I got up this morning with ideas of what i was going to post for Things I Love Thursday and then I found out that Alan Rickman passed away. This week has been so hard! First we had Bowie pass away, at the age of 69, from cancer. And now my dear Potions professor, at the age of 69, from cancer.
So, I’m going to share some of my favorite Alan Rickman things:
because, I have to get you right in the feels…
Rest in Peace my dear Professor Snape. You taught us about potions, dark arts, unbreakable vows, how to control our emotions, and that love can last a life time. Always.
I’m deeply saddened that you didn’t make it to 80 and get to tell you family this. But, somehow I think that you did this anyway. You were an amazing actor and I know that you had a great love of the Harry Potter books. I’m glad that I got to grow up with the books and movies and that my childhood was influnenced by such amazing actors and actresses and an amazing writer. Thank you for being my Professor Snape, my Blue Caterpillar, my Marvin, my Judge Turpin, and so many other great characters.
Now that we’re all crying. Here is the video that makes me laugh –
