I stayed up late watching it - very touching tributes to Lee Douglas! I feel like I knew him personally.

When Harve Holliday past always? I know his family move always in mid 90's and his kids went to somerlid with me.

Josseppie, thank you so much for posting that. For me, not being in CO all the time, it was good to see the "gang" again, albeit under such awful circumstances. That tribute made me cry. It was so touching and poignant. I saw him when I was there in November, and they're right, I'd have known that voice anywhere. Such a teddy bear. Such a loss to so many.

Ironically, I had just finished watching this when I switched to my FB page and saw the news about Whitney Houston. What an awful week....
