Another Loss

Last week I wrote a post about Emyl Jenkins, a noted author who resided here in Richmond, who passed away at age 68 from what turned out to be ovarian cancer. To have lost her, Dixie Carter (endometrial cancer) and now Lynn Redgrave (age 67...from breast cancer) makes me so very sad.

I wanted to mention her passing, and in choosing a photo, I thought she looked lovely in this pink jacket, which brightens her already beautiful face....Those of you around my age will remember her as Weight Watchers first celebrity spokesperson, where she was a shining example to us all...

Although Tuesday is my traditional "Think Pink" post....Let's "Think Pink" today and continue the fight against breast (and all ) cancer!!!

  1. Oh gosh so sad. Thanks for posting this, I'm not very good at staying up on the news.

  2. I just found your blog via Lily Lemontree. So sorry to hear about Emyl Jenkins. I had the opportunity to meet her when she was a guest speaker at a benefit antiques show that I was involved with. I actually escorted her to a couple of television interviews, and she was delightful. She signed several books for me, and gave me some encouraging advice as well. She was a wonderful speaker, as well.

  3. So sad. I was shocked when I read about Lynn Redgrave. I didn't realize that she had fought breast cancer for so long. I remember her in "Georgy Girl" and of course, the Weight Watcher's commercials.

  4. I work a 2nd job on Saturday at Paula Deen's restaurant in Savannah GA. It was about 2 and 1/2 years ago Lynn, Vanessa and Corin came into the restaurant. Vanessa was receiving an award from a local college "Savannah College of Arts and Design" I was their host. I was so excited to meet all of them. Vanessa was most friendly even gave me a hug. Corin was quite a gentleman and Lynn was the professional. She was very nice, but very professional. I am honored to say I met and spoke with all of them. It is so sad, three deaths so close together... Natashsa, Corbin and now Lynn.

  5. Such a beautiful photo of Lynn Redgrave. I too was so sad to hear of her passing. I am walking the Susan B. Komen 60 miles, 3day for the Cure in October. My way of helping fight breast cancer!!
