…”it’s a different world than where ya come from, here’s are chance to make…” OMG! I loved the theme song version sung by Aretha Franklin…classic!
I am saddened to learn that one of the cast member’s from one of my favorite TV shows in the 80’s/90’s has died. Actor Lou Meyers who is known for playing the character of Vernon Gaines on the hit tv show “A Different World” passed away last night in West Virginia.
The President of Lou’s non-profit confirms Lou passed away last night in West Virginia at the Charleston Medical Center following a heart-related emergency.
Lou was hospitalized in December for pneumonia but released after New Year’s. He collapsed at home a few weeks later and was hospitalized again. Lou’s heart stopped yesterday. Doctors were able to revive him, but he fell into a coma and passed just hours later. He was 77.
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the official cause of death. We’re told Lou — who served in the Army — will receive a military burial in West Virginia. He is survived by his son and his 95-year-old mother.- TMZ
Another one of our legends has gone on to Glory……
