Are You Being Served? Star Dies

I'm a big fan of British comedies and Are You Being Served? has been one of my favorites for years. I am sad to learn of John Inman's death. He played the role of Mr. Humphries on the long-running British comedy. He will be missed. :cry:

John Inman was a comic genius and a charming man. He was loved by his cast mates and people around the world. He loved the part of Mr. Humphries, and openly called the character a "poof". I loved Mr. Humphries and John Inman equally. I am deeply saddended by the news of his passing. I will miss him, as I miss Paul Lynde and Liberace and many other extremly talented individuals that have paved the way for a new generation of gay men and women to be much more open about who and what they are, while doing what it is they love to do, entertain.
