    So looking forward to seeing you, Tracy and the rest of the sheiks and shebas! Hopefully the weather won’t be too toasty. No matter how hot it gets in the Cathedral Mausoleum, just be grateful Rudy isn’t buried in Ontario. (Although…now that I think of it…:D ) xo

    Today, Hollywood lost a legend. On November 13, 2013, Marvin Paige passed away. He was a wonderful, generous, loyal and genuine man to his friends. He will be greatly missed.
