It’s been a week to remember out mortality. Close to home, two excellent comics journalists, Bhob Stewart and Bill Baker passed away, leaving many friends behind, and the death of comedian/director/Ghostbuster Harold Ramis was a shock to all of us.
So on a more cheerful note, I’d like to remind everyone that Abe Vigoda, Godfather and Barney Miller presence, is still alive and turned 93 this week.
I was once able to share the same general oxygen as Mr. Vigoda, and it is a moment I will never forget. I’m glad I had the chance.
I guess what I’m trying to say is…treasure those moments. Pick up the phone. Reach out. You won’t always have the chance.
