    Wow! I watch I Love Lucy every morning. She has to have been one of the few remaining actors still living.

    While reading about Don Grady's (Robbie Douglas on My Three Sons) passing, it mentioned that he was predeceased by his sister Lani O'Grady. I had no idea that Lani, who played the oldest daughter Mary on Eight Is Enough, was his younger sister. I remember her passing at a fairly young age.

    I do remember that now. I think she was only 40 something. I loved her on Eight is enough. . Very sad.

    I remember when Lani died. She was a longtime addict who just never could get out from under her addiction.

    Lani passed right before she was 47.
    Sadly, she had a history of anxiety / panic attacks which served to fuel her addictions.

    I had a major crush on Robbie / Don Grady when I was growing up.
    RIP.

    I knew about her panic disorder .It started everything. I sympathize with her.Anyone that has had a mild panic attack, knows how terrifying they are

    I just loved watching Doris on I Love Lucy! She didnt back down and her character drove Lucy to distraction!

    Nice little moment of tribute to Nora Ephron on tonight's episode of Real Time with Bill Maher tonight *sniffle*

    I read that Nora Ephron died of complications of myelodysplasia, which is the same syndrome recently diagnosed for Robin Roberts of GMA. Robin is currently preparing for a bone marrow transfusion. For those not aware of the syndrome, here is a website.
