    Cool here and it is a sad day for all James Garner fans and you can include me in that long list. He was a favorite of mine from the early days of “Maverick” and I especially liked the “Rockford Files”! It wasn’t your typical detective show. On a personal note, when Mrs. Cool first came to the US from Guatemala, she worked for James and whenever we would see him on TV she would comment to me on how kind he always was to her and how much he loved her cooking!
