Rest In Peace, Dear Friends of My Youth

Henry Gibson, he of the Laugh In poetry recitation. I will never forget his little person holding his huge flower whilst reciting some of the funniest and worst poetry I've ever heard.

Mary Travers. What a voice she had! Puff the Magic Dragon will never be the same without her. Peter, Paul and Mary are now down to Peter and Paul.

And Patrick. Dear Patrick, who danced his way into the hearts of women, but had eyes for only one. What a brave man he was in life.

They say it happens in threes, and it looks like it's happened again. It sure makes me wonder who will be next.
