Baller Alert's Year in Review: Celebrities We Lost in 2022

  

"Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes.  Because for those who love with heart and soul, there is no such thing as separation." -Rumi
2022 was one hell of a year, literally. There were a host of celebrity losses that completely shocked the world. The legacies they left behind serve as living proof of the magnitude of their impact on society. However, for many, it feels that their time was simply not long enough. One of the greatest lessons learned in death is to hold reverence for the beauty and fragility of life. Our deepest sympathies to the families, friends, and loved ones who are undoubtedly still grieving.
