'Columbo' Actor Peter Falk Passes Away at 83 -- Profile of an Iconic TV Detective


 A beloved American actor has died -- Peter Falk, best known for his portrayal of Detective Columbo
  in the television movies series as well as the grandfather in "Princess Bride" has passed away from Alzheimer's disease.

My family and I enjoyed watching the Columbo movies, and as I mentioned in yesterday's post about Glen Campbell, I lost my own father to Alzheimer's. I sure hope they find a cure for this horrible disease soon.
