“Today is the 31st anniversary of the death of one of the most influential 人 in my life and I am so
, so sad
,” Gilbert wrote in an essay for PanCAN
, a charity that funds those affected by the disease
她继续: “You would think that I would have been feeling this kind of sadness last year, on the 30th anniversary. 毕竟, 30 seems like more of a landmark number than 31. Yet here I am, feeling the grief and loss deeply today. Grief and loss don’t care about landmark numbers. In my experience they creep up and hit you when you least expect it.”
Gilbert added she is missing Landon now more than ever.
“Like today,” 她写了. “Today I am missing my mentor, my acting partner, my favorite director, father figure, 朋友, and boss. Today I am missing my Pa. Today I am missing Michael Landon. 这么多, I can feel it in my chest, in my heart. I am aching for him.”
“草原上的小房子” aired from 1974 至 1983. It followed the Ingalls family in Plum Creek, 明尼苏达州. Gilbert played the second-oldest daughter Laura, who narrated the show.
Gilbert also asked for help in finding a cure for pancreatic cancer.
“On this anniversary of the death of my Pa, Michael Landon, to please make a contribution to PanCAN. Do it in Mike’s name. You can help end this disease and it’s horrid, indiscriminate destruction today. 请, please help in whatever way you can,” 她写了.
