May he Rest In Eternal Peace.

I of course didn't know this man but oh how I admired his acting skills and loved the characters he brought to life. A million thanks to Meshach for adorning the world with his lovely presence.

This was sad to hear.

I JUST watched a couple of episodes of Designing Women this weekend - first time in I don't know how long - then heard about his passing. It reminded me of how much I really enjoyed him as Anthony Prayers for his family.

I loved his character on Designing Women! I still watch reruns every now and then.

This scene always cracks me up:
[Anthony gets caught helping the ladies and pretends to be a woman camper.] Connie: What's this camper's name? Anthony:(in a high-pitched voice) Cindy. Connie: Cindy what? Anthony: Cindy Birdsong. Connie: Birdsong I don't remember that name.(to other leader) Check your list. Anthony: I was late. I got on the bus at the last minute. Connie: Who let you on? Anthony: I don't know. Some white girl. Connie: Where's your application? Anthony: I turned it in. Connie: To who? Anthony: Some white girl.

R.I.P., Meshach.

You were just about the funniest guy I had ever watched. Your character in Designing Women was exceptional.
