The laughter and joy This man did imbue us Is vast beyond measure, Our Dear Jerry Lewis ... Oh, hearken the birds Their new song of sorrow For now we know why Sol goes dark tomorrow.

Thank you, Russel, that's very kind of you, My Friend ... he brought a lot of joy and healing to this world. He was far from perfect, but he worked hard to make this world a better place. Very sad to lose him. Blessings to you!

Some of my favorite movies of his were, "Cinderfella", "The Disorderly Orderly" and the "Nutty Professor;" also loved to watch him on the MDA telethons…he will be missed! Very nice tribute Greg!~Che :)

gosh, I don't listen to the news much. Did he just die very recently? He stayed around by doing so much good with his telethons. They don't make them like his kind any more. Great tribute!

I may be 38 years old but he was still one of my favorite actor comedians. I loved him and Dean Martin in movies together too. He will be missed. Great tribute, Greg!
