Freddie Mercury – R.I.P. (1946-1991)

Sixteen years ago, my favorite singer, Freddie Mercury passed away at 45 years young. To this day, Freddie is remembered by family, friends, and fans and his legend continues to grow. I never had the chance to see Queen live with Freddie at the mic but the music they created is just as special now as it was when I first heard it. Rest in peace Freddie…..
