I've been meaning to post about this all day... yesterday, actor Ron Silver passed away at age 62 in New York.
Hubby and I had the good fortune to meet Ron at the 2008 Republican National Convention. We both thought he was a very nice man-- and we also both remain huge fans of his work on the West Wing. He'll be missed, but his work will not be forgotten.
See also Roger Simon's farewell post-- well worth a read, not least because of the unique friendship these two shared.
Rest in peace, Ron. [intro]
