Murph: I have a confession to make. I have always been a huge Tim Conway fan and have 'stolen" comedy bits and comic timing from him my whole life. I was crushed first by his dementia diagnosis earlier and now his death. The gifts he gave all of us will be appreciated for years to come. Never underestimate the power of laughter, its a mighty mighty thing. God Bless and RIP Tim. I wanted to talk more about it on the show yesterday but it was difficult. I'm so glad to see ME TV is doing a tribute to him all next week when they show Carol Burnett Show reruns at 10 pm.
