Edward Herrmann was 71 when he passed away Wednesday morning.

The actor, most notably recognized as patriarch Edward Gilmore on Gilmore Girls, lost his battle with brain cancer in a New York hospital.

According to his family, Herrmann was in ICU for nearly a month before they decided to take him off the respirator. Unfortunately, his illness never showed signs of improvement.

He leaves behind his three children and second wife Star. We wish them peace during this time of mourning.

Christine Cavanaugh, The Voice Behind Chuckie From Rugrats & Dexter From Dexter's Laboratory, Has Died At 51

One of the most iconic voice actors of the early '90s and 2000s has passed away.

You may not know Christine Cavanaugh's name, but her voice was famous around the world.

For years she gave life to iconic characters like Chuckie from Rugrats and Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory.

Sadly Christine succumbed to her cancer last week.

The 51-year-old suffered from chronic myelogenous leukemia, or cancer of the white blood cells. She died at her home in Los Angeles on December 22.

Christine was also famous for providing the voice of the titular Babe in the two live-action Babe movies.

While she didn't have any kids of her own, we're sure that every '90s kid is grateful for all of the joy she brought them, and she will be truly missed.

Rest in peace, Christine.

Chris Evans is basically the perfect human.

Seriously. He's like Captain America in real life.

The Bostonian actor took time out of his Holidaze schedule to visit nine-year-old fan Kenny Botting who is battling a brain tumor.

However, Chris being the most adorable superhero EVER didn't just visit Kenny, he brought gifts, autographed memorabilia, posed for pics, and even let the kids tie him up with a rope!

Looks like Captain America was really in a bind! LOL!

So Sad! Oldest Living Cat With Two Faces Has Passed Away

Oh no! This is so sad!

Frank and Louie, the oldest living cat with two faces, has passed away at the age of 15 from cancer.

And while her owner Marty Stevens is devastated, she also knows how much of a blessing it was that the cat survived as long as she did.

The special feline was born with two faces, two noses, two mouths, and three blue eyes.

And even though the cat has passed, her legacy has already been established in 2012 when it became the longest surviving Janus cat in that year's Guinness World Records.

These types of cats, who usually don't survive very long, are called Janus cats after the Roman god who had two faces, as well.

Frank and Louie died this past Thursday at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University in North Grafton, Massachusetts after the owner noticed the cat had become ill. Veterinarians decided to euthanize the cat after they determined it was suffering from "really bad cancer."

RIP Frank and Louie. You were really one of a kind!!!

Check out a video of Frank and Louie in action from 2012 down (below)
