Shouldn't we remember ALL the non-famous people who have had an impact on people's lives who are not recognized like the immortilized stars who have left us? Sorry but this sort of sickens me! There are great people who leave this world everyday and do they get the recognition that they deserve? NO! Sorry Nick, I think that is in poor taste!

clgruener-- Funeral homes help recognize "non-famous" people every day. Its called a funeral. Everyone can have one. Everyone should have one. All the funeral home is doing here is giving you an opportunity to express your feelings without flying to California.

This is a nice thing to do Nick. I am glad you gave us the chance to recognize these people who had impacts on us.

I am also glad that we can pay tribute to the "non famous" loved ones as well.. It is so nice to express our feelings!

Go figure.....a local business attempts to do something positive, and certain "posters" continue doing what they do best: leave narrow-minded, negative comments! Kudos to the French Funeral Home for setting a great example!!!!

My first thought was WOW ...thank you French's Funeral Home for being so big minded and caring. The big metropolis cities do this all the time.

How nice!!!

Then the second thought was ..after reading some of the responses...Drats...still small minded community.

French's said "those who left a mark on the entertainment business and in our hearts"...no one there said anything about Heroes!!??

Prayers to the families of all three entertainers.

Thank you to French's Funeral Home for being so open minded. Your annual tribute (just a few weeks ago) of those who passed in our community every year in the paper,along with other funeral homes, is also admirable.
