I hope that you check out Ann's link below (and check posts within that link before and after that), since many of us had expressed our sorrow at Irvin's loss when we were notified of his passing here. I never had the opportunity to meet or talk to him, but he seemed like a treasure just based on his postings and the recollections of others' meetings and correspondence with him, a very funny, upbeat, witty and lovely guy. I hope he is now following up with a heavenly hitbycabcalloway (I think he'd like that!) and surrounded by cute dancing chorus boy angels (I know he'd like that!). He loved mentioning that he was originally from Winnipeg when I brought up one of my faves, Deanna Durbin, who was also born there. My sincere condolences to our cabbie's family and friends.
