Do you remember the call he made to Capitol Radio's 'Help a London Child' and doubled the total amount raised??

Love these stories, but don't understand the negative comments. Haven't you ever heard of 'don't speak ill of the dead'? Comment away if you're perfect. RIP George.

Sarah Ray - do you not think that maybe the stranger was perhaps invited to that cafe by a friend who she talked to about being in debt? Just because someone is IN a cafe, doesn't mean they are spending any money. Or, she may have given money for a coffee. Ultimately NOBODY knows the background information about this story apart from those involved - so please THINK before you make a sarcastic & spiteful comment about a situation you know NOTHING about. It does not make you look clever - it makes you look shallow, bitter and cold-hearted. The whole point about these posts is for people to post NICE comments about George Michael. Were you not taught common courtesy? Were you not told "if you can't say anything nice, it is better to say nothing at all"? Even if you did not like him or his music, or you thought he was an awful person... that is fine... they are your thoughts... no-one else's. That's the way THOSE kinds of thoughts should remain... to yourself.
