Treasure Island

Randy Johnson


French


(Dedicated to Victor French who died of cancer on June 15,1989)

You starred on Highway to heaven, Carter country and even on Little house on the prairie.
It's sad to know that you are dead and buried.
One moment everything seemed to be fine.
But then we lost you in June of 1989.

Sometimes you had a beard and other times you only had a mustache.
You made a great contribution to TV in the past.
You had a career that shined bright.
But you died at fifty-four and that wasn't right.

When you guest starred on Gunsmoke, you played the bad guy.
People cared about you and hated to see you die.
When you played as the heavy, you never flinched.
Rest in peace, Victor French.

    ho ho ho, Randy, you struck a nerve! that's supposed to be a GOOD thing. whether your audience laughs, cries, or throws beer bottles at you, at least they're reacting. you shouldn't let one person's opinion cause you to second guess your ability.

    What's really funny is some of us are really wondering what the heck we missed! ! (Report) Reply
