It's been a while since I discontinued the practice of posting pictures of cakes to celebrate the birthdays of fellow VO-BB members. I'm sure most people are unaware of how it all started. It dates back to Julie Williams' old board, the original voiceovers-dot-com (there's another VO board?). A woman named Heather Cooper began the tradition over there and I picked it up and brought it over here.

The reason I bring this up is, Facebook reminded me, as it has done every year, that today is Heather's birthday. I am somewhat embarrassed to say that I left cheerful birthday greetings on her page last year and the year before, only to subsequently discover that Heather had died of cancer in late 2016.

I don't plan to start posting cakes again; this is the closest I'll come to that. But I did want to acknowledge this one birthday, one last time.

Remembrances of voice people who have gone before us are a worthy tribute.
