I love me some Rockford Files... and just about anything else that starred James Garner.
[Links included for the uninitiated.]
I was already full of memories and some tears when I heard on the radio as I drove home that James Garner had passed away. I was imagining my sister and brother welcoming Mr. Garner to the other side. She is the biggest Garner fan I know ... her favorites were not mine, but there was plenty to agree on anyway.
May he rest in peace... and thanks for the many memorable characters - especially the terminally flawed yet redeemed ones like Jimmy Rockford.
As I have written here before, I spend a summer watching Rockford on hulu as I did some other grief filled work. He's a great companion if you need someone to commiserate... thank you, Jimmy and Mr. Garner.
Wishing his wife and daughters peace as they learn to live in a world without him. May their memories bring them solace -- and their eyes brighten at the reruns as I know mine will.
