I wrote a book report about Sherwood in the 10th grade. Some of my best work. A mai tai will be drank in his honor.

I've got The Brady Bunch in my DVD player right now - this is a sad day but is sounds like he had a full life. When I go out, I want to go out having raised a happy family and after having a long and fulfilling career, like him.

94?? I guess he had to go sometime.

Like all of you that are about my age I grew up watching the Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island.

Bummer, but yeah, 94. Had a full life and gave a generation or more a whole bunch of great memories!

Thank You, Mr. Schwartz!

I'm still put out that most obits seem to be leaving out his best work, "It's About Time." Dang, I LOVE that show.

I still remember the day our parents put their foot down and wouldn't let us watch "Brady Bunch." It was on every evening at 7:30 and like crack for me. Yes, we'd seen them all 200 times, but it was still traumatic. That was over 30 years ago and I'm still upset! :lol:
