Our new friend Ron, from New York, gave me a cd of the NOTEBOOK, wow, I fell in love with JamesRead More Garner all over again. He was wonderful, on the screen and off. No scandals and married for so long. A truly wonderful man. Thank you God for sharing him with us for such a long time. He will be missed. Antoinette

Andy, you are a troll and an ahole.

Power to the People! @ Jim you should get a handle on your anger issues.

The whole thing is so sad. It is unbelievable and beyond normal thinking. Another sad thing to thinkRead More about is that these attacks will go on and on until we have total gun control. Unless we control guns, there is nothing we can do to do these ugly events.

Wonderful. Most disgusting power play ever- squabbling over the issues of a deceased person. ThoughRead More Rooney should have had a will that specified that issue of burial. Still remembering Gregory Peck in that uniform right now...............

Let us only hope that all religions die off but from one disease;That of being found out.
Penny Arévalo April 5, 2014 at 09:13 am
Well, that was certainly a rude comment to make on an obituary. I'm sure there are other places onRead More Patch for that discussion, but this isn't one of them.
U - M April 6, 2014 at 09:46 am
David, even though I do agree with Penny that this isn't the right place and time to post this, butRead More in general I so do agree with you.

karma..goes around and comes around........maybe next will be Brian D"arcy~~!!
Lisa Ohlund March 29, 2014 at 01:11 am
Mr. or Ms. D. Jude - If by karma you mean that he will have a wonderful afterlife because of the wayRead More he lived this life,then I would agree with you; Col. Foley was the epitome of an officer and a gentleman and a heckuva water man. If you mean something derisive, then you never met him, and I will pray that one day you will rest in peace.
Dr. Richard Grossman, who founded his burn centers, starting in Sherman Oaks, died today. Patch file photo.
Irene DeBlasio March 14, 2014 at 04:47 pm
This is such tragic news for mankind. Dr. Grossman probably saved more lives than any world leaderRead More could ever hope to. He was a hero and should have been a Nobel Peace Prize recipient. When my family and I moved to Southern California in 1971 the only local hospital taking emergency patients was Sherman Oaks Hospital. He patched me up once for a minor burn. His incredible lifelong work ought to be recognized and celebrated by neighbors, by the state of California and by the federal government. He was an outstanding humanitarian and a wonderful man. Dear Dr. Grossman, rest in peace. My very deepest sympathy to Mrs. Elizabeth Grossman and son, Dr. Peter Grossman who will carry on in his name. Blessings and hugs to you both. It's a stunning loss.

What a wonderful tribute you wrote. Hugs to YOU.

George Vreeland Hill March 13, 2014 at 02:46 pm
I remember going to the funeral of a friend who was a police officer in New Hampshire. I have knownRead More his family for decades. The display of love and brotherhood was so big that it made the front page of the Boston Globe. I feel that same love in the photo above. Police really are brothers and sisters and the unity extends to all departments around the country. The respect is amazing. The bond is unshakable. My heart goes out to them all.
Penny Arévalo March 13, 2014 at 02:49 pm
True, and you see and hear it from "brothers" who didn't know him personally, fromRead More departments from far-flung locales. An on-duty death impacts everyone "on the job."
Sid Caesar has died. He was 91. Patch file photo.
GreenInOC February 12, 2014 at 07:07 pm
If you ever get a chance to watch "Hail Sid Caesar!", it's a fantastic documentary. I'veRead More always found it fascinating that modern day comics continue to speak of Sid in awe and admiration.
Dave February 13, 2014 at 07:27 am
No question Caesar was a genius but he also had a great eye for talent, hand picking his co-stars onRead More "Show" and writers, Mel Brooks, an 18 year old Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart and Carl Reiner to name some of the most prominent. I had the great privilege and pleasure to see Mr Caesar give a two hour talk in the board room of the Screen Actor's Guild on Wilshire just east of the La Brea Tarpits about 8 years ago. Although the once tall and strapping Caesar had become shrunken and bent with age, once he was seated on the dais with moderator Joe Mantegna, you'd have thought you had been transported back to 1954 as Caesar came alive telling us of his memories working with all these great talents while tossing out some of his best bits- the foreign language imitations being as fresh and funny as they were on "Show of Shows". It was a night I won't soon forget and I am so glad I was able to see him in this small and intimate room. Rest in Peace, Sid. We won't be seeing your like again any time soon.
GreenInOC February 13, 2014 at 08:21 am
@Dave, what a treat - I wish I had been able to listen to him speak in person.

@ Shelby: thank you for your voice of reason and compassion.
Melissa Katz March 4, 2012 at 03:11 pm
This was an amazing man. He did the work that the mainstream media does not do. He was a hero and IRead More would say an angel on earth, with amazing talent and guts. He was also soldier of truth. His death and the timing of it is very suspicious. I really hope the truth about his death comes out. He did not deserve to die and if someone took him out they should be found out an prosecuted.

rest in peace great warrior, bring on the investigation and let's start at the white house, dncRead More re-election team, and all the chicago partner's in crime and washington thugs, but good luck this is one of the biggest cover up administrations since the 1960 always under democrats?????

Sister Adele was a wonderful woman and I was blessed to know her and work with her throughout myRead More college career. She will truly be missed.

I am fortunate to have been one of her students in 1989. She was funny and an inspirationalRead More educator! I remember when she traveled to Hawaii on vacation; she returned with treats for us all. She was one of the reasons I later returned to the Mount to earn my MS degree!

I'm a teacher in Los Angeles and of the many fond Junior's memories I have, one stands out!! InRead More 1989 the teachers in L. A. went on strike. It was a frightening time for us. On the day we were to vote on our contract the teachers at my school, Marvin Avenue, decided that with the end in sight we could go out to breakfast and of course we chose Junior's!!! When we got there imagine our surprise almost the entire restaurant was taken up by teachers from surrounding schools: Overland, Clover, Castle Heights, Crescent Heights, etc. Saul went from table to table offering us free coffee and telling us he was on our side. He told us teachers were important and deserved respect and decent wages! Many times over the years family and friends have said "Meet you at Jumior's!!". We've had many great times there. But I'll never forget Saul's encouraging words back in '89!! It meant the world to me!! My deepest sympathy to the family'. Thank you so much for sharing Saul with his Junior's family! Sincerely, Gail Pine Teacher
