Thank you for letting us know that Kathleen Crowley is still with us.  I loved her smokey voice and would have given anything to sound like her.  I saw her in a Lone Ranger episode as a brunette; she looked a lot different from her usual blonde appearance but the voice gave her away.

Inga Swenson is 84  actress, singer


I've been under the impression that she died several years ago.  I'm quite glad that she hasn't as I loved her as "Gretchen Krauss" on Benson.  Contrary to that character's put-downs about her looks she was quite attractive.  She also played "Hoss's" mother on two episodes of Bonanza, she was the only one of Ben's three wives who got more than one show about her.

Julius LaRosa  (1930-2016)  singer-songwriter, television host, actor


He died last year?  I did not know this.  I also remember his on-air firing by Arthur Godfrey when I was a kid.  Obviously he didn't let this stop him and had a career longer that Godfrey's.  He did soaps for a while and was nominated for an Emmy while on Another World.  As I recall, his recordings were good as well.
