    Actor Leslie Nielsen has passed.

    I stood in line in back of him at a Costco a year or so ago and we had a wonderful conversation. He was so very personable.
    Told me he gets called Shirley a lot! We laughed.

    I loved both Airplane and the Naked Gun series. I'm a slapstick kind of guy I suppose..

    'Airplane!' star Leslie Nielsen dies at 84

    Sad. He was a great actor and had an amazing ability to do comedy and serious drama.

    Oh no! He was one of my husband's favorite actors. I bet my husband can quote "Airplane" from start to finish.

    We are lucky that he shared his talent with the world.
