    RIP Billy Mays

    What a horrible week, so many celebrities passing away.

    Billy Mays was found dead this morning.

    It's really sad, he was such a great guy, I watched his show "Pitchmen" every week on Discovery.

    He was just in that plane that did an emergency landing yesterday and was just fine... now he's gone.

    He was just on Conan as well. Mays was a very funny guy.

    He never yelled - that was the passion and showing through his commanding tone of voice.

    Yelling was his trade mark. Quite frankly, I'm glad he is gone though I'm sure someone else will now adopt his "screaming" approach to sales.

    Show a little sensitivity man. That's disrespectful to say of someone that just passed away.

    His pitching voice did annoy me and I really couldn't stand most of his commercials, but I was loving Pitchmen and got so see him as a real nice, upstanding guy who cared about what he sold and loved his family and friends.

    You'll be missed Billy!
