Goodbye, Captain Sacto
Harry Martin died on Sunday. I realize that if you didn't grow up in the same general area we did, you may not have heard of him. But we literally grew up watching him on TV, and we just loved him. He was witty and charming and handsome - he actually reminded me of our Daddy. Although I did not know him personally, of course, I truly believe that I know he was a genuinely nice man, and he was a delight to watch on KCRA Channel 3 from Sacramento. We miss you already, Mr. Martin. I know Captain Sacto is winging his way up to heaven.
(Please read my sister's comment - I know when she reads this she will have something to add. We really did love him- I have tears in my eyes as I write this. When I watched Channel 3's tribute to him, it made me cry.)
