He seemed like a truly good person. All the great people seem to be passing away. So much class in
that generation, that is no longer seen in current performers. A loss , indeed.

Loved him - the big brother I never had. RIP Don Grady. I wonder whatever happened to his crazy real-life sister who was in Eight is Enough.

Better hurry. Get your creeps over there to horang his family. Maybe you can get cameras inside the casket.

Where is all the unfounded speculation about cause of death.

68 is too young for a good man to die. It's sad that we've seen less of him over the years and far too much of talentless (and worthless) others.

It puts you in mind of the days when performers had real talent and genuinely entertained the audience,as compared to the mindless trash & sludge produced by the Kardashian family and the other so called reality shows. A continuous assault to the minds of the American people.
