Re: Laurel Griggs. NYPost/Page Six reporting cause of death:
Quote
Young Broadway actress Laurel Griggs suffered a fatal asthma attack while doing homework in her family’s Manhattan apartment — calling out to her father that she didn’t “feel so good,” kin said Sunday. ...

“She said, ‘I don’t think I feel so good,’ which immediately set off all the alarms in my head,” her father, Andy Griggs, told The Post on Sunday. “She would never normally say something like that.”

Laurel was born with asthma and took medication for the condition, he said. The teen previously suffered a similar serious attack three years ago, and both of her parents closely monitored her afterward, the dad said. ...

Speaking of causes of death of actors (we mentioned his death in July on this thread):
Quote
“Seinfeld” actor Charles Levin died from an accidental fall, a report revealed Sunday — four months after the gruesome discovery of his vulture-picked body in a remote section of Oregon. ...

Police discovered Levin’s body at the bottom of a ravine, where they believe he fell trying to get help. He was naked without “external genitalia present” and had been partially-consumed by vultures.

“There were signs of animal scavenging likely in the form of turkey vultures as there was evidence of bird feces on and around the body,” the report stated.

Levin — who played the Mohel in the 1993 “Seinfeld” episode “The Bris” — was best known for portraying Elliot Novak in the CBS sitcom “Alice.”

Watched Ed Sullivan every Sunday night from the time I was a little mite.  As a kid, Topo Gigio was one of my favorite segments.  Even stiff old Ed seemed to enjoy the little mouse.  Rest in peace, Miss Perego.

Terrible story about Mr. Levin.  May he rest in peace too.

Born on Oct. 14, 1921, George Hursey grew up with nine siblings on a farm near Durham, North Carolina. They lived in a log cabin and ate homegrown vegetables and livestock raised by their parents, he later told his children

RIP and thank you for your service and sacrifice.
