I hate the fact that Dean Martin is gone. We need him.

There will never be another Dean Martin. I’m certain his multitude of talents will remain in memories for many years. And aren’t we all very fortunate that he passed through our lives? And left us smiling? I know I am.
Interviewer: Tell me, do you have any regrets at all when you look back at your life? Is there anything that you would have wanted to have done differently in any way at all?
Dean: I wouldn’t change one thing. Not one thing.
Happy 95th Birthday, Dino Paul Crocetti! (June 7, 1917 - December 25, 1995)
