What a heartbreaking thing to hear. I hope she finds strength with her family and friends through this horrific tragedy. Bringing another life into the world will be a magical time for her, and without her husband to share it with will be very hard. I love watching her in Californication- she’s extremely talented and is absolutely stunning. Best wishes to her and her family.

What tragic, tragic news; she will definitely be in my prayers. As I get older, I sure see how none of us has a guarantee that we will live long lives. We just never know. A good reminder to always let the people in our lives know that we love them ~ and tell them often.

This is beyond tragic. Her husband was an amazing doctor and guy. He helped deformed children all over the world by doing free reconstructive surgery. A real loss to the world.
