    Loss of a National Treasure

    The loss of entertainment Legend Dick Clark Really was hard to take. I felt like my heart was ripped out. I was apart of his fan base that stretched over 3 to 4 generation and well over 50 years respectively. I feel like i have lost a brother. I first watched him on American Bandstand in 1982 and I have enjoyed his shows and his personality ever since. I have always enjoyed ringing in the new year with him as well. Dick will always be known as America's Teenager because that's who he really was. Dick is and national treasure to many people in this country but in the views of the world he was the world's treasure as well. I speak for every fan of his when I say that their will never be another like him. We will forever be grateful for the joy and laughter that Dick and his Legacy has left us with, my heart felt condolences to his family and a very heart felt thank you for sharing Dick with us all these years. Dick, you will be cherished and very sorely miss by all who loved you and remember you. well done Dick well done.
