So sad to hear about Alex Trebek’s passing today. He was a welcome friend in our home every night. So much so, that the dogs knew when they heard the Jeopardy theme song there would be no walks for at least 30 minutes. He was a class act, so good at what he did and made it look easy. From every account he was a kind and good man. You felt he was rooting for everyone, wanted the contestants to shine and when my husband and I yelled answers from our living room it kinda felt like he could hear (especially if I was right). He was a class act and bravely fought cancer while continuing to work and bring so much joy to all of us. He will be greatly missed. Love and prayers to his family and everyone who loved him. #alextrebek #rip
