Ruth Robinson Duccini, the last of the original female Munchkins from the 1939 movie "The Wizard of Oz," has died. She was 95.
With her death, only one actor who played one of the original 124 Munchkins in the movie remains alive.

Ironically, I learned of him back in the 70's while watching an episode of Gilligan's Island with my grandfather, who fought in the Philippines in WWII.

He told me about how they were coming out of the jungle for years after the war.

My father passed away this afternoon. 89 years old.
My mother had passed ten years ago, most of his friends had passed before him.
My comfort comes from knowing that they're all reunited.
