I am always very, very, very sad to hear of a death, especially someone famous. Even though we don't know them personally, we feel like we do. I was pretty devastated to hear that Tom Bosley passed away recently. I never knew the man, but he looked like the type of person who would make a wonderful friend, father, and mentor.
The LA Times' Robert Lloyd has posted a wonderful blog post about Tom Bosley, known mostly as Mr. C, but also Father Dowling, the dad in Wait Til Your Father Gets Home, and David the Gnome.
We even named our cat TomBosley, after the actor. Rest well, Mr. Bosley, you will be missed.
