This news reminded me of a documentary I saw a few years ago on HBO (I forget the name of it). A group of kids at a rural Tennessee school undertook a diversity project where they sought to collect paper clips in the millions to represent the millions of lives lost in the Holocaust. Tom Bosley was featured briefly in this documentary as a celebrity that recieved a letter from the kids, and wrote them back with his donation. It resonated with me to this very day.

Tom Bosley was well known for playing a Catholic priest, and numerous Protestants, but was actually Jewish, so farewell great actor:

Mr. Cunningham and Mrs. Cleaver in the same week! Who's next??:( It breaks my heart, but at least both had long lives.

Tom Bosley has a small role in the documentary Paper Clips that always makes me cry. It is about rural students in Tennessee learning about the Holocaust. He had relatives murdered in the concentration camps.

Paper Clips was so fabulous! I had forgotten all about it.

I never watched Happy Days, but did enjoy Tom Bosley onMurder She Wrote

To me, he will ALWAYS be Father Frank Dowling of St. Michaels Parish.

Thanks for reminding me about his participation in Paper Clips. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we also got to see him play the role of Maurice, Belle's father, in Beauty & the Beast on Broadway (circa 1994?).

RIP, Tom.
