Whit's wiping down the counter, Connie's mopping the floor, and the kids are sipping on their milkshakes. If you want to talk about Adventures in Odyssey the radio drama, this is the spot to do just that!
I feel extremely sad as I type this down. And I am surprised that no one else has heard about it yet, seeing that it happened almost a week ago. I really don't how to say it. In fact, I don't think I really can say it at all right now. It's too much of a shock. I'll just give you the following link: In Memory of Paul Herlinger. It's on "The Olympian"'s home page (it's a well-known newspaper), so, I really have no reason whatsoever to doubt the truth of the article. This is really sad...

I was hoping this was going to be misinformation like the thread about Alan Young's death. I guess he quit Odyssey because of health issues? Or maybe it's just a coincidence that he died so soon after quitting...
Regardless, He was a great voice actor; when I was young, I couldn't even tell they had changed the actor for Whit. He probably did save the show.
EDIT: I'm stickying this because it's important.
So you lost your trust,
And you never should have.
No, you never should have.
But don't break your back
If you ever see this,
But don't answer that.

With the windows all closed,
I'll be doing my best
I'll see you soon.
Aww, I couldn't believe it when I saw the title of this thread.
He was a good Whit.
...for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
She left many of us behind. She left us heartbroken. And though we cry now there'll come a time when we'll laugh. Because we'll see her again someday. We'll be with her in heaven. And when we go to heaven she'll be there to greet us. She'll be there to say "Welcome home." -From a poem that SnC wrote about her grandmother
Yes, 31899. But if you remember the Alan Young scare started because of a Wikipedia article, I believe; and they are not to be trusted much at the best of times anyway. This article however is an obituary that was published in a newspaper (The Olympian) and then from there the article was uploaded to their website. I don't see how this information would have found its way into a newspaper without some foundation in reality.
My feelings on his death is that it almost feels as if Whit himself has died. For many years Paul has BEEN Whit, and he will forever be remembered for his wonderful role on the show. Each new Mr. Whittaker, to me, feels like a new character almost. I was going to write more, but I don't really feel up to it yet. It will take a while to get over the fact that he's gone. My sympathy goes out to his family and friends.
