Ms. Nix in the Mix: 2013 Memoriam


As 2013 is rapidly coming to an end, Ms. Nix in the Mix would like to honor the notable deaths  of 2013. Each used their incredible talents to make us laugh, cry, and smile. We also would like to acknowledge the passing of those not in the spotlight, for they will forever live in our hearts. We continue to pray for their families, friends and fans as they deal with the loss but we also want to say you’re presence made an impact on the world and you will never be forgotten.
