    LOL, he was funny! I liked how he collected T.V. Guides. I liked George's mother, Estelle Harris as well. "GEORGE!" - and the whole thing with Lloyd Braun. You could really see the two of them being married IRL.

    Come to think of it, I liked Raymond's parents on "Everybody Loves Raymond" as well. Age and experience tend to make for good acting, I think.

    Former Miss America, pioneering sportscaster and first lady of my state, Kentucky, Phyllis George Brown passed away at 70 from a longtime blood disorder.

    I was in high school and a big sports fan when she joined the NFL Today show on Sundays before the games and change the sports TV world as we know it. Hoe the NFL is covered today can be traced directly back to that show.

    Fred was a gem. We’ve been watching him since he was on Fernwood 2 Night. I think the last thing I saw him in was playing Amy’s father on Everybody Loves Raymond. Another comic genius gone.

    Lord. Eddie Haskell. Where has time gone. He was only 76. I read his obit and never realized he had gone on to become a motorcycle officer with the LAPD. Can you imagine being pulled over, looking up and seeing the officer who played Eddie Haskell? RIP Mr. Osmond.

    That's really sad about Eddie Haskell.

    Some of you will remember when I posted a video of Talking Kitty Cat, one of my favorite youtube channels. Well, I just found out Steve Cash committed suicide at age 40, two weeks ago. Such a loss. About maybe a year ago he let us know he wasn't posting because he was dealing with bipolar trouble. I will always miss him and his talking kitty cats.

    RIP, Steve.

    How sad. I wonder what happened to his poor pets?

    Ibanez disappeared when he was still little, and Gibson died during the series, so the cats also leave us. I think I read in a tribute that Sylvester had also died of old age. Sylvester was his oldest pet. Shelby-girl had become blind in her old age, and I think she may already be gone, too. (Yes, you can tell by the first two names, Steve also played guitar and wrote songs that cracked me up.)

    Steve got married in 2018, so the other cats' lives go on much as always. Years ago, I saw a highchair in the background in a couple of videos and thought, Oh! A baby!, but maybe that was her child alone because she made no mention of their having children together in her post after he died.

    I read that Steve's videos have been seen 770 million times. It makes sense, because if you love one, you start at the beginning and run through all of them to follow all of the storylines. And I can't be the only one who ran through them more than once.

    Thanks for the info. I'm thrilled that the surviving cats will be well cared for. It's a shame that someone as young and creative as Steve was unable to overcome his challenges.

    Ian Holm has passed. He is credited with ALOT of great movies, but I will always remember him as Sir William Gull (Jack the Ripper) in From Hell, and Father Vito Cornelious from The 5th Element.

    Oh my, how sad. I loved how he brought Bilbo to life in LotRs, but I must say he also really creeped me out when he played that company bot Doctor Ash in Alien. Marvelous actor. RIP.

    I just read this! How sad. Another comedic genius passes from this Earth. I read the article and he seemed like he was a genuinely nice man as well. RIP.

    I was doing some more reading on Mr. Reiner and I came across this:

    "First thing in the morning, before I have coffee, I read the obits," he told CBS News in 2015. "If I'm not in it, I'll have breakfast."

    Never lost his sense of humor.
