Unhappy James Arness dead at 88

James Arness, who played one of my favorite tv characters, Marshal Matt Dillon, on Gunsmoke, died today at the age of 88. I'm truly saddened by his passing. I grew up on Gunsmoke -- Monday nights @ 8 pm, with Marshal Dillon, Festus, Miss Kitty, and Doc. I feel like a part of my childhood just passed into oblivion.

For the complete story, check the link:


Rest in Peace

Marshal Dillon

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore .

Children are a message that we send
to a time that we will never see.

He will be missed. But had a good character and stayed with it.
