It is unfortunate such a remarkable and well-known comedian. I miss with all who love Dede. For me it was a very fair man. It all showed an example of how to live. In any difficult situations need to laugh. There was a time of sorrow and grief, but watching the tape of this actor is impossible not to laugh. It seems, looking at him that he did not have any problems in life. No, every living person is a problem. He always knew how to control themselves. Also inspire people to good life. And all showed that life is beautiful, look at it from the other side!

We all mourn this talented actor, because such people are very few, but sometimes it happens in life, that talented people are leaving. I feel for his family, the children, they were left without a father. It is very true that the lit candles, because he was a very bright man. Of course everything was not enough, not enough of his jokes, his talent. But we must understand that the life of each of us ever end. Release and store cherished memory of him. May he rest in peace. For now he is in heaven is much better.

This world is unjust and takes us best. It happened with Dede. He was a good actor, talented comedian. Dede was always in the mood, smiling. So we will always remember it. Unfortunately he found the disease on the stage. Dede to his last days was with the audience, who loved him so. We loved his witty jokes. Where will live forever. Because his jokes will be transmitted from mouth to mouth, from generation to generation. Talents do not die. They live forever. So it will be with Dede. Remember their idols.
