    Mary Ann and Gary were people I thought "who had it all." And yet, they had some real hardships to get thru just like the rest of us.
    I do hope that their good times together was wonderful for them.

    I remember her from the early cable days growing up! 60 is way too young.

    I remember him in the first Presidential race that I was old enough to understand & really know about. I was so impressed by him.

    Many years later, within the last 5-10 years, he was in my city for a conference. He somehow got bad directions & ended up on the opposite end of town from the Convention Center he was speaking at.
    He walked into my place of business to find out where the heck he was & how to get to where he was supposed to be. I happened to be right next to the door when he walked in & recognized him immediately & was the one to give him proper directions.

    I was so excited & felt like jumping up & down like a fan girl & fawning all over him. But as a long time adult in my business place & supposedly a mature individual, I just politely gave directions & called him Mr McGovern so he'd know I recognized him.

    RIP George. You should have been Prez.

    Did you mean 72?

    This news made me sad. He always had an air of dignity to him.

    I don't recall it ever being mentioned here & I just found out myself, but Singer/Songwriter R.B. Greaves passed away in September. He is best remembered for the song Take A Letter Maria. For those of you that don't know the song, check it out here. I absolutely LOVED this back in the day...still do> RIP R.B.

    I remember hearing that a couple of weeks ago, because I didn't have a clue who he was, but I did know the song.

    Not familiar with this person, but thought it was extra-tragic that she died so young (would have been 33 in 2 days) and that she leaves behind a 10 year old son.
