Thanks, LCat. I was going to post the Times obituary link. She was an inspiration to a lot of people, including me in my marathoning days.

She was so young.  Cancer is so cruel no matter who it hits.

RIP Grete

Cancer is cruel. It took my mother when she was 59. It spared my cousin, though--She got cancer at 16, but she's 61 or 62 now.

So true.  My mom as well.  She was just 3 days shy of her 64th birthday when she left us a little over 4 years ago.

I loved Trevor Bannister as Mr Lucas in Are You Being Served



Trevor on the right with 'Miss Brahms' and Captain Peacock'  (their characters in AYBS)  All three are dead now.   I don't think there are any of the cast alive now.

RIP Trevor.


It has been a sad week all round.

RIP

As far as I know Frank Thornton (Captain Peacock) is still alive, Lin.

Yes you are right SK,   I didn't mean to kill him off.   :-[

I have only one excuse and that is when Trevor's death was announced the person the on radio said he was the last remaining actor from AYBS.

I was so deeply saddened to hear of the untimely death of John Sullivan on Easter Saturday. :'(

Quote
The brilliant creator of comedy classics Citizen Smith, Just Good Friends and, of course, Only Fools And Horses, John Sullivan was Britain’s foremost writer of mainstream comedy. From Citizen Smith in 1977 to last year’s Rock And Chips (the prequel to Only Fools And Horses), he consistently produced engaging and heart-warming entertainment.

Indeed, Mark Freeland, BBC’s Head of Comedy, called John ‘The Dickens of Our Day’.




John Sullivan, the creator of Only Fools and Horses, stands next to Del Boy's famous three-wheel motor.

I too was sad to learn the news of John Sullivan's death.

Just Good Friends was a funny series many years ago and he kept on writing right up to date with Rock and Chips.   Probably he was best known for Only Fools and Horses.   The Green Green Grass was a spin off from that series too with Boyce as the star, just another of John's brilliant comedy programs.

RIP John.

Yeah, it was very sad to hear of Johns death.. I was also very upset to hear of Liz Sladens untimely passing recently..



Liz was best known to most people from her work in Dr Who.

Elmer Lynn Hauldren has passed away.  I can't remember the last time I didn't see one of his commercials when I was watching tv.

So true.  My mom as well.  She was just 3 days shy of her 64th birthday when she left us a little over 4 years ago.

My mom has been dead a long time now, but I still miss her. I can imagine how you feel when the passing of your mom is still relatively recent.
