So long, farewell

Charmian Carr has died.

Listen to a wonderful tribute from NPR.

Good night, Liesl.


I suppose that the first death from amongst the on-screen Von Trapp family had to happen . . . but I still hate it.

Perhaps we should marvel that more than 50 years has passed,and we’ve not yet lost one of the seven children, nor the Captain, nor Maria.
