Just received this ... It was posted 2/15/07, which means Jim passed away on Valentine's Day.

" . . . James Talmadge, Buster Keaton's older son and Melissa Talmadge Cox's father . . . passed away yesterday after a long illness. With him goes yet another living link to memories of Buster."

If you'd like to send Melissa a sympathy card, here's her address:
