Jesus called Celeste Holm at the spry age of 95.


Retired for the past few years, Holm had been on the range with her husband, Frank Basile, who was 41 years younger than she was.

Why, she’s not holmly at all!

Apparently she loved his cooking, especially when he made pork.  And he apparently loved bringing Holm the bacon.

“There’s no place like her,” he said in an exclusive interview with Ghoul Pool sources.  “I am a man & she was my castle.  She was truly where my heart was.”

But what he says he will miss the most is that little game they always played where he tried to hang his hat on her.

Apparently the last thing she worked on around the house was a batch of cookies, which though wacky circumstances, ended up being consumed by their Shiba Inu.  “That damn dog ate Celeste’s work,” Frank said, fighting back the tears.

“She always wanted the fireplace going, no matter how hot it was,” he continued after recovering, “She always kept her fires burning.”

One of her last, dying wishes was to watch her favorite movie, a 1971 animated film starring Ringo Starr & Dustin Hoffman, called “The Point.”  Basile’s last errand would be to go pick up a copy of that movie for her.  “And that’s the last thing I did for her.  I drove “The Point” to her.”

Unfortunately, he didn’t make it in time because he decided to take the long way to Holm.

I tell ya what, I can make these jokes ‘till the cows come holm
