  1. I used to watch The Prince of Bel Air. I am sorry to read about James Averys death (sorry — my quotation marks don’t work on my keyboard, as you can see). I missed most of the national news tonight, so I did not learn of his death (and Juanita Moores) until I got on here just now. Both of them were great actors and I am sorry to learn of their deaths. I liked Fresh Prince and The Imitation of Life. It seems like at the end of one year and at the very beginning of the next year, a lot of famous people pass away. May they rest in peace.

  2. I am so sad to hear about James Avery’s death. I loved him watching the Fresh Prince of Bel Air when I was growing up. He will truly be missed. RIP James Avery
