A Farewell Tribute

It's been a while since I have talked about or mentioned DeForest.

I came across this Tribute to him and sat and watched it this morning.  I cried some.  It made me miss him and Carolyn. 

So many people talk about him and mention such nice things that I thought I’d put it up as a post.  If you listen close, you may hear of some of the reasons I miss him in my life.

 

 

Here are a few of my special moments remembering De…

He was a great actor… and an even greater human being.

What a wonderful post, Pat. Those memories will always be with you. And I love knowing that an actor I admired for years and years was such a wonderful person.

I miss him too, as you know. I never go to comment on the fabulous lunch pail you got a few weeks ago, but I was a-droolin' over that one!!!

Whenever I think of Deforest, I think of gentleman, in the old sense of the word. Courteous, too. I love looking at your pictures of being with him and his wife. I would have loved to have met him, though I know I would never have been able to say anything!

He was an original, and so were the characters he created. He will always be "Bones" McCoy to me.

Thanks, Pat!
