    Wow is right. Steph, that's just 10 years away for us (I too am 48)! Scary!

    Faithful viewer along with my DH, he will be missed. Thankfully left us some great memories to treasure.

    I'm sorry to hear about this. He bravely overcame an ETOH problem, and I know his health wasn't the best.......still, 58 is waaaaaaay too young to die, in my humble estimation at least.

    He will be missed.

    He was very young. May he rest in peace.

    Yeah. I kinda liked his part in "The Rock" too.

    58 is too young to go from a heart attack (My Father is 58 :uhoh21: )

    May he rest in peace

    BTW: Is it just me or does he remind you of Donald Rumsfeld?
