I Smell Cake*

Well they say that the stars go in three’s and here is a case of that being true. In the past couple of weeks three icons from my youth have past away.

All of them were stars in their time and provided their own brand of entertainment. Thank goodness that they will live on forever with their performances.

R.I.P and thank you for entertaining us.

Peggy Lipton

Doris Day

Tim Conway

Side Note:

*My brother, Joe and I would always say this to each other after someone famous died.
“I smell cake! If Uncle Bernie died, someone’s gonna have to go on a beer run!”— Dan Dorian

“My Cake” is the sixth episode of Scrubs’ fourth season. J.D.’s father dies and he and his brother Dan have to cope with it.

The Facts of Life

I grew up watching “The Facts of Life”. So it was sad to read the Charlotte Rae, who played a wise and patient housemother to a brood of teenage girls on the long-running sitcom The Facts of Life had died. She was 92.

Seems the stars of my youth are passing away. They provided years of entertainment while growing up.

Gone, But Not Forgotten

2017 is coming to and end and the videos of the entertainers, leaders and icons that we lost this year are coming out.

Here is one from Turner Movie Classics.

R.I.P. David Cassidy

Today, David Cassidy, pop culture idol of the 1970’s, has died as a result of complications from dementia. The musician and actor was 67.

I remember watching David Cassidy on “The Partridge Family” growing up.

Here is one of his songs that I liked.

It’s sad that stars from my youth are passing away.

Here are a few more stars that recently passed away.

Mel Tillis

Della Reese

John Hillerman

You will be remembered through your work.

R.I.P. — Robert Guillaum

Oh, man… here another star from when I was growing up. 

Robert Guillaum, “Benson” Emmy Winner, Dies at 89.

I loved him in “Soap” and “Benson”.

But listening to him as the voice of Rafiki in “The Lion King” was probably the best.
