I took an interest in Luke Perry’s life and death. He died on March 4, 2019 of a massive stroke at the age of 52. The reason for this interest was that my father also died suddenly of a massive stroke at the age of 48. One of his daughters is 18, the same age as I was in 1970 when my father died. I must admit that I was only slightly familiar with Luke’s life and his work, so naturally I “Googled” him. I am impressed that he had auditioned for 256 acting jobs before receiving his first acceptance. That’s the definition of perseverance. Rest in peace.
