  34. __ A 2__ Says:

    ___I feel so sorry basically because he was TOO YOUNG 2 die___ Did he have heart disease & NOT KNOW IT ?? or was a bad mix of prescription drugs the cause of death in his sleep ? That’s what my brother died of – OVER PRESCRIBED & a BAD MIX of anxiety drugs that caused MY BROTHER TO DIE IN HIS SLEEP @ AGE 35 Also contributing were drug residues that had built up in his bodily tissues that the psychiatrist didnt even care to test for that he’d taken during divorce proceedings The autopsy people told all of this to my mom – she was furious when she found out the “meds” that had been prescribed by the “good doctor” were CLASHING with each other

  35. Cindy Says:

  88. Diane Rocca Says:

    When I heard about Davy Jones’s death I couldn’t believe it. I am very saddened by this, as I watched each show, and saw three of his concerts in Boston MA. I liked him so much when I was a kid, I took a picture of my television set and the picture actually came out. Davy, If you are able to somehow read this I want to say we all die someday and I know in my heart there is a God of love there that created us. I will see you in heaven, or heaven on Earth, on the second coming of Christ. Because I believe in God, I know without any reservations that the world that God prepares for us will have those we loved and cared about. Faith. Time goes by so very quickly and my mom’s been dead since 1998, but yet it feels like yesterday. The passing of time,is quick, and we will all be together again, if we have faith. God Bless You Davy Jones, you are in my heart, and you will be there forever until we meet again.

  89. Diane Mae Love Martin Says:

    Dear Davy, I feel like I knew you. I grew up watching your tv show and I was the same age as Maureen McCormick,so I identified with Marsha Brady, when she got to meet you. I am glad I went to the Monkee’s Anniversary show in South Bend, Indiana show to celebrate my birthday last year. You were great, Davy. I wish you guys had signed autographs. I could not get over how much energy you had when you danced for the encores. So, you married a young woman and moved to Florida, and kept dancing up a storm, like you were still young, too. I think you wore yourself out. And to think I am now a widow and available. You could have had me, if you’d asked. So, I guess you did what you loved, dancing and singing until the end. You went out with a bang, and in a blaze of glory. All of my friends thought so, too. We will always remember you as one of the good ones. You will be a legend and live on through your music. What a great smile you had. I loved your little-boy cuteness and twinkle in your eyes. I loved the stars in your eyes when you fell in love on the Monkees’s show. It always made me laugh. I got shivers when you sang. It was so romantic. I had it so bad for you, Davy, and was in shock when I heard you had died. I loved you, Davy, and I was one of your gratest fans. You will live in my heart. I hope my husband,Greg, gets to meet you in Heaven. Greg was a fan too. He loved the song,I’m A Believer. I hope you can sing-on with the angel-choir there. I will see you in Heaven, Davy. Love always, Diane

  90. Karly Swinford Says:

    You are missed and loved more than words can express. Still feel as though I just lost my best friend. Wish I had had the pleasure of meeting you. God speed to you and may you rest in peace.
