    Stephen Furst.
    May 1955 to June 2017.
    Died from diabetes complications.
    Actor in movie Animal House, as Flounder.
    TV series St Elsewhere, as Dr Elliot Axelrod.

    And my personal favorite, his portrayal as sidekick Vir Cotto, on Babylon 5.


    RIP.

    Nevertheless, she still deserves our respect because she put herself out on the front-line to raise public awareness on mental illness and was very successful in raising money on a continuous basis for research in this area. She will not be forgotten and will forever remain a princess in the eyes of many more to come for her efforts to make meaningful and significant changes in the mental health field.

    The news didn't denigrate Carrie Fisher's memory for me.
    We all struggle with inner demons.
    IMHO, her death was more of a cautionary tale.
    Trans-oceanic flights (UK to USA) are LONG.
    Don't do anything that may cause need for medical attention when boarding such flights (excessive self-medication), because it might be a LONG delay (hours) for that ambulance ride to the Emergency Room for help.
    Rapid transport can make all the difference, hence the red lights and sirens on emergency vehicles.
    Unfortunate series of events. In an at home incident, she probably would have survived.
