Marty Balin

balinAnother one I didn’t know till months after the fact. Listening to music on YouTube and did Jefferson Starship and in the comments that he is dead. Died in September of last year at 76. Atlanta lady back in the day. RIP Mr Balin 1942-2018.

Penny Marshal

Missed this one and a WTF moment when I saw under recent deaths in Wikipedia the name Penny Marshal. Yup that’s who it is and died several days ago. Can sing the theme song even now. Checked out the other cast members too see who else is no longer with us, LaVerne’s father and the land lady. Such a great show and a memorable character in LaVerne DeFazio. Goodbye funny lady, Penny Marshal RIP 1943-2018.

John McCain

mccainFirst posted on the Party website now here. A man I would have really liked to have had the opportunity to meet. A statesman is someone you disagree with and oppose what they are saying but will sit there and listen respectfully while they say it. RIP Senator John McCain 1936 – 2018.
