Jim Carroll, R.I.P.: People Who Died

Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old
Fell from the roof on East Two-nine
Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug
On 26 reds and a bottle of wine
Bobby got leukemia, 14 years old
He looked like 65 when he died
He was a friend of mine

Jim Carroll died of a heart attack in his home on Friday. He was 60 years old, and you can read a full obit about him here.
Most famous for the above song, he also wrote the book/journal "The Basketball Diaries" which was made into a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio.
