Goodbye Phyllis Diller

I remember watching Diller on Bob Hope specials, on Hollywood Squares and other game shows and I was really happy she found a whole new generation of fans on Family Guy.

I didn’t know she was sick. She wasn’t when I wrote her two years ago. Not only did she sign the picture I sent, but she also included this beautiful glossy and autographed it too. I kept meaning to send her that book of hers I found in Amish country last year. It rode around in an envelope in my car all year but I never got around to posting it.

I’m going to miss Phyllis Diller. There’s a corner of the wall in my library where her picture is hung next to autographs from Dick Clark and Elizabeth Taylor. That corner is beginning to make me sad.
