    The older I get the more prevalent these losses become.
    Doris Day was a household name at one time. Who can forget Peggy. I watched many an episodes of the Mod Squad when I was a kid.
    May these two Beautiful and Talented ladies Rest In Peace.

    Doris was 46 when she made her last movie. Then just walked away from the movies. What will be will be.

    Mod Squad was one of my favorite shows growing up along with Love American Style and a few others. Peggy Lipton was one of a very few women in Hollywood that aged very well and as far as I can tell never got a big head either. Her and Karen Valentine were my two "it" ladies growing up, along with Sally Fields who at the time was the Flying Nun.

    Doris Day. It makes me smile that there are those Hollywood types that are good people and get to live to 97 yrs old.


    Never was a Mod Squad fan but of course I knew who Peggy was

    RIP both of you

    I heard about the wonderful Doris Day's passing today but only now heard about the untimely passing of Ms. Lipton as well. I was only a small child when Mod Squad was on tv so Peggy's passing is really a sad reminder of how quick our lives go by and how old we all are getting. May both ladies rest in peace under the Shadow of the Wings of the Almighty.

    Doris Day was pretty much out of the movie biz by the time I was old enough to take notice, but I saw reruns of her movies in my teen years and always liked them. For whatever the reason, I never paid much attention to Paggy Lipton, but Karen Valentine gave me juvenile arrhythmia at the time. The funny thing is, looking at old pictures of her today, I seen an attractive young woman, but it’s no big deal.

    The sad reality is the older we all get, the more of these types of threads we will read.
    One day even Keith will be part of these threads.:(
    I loved the Mod Squad as a kid.
    RIP ladies.

    For me, aging has come down to three things.

    • Getting in and out of my sports car makes my hip hurt.
    • Eye problems. (I’m currently 20/20, but have had a number of surgeries with at least two more ahead.)
    • Losing people from my life.

    That last item gets durned old, in a hurry. I cried when Chet Atkins passed away. I’ve lost several friends in the last few years and every time that happens, it’s like a sucker punch to the psyche. Then one day, you realize that the gaps left by the loss of these people don’t automatically get filled in. Whether it’s not being able to catch a Chet Atkins concert, or not being able to call an old friend to meet for coffee, each loss is real and palpable.

    As some of us get up in age it becomes an almost daily ritual saying goodbye to our friends, family and loved ones. I had a few early introductions to this with a lot of friends and family and all I can say is at some point you start to bypass a few of the stages of loss or at least get through them quicker. It's also different with each person you had a relationship with and how you defined that realtionship with them. I have one that I wake up to everyday and it'll likely never go away but it also keeps me grounded.
    Life is limited and we all have limited timers, enjoying and appreciating the time we do have is essential. No one here gets out live -JM
