  1. Very touching to see them listed all in one place. I was especially saddened by the death of Ric Estrada on a personal level, as he had been very kind to me at the 2003 San Diego Comic-Con.

    One note: I believe the Lost in Space B-9 Robot actor was Bob May, not John May.

  2. Thanks for the tributes. One note regarding Roy Disney. The image being used is a statue of his father, Roy O. Disney, who passed away in the early 70s.

  3. A tough year for the entertainment industries…

    This and other such lists have certainly given me pause and brought me face to face with my own mortality.

    I will certainly cherish each day just a little more in 2010…
