Child Stars

We were saddened to hear of Sawyer Sweeten's suicide. Nineteen. A son.
A brother. A twin. A twin.

The news would have troubled us, regardless, but its impact was multiplied by the fact that we just recently began watching "Everybody Loves Raymond" reruns.

Not to bring up the long, hard winter yet again, except to say it factored in to our TV viewing time. A respite of sorts. And I found myself avoiding the ever-depressing evening news, choosing instead to watch some sitcoms before dinner, "Raymond" being one of them. We never watched while in production, so there was a lot of catching up to do.

We are saddened by the loss of Mr. Sweeten… we were just getting to "know" you. RIP
