Fans around Charlottesville continue to mourn the deaths of Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and Billy Mays.

"It's one of those things that you sit and you listen and you expect one and then the old wives tale is well it always comes in threes” said Pam Simpson. “And then you heard about this week. I think what really surprised me is that everybody truly just stopped and listened, and began to think back. I know in our generation Michael Jackson was huge and everybody stopped and started remembering where they were when they first did the moon walk or whatever."

No matter who was your favorite star almost everyone we talked to on Charlottesville’s downtown mall says they are just struck by how many notable faces and voices made their final curtain calls over the last few days.

"It's kind of sad all these people” said Patty Faircloth. “I guess because they are famous. People die everyday and you know it's very sad."
