R.I.P. Tom Bosley

You probably remember Tom Bosley as the all-American father on "Happy Days," teaching Ritchie and the Fonz about life.  If you are part of the older set, you probably are used to seeing him as the Sheriff on "Murder, She Wrote," opposite Angela Landsbury.  But the place from which I first remember Tom Bosley was from the short-lived series "The Father Dowling Mysteries" where he starred as a priest who solved crimes with the help of a hot nun.  I remember they drove around in a giant Ford LTD wagon with wood panelling and the headlights on the front that had the covers over them that opened.  He also starred on Broadway prior to his television career as Mayor Fiorello La Guardia.  No matter how you knew him, he is now gone, his warm voice and face no longer giving us fatherly advice as we go along.  He will be missed, at least around here.  Rest in peace.
