Coming & Going

Dana Carvey is set to headline the June 18 Barnes Hospital Foundation gala. The 60 year-old comedian is an original SNL cast member and identified with his “The Church Lady” breakout character.
TERRY BAER, son of the late Pat and J. Arthur “Cubby” Baer, II, former head of Stix, Baer & Fuller – now Dillard’s – has died of complications from heart surgery. He was on life support for several weeks. Terry, always greeted with smooches and embraces by society cream puffs, owned Blacktie Missouri, an online wrap of social events in photos. He was beloved by all.

    The news about Terry just darkened my day. I am so sorry to read this. Terry was a wonderful man who always made you feel like you belonged to his large circle of friends. Many know of his famous “Friday Feddish” group that for decades had lunch together every Friday at 12:30, always at a different restaurant, always bringing together people from all walks of life. My deepest sympathies to Mimi and Jonathan.

    Dana Carvey spent many years on “SNL”, but was not an original cast member. The show debuted on NBC in 1975 and he joined it in 1986. I hope Carvey does his Church Lady gig, just to hear holier-than-thou RCC hypocrite Bill Donohue dub it “contemptible”.

    We should all have as many friends as Terry Baer. I am not sure I ever attended either a wake or funeral that was better attended. The wake started at five and there was already an hour wait at that hour. I heard one funeral attendee say it was like Christmas and Easter on the same day at Ladue Chapel. What a testament to a true gentleman. RIP, Terry.
