August 5th is a Sad Day

This my favorite photo of my folks - it was taken in front of the fireplace in my home many years ago.

Both Vi and Earl Gillians died on August 5th - Vi in 2005 and Earl in 2006. I miss them both every day and always will.

What I didn't realize until just recently was that August 5th was also the day that Marilyn Monroe died, and today is the 50th anniversary of her death. We were all so shocked when we heard of her passing - such a waste of beauty and talent.

Here are a couple of stories which reminisce about Marilyn and her death:

I miss them too......it hardly seems possible that it's been 7 years and 6 years today since they died. We were lucky to have them for as long as we did.
