Unfortunately, there's trouble brewing in his family, which is feuding over where to bury the bodyRead More http://studiocity.patch.com/groups/around-town/p/mikey-rooneys-family-feuding-where-to-bury-the-body

Wonderful. Most disgusting power play ever- squabbling over the issues of a deceased person. ThoughRead More Rooney should have had a will that specified that issue of burial. Still remembering Gregory Peck in that uniform right now...............

karma..goes around and comes around........maybe next will be Brian D"arcy~~!!

Mr. or Ms. D. Jude - If by karma you mean that he will have a wonderful afterlife because of the wayRead More he lived this life,then I would agree with you; Col. Foley was the epitome of an officer and a gentleman and a heckuva water man. If you mean something derisive, then you never met him, and I will pray that one day you will rest in peace.

If you ever get a chance to watch "Hail Sid Caesar!", it's a fantastic documentary. I'veRead More always found it fascinating that modern day comics continue to speak of Sid in awe and admiration.

No question Caesar was a genius but he also had a great eye for talent, hand picking his co-stars onRead More "Show" and writers, Mel Brooks, an 18 year old Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart and Carl Reiner to name some of the most prominent. I had the great privilege and pleasure to see Mr Caesar give a two hour talk in the board room of the Screen Actor's Guild on Wilshire just east of the La Brea Tarpits about 8 years ago. Although the once tall and strapping Caesar had become shrunken and bent with age, once he was seated on the dais with moderator Joe Mantegna, you'd have thought you had been transported back to 1954 as Caesar came alive telling us of his memories working with all these great talents while tossing out some of his best bits- the foreign language imitations being as fresh and funny as they were on "Show of Shows". It was a night I won't soon forget and I am so glad I was able to see him in this small and intimate room. Rest in Peace, Sid. We won't be seeing your like again any time soon.

@Dave, what a treat - I wish I had been able to listen to him speak in person.

I just saw this article, what a nice and special lady. I am shocked by the news. I am a retiredRead More school bus driver for this school for many years. She was always one of the people who the special needs children loved and was so good knowing what they all needed. She will be missed.

It has been almost 3 months since the passing of my beautiful childhood friend FrankieRead More Walden-Weaver. I am still shaken by the reality of her being gone. We went through many special moments in life from first boyfriends, first cars, high school experiences, marriage, and the births of our children and grandchildren. Although we were separated by distance at times through the years, we never lost contact with eachother. That was one of her special qualities. She never met anyone she didn't like and who didn't like her. To know her was to love her. I fully realize that my life was blessed and enriched to be able to call her friend. To her beautiful family my prayers and thoughts for you today and always. RIP my friend Rochelle Jackson

I cannot believe this. I just heard about this so my comment is a long time coming but I just haveRead More to say something about Mrs. Weaver. My two children were in Mr. Knobloch's class at Haskell and every morning Frankie would be there to greet them with her warm smile and a big hug. She treated my kiddos like they were her own and she just loved them to pieces! We love you too Frankie and may you be at peace and I just know without even thinking about it that you are in that great classroom in the sky loving all those kiddos the same way! You will be and are dearly missed! With love and prayers to you and your family- Sheila, Monica and Jonathan Nardelli.

I met Dick Clark in 1961 as a member of the audience at American Bandstand in Philadelphia. I livedRead More in Lakewood at the time and presented him with a key to the city of Lakewood. One of his questions was: What is the one thing you do not like about California? and I answered him loudly the San Francisco Giants, as I was and still a Dodger Fan. I also got to attend the Dick Clark show in New York City that same summer, and gave him a 10 foot Beechnut Spearmint Flavor Ific gum rapper chain, which was the thing to do.
Joann Norvell Atkins April 19, 2012 at 01:52 pm
LOVED DICK CLARK...he will truly be missed, R.I.P. Mr Clark...

My heart goes out to Patrick's family. What a terrible loss. Patrick provided the music for theRead More Woman's Club Fashion Show last September. He did a terrific job, and was a big part of making the day a huge success. He will be missed!!!
MarieSam Sanchez (Editor) March 11, 2012 at 07:37 am
I remember seeing Patrick at the Fashion Show too! As always, he had a bright smile on his face andRead More I agree, he did a terrific job. Patrick's vibrant personality and wonderful smile will truly be missed by all!

It's truly a gift when we can inspire and uplift even after we're gone.....especially after we'reRead More gone.

This story is beautifully written and very inspiring. May these lovely souls rest in peace and forRead More the family and friends they left behind begin the process to mend their lives from this tragic event.

So touching and so real! God bless the entire family

I am so sad to hear about this. Mr. Renaker was my advisor for ASB during my senior year at GahrRead More High School. There was a fight between me and the president and he was able to peacefully broker the situation. From him, I learned the art of listening, prioritizing and to take criticism as an opportunity to grow instead of fight.
rochelle wollman September 10, 2011 at 04:53 pm
Rick was a true friend of mine. We were both ASB advisors and counselors at different work sites inRead More ABC. We often exchanged ideas and shared many laughs. He truly gave his heart and soul at the annual track events for middle school students. I will miss you and send Diane my deepest sympathy.
Judy Dutko September 12, 2011 at 09:53 pm
Rick and I taught together at Tetzlaff JHS. He was a good math teacher and involved in studentRead More activities. He will be missed.
