you will see the only reason I have facebook. I feel he should have something held in his memory and if this is the way it has to be I would just have to accept I would not be part so sad!!! But the idea behind it is great because if your technically minded it means fans from all around the world share a very memorable day.Oh how I wish we could do something in his honour .Denice you a so right he wanted to be remembered for spreading love. Let’s hope if this takes of we will find away Yvonne.

    Hi Yvonne, I learned so I could be here on David’s website, I’m not on facebook, I just hope Sue and family will reconsider, even if it’s a year from now, David would be worth the planning, Sue has the support of us fans, I liked her I was glad when David married her, she did alot ,Arcelia is great with videos, she really is super great, maybe the fans could help Sue, let’s let time take its course, David’s family needs peace right now. I hope Beau is doing okay, And I’m still at a loss for words, cause I want something for him, at the same time, I don’t want to say anything wrong, cause I’m not in there shoes. Yvonne thanks for letting us know things. Have a nice day, till we ponder what could work.

    Meeting at Madison Square Garden would be nice but not everyone could travell there… I think Sue´s idea is really great… It had not to be on facebook only, so everyone could participate. Maybe someone who kows how streaming work can help. As we fans, are all around the world, we could do something like a chain, so everyone can go there during the time the streaming be online.

    The David Cassidy “We Cherish You” Fan Site (Facebook) finally posted Sue’s note. Maybe they’ll keep people updated. I’ll pass things on when I see them.

    Being in love with a very famous person – as a mere fan – must be very different, indeed, from being married to that person. “Walk a mile in my shoes…” surely applies… If you had a row with your famous man and he walked out of the door you would know that thousands of women were ready to take your place. That would make for a very unequal situation and you might find yourself keeping the peace and suppressing your true feelings, too often. Sian Steed, England

    Might be interesting to see his son, Beau Cassidy, who is also a performer, do a tribute performance of his father’s songs.

    How I wish that I had seen David and his brother in “Blood Brothers”. Although there is absolutely no substitute for live performances, it would be marvellous (though sad) to be able to buy copies of performances that David was in (but legitimate, official DVDs only…) I can dream… Sian Steed, England

    Just read Sue,s Post on facebook,my heart goes out to her and Beau,to receive the horrible,nasty,toxic derogatory comments she has received I understand the decision she has come to about a memorial.We can thank the haters,but as it stands right now I could imagine it turning into a circus. Thank You Sue for informing us fans who truly loved him.
