“To absent friends…”

“To absent friends…”

Aug 2012

Yes that is a quote from the “Rocky horror picture show” but that film is not the reason for my post today.

Here in the Seattle area we have lost 2 local celebrities.

J.P. Patches and Kathi Goertzen.

Death is part of our human life. Each of these hard working persons are greatly missed by their perspective families and their many fans. Including myself.

My mother as a child was on a J.P. Patches show during the 1950s. As for myself I remember JP as the comedic clown during his broadcasts in the late 1970s until his shows cancelation in 1981.

Kathi was one of many familiar faces on the various local news stations. I remember the news that she had one of two daughters on a news broadcast on KOMO tv many years ago.

Kathi was beautiful, talented and always filled with life!

Each of their deaths is a constant reminder of my own mortality and the understanding that like all people we are destined to die.

Philippians 1:21

Hebrews 9:27

Revelation 21:1-4

Chris, Kathi I as one of your many fans love you, miss you and look forward to talking with you in the New Heaven and New Earth.
