    Well, Damn.

    That's two down.

    Life is so short and quick. I hate change but it comes rapid-fire.

    Rest in peace, old boy. For your sake I hope they don't serve Spam up there.

    He may not have been the Messiah, but he was definitely a very naughty boy

    From the first time I saw those irreverent gentlemen, I was a fan.

    Not unexpected, but still a hard loss.

    Fair travels Brother.

    Bummer! So sorry to hear.

    I've been a MP fan since the 70's. In the part of the country where I grew up most people were more into "Hee Haw" than Brit humor and didn't really get them, but I did. Still love watching "The Flying Circus" along with their movies.."The Holy Grail" in particular.

    RIP Terry.
