Jaceegirl, thank you so much for this....I didn't know. I never watched the Waltons, busy those days w/babies, etc, so I knew the man from that show had died but didn't realize they were the same person. Fr. Matt always looked familiar to me but that's all I knew.
That is just so sad.
As I was looking online about the new Will Horton, whom I haven't accepted yet....but maybe will in time...........I came across a story that said Chandler had decided to leave DOOL in December...but got fired late August. I didn't know that.
