Never to be Forgotten:
Ruby Dee 1922-2014

Ruby Dee, actor and activist, has died at the age of 91. Best remembered for the work she did with her late husband Ossie Davis, both as actors and as people working for justice, she is mentioned here because of one role out of her 111 credits on imdb.com, playing Mother Abagail in the TV mini-series of Stephen King's The Stand, which also featured Ossie Davis as Judge Richard Farris.

I readily admit that this is a silly little blog with many mood swings, but I really am glad there was that single role in her remarkable career that gives me the honor of typing these few sentences through my tears.

Best wishes to the family and friends of Ruby Dee, from a fan. She is never to be forgotten.
