Phyllis Diller Passes Away at 95
Comedian and artist Phyllis Diller passes away at 95. An artist you might say?
Yes, an artist. I was surprised too by this news. I was invited to her home for an art show some 5 years ago.
I have four artworks from her (as shown above). The first one on the left Diller named "Melissa" and I guess that's why my husband bought it since it is my name. The one in the middle is called "Prudence Prenup" and the one on the right is called "Marriage."
The fourth one (on the second tab) is a poem she wrote accented with watercolors named "My Prayer."
"On this happy day
I am thankful
For my blessings
And I pray
For renewed belief
This bond of love
Thank you Phyllis Diller for all the laughs!
May you rest in peace.
