It seems there are many posts dedicated to passing celebrities and I was wondering that it would be nice to pay tribute to them here.

Recently:

Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson dies at 73



Wayne Rogers, Trapper John on 'M.A.S.H.,' dies at 82




Veteran Actor Robert Loggia Dies at 85




Natalie Cole, daughter of Nat 'King' Cole, dead at 65




'Beverly Hillbillies' star Donna Douglas dies at 82




David Bowie who has died at age 69




'Grizzly Adams' star Dan Haggerty dead at 74




Glenn Frey, founding member of the Eagles, dead at 67

For what it's worth, Donna Douglas actually passed on New Year's Day of 2015, so she's been dead for about fourteen months. Grand Ole Opry star Little Jimmy Dickens passed away the very next day. He was 94. I remember mainly because I'd had the honor and privilege of having met both of them.

Nancy Reagan and her husband Ronald were totally in love as can be seen by any and all photos of them together.

This is what separates them from "convenient" and shallow marriages like Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Indeed, this is not good news. however, 71 is a fair amount of time to do your thing. I think we are coming to the time when a lot of the people who "made" popular music will be dying off. Most of them are into their 70s at this point. I try not to identify too much.....
