The late James Arness
Something happened that certainly isn't great.
James Arness died at the age of eighty-eight.
He starred in Gunsmoke for twenty years.
His passing will bring about many tears.
He favored my late Grandpa a little in the face.
Now Arness is dead and it's truly a disgrace.
When it came to his acting, he made millions of fans yearn.
He was one of the greatest actors who starred in westerns.
His death is making all of his fans fall apart.
He is dead but he'll always live in people's hearts.

Dedicated to James Arness who died June 3, 2011.

   Peter and Jim will surely be missed.

No matter how many times "The Thing" is remade

Arness will always be number one in this classic science fiction thriller.

All the best,

Randy:  you always write such beautiful tributes to honour a persons passing.  Style and grace abound.

A nice tribute to an actor who played one of the most enduring characters in television history, we may never again see one like him. Nice work here Randy.   Henry
