Default Dinana Ross-Missing You.

It was 30 years ago this past winter we lost Marvin Gaye.

Later in the year Diana Ross wrote a rather touching tribute to him.

Hey Touhy. I tried to reply last night but ran out of time.

Yes,it's hard to beleive or even fathom that it was 30 years ago on April 4th,1984.

I saw it on the news and couldn;t beleive a father could do that to a son. (Of course I had no idea about the terrible things behind it.)

Diana's song was great,it reached #9 in March of 1985 (her final solo hit.)
(Not countning her smaller part in the #1 hit We Are The World (4 weeks).

Let's also not forget The Commodores (minus Lionel) with "Nightshift" that same month,reaching #3.

Yeah I remember that song as well.

There was a PBS special on him some years back. Can't remember the show but it also mentions the close relationship he had with Diana.

I figured all along the song was more than just his violent death.
