Garry Marshall, the talented director and creator of pretty much all my favorite shows, passed away yesterday at the age of 81. He left behind a legacy of films and TV shows that have thrilled and delighted people of all ages for decades.
Not only did he create Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, and Mork & Mindy, but he made Pretty Woman, as well. I had the honor and privilege of meeting Garry a couple of times over the years. The first time was at the Hollywood Show with the cast of Laverne & Shirley. The second time was at the opening of Book of Mormon at the Pantages theater.
He was a lovely man with a great eye for talent. He will be missed. R.I.P. Garry Marshall. Thank you for the countless hours of entertainment.
