Elaine Dickinson: A hospital? What is it?
Rumack: It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

I HAD THE PLEASURE OF KNOWING "LESLIE NIELSEN".
WE WORKED TOGETHER ON "NAKED GUN 33 AND 1/3".

I WAS SADDENED TO HEAR OF HIS PASSING.
THE MAN WAS A COMEDIC GENIUS.
HE KNEW HOW TO KEEP US ALL LAUGHING.
I HAVE WONDERFUL MEMORIES OF HIM AND HIS WIFE AT "PIA ZADORA"S HOUSE.

MY HEART GOES OUT TO HIS LOVELY WIFE BARBAREE AND FAMILY.
