An in-the-know FrontBurnervian passes along this news that starts good but ends sad:
A TI employee and local resident will appear on Trading Spaces, airing Sunday at 6pm on TLC. But sadly, his neighbor who was on the show with him died March 16th of a heart attack. He left behind his wife and three daughters.
This person believes the show’s producers will mention the neighbor’s death. It seems like the right thing to do.
