Thanks for memories

DANVILLE — Editor:

What a life!

I recently read the Jan. 27 “What a Life!” article by Mary Wicoff. It was honoring the life of Dick Van Dyke.

It was so fitting that an article about this comedic legend had the following statement: “Van Dyke actually was born in West Plains, Mo., on Dec. 13, 1925; his parents just happened to be there at the time.”

We should hope so … at least the mother should have been there.

Thanks for all of the memories, Dick.
