R.I.P. Johnny Carson (b. 1925 / d. 2005)

Wow, Johnny Carson is dead. I. Am. So. Sad.

Johnny is part of a lot of special memories for me. As a kid, watching him host the Academy Awards. As a young adult, just married, watching him sign off for the last time. Bette Midler singing "One More For The Road", which left everyone in North America crying.

Oh Johnny, we'll miss you. Thanks for all the great memories.

"And so it has come to this. I am one of the lucky people in the world. I found something that I always wanted to do and I have enjoyed every single minute of it," Carson said to close his final show. "I bid you a very heartfelt goodnight."
