This was quite a trip down memory lane for me. So many of those we lost in 2010 were people I have watched, listened to and laughed with for so many years. I also noticed that quite a few lived to be in their late 80's and 90's. That's amazing!
May they all rest in peace.

Wow, so many people I did not know had even died. Funny thing, is that I know many because of the shows my parents watched, Rhoda, Baretta, The Rockford Files and so many more like Lena Horne who did not have a regular show but were still part of our lives.
