Oh god - I've got tears in my eyes watching this. This really made me emotional. Question, does anyone know what happened to John Dodds after Viv died? When/how did he die?

Honey, he wasn't just his FRIEND, he was his BOYFRIEND, John was GAY and lived in San Francisco while Viv lived in Connecticut.

Is Viv's sister Lou Ann still around? I know she did something as a tribute to Viv a while back.

 

Yes, she is. Earlier this year, Lou Ann accepted Vivian's Television Academy Hall of Fame award.

When Viv was inducted, was Bill also included? And, if so, who accepted for HIM?

Bill was also inducted. Barry and Stanley Livingston of My Three Sons presented the award to Bill's friend Patricia Barry.

OMG, she's still around too? Didn't one of those two brothers just pass away? Just read that Tim Considine (The Third Son)had left the series after a fight with Don Fedderson and that Bill absolutely detested his replacement on the show, William Demarest.
