Beverly Cleary also died on March 25. Ironic that this should be on page 105 as she would have been 105 shortly.*
*We just started page 106 here though.
Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins has died at age 90. Mr. Collins was part of the three-member crew on Apollo 11, the first lunar landing mission in 1969 that Ray Bradbury so strongly celebrated when it occurred. However, unlike Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, Mr. Collins did not walk on the moon. Rather, he piloted the command module as it circled above. Rest in peace, Mr. Collins.
Actor and director Norman Lloyd has died at the age of 106. Mr. Lloyd is perhaps best known for his role in Alfred Hitchcock's SABATEUR, in which he played a villainous spy who, at the end of the film, dangled from the top of the Statue of Liberty. However, Ray Bradbury fans will remember him best for directing the ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR presentation of Ray's short story "The Jar", which remains my favorite episode of that show. He also directed "The Jail", which was scripted by Ray Bradbury and produced by Mr. Hitchcock for the series ALCOA PREMIERE.

A Truly Amazing Life! "106!" From the link Richard presented: "In 2014, in recognition of his 82 years in show business, and reaching the age of 100, the Los Angeles City Council proclaimed that his birthday of Nov. 8, would be honored as “Norman Lloyd Day.”
I am sure Mr. Lloyd, Mr. Bradbury, and Green Town's Colonel Freeleigh will soon meet up to enjoy a lemonade and talk over old times together. Peace!
