Alan Rickman has left us.

Severus Snape has left us. I grew up seeing his face alongside other magical characters. He was the half-blood prince.

However, he was not only a Snape. He worked on the stage and, memorably for me, Judge Turpin. Yes, he also sang with Johnny Depp.

I really wasn’t expecting this.

But, when I though about all these sudden deaths…I came to the conclusion that Lemmy Kilmister, David Bowie, and Alan Rickman were either 69 or 70. And they all died from cancer.

I read all the Harry Potter books and always imagined his face whenever Snape would appear.

I still can’t believe it.
