>Our heart’s are broken today. Our dear friend Ron Janoff has passed away. After a gallant fight over the past year his body and mind couldn’t fight any longer. Kent has known Ron for over 45 years and I for almost 40. Kent first met Ron when he was working at Old Tucson in public relations. We were filming The High Chaparral series at the time. During the years, we have had more fun together than anyone can imagine. There were cruises, train trips, parties and of course those annual gin rummy games. The stories and experiences we shared were filled with laughter, and yes, there were some tears.

There will be a celebration of his life at his favorite Restaurant in Tucson next week. It is exactly what he would have wanted, a get together so all can spend time telling stories and having some laughs and a toast or two or three or more to Ron’s life.

He was truly a special man and he was loved and enjoyed by everyone who knew him. Kent and I loved him as family and we will miss him very much.

Michael Landon wrote a special “Little House on the Prairie” script.. Within it is a poem that was read at Mike’s service by his daughter Leslie. It seems appropriate to share it, for we should all remember Ron with smiles and laughter.

Remember Me

Remember me with smiles and laughter,
For that’s the way I’ll remember you all.
If you can only remember me with tears,
Then don’t remember me at all.
~ Michael Landon
