Lupe Ontiveros, Rosalita from The Goonies, passed away on July 26. I am currently not able to converse in Spanish, but she taught me my first words in the language of Cervantes. Much appreciated.

Geoffrey Hughes, Onslow from Keeping Up Appearances, kicked the bucket on July 27. Unfortunately typecast by just about everyone, he had a rich history on stage with far more complex characters. Thanks for all the laughs, though. May your catchphrases echo in eternity.
