Brian Dennehy has died at 81. 

Very talented man. We both attended the same high school (not at the same time!). I saw him on Broadway in Love Letters opposite Carol Burnett and talked to him after the show. I mentioned our high school and he sang the school’s entire fight song! I didn’t know we had one. 😂

Brian Dennehy also makes me think of this amazing story from Quinn Cummings.

It's a sad day. However, he will no longer have to suffer with Parkinson's disease. He was a great talent, humble man, and all around a good human being. RIP Tom!

NOTE: With the passing of Mr. Lester, this means that the entire main cast of Green Acres is now deceased. This classic series, unfortunately, now joins our beloved I Love Lucy and our beloved The Lucy Show in this category.

The ridiculously funny Jerry Stiller has gone to join Anne Meara, per their son Ben☹️

I’ll throw in that this is going to cast quite a pall over this year’s Festivus, a holiday my grandpa actually acknowledges- complete with metal pole. Jerry’s legacy lives on!

The supreme Fred Willard has died. Even at 86, it comes as a surprise. Check out his recent appearance on I Think You Should Leave, where he plays a mustachioed, over-zealous funeral organist.

Glee actress Naya Rivera is presumed dead after disappearing at a California lake several days ago.

I hope she is found alive, but that appears unlikely under the circumstances. 

This morning (Mon 7/13/2020) local LA news here reflects a body has been found and recovered and once autopsy is performed, will be an announcement whether it's her or not (which sadly, it very likely is).😪

UPDATE:

"On the sixth day of searching a Southern California lake, Naya Rivera's body was recovered. The discovery of the "Glee" star's body, while not unexpected, brings a heartbreaking end to the tragedy. Naya was 33. "A body has been found at Lake Piru this morning. The recovery is in progress," the Ventura County Sheriff's Office tweeted on Monday, July 13. Police later told The Wrap and the Los Angeles Times that the body was in fact Naya's. Prior to the recovery, Naya was last seen swimming in the lake while out with her 4-year-old son, Josey, who was found alone in a rented boat. Following Monday's news, several celebrities expressed their condolences to Naya's family."

Such sad news. I hope an investigation finds answers as to what exactly happened. They’re now saying her last act was saving her son, but she didn’t have the strength to get herself back in the boat. Something must’ve gone horribly wrong.

Annie Ross, the jazz singer of legendary renown, has died at 89 (four days before her birthday). A couple of months ago I was rewatching one of my favorite movies, Short Cuts, which she gives an amazing performance in. It really shows off her wonderful vocal stylings as well. I looked up what she was up to and was sad to see that she'd been in poor health for awhile and there was a fundraiser to get her proper home care.

Wilford Brimley has died at 85; yes, only 85. It seems like he’s been an old geezer with di-a-beetus forever.

I swear I thought he died years ago. He was old in the 1980s on Our House.

You’re not alone. Years ago, Lily Tomlin told a story on a late night show about how she’d publicly referred to “the late Wilford Brimley” and later had to apologise, in writing, to Brimley’s camp, who were deeply offended. She read the letter out loud and it was hysterical.
