A daily communicant

This weekend I snuggled up with my baby girl and watched TVLand's "That Girl" marathon. You can see full episodes from that series at: TV Land Online : Home of the New Video Player.

I remember loving that show when I was a little girl. As I was watching I wondered what ever happened to Ann Marie's boyfriend on the series, Don Holinger, played by Ted Bessell, so I decided to do a Google search.

Sadly, Mr. Bessell passed on in 1996 at the age of 61 from an aortic aneurysm. I searched further on and found Mr. Bessell's final resting place and a picture of his grave marker.

The epitaph on his marker is very moving. I did not even know that he was Catholic. That he was a daily communicant and worked in the entertainment industry is inspiring. May he rest in peace.
