I have been watching reruns of Welcome Back Kotter and remember watching them when they were famous. However, I was shocked to discover just today about Ron's passing away. I was shocked and sad to read about this on the 2nd anniversary of his death. I enjoyed him very much and he made me laugh every time he was on the screen.
