Very sad, and even sadder that he outlived two of his young co-stars and had to help a third through drug addiction. I used to love Diff'rent Strokes as a kid. RIP.

I was watching a marathon of "Diff'rent Strokes" when it was added to Antenna TV's lineup and thinking, "Wow...Mr. Drummond is still alive...". Then, my mama told me this news tonight. May he RIP.

I love Antenna TV channel. Love to watch Alfred Hitchcock...and I find myself EVERY ONCE in a while watching the Jack Benny Show (caught an epi with Nat King Cole---boy was he a smooth/debonair brother), and the The George and Gracie show....:biggrin:
