In memoriam…

I was preparing a normal post today, but news I have gotten wind of shocked me tonight. Rod’s passing is a blow to the game show world, one that it will take time to recover from. My thoughts are with his loved ones and friends tonight for this great loss, and us as fans will always remember him for his warmth and enthusiasm he brought to every venue and every show that he worked on. I remember, when I was a child of 5, when Johnny Olson passed away, I didn’t understand death too much at that time, and had to ask mom what happened. And she told me, “he went to a better place”. That’s how we all can remember him now, he’s in a better place, one without pain, one without misery, and one surely comprised of joy. When we all join that game show up there someday, we’ll get to be in his audience again. I look forward to that day. Until them, I’ll say, we’ll miss you Rod.
