Remember that 80’s (maybe it was the 70’s) comedy Laverne and Shirley? It was a spin-off from Happy Days that always began with Laverne (the one who had the letter ‘L’ monogrammed on her blouses) and Shirley skipping down the road, arm in arm, chanting “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!” Will…I’ m honored to say that Crush Photo Studios had the opportunity to photograph Squiggy from the show! He was the one who always said “Hello” in that recognizable, nasally voice. The shoot was for a spread in ABILITY Magazine, where he discussed his journey through life with multiple sclerosis (MS). I didn’t know this prior, but, he actually kept his MS a secret for most of his profession in order to prevent jeopardizing his Hollywood career.
