    I posted under the blog of David’s passing, even though I try really hard to understand ,the tears still flow, I have a special FRIEND Felicia, and Yvonne, Arcelia, Margaret, and even Barbara who I posted with. Such a joy to have been able to have a connection with real David Cassidy fans. May we all be blessed today and have a happy Thanksgiving, David was a giving and cared so much for others and he would want us all to give thanks and most importantly love to one another. God’s blessings,

      Denice,

      I hope you had a good Thanksgiving, despite the heaviness of the moment. Thank you for mentioning me. I value your friendship too.

      I have thought of David all day long as we all have. I have been watching videos of him on YouTube and reading posts from people on Facebook and on here. I had my biggest crying fit back when I wrote that long prayer, which I apparently wrote around the time he went into ICU.

      The only comfort I can offer you is that David passed away at a perfect time from his point of view because he finished the tribute album and then checked out before he went into full-blown dementia. We all wanted to get a donor, but looking back, I’m thinking that the timing was perfect and was what he wanted. He likely even prayed for things to turn out that way, I imagine. He’s not suffering from pain anymore, either.

      He went out first class, with his mind intact, and with the love and respect that he deserved. He and his family apparently had an extremely loving week together, the most love the his brother Shaun had had with him, which is saying a lot.

      His passing, from what has been said by family members and others on Facebook was an unusually spiritual and even joyful experience that was witnessed by all. I’ll message Felicia about it and hopefully she’ll write you the details. I don’t want to offend the less spiritually inclined on here.

      Take care,
      Margaret

        Margaret, i think u said it all. It is somewhat of a comfort to know if he had to leave, he went the best way he could. Meaning, i think he was so absolutely devastated by his mother’s death, and did not want to go that way. And all the ppl there w him! Beotheres, Sue, kids…..i am happy for Katie that she was there. She will never regret it. I comment her bravery. Wish i had it…..

So very sad just the same, when upon waking I realize that David is no longer here. I will be using his wine glasses I bought from the sale in upstate New York at my Thanksgiving table. Love you David.

    I am grateful that his passing was at a time of his choosing, without pain, and surrounded by his family. We wanted more time with him, but his prayers were answered to not progress into advanced dementia. Blessings and strength to all today and going forward. My heart goes out to the family especially. Continue to keep the good times in your hearts.

    David Cassidy was my first love. At the age of 8, I was a bit too young to attend his concerts and it took 36 years until I was able to see him perform live – about 10 years ago at House of Blues in Atlantic City. He was a dynamic performer, owning the stage, connecting with the audience and his voice was pure and strong. The concert was everything I hoped it would be and an evening I will always remember

    My heart is hurting. I hope his spirit knows how beloved he was and that he is free from pain and at peace.

    May his memory be a blessing to you all.

    I am thankful that was able and went to David’s concerts for over the last ten years. It help as a get away when ever I could when I was caring for my mom as she declined into dementia.

    Dementia is such an awful disease.

    Thank you David

    Thank you Jane , for keeping the website open!
    My heart grieves the death of David Cassidy.
    So many fans and so many people are affected
    by his death. It is a loss that will take a long
    time to heal. To my dear friend Denice who I
    became friends because of this website. We are
    all in this together. To be able to console one
    another because of this website is priceless.
    Denice I read your post about how hard you
    are taking David’s death. If it is a comfort to
    you just know David is in Heaven, he is at
    peace. So I am so glad I have made a life long
    friend with you Denice. We all will mourn but
    one day Joy will come, by the grace of God.
    I will always love David Cassidy!

    There are so many broken hearts in the world right now (mine included) upon the devastating news of David Cassidy’s death. While we all mourn the loss of this man who means so much to so many, we can be comforted knowing that he is in Heaven and is no longer sick. This Thanksgiving, I want to express my gratitude for the joy that David has brought into my life through his talent as an actor and a singer, and sweet personality.

    My Dad also has dementia and he also has cancer and has suffered a stroke. He is now bedfast and is in hospice care, but we are so grateful to God that he is still with us this Thanksgiving. It breaks my heart to know that David’s family and friends will have to spend this Thanksgiving, and every family gathering from now on, without him. I know they’ll be thinking of him and it will be hard, but I hope they will remember the good times and keep family close.

    I, and many others will miss David Cassidy forever, but I know I speak for all of us when I say that we are grateful for the 67 years that David was here with us. Much love to him and his family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving.

    I personally met David back in the spring of 1983 going to New York (manhattan) for a Seabreeze highschool choir/drama trip. I saw the musical Joseph And the Amazing Techicolor Dreamcoat he was amazing in the show. I remember we were all standing outside the theater waiting for our director to tell us where we are going to next. I remember standing in front of thoes gold rimmed glass doors and out he comes to go to his waiting limosine. I will never forget the screams i had at that moment. i still have pictures of him and me. i have his autograph and i stuck my head in his limo and got a kiss from him! He is so so sweet and soft spoken. R.I.P my dear friend.

    I feel sure David would want to be remembered for the many happy times in his life. Such as when his son, Beau, was born. I think the best footage of him available on the internet is when he was in concert in Glasgow, Scotland, in the 1990s. It’s obvious he was so happy during that concert, happier than he had ever been, and so were all his fans!

    In 2007 David was interviewed by Jan Moir when he was in the UK to talk about his autobiography, ‘Could It Be Forever.’ She told him she found the book rather melancholy. David said – ‘The last thing I want is for people to think my life has been sad. It has been blessed.’

    Rest peacefully David. I saw David in concert in the early 70s when I was a teenager and again in 2002. My friend who went with me in 2002 couldn’t get over 40 something women screaming and rushing the stage. It was great! What a cutie! Loved, loved, loved him and it makes me very sad. I still have several of The Partridge Family albums (and 8-tracks) and David’s solo albums. Anyone looking a nice Christmas album I highly recommend The Partridge Family Christmas Card album. Prayers and love to his family and friends.

    I was touched by your post! It is going to take
    a long time for all these broken hearts to mend.
    I am so sorry your dad is so ill. My mom had her
    second stroke 3 years ago, and is bed ridden. It is
    so hard to see a loved one suffer. You touched my
    heart with your post. I feel so helpless because
    my mom is in California and I live on the east
    coast. Kelly may God give you the strength
    to get through this tough time in your life!

      Thank you , Felicia. We don’t know how much time my Dad to live. His doctor said he didn’t know for sure. I’m guessing it’s just a matter of time. What makes this really hard is knowing that my Mom and Dad’s 53rd wedding anniversary is coming up in early December. I just hope that Dad will live to see it.

      I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom. That’s really hard knowing she is ill and the two of you live so far apart from each other. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Even though I’m Australian and we don’t have Thanksgiving here, I’d like to give thanks for having David in my life, appreciating his talent and knowing what a caring, beautiful man he was, the most beautiful man ever I think. I feel completely devastated at David’s death but know at least now he is no longer in pain or suffering. I’m sure it’s going to take me, and everyone, a long time to get over this.

    From running home on Saturday’s to watch the partridge family, seeing him in concert in Glasgow in the 70s and several further times over the years I can’t believe he’s no longer going to be a physical part of my life. it’s too hard to compute. I waited 36 years before I got to shake his hand and it was so sweet a touch- I treasure that. Got divorced 18 years ago and changed my name-added Cassidy as a middle name and not one person belittled me for it-they knew how much David means to me! I can’t bring myself to play his music yet but I will some day. I have always had a poster on my bedroom door and have a suitcase full of my 70s posters which have toured the world with me-my teen love in tow. Forever in my heart and will never be forgotten.

    I was just remembering something I saw on YouTube that I thought was absolutely adorable. Back in 1993, a bunch of David Cassidy’s family and friends all got together to do a “This Is Your Life” for David. At one point during the show, they played a video clip of David and Sue’s then two year old son Beau holding one of his Dad’s guitars and singing a little bit of “I Think I Love You.” David’s face lit up like a Christmas tree! You could just see the pride in his face, as he let loose with that famous laugh we David Cassidy fans all know and love. The first time I saw this, I couldn’t help saying, “Awwwww!” It was too cute for words! Anybody remember this? If you haven’t seen it, you can go to YouTube and type in “David Cassidy, This Is Your Life.” David would have been 43 years old at the time, and he was still boyishly cute. Just thought I’d share this with everybody to brighten up their Thankgiving. A great moment in the life of David Cassidy!

    Dear Kelly,
    Once again I am touched by your post. You have
    touched my heart again. Thank you for saying you
    will pray for me and my family. I will do the same
    for you. I will light a candle in church on Sunday for
    your dad. I feel we have so much in common. I saw
    This is your life, David Cassidy. On you U Tube
    many many times over. I also enjoyed when they
    showed toddler Beau Cassidy singing I think I
    love you. David’s face did light up, and he always
    had such a beautiful smile. I also really enjoy
    “The David Cassidy Story”, where they interview
    David about his life. They show concert footage.
    It’s kind of like an autobiography. Or like a
    documentary that David narrates. What was painful
    for David that his father stopped talking to him
    9 months before he died. Jack Cassidy was so
    jealous of David’s fame , from what I read in
    the book he wrote in 2007 title” Could it be forever”
    Anyway David had joined his parents and
    grandparents in Heaven. They will spend
    eternity together. I got a little carried away. Kelly
    know that you have found a new home and
    support system on this David Cassidy website.
    The people who run this website really care
    about David’s fans or it wouldn’t exist. I hope
    to keep in touch. I like what you have to say.
    Everything that you have said is heart felt!
    God bless! Peace be with you!

      Thank you , Felicia. It’s sweet of you to think of my family and lift us in prayer. It’s such a difficult time right now, with my Dad being sick and with this sad news about David Cassidy. Christmas will be difficult this year.

      I wish I had started posting on this blog a long time ago, before David ever got sick. It’s nice to be able to come to a website where I know everybody shares my love for David. On the night he died, I found some videos on YouTube announcing his death and I shared my memories of David and offered my condolences to his loved ones. Some people on there shared my fondness for David, and others were downright mean! I wanted to say to the haters, “My goodness, people! if you don’t like David Cassidy, why are you here posting on this webpage? Why are you saying these horrible things? The man just died, and his family, friends, and fans are hurting right now! Show some respect!”. When you say sweet things on YouTube about David Cassidy or anybody else like that, the haters will pounce on you like a kitten pouncing on a ball of yarn! The only difference is, the sight of a kitten pouncing on a ball of yarn is cute. I love knowing I can come to this website and post nice things about David without being attacked by trolls. This is a great website and I’m glad I came across it. I just wish I had started posting here when David was still with us.

    I just want to say that I am deeply saddened by David’s death. Like many teenage girls back in the 70s, he held a special place in my heart. I suppose we think our idols will live forever, but sadly this isn’t the case. With love to David’s family.😥😥

    Dear Denice,
    I am glad you are feeling better! I feel like I
    have been punched in the gut , trying to deal
    with David’s death. I am in the process of writing
    you a letter, hopefully that comforts you. Know
    that you can find strength in our friendship.
    God only knows how hard we are trying to
    cope with David’s death. I have faith in God

      Denice an Felicia: thank you both for being such wonderful fans of David’s. As you know I just came back to follow him six months ago; and I am grieving like I never left. Such was the impact David left on me. I am so grateful God led me back to him and I was able to enjoy his messages on this website and the chance to re-discover him those precious few months. I am going to miss that. I keep playing his wonderful music and listening to that amazing voice every day; I have also bought the PF complete series on DVD. I think it will help me heal slowly but surely. He was so multi faceted and wow did he have a great work ethic! He never stopped working and because of that he left us with so much body of work that we will continue to enjoy it for the rest of our lives.
      I am so grateful for all those 49 years he gave to the world. He made this world very very happy. So grateful he was surrounded by his loved ones and he was able to say goodbye to them. I am still heartbroken sigh sigh.
      Thank you for this website; it helps me heal.

    I was just 9 years old when the Partridge Family premiered. I am thankful that I was able to see David in person in Atlantic City, NJ three times. The last visit was with Sue, Beau and Danny Bonaduce as his warm up act. My condolences to Shirley Jones, his brothers Shaun, Patrick, and Ryan and their families as well as his children Katie and Beau and Sue, who was his wife for many years and in his life for the longest time. My prayers and love are sent to Heaven to David because he made me happy whenever I saw him on TV and heard his music.

    Growing up in the 70’s was the best. That’s how it felt to me anyway. David was a large part of that. It’s obvious now that he stayed on the road, giving to his fans, as long as was humanly possible, as long as he possibly could. Such was the depth of his generosity & the strength of his spirit. He inspired so much love and joy and hope and laughter and those gifts remain. Along with the music, the sound of his one-of-a-kind voice, every beautiful image of him on film and page. We’ll do his memory proud by putting more light, love, peace, joy & kindness out into the world. That was David’s preferred way, his natural style. Forever grateful he was here for as long as he was. There would never have been time enough. There never is for those who love. Thankfully, love lives on.

    ‘Does anybody here remember the “Thanksgiving” episode of Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman?” Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash were guests im this episode, and Johnny Cash played the guitar and sang a beautiful song called, “Thanksgiving Prayer.”. It aired on INSP the same night David Cassidy died. I was listening yo this beautiful song and looking at some pictures of David I had saved on my smartphone. The words to the song just spoke volumes about my love for David and how grateful I am that God created him. I also couldn’t help thinking of my Dad who is very sick and in hospice care, and also my Mom, both of whom mean so much to me. And also all of my loved ones including my pets.
    I probably should’ve posted this on Thanksgiving Day instead of the day after, but hey, better late than never! (BTW, Johnny Cash was featured in the very first episode of The Partridge Family. Remember? He introduced them when they did their first show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.). Here are the lyrics to Thanksgiving Prayer.

    Thanksgiving Prayer

    We’re come to the time in the season
    When family and friends gather near
    To offer a prayer of Thanksgiving
    For blessings we’ve known through the year
    To join hands and thank the creator
    And now when Thanksgiving is due
    This year when I count my blessings
    I’m thanking the Lord He made you
    This year when I count my blessings
    I’m thanking the Lord He made you

    I’m grateful for the laughter of children
    The sun and the wind and the rain
    The color of blue in your sweet eyes
    The sight of a high ball and train
    The moon rise over a prairie
    Old love that you’ve made new
    This year when I count my blessings
    I’m thanking the Lord He made you
    This year when I count my blessings
    I’m thanking the Lord He made you

    And when the time comes to be going
    It won’t be in sorrow and tear
    I’ll kiss you goodbye and I’ll go on my way
    Grateful for all of the years
    I thank for all that you gave me
    For teaching me what love can do
    Thanksgiving day for the rest of my life
    I’m thanking the Lord He made you
    Thanksgiving day for the rest of my life
    I’m thanking the Lord He made you

    Dear David,

    So sad, devastated by the news.
    You have been part of my life since 1971, when I was 9 years old. The first ever album I got was “Cherish”, you were my first love and will continue to be in my heart forever. I had to wait until 2002 to see you in concert, it was well worth the wait, and went to see you 8 more times until 2008. You and your music were always there to cheer me up when I was feeling low. Your talent was very understated. You truly were the original “POP IDOL”. I love you and will miss you always. Thank you for the music, thank you for being you. You will be greatly missed by all. Rest In Peace. Love Coleen UK.

    As painful as it was to not hear from David, he did not give us false hope. I am sure he had a mother and child reunion “on that strange and mournful day,” as the song goes. He has seen his grandpa and others on the other side as well, I’m sure.

    David was my first love, a teenage crush they call it, my dad was dying of cancer but he still told me to go to see the person who adorned my bedroom walls, who’s music was played nonstop but turned down so it didn’t disturb my dad, and who I chattered about at every opportunity.
    I lost my dad but he is always with me no pain anymore and now David has gone, no more pain mental and physical but he will be with all of us forever.
    Thank you David you will not be forgotten, could you be with us forever, yes you will.

    Hi Denice!
    I was touched by your last post. You asked me
    how I felt . I feel devastated. But I know God has
    a better plan for David. He is in Heaven with his
    mom and dad. He is at peace! I am sure he would
    want his fans to celebrate his life not his death!
    Denice we can grieve together and then it will
    be less painful. Just the fact that Jane is keeping
    the website open, shows how much she cares
    about the fans who are mourning the loss of
    David. I think the Grammy awards are on
    tonight, it should be interesting if David gets
    a mention . There are 5 stages to grieving
    first stage is denial, then anger, then bargaining
    and then depression and then acceptance.
    I just know I need to keep in contact with you
    on a daily basis. Did you read the post by fan
    Tricia? She thanked you and me for our post.
    I thought that was so nice. Well Denice I am
    going to take on the evening, a friend invited
    me to the movies. I want to forget everything
    for a couple of hours. You take care! Just know
    I really care about you as a friend.

    Thanksgiving, this year I feel is an appropriate time to reflect on the life and works of David Cassidy.
    Often described in the media as ‘former 70’s pin-up’ or ‘Keith Partridge’ he was far more than that, for me
    His golden voice was incomparable to any other.
    The UK tours of 2002 & 2004 were amazing and I thought David was at his best in his early 50’s.
    His albums around that time, ‘Then and Now’ and ‘A Touch of Blue’ were brilliant.
    Looking at his career history over the last 50 years, he probably crammed in twice as much work as any other artist of comparable talent.
    Feeling blessed for being able to enjoy the David Cassidy era.

      I loved seeing David at Wembley in ’73 but through the years his true talent proved he was more than a teen idol. I will never forget his performance in Blood Brothers.
      Those heady years in the 1970s were wonderful but David was indeed so much more than a ‘heart-throb’.

        Absolutely!
        I remember seeing David in 1973 in Manchester like it was yesterday.
        Brilliant performance, despite all the screaming throughout, but the more recent concerts were more up close and personal and soulful.

        Judy, I agree 100% . He was absolutely a LOT more than just a heartthrob. He pretty much did it all! From music, songwriting, musician, actor in movies, TV, theater to producing shows. Who does that these days?!! IMHO, he is the most underrated artist of all time.
        Unfortunately, the PF was both a blessing and a curse. He was typecast as a teen idol singing bubble gum music. Regardless, to his credit, he moved forward and persevered and accomplished so much ! I just wish I would have followed him throughout his career. Shame on me.

      Jan B,
      So true! I have been going through his history and David seemed to work non-stop! You know that from 1970-1974 he recorded 15 albums!! That has to be a record, and in between he was working on the Tv series and touring ! And in his fifties when most artists are either gone or at the end of their careers, he still was going strong. He was amazing! And because of his passion for his art, we get to enjoy all that body of work. How lucky and blessed are we!

I was lucky, I have a gorgeous pic of David that evening singing up close and personal with the fans he loved show much. I hope soon it will be shared for you all.

In the 1970s Friday nights had a permanent reservation in front of the old fashion t.v., watching the partridge family, I have no regrets, there. David and the cast of the P.F. brought joy. The world was a happier place than. So last night that was my thought.

    Good morning! Thank you for the
    post. It was uplifting. Thank you for
    reaching out to me as a friend.
    I had a really nice time last night
    I went to see the movie “Daddy’s Home”
    with my friend Jean. I laughed and had so much
    fun. Today I am doing laundry. Going to go for
    a walk. I do jigsaw puzzles, they really help me
    to meditate. I am slowly coming to terms with
    David’s death. He lived a hard life, so many long
    hours working. Always putting his fans first.
    He struggled with the alcoholism and then the
    final blow was the dementia. I believe he is
    truly at peace, and he would want his fans to
    be at peace too! So thank you for your post
    and I wrote and mailed you a letter yesterday.
    I get a lot of strength out of our friendship.
    Going to take on my day, until we meet
    again, God bless!

    Dearest Jane and family

    When i first heard of David’s illness a part of me went kinda numb. The mind has a funny way of working. Some how i pictured David with the long hair from the 1970’s and wondered in my heart how is this possible to happen. Then reality sets in and you realize you’ve grown right along with him. You find the years have passed not knowing where all the time has gone. From there my heart just bled. My childhood memories came flooding back in tears. The man i loved and admired is gone. No fan fare, no loud guns, just a few spoken words. So with a heavy heart i bid a fond farewell David, till we meet again & my best wishes go out to you and the families of this talented young soul. May he Rest In Peace knowing his work was truly done to make this a better world we live in because of him.

David had so much life in him, it’s hard to believe this has happened. We need to remember the good times and keep in mind that David is no longer suffering. We all will miss him like crazy, but we do know he’s in a much better place.

    Goodbye Childhood… Waking up to the horrible news of David Cassidy’s death on Wednesday morning was rather devastating for me! I had no words, but I had so many tears. It was hard for me to get through the day. I found myself just going through the motions and trying to stay focused. When I settled in last night, I became extremely depressed and didn’t want to talk to any one or have any fun… All I wanted to do was go to bed and cry, and that’s exactly what I did. Any one who grew up with me can remember my Bedroom… it was wall to wall David Cassidy posters, stacks of Tiger Beat Magazines, along with Partridge Family and David Cassidy Albums which were blasting through the speakers at maximum volume and bouncing my parents off the walls. My Friday nights were not complete without my favorite TV show, The Partridge Family. I remember my parents surprising me with tickets to David’s concert as an early 12th Birthday gift (April 29, 1972). It was my very first concert ever and I can still remember how excited I was! I’ve truly lost a big part of my life!! David will always be in my heart and be The # 1 Teen Idol… I will miss him terribly…. his amazing voice & perfect face – his beautiful being! It’s still so painful and extremely hard to write this! I’m gonna listen to some songs, but it’s very hard for me right now because of all of the tears… I Love You, David and I will miss you more than words could ever say!

    Lauraan, I just read your post, we all here together for you. I took it the news badly, my friend here Felicia been helping me. In 1972; you were so lucky that your parents got you tickets,and you went to David’s show, I met David for the first time when I was 21. Kindness person I ever met. I do mean that. I got to meet him 3 more times in different years. Kindness is still the word and thought of my meeting David. David’s talent not a ladder high enough. Think of all the good happy memories, and your tears will start to go away. Hurt will heal , slowy. Glad you posted with us.

    It is so heartening to know that the world including the media is celebrating David in a very positive light. He deserves these kind comments, because as you have experienced Denice, and as I have read from many other fans he was truly a very kind and sweet person.

    I am so happy Katie, his daughter, was with him and his entire family.

    David was a significant influence of mine as a youth. I was also a musician and my appearance and hair ended up looking like his (longer years) enough to where my nickname was “Keith.”

    Sadly, with a twist of dark irony, David died on my birthday and only minutes from me here in Fort Lauderdale. It has been a very dreary slump since.

    I will choose to see him at his best of times (vs his worst, as too many do) as he was genuinely a good person at his core. What he said on The Dr. Phil Show was absolutely correct…David was a person of love and caring. He wasn’t without his (mostly understandable) setbacks, but his true inner character was pure and real.

    His legacy and personage forever honored and missed. One major regret I have in life is not making sure I managed to actually meet David. If I could just go back in time, nothing could stop me.

David seemed to keep that hippie part of him always with him and spread love and happiness and peace in so many ways around the world. I feel like there is an energy of that love and happiness he spread that travels around the world and will continue to because of all he shared..

    I was lucky enough to see David Cassidy when I was 6 years old. My now deceased older sister Gigi, got the tickets. She was 16. Even as a young child, I knew I wanted to see David Cassidy, not Keith Partridge. I remember him dressed in white. He was so charismatic. I picked up on his charisma at a very young age.

    Years later, around 96 or 97, I was working in downtown Boston and I heard he was at Strawberries records and tapes. I was trying to get out to lunch a bit earlier, but my boss needed reports ASAP. I got out just in time to see David walking out to his limo. I yelled David!!! He turned and smiled.

    I always thought about him through years. I knew of his struggles with alcohol and how the loss of his mom from dementia/Alzheimer’s affected him. When I heard about him having dementia in February, I felt so sad.

    I believe he’s in a better place with his family. I always think of my sister, and how lucky I was l, despite our age difference, to have gone to my very first concert to see David Cassidy.

    Has anybody heard David singing “Danny Boy” with his father Jack it made me cry, it is on the internet somewhere ? David was a young man when he sang with Jack it touched my heart… And seems so fitting now the words of the song, as all fans who loved David will relate…. God Bless you all … Madeleine from Scotland.

    Dear Denice, Felicia, thank you so much for always being here and still posting. It really helps me get through this. It still hurts. I haven’t slept well since last Saturday when he was rushed to the hospital. I never thought it would hit me this hard. I don’t understand why I feel this way. since I didn’t follow him throughout his career. I try very hard to be positive and think of all the wonderful things he accomplished and how he brought so much joy to the world. I know he would want us to be happy and enjoy all that he left us. But, it is not easy. I’ll keep working on it. Thanks again, Denice, Felicia and all the fans, hopefully soon the hurt will subside. Much love, Tricia

    Dear Tricia,
    I was touched by your post. I feel the same way
    like you do. If it will be helpful in your mourning
    of David Cassidy let me give you my out look.
    It took years , probably 10 to 15 years for David’s
    health to decline. I am a nurse, so the best I can
    describe it that David was overworked, stressed
    out, spent at least the last 10 years drinking
    heavily. So it takes a lot of abuse before a body
    can go into liver failure and kidney failure.
    So the damage is done and his excessive life
    style resulted in his death. So I believe in God,
    I believe David went to Heaven. He is at peace.
    So you have to put your faith in God that he
    will help you to recover from all the pain you are
    in. I am lost, I am devestated, I hurt to, but I
    know that the only thing that is helping is
    reaching out to the fans for support. Tricia you
    have to start sleeping at night, and eat a good
    meal. Just say your prayers every day. David is
    not coming back. So we have to learn from
    his mistakes. I feel like crap. But I know just
    having someone say a kind word to me makes
    a big difference. So you are not alone. Post
    something everyday on this website until
    you feel better. I will always respond to your
    post. Just know that the hurt you feel will
    eventually go away! I don’t know if anything
    I said makes sense. I realize you are reaching
    out, I have heard you, I hope you feel better.
    I lit a candle for David in church today. This is
    a world wide website so you are not alone.
    You take care Tricia!

      Dear Felicia,
      You have no idea how grateful I am for your beautiful post. It helps so much to have beautiful souls like you comforting others and truly making a difference; because you have lifted my spirits like you can’t imagine. Thank you for your support, understanding and love. Yes, you are right David is not coming back (and those words hurt like a knife) but it is the truth. I have to be strong and learn from his flaws and take care of myself. I just wish David would have sought help much, much earlier; I am surprised he lasted this long.
      I just kept reading his posts telling us he was fine, and then after his long absence from the site, I just knew in my gut something was wrong (although always hoping and praying everything would be ok), and I literally prayed every night for his health. And then came that shocking Sat night when I read of his hospitalization. Oh did that hurt!! I just could not believe it; it was such a shock. I am sure everyone felt the same way. But, I keep thinking how lucky David was and we were that he lived to 67 when a lot of musicians and artists have died much, much sooner and how he was surrounded by all the people he loved. I thank God for that. I do believe in God and Jesus Christ and I’ve put all my trust in HIM. I have to trust in HIM and believe taking David from this earth was for the best; even though I want to be selfish and have him here for awhile longer. He is in peace now; no more sorrow or pain and I know even though I got back late I still enjoyed those precious months when he was still gracing this planet; I will always thank God for that. I keep listening to his songs: Saying Goodbye (is not easy); Junked Heart Blues; Half heaven, half heartache, Thin Ice, Last Kiss. Last Tuesday night, out of the blue, the PF song” I will never get over you” popped in my head despite not listening to it for 40 years!! ( I didn’t not get the news of his passing until the following morning.) He also has come in my dreams. I am sorry I feel like I am rambling. I just need to get it all out.
      Thank you so much for reaching out; and I will pray for all the fans to get through this. Bless you and much love to you. Tricia

      Madeleine loved him since I was 12 years old ,seen him every time he came to the UK since 1973, met in outside the theatre where he was performing Blood Brothers January 1996, the last time I seen him perform was Las Vegas February this year. His security stopped him signing autographs he said to me,if you can leave your programme at the box office with a S.A.E. I will get it signed for you, and 3 days later it arrived this was at Blood Brothers,Sue was with him and she was absolutely one classy lady. Thank you David you kept your promise and that meant the world to me .Madeleine I am also from Scotland.Nobody understands my heart is breaking loved him so much,he was a great role model for us young girls,I know he is now at peace GOD TAKE CARE OF OUR PRECIOUS MAN.

The hurt will always ache ,but that pain eases a bit to think about David singing, watch video of David, read a story about him, I read a recent one, he loved the track and race horses, I’m glad he found that enjoyment.

And the good news is that he will live forever in our hearts through all his amazing body of work. I also read the article about horse racing; What a wonderful piece. It made my heart smile.

    Dear Yvonne, David was my first crush I was born in 1963 and when I was old enough to really understand the feelings i started to experience, his posters covered my bedroom walls. His breathy sexy voice ? Then I resolved I was going to marry Mr David Bruce Cassiday. I even wrote a fan letter of course as a young girl not realising that he wouldn’t even get to read it among the many then thousands of fan letters that would have been sent. Two weeks past and at that age it felt like a lifetime no nothing… So I took pen to paper again and duly wrote to David telling him I wasn’t too pleased at not receiving a reply thinking I would have received a personal reply by now from him ?? Ah the mind of a young innocent girl. In actual fact I can’t remember half of what I wrote just hope it wasn’t too cheeky ? Anyway two days later the post arrived a big envelope with posters magazines and the like so I guess the then fan club got my letter ha ? I remember David talking on a show and he said back in the day that a fan was so upset at not receiving a personal reply ” WELL HERE I AM ” Yvonne I have followed David from afar at least you have seen him in concerts and spoken with him something you will never forget and hold with you forever… He has had an immense impact on so many and will never be forgotten please take care Yvonne and God Bless you… Madeleine from Scotland.

    Yvonne and. Madeleine, thank you for sharing your stories, you both have a special memory of David. Back in the 70s , good think I didn’t get labeled insane, cause I was crazy insane about David Cassidy, I didn’t care what people said, during a family argument I broke the t.v, knobs fell off, cause my sister changed the Chanel, I said laugh cause someday I will meet him, David is precious and cherished in my heart. I love him more today than yesterday, I got yelled at by a nun in highschool for not paying attention, and I wasn’t, I was daydreaming how I was going to meet David Cassidy, it just had to happen, I was to far gone, it was meant to be, that the times I did, I can share what David has meant, and I’m so so so glad that I was not alone , knowing the millions of fans that were next to me than and still are today.

    I know this is posted in Facebook, but I just finished listening to this podcast with Craig J., talking about David and it just blew me away! Craig shared some heartwarming stories about David and what it was like to work with him on his last project “Songs my father taught me”. I know many (including me) have been anxious and had been looking forward to its release. And, it may still be released. They played a snippet of David playing the guitar and singing a song by BB King. Wow! Yes, it’s not the David we are used to listening to, but it is wonderful and it is something David was passionate about. I really, really hope somehow we can reach out to Craig and let him know how we want so much to have this treasure released.

          I hope the album gets released too. I think it will get released since everyone knows how badly David wanted it to be made. Craig could include other things to fill things in. Perhaps the unreleased songs could be tacked onto the end, even though not a tribute to his dad. We all know the back story, that this album was his last and that he was not feeling well while recording it. We’d be grateful to have whatever he recorded.

He wanted this to happen for David that’s how much he loved and appreciated David.

    Hi Denice, Felicia, I hope you are doing well. I finally got a good night sleep last night. I listened to the podcast last night, and it brought me the peace I needed. Craig J. was a true friend of David’s and he told some heartwarming, sometimes painful stories about David; but for some reason it really comforted me. David last recording “Songs my father taught me” as you know, was something David wanted to do for a long time, and he was working on it over the summer (as he so sweetly would keep us updated on this site). I was heartened by the fact that Craig J did everything in his power to help David finish this as David was struggling in the end. It sounds like David did get to finish his part of the recording and maybe (and I am hoping so much) that Craig J might release it. David was so passionate about the blues/jazz music and he loved BBKing; so if the snippet is any indication, David’s dream came to fruition. I think one of the things that helped me with my grieve is the fact that David died doing what he loved best. (playing his guitar and singing the blues).
    Hope you ladies are healing day by day. For me listening to his music makes me believe he is still with us. It is a comfort. A big hug to you! God bless you!

The whole band seemed so nice. Felicia and I became good friends and this website, She has uplifted me during this time. We have to carry David’s memories, and enjoy what he did for us. He worked so so hard, I hope he is at peace. He was my favourite star ever. If I see a star in the sky it will be David Cassidy shinning bright. Thank you Tricia, have nice evening.

      Hi Denice, thank you for responding. I don’t know how long you were a fan, but I followed him from age 12 to 17 and then sadly I moved on. I never met him or went to any concerts of his since I moved back to S. America and he didn’t tour there. But he was a huge part of my early formative years. He uplifted me with his music and helped me get through some difficult times. I never thought his passing would hit me this hard. There were other stars that passed away during the 70’s like Denver, Andy Gibb , Karen Carpenter, that I liked very much, but I did not grieve for them like I do for David Cassidy. He was such a huge part of those years, that I feel that part of my life died with him. He worked so so hard that’s true, maybe too hard. You cannot work as hard as he did throughout your life and not pay for it in the end. I hope you will be able to listen to the podcast. Craig J. was a true friend of David’s. Life is so hard sometimes, so unfair, but I thank God we had him for as long as we had him. I’m keeping my fingers crossed his last recording gets released. Much love, Tricia

    Hi Tricia, I knew about David in 1970, but to be honest, I kept myself busy, I would hear and see clippings about David and all the uproar of anything that had to do with David. In 1972 I watched a episode of pf. and I had a flash in my mind, his style his voice , besides he has the best looks on the planet, I just wanted more of David singing, love, love his voice, you could hear and understand each word in whatever he sang, so crisp to me. And then he went into other variations of singing, and his voice was better and better, in theatre what a treat to see and hear him live perform to perfection, and the concerts were real and hard work for him, but the concerts were a ball of fire, had a blast. So Tricia thank you for the podcast, I really liked it. Still one day at time, Have nice day.

    I simply fell in love with DAVID CASSIDY not Keith Partridge when I was 14 years old. I was fortunate enough to get to see him live in 1972 at the DuQuoin State Fair in Illinois for my birthday and had front row center seats. I have loved him and his amazing talent over all these years. When I found out he had been hospitalized I immediately began praying for healing. I watched moment by moment for any news of him. On Nov. 21st I saw that he had passed away. My heart broke into a million pieces. My life will never be the same. I will forever have a DC hole in my heart that no artist will ever be able to fill. I have found it difficult to let him go….tears form in my eyes several times a day when I think of him…or listen to his CDs…or watch his live videos on youtube. I am so sad. I’ve began reading one of his books Could it be forever? And really seeing the true David and all his struggles, visions, triumphs, failures, passions, loves, desires and seeing him for who HE wanted US to see him. An artist to the fullest. One of the greatest musicians, writer, singer, actor…he could do it all and it amazes me that even at 67 he was still going strong trying to give his fans everything he could. I love you David…now and forever. You’ve blessed my life, you have given me hope, helped me see true love and so much enjoyment. May God bless you as you begin your wonderful journey with him.
    I think I love you sweetie.

    David will always hold a special place in my heart! I had the honor of meeting him in 2001 in Kansas City during a concert. I got to tell him how he really helped me through some really hard early teen years and how he made them bearable. He was so kind and thoughtful to me and gave me the most wonderful bearhug and a kiss on the cheek and also autographed my scrapbook I made about him when I was 16.

    I have to share a really strange thing that happened on the day of his death. I was listening to his music and the song Ricky’s Time came on and when he got to the part I guess this is goodbye I received a text from my sister that he had died. It was like he was telling me goodbye and not to cry like it said in the song. Although I did cry and have been off and on every since he died on November 21st a day I will not ever forget and also the day I met David I will CHERISH forever and also him! Happy Trails Dear Dear David!

It is so comforting to know you loved David in a very special way just like me. I was not being honest either I am having a very hard time with David’s death. I am alright for awhile and then it hits me He is not on this earth anymore and then I start crying all over again. I did not think this would be so hard but it is.😭 I am praying for all of you and please pray for me?🙏🏻God Bless all of you!✝️

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

    Thank you Jane for the radio interview links on face book. I listened to three from 2001 and 2002. He was so polished, articulate and bright. What a delight and treat it is to be able to go back and listen to someone who was so grounded, honest , humble and REAL. He will always have my utmost respect.
    He was promoting his album “Then and Now” and as it so happens I downloaded two songs from that particular album a few days ago: “Cry” and “Ain’t No Sunshine”. Wow, wow, wow. Of course those songs carry a special meaning now, but his rendition and his performance are absolutely superb! From the interview he mentioned he had been singing those songs especially Cry on stage and they convinced him to record it. And thank goodness he did! Thank you David!!

    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
