None of you would know who they are. But I miss my family more than anyone.

I do miss Winters. The master of improvisation comedy. The guy always cracked me up. And Carson too especially when he had Winters as a guest. Luckily the videos are still out there on television and YouTube.

All very good lists. I particularly miss Robin Williams, Stephen Hawking, Prince and Michael Jackson plus a bunch more. Some were way too young. Anthony Bourdain was someone that I never learned to like until after they died. I guess it works that way sometimes.

Too early though? I looked up my birth year, 1948.
I saw a bunch of dead people I don't know or miss. For the most part we are doing OK, we must be healthy -- that or else we are a bunch of under-achiever slackers. Prince Charles, Ted Nugent, Howard Dean, George R.R. Martin, Al & Tipper Gore, Steven Tyler, and Bernadette Peters are still vertical.

Here are some dearly departed I at least recognized from that birth year...

We lost King George Tupou V of Tonga
Ronnie Van Zant, rock musician
Rick James, singer
"England" Dan" Seals, musician
John Bonham, English rock drummer
Christa McAuliffe, Teacher, American Astronaut (I remember that day)
Nell Carter, African-American singer, actress
Johnny Ramone, American guitarist
Margot Kidder, Canadian actress (Lois Lane!}
Donna Summer, African-American singer
Henning Mankell, Swedish crime novelist
Snooty, Florida manatee (d. 2017 -- I had no idea they lived so long)

Wow, he will be mist, huh? That sounds pretty cool.

According to Genesis, the rest of us will just return to dust.
