It seems that celebrity deaths come in threes. First it was Shirley Temple Black and Sid Caesar, then today it was Ralph Waite. Entertainers come into our lives to make them brighter and to add some levity in the rough world we live in and when they pass its sad and like a part of us has gone with them. We will remember these three for their great works. Rest in peace Mrs. Black, Mr. Caesar and Mr. Waite. You have earned a final applause and curtain call.
Always honor the people who blazed a trail for you to enjoy the life you have today. The last couple of days some older people who are well known have passed away who made a impact on the world. It’s been nice that they have received the recognition for their life’s work.
It saddens me to see legends in any field pass on, it’s a part of life, I know. When they do leave us its important the younger generation know who they are and what they did to inspire people of today who are following in their footsteps.
For every Jimmy Fallon there was a Jack Paar and Johnny Carson. For every Maroon 5 there was The Beatles. For every Eddie Murphy there was a Richard Pryor.
Remember those generations before. Let their work never be forgotten.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Veteran comedian Sid Caesar, star of the 1950s television classic “Your Show of Shows,” died on Wednesday at age 91 at his home in Los Angeles, according to his friend and former collaborator, Carl Reiner. Reiner said he learned of Caesar’s death from a mutual friend, actor and writer Rudy De Luca, who had recently been visiting with Caesar. (Reporting by Alex Dobuzinskis; Editing by Steve Gorman)
Sid Caesar was a funny man who was a pioneer of TV comedy. A lot of comics owe their careers to this man.
