In the year 2022, a lot of significant events happened as Russia invaded Ukraine, Tensions between powerful nations US and China became tense, the Political system in the UK crumbled and COVID got eased up.

But in the year 2022, we lost a lot of imminent personalities and popular celebrities like the famous Sidney Poitier and Bob Saget. So with the utmost respect and grief, here is the list of personalities who we have lost in the year 2022.

At moments like these, I can only think of the song, ‘Here Without You,’ by 3 Doors Down.

“A hundred days have made me older

Since the last time that I saw your pretty face

A thousand lies have made me colder

And I don’t think I can look at this the same

But all the miles that separate

Disappear now when I’m dreaming of your face”

“I’m here without you, baby

But you’re still on my lonely mind

I think about you, baby

And I dream about you all the time

I’m here without you, baby

But you’re still with me in my dreams

And tonight, it’s only you and me, yeah”

“The miles just keep rolling

As the people leave their way to say hello

I’ve heard this life is overrated

But I hope that it gets better as we go

Oh yeah, yeah”

“I’m here without you, baby

But you’re still on my lonely mind

I think about you, baby

And I dream about you all the time

I’m here without you, baby

But you’re still with me in my dreams

And tonight, girl, it’s only you and me, yeah”

“Everything I know, and anywhere I go

It gets hard, but it won’t take away my love

And when the last one falls

When it’s all said and done

It gets hard, but it won’t take away my love

Whoa, oh, oh”

“I’m here without you, baby

But you’re still on my lonely mind

I think about you, baby

And I dream about you all the time

I’m here without you, baby

But you’re still with me in my dreams

And tonight, girl, it’s only you and me

Yeah

Oh, yeah”
