    Bob Schiller, the last of the I Love Lucy writers, has passed away at age 98. At this time, except for Keith Thibodeaux who played Little Ricky, I cannot think of anyone else from the series - cast or crew - still with us. A few guest stars like Barbara Eden but not anyone else I can think of.

    I tell my son all the time how his generation (1983-) is picking up the mantle from us, in all fields. He says he already has such conversations with his peers all the time.

    Sad news and embarrassed to admit I didn't know he was still alive. One of the last great writers from Old Time Radio also.

    He was also prominent in the All In The Family world also. What a range of talent he had. Prayers to his family.

    Bob was an incredible guy. No surprise that he was fun to be around, and always had great stories to tell. My family and I will miss him.

    I don't how how this is sad news. He lived until 98 years old. Let's celebrate the very long and great life he had and all that he accomplished. You can't ask for longer, better life than that. He did it all in his 98 years.
