That's sad. I wonder if it was some medical issue or some personal issue. Anyway, Sylvester's career was really on an upswing again. It is too bad he has to deal with this now.

There's a problem here    

I have no flip comment for this. Losing a child is always a tragedy. Dying at 36 is sad no matter how it happens.
