    33. Walter Mondale

    Wow, the 8th one on my list! Rest in Peace Walter! Just missed again! https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/walter-mondale-dead/2021/04/19/c14c277e-a1d6-11e6-8832-23a007c77bb4_story.html?utm_campaign=wp_main&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR2ZWBvQ-KA4jPJ8fubLQtHKPUEgXWTPzlugVWuOzK9ais82AnOcBhs7hPM

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    By this time, those fingers are probably frozen in place

    I agree with you, he WAS a great guy who made the Queen laugh! She will soldier on, and she does have a couple of new Corgis to help!

    Heard about it just as I was leaving the house- I always hear these things at the worst times! Sorry to hear about his death, he was a very unique guy, who dealt with the difficulties of his life by saying whatever he wanted, in the funniest wand wittiest way possible, not necessarily in the most tactful or diplomatic way. The Queen must be devastated, I hope she'll survive this, the greatest loss of her life- looks like it was announced at about 7:30 am over here, 12:30 over there- did they tell you all about it at noon??

    OH, you're right! I wish they wouldn't do things like that! I wonder how he looks now, probably not any better!

    But you are a guy, and as such would not have read her books as a kid- I think they were mostly read by girls.

    Another one off my list, she had a good long life- I loved reading her books when I was a kid- yes, she should have been on the list, but maybe she's not so famous over there in the UK-

    Opera

    A great musician, but a total creep- I am sure they were stoking the fires for him!

    The interview was done before Prince Philip went to the hospital, so they had no idea

    Here's a good article about Tony Bennett's Alzheimer's Disease: https://www.aarp.org/entertainment/celebrities/info-2021/tony-bennett-alzheimers.html?cmp=SNO-ICM-FB-CEL-ENT&socialid=4453706705

    The Vicar Of Dibley

    Looks like Trevor Peacock bucked the system then, one extra year- sorry to see him go he was hilariously funny

    That would be my guess- the last ones must have been wearing out, so they replaced them- or maybe completely new ones. He's probably out of the woods for the moment- lucky guy!

    An infection that doesn't clear up after two weeks of treatment, plus now heart issues- it sure doesn't look very good- if he does make 100, he won't last much longer- but maybe they will put in another stint and he'll be okay for awhile- the non- cured infection is another matter- BBC new app, huh? I wonder if that works in the US

    4. Bob Dole

    Yup, visited by Biden- the significant thing is the picture in this article, he really looks awful- they say he is starting treatment on Monday- and the side effects of Chemo are very difficult, even for a younger and stronger person- I think he is not long for this world- maybe the next death on the list, (although I voted for Philip)- He looks like Death Warmed Over! https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/joe-biden/biden-visits-bob-dole-following-lung-cancer-announcement-n1258459?cid=sm_npd_ms_fb_ma&fbclid=IwAR2EnRtAOb-JTpCHDLCt55bJPqS9p6Mee7KajJaF1gbO9EpYL3nxlygCWDA
