Eddie Arnold, 1918-2008

Eddie Arnold  died this morning, days short of his 90th birthday. Originally a country-crooner, Arnold was perhaps the most successful cross-over artist of his time.

In March, his wife of 66-years, Sally, died and in the same month, Arnold fell outside his home, injuring his hip. He died at a health care facility near Nashville, Tennessee.

My Grandma Lola , who died in 1987, loved him. She had an autographed photo of him in her kitchen, jus’ above the dinner table, so the knowledge of his passing brings both a smile and a tear to me.
