Actor Dennis Weaver's widow, GERRY, has vowed to continue his work with environmental and humanitarian causes. The GUNSMOKE and MCCLOUD star succumbed to cancer last Friday (24FEB06) at the age of 81. She says, "I intend to carry on his legacy. "He's been inspiring me since I was 17-years-old - we were married for 60 years - so I'm sure he will continue to do so." Weaver reports that Dennis' Institute Of Ecolonomics, the non-profit organisation dedicated to finding positive, economically sound solutions for environmental problems, is "going strong with lots of projects". One of the institute's main focuses is a bio-diesel fuel program that the actor had started, with country singer Willie Nelson helping to promote it.
