But better than me writing about him, I decided to link to a quite wonderful piece that my friend who gets mentioned here on occasion Shelly Goldstein wrote. Her reminiscence is eloquent, touching, fun, and personal, though I kept waiting for her to talk about how he went to Northwestern – I knew it would be coming – because the Lady Shellington not only went there, as well, but it was where she met Garry Marshall, and the first steps to him becoming her mentor began. And when she did finally bring it up, the piece -- as good as it had been up to that point -- soared.
After having said all that, I hope you can read it. It's on Facebook, written as a post there. And I'm not sure if one can read a Facebook post if not a member. Though I do remember reading occasional Facebook posts before I joined, so...we'll you'll just have to find it.
You can find it (hopefully) here.
