David Birney - Bridget Loves Bernie

Has died at 83 from Alzheimers.  I remember Bridget Loves Bernie with Meredith Baxter.  A cute show from 1972, but it was cancelled after one year due to protests about Jewish marrying Catholic. In real life, they got married after the show ended.  He was also in St. Elsewhere.  R.I.P.

I loved him in Love is a Many Splendored thing with Donna Mills. He played Mark and she was Laura. This news kind of brings it all back and breaks my heart.

I also remember him from the brief series "Serpico".  He was such a talented man.  RIP.

Sympathies to his family and friends.
