Andrew Sachs Dies at 86

86-year-old Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs died following his battle with dementia, which lasted four years.

According to wife Melody Sachs, Sachs suffered from vascular dementia. He was first diagnosed in 2012 and spent eight months in a nursing home facility. After suffering from intense pneumonia, Sachs lost his capacity to speak, a common characteristic of people suffering from the disease. Mrs. Sachs said she had the best life with her husband and no one should feel sorry for her loss. Despite his long battle with dementia, Sachs remained positive until the end of his life. Friends of Sachs in the film industry describe him as a hilarious and extraordinary person. He started his acting career on BBC radio and later captured our hearts when he played Manuel in John Cleese’s comedy series Fawlty Towers.

We at Peck Ritchey, LLC expresses our sincerest condolences to the family of Andrew Sachs. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

Paul Walker’s daughter to live with mother and nanny

Paul Walker’s daughter will live with her biological mother and a nanny after a Los Angeles family court commissioner dismissed the guardianship case over the 15-year-old teen, the ABC News reported on May 28.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner David Cowan decided to drop the guardianship case for Paul Walker’s daughter, Meadow Walker, after the legal counsel he assigned for Meadow proved that no further court oversight for the teenager’s care was necessary. Amy Nieman, the attorney representing Meadow, told the court that an adequate plan had been set up for the care of the teenager.

Cheryl Walker, Paul Walker’s mother, had previously claimed guardianship over her granddaughter, but later decided to drop the case due to her granddaughter’s wishes. Meadow’s mother, Rebecca Solteros, is currently sober and receiving treatment for alcoholism.
