Born to talk and live
Like the world that knew him I was saddened to hear of the death of Merv Griffin. The most definitive word to describe him is that he was "gracious", not just theoretically, but in practice. He was exuberant about life. He was charming and observant with that amazing sense of humour. Merv discovered Mrs. Miller in his early show’s audience and was announced originally by the late great English thespian Arthur Treacher. Merv had sparkling conversation because he was considerate, well bred and a diplomat. He was from the old world of class and manners. Charismatic Merv Griffin you will be missed in more ways than one. The fields of Elysium are illumined by that unforgettable brilliant smile. I will never forget him but remember the fun loving gentleman apart who was beloved in life and in death not forgotten. Born to talk and live. Thanks for it all Merv.
