    R.I.P. Alex Trebek

    Just saw that Alex Trebek died. Boy, I can't even tell you how many thousands of episodes of Jeopardy I've watched over the years. He was a constant in my life and I am truly going to miss him.

    I watched him for years but then I felt the show took a turn too much in the direction of pop culture and brand names.

    He will be missed. Condolences and prayers to family and friends.

    A classy emcee of a fun game show.

    Part of our evening routine for most of our married life. We loved him (unless he commented to much and the contestants wouldn't clear the board - then not so much)!

    DH was the Wheel of Fortune fan, I was Jeopardy. I was really hoping he was going to beat this. He will be missed.

    Too soon, and how glorious to do what you love for that many years, and bring so much pleasure to others.

    He seemed like a really likeable, gracious person. He always displayed class on camera.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!
