RIP Harold Ramis. :( He couldn't have been very old?

He was very old and he'd been sick for a couple of days. Just couldn't recover from it. Ava and I were able to say goodbye to him the day before and give him a couple of mints. He even tried to bite us, which is so typical it cheered us up. So, it wasn't a surprise really. But I still cried like a baby.

Sorry to hear that Susanne. I've had to stay with all 3 of my ponies when they have been put down. Still upsets me thinking about it. :( Also had to sit with a friends horse when he had to be put down. She was away on holiday and I was the first person the yard manager could get hold of. :(

At least you got to say your goodbyes and I'm sure he appreciated the mints.

They mentioned they were still going through with the film. and that he may still yet appear in it. In what way, it's unknown.

Clarissa Dickson Wright popped her clogs at the weekend. She may not have made an impact outside the UK but she made it big (!) with the late Jennifer Paterson as the "Two Fat Ladies" pootling around the country on a motorbike and cooking, back in the late 80's and 90's.

Yeah - that was really sad 'cos she was a very interesting lady indeed. Last time I saw her on TV was on 'I'm a Celebrity' - mainly because she was in it as normally I'm not keen on that programme but Colin Baker was there as well and she really came across as such an honest and warm personality who'd do anything for you once she'd got to know you.

The press obits said it all really - you'll be sadly missed Clarissa :cry:

Obviously God wanted another cook to help at at a party he is giving.
Very sad news. I saw her in Basingstoke once, doing a food demonstration. We've lost a real character! #And she did love food!

RIP Clarissa! :cry:

The L'Wren Scott suicide was a bit of a shocker.

I liked the two Fat Ladies show, but I thought Clarissa was a bit older, here name was certainly a mouthful: Clarissa Theresa Philomena Aileen Mary Josephine Agnes Elsie Trilby Louise Esmeralda Dickson Wright. RIP :mrgre

Just goes to show you can be rich, famous and have a Rolling Stone for a boyfriend and still be unhappy. :shock:

RIP Clarissa. :(

Such a shock when someone kills themselves, awful for her family and friends.
