I am humbled by the enduring connections that have been forged by A Minor Consideration. The love we formers have for each other has never been more apparent than after Don Grady's untimely death. News reached me via Tommy Cole who assured me he had spoken with Don's mother, Mary. Lauren Chapin called from Florida. Frank Bank called right after Lauren. Stan Livingston and Tim Considine checked in. Rana and I will be with Billy Gray, Jon Provost and Tony Dow tomorrow night at Tony & Lauren's home. We need each other...all of us together through thick or thin. Permit me to share what Tim Considine wrote for the Disney website:
"There's a favorite photo of mine from the Disney days. In it, all the Mice - what I called the Mousketeers - and Dave Stollery and I from Spin & Marty and Tommy Kirk from The Hardy Boys are gathered around Walt Disney. As it happened, I had my hands on the shoulders of one of the younger Mice in front of me. It was Don Grady. Of course, years later, Don ended up playing one of my brothers on My Three Sons. He was extraordinarily talented, as an actor and musician, but he was also a funny, wonderful guy, who never got his head turned by success. All four of the Three Sons have remained brothers since then and Don will be missed terribly by all of us. I love you, Bro, RIP".
