didn't even hear about it. He was good in his day. I think too many drugs took a big toll on his lifespan though...

What took him out faster than anything was that he had Multiple Sclerosis. Nasty disease which affects everyone who has it differently.

65 isn't a bad age. But, think about living the last 20 years of your life with damaged nerve endings, loss of muscle (and bladder) control, chills, shakes, slurred speach, and your body pretty much just deteriorating and there's nothing that can be done about it.


RIP Richard. You touched a lot of people's lives in more ways than just the comedy you were so well at.

One of the earliest and most well known African-American comedians (and actor). See here for more----> http://www.indiana.edu/~bfca/events/pryorbio.html


And Fjorn, I had forgotten that he had MS. I'd heard that at some point, and I'm sure you're right, that had a bigger impact on his life that drugs did.

Did anyone watch TV last night or this morning? They showed some clips from interviews with him 10 years ago. He was very thin, and very frail looking from the effects of MS on him.

Multiple Sclerosis is something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy, especially in it's most aggressive form.

For those who don't know about MS, take a look here:

I'd love to be able to do this ride again in the near future:

That's rough Frank. Hope he doesn't have as aggressive of a form of MS as what my mom did. She was diagnosed with it at the age of 38, but they say that she most likely was suffering from it as early as her teens.

Most people who have it die from something other than MS, yet MS still has a key role in their death but it's more of from being a side effect. If they didn't have MS, they most likely would have been able to shrug off the cause of it.

If he hasn't yet, he needs to get in and start working with neurologists. They have some pretty good stuff out there now that can help, compared to when my mom was alive a few years ago.

Stick with him, and be understanding when he doesn't have the energy to do much of anything. I hope he does live a long life without suffering from nothing more than minor affects of MS.
