Deanna Durbin: 1921-2013

Wow! I was coming down this morning to post a normal "daily" blog entry (frar from daily these days, but --- oh well), but Elizabeth and I woke up to an e-mail from a friend telling us that the news has just been released that Deanna Durbin died a few days ago. She was 91 years old. Amazing. Somehow, you always think of her at about 15 years, singing away!

She's Elizabeth's favorite performer, and we've watched her movies, sung her songs and all for years and years. We even wrote to her over ten years ago and received autographed pictures. Cool! This doesn't leave many of "our generation" surviving, but the great thing about film and recordings is that the beautiful music lives on. People will be able to enjoy Deanna for generations more. It will take some getting used to --- to really think of her as gone. More later.
