    All major outlets reporting that one day after her daughter's death, Debbie Reynolds passed away approximately 9pm EST (6pm Los Angeles) from symptoms related to stroke.

    Reynolds was at her daughter's Los Angeles home with son Todd Fisher discussing funeral arrangements for Carrie Fisher when 911 was called to the residence.

    Such a stunning piece of news; 2016 has certainly claimed a number of notable people.

    The names are certainly different. To be expected I suppose. But, the numbers do not seem much different than the past few years. Seems as though actors, actresses, singers, drummers, etc. have about the same mortality rate as other careers.

    That said, Debbie Reynolds was a special one for sure. Multi-talented, vivacious, badly treated, much loved, she was a "oner."

    The older I get the faster the notables from my youth die.

    A man without a shillelagh is a man without an expedient.

    A double post of stuff not really worth repeating.

    William Holden was the first great movie star who passed away on my watch. I saw "The Counterfeit Traitor" at the El Dorado Springs, MO Drive-In circa 1962 and then Ms. Reynolds in "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" at a Kansas City walk-in theater in 1964.

    If this pattern continues, Dame Julie Andrews - of "Sound of Music" fame - is next. While she hasn't sung professionally in years, that beautiful coloratura soprano will make the world a far less interesting place to reside when she passes away. (Kansas City walk-in 1965.)

    "Debbie Reynolds was a special one for sure. Multi-talented, vivacious, badly treated, much loved, she was a "oner."

    What a superb epitaph, Warren.

    What a frigging tragedy

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes
