++ The Hope

Actually I am referring to Bob Hope. An icon in acting and comedy. He also made impression on the military by visiting them when they were afield. I ran across this article about him and wanted to share some of his sharp wit. Do you recall him? I sure do, from a young kid through being adult.

On his death bed, they asked him where he wanted to be buried and he said,"Surprise me."

If you remember Bob Hope? You'll enjoy this.





I had forgotten that he lived to be 100, and also didn't realize it has been over 10 years since he died. Always enjoyed him, his movies, and his show. He touched a lot of lives during his life. Thought you might enjoy a bit of memory touching, so sent it along to you. .Enjoy

BOB HOPE IN HEAVEN
PS: For those of you too young to remember Bob Hope, ask your Grandparents !



I HOPE THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART. This is a tribute to a man who DID make a difference.

So many do not recall his acting career. He added humor during a time of need
