Yesterday, Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel at 87.

A well written article about Elie: http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.575072

I highly recommend reading his book Night it is a huge eye opener.

I wish we could add names like "ISIS" and Islamic Terrorism to this list of those that died today.

Hating people who hate just creates more hate. Why not spread love and understanding instead? Why not spread love for America?

Beloved Willy Wonka actor Gene Wilder died Aug. 28. Also great in Blazing Saddles & Young Frankenstein ... what a great actor.
Did you know he got his start in the film industry as a hostage in the 67' movie, "Bonnie & Clyde"?

Married to Gilda Radner, who passed away in 89'. Two great comedians...now gone.

I never did find a golden ticket...I hope he has his in his hands as he walks through the gates above.

Though I am not a fan of golf... who can ignore the fact that Arnold Palmer is as much of a symbol of golf as anyone can get?

Sadly, this gentle man with a true history of being a great golfer and a true humanitarian passed away this day at the age of 87 (Sept 25, 2016).

He gave inspiration to the sport, he was always friendly and talked to those who approached him. The game of Golf will never be the same.

May he be remembered and his family be consoled in the fact that so many will remember him fondly, not only as a golfer, but a truly nice person.

Robert Vaughn, Suave Star of TV's 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,' Dies at age 83 from acute leukemia.

Many here may not know him from the show beings it was from the 60's, it was another spy type show. Recently a remake in the form of a movie was made. His side kick in that show was a Russian spy Illya Kuryakin (played by Scottish actor David McCallum who should be well known to anyone who watches NCIS, as the doctor).

Yeah I liked him too!
RIP

[as an aside, isn't it funny how we say 'he died of acute leukemia at age 83... hasn't the world changed so much...fifty years ago, it would have been said he died because he was very very old... wouldn't even know what AML was!]

Florence Henderson, widely known for her role as The Brady Bunch matriarch Carol Brady, died on Thursday. Henderson had suffered heart failure, her manager Kayla Pressman said in a statement. She was 82 and surrounded by family and friends at the time of her death.

Born in Dale, Indiana she was the youngest of 10 children.

After graduating from Indiana's St. Frances School in 1951, Henderson went on to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. In January 1956, she married Ira Bernstein, whom she shared four children with —Barbara, Joseph, Bob and Elizabeth — but later divorced in 1985.

Prior to scoring her leading role on the 1969 sitcom The Brady Bunch, which propelled her to international stardom, Henderson starred on the Broadway stage — Wish You Were Here (1952), Fanny (1954) and The Girl Who Came to Supper (1963) — and appeared in guest roles on multiples TV series and films, including being the first woman to host The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1962.

Henderson starred in every episode of all five seasons of the family comedy series, and later appeared as Carol Brady in spinoffs The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, The Brady Girls Get Married, The Brady Brides, The Bradys and The Brady Bunch Movie.
She earned her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1996.

The actress is survived by her four children.
