First, my condolences to the family and all his admirers. I really enjoyed his acting, especially as Columbo. I wonder whether he took care of his estate. Luckily for us, our grandfather had the foresight and knowledge of a new kind of service for estate planning where he stored copies of all the important documents he had such as his will, his life insurance, copies of his passwords for his bank accounts (including the one overseas), the name and phone number of his lawyer, and the combination of his safe. All this was stored securely with E-Z-Safe, and was transfered to our family automatically when he passed away.

Columbo is my favorite show of all time. I own every single episode of classic Columbo. I am not a big fan of new episodes, but the new ones are OK. I still watch Columbo every Saturday night. Watching Columbo on Saturday nights is my 15+ years old ritual. I know every episode and every line by heart. When I work on my personal project, I play Columbo as background. The sound relaxes me. Young Jamie Lee Curtis was in Columbo episode, so was Samantha from Sex In The City. Of course, they had amazing guest stars. Good time. Good memory. Peter Falk will be missed. God bless his family.
