  1. Lovely “send off” for a sweet and gentle man, Beth. ❤
    I owned his book but loaned it out, the one he wrote his love story with Gilda Radnor. My favorite movie is probably not Willy Wonka but Young Frankenstein, which really was corny and hilarious. 🙂
    I was glad he found someone else to love years after Gilda died. Blazing Saddles was another funny one. . . could say happy trails to him, too.
