In Memoriam 2011 [PHOTOS]

Death is never a nice thing. Particularly when it’s a celebrity that you have grown up with and admired from the time you were a wee tot. 2011 saw plenty of sad celebrity deaths, as is to be expected from any year.

Launch the gallery to see a few of those we lost in the past year. Here’s to hoping that their stars are shining a little brighter on the other side.
