Our deepest sympathy goes out to Mr. Drougett's family. His grandfather, Michael "Coco" Polakovs, is headed down to Sarasota to attend the services.

From Bill Strong's blog YESTERDAY'S TOWNS...


A Memorial Service for Mauricio “Lit” Droguett will be held at 10:00am on Thursday,
July 17th, at St. Martha Catholic Church
200 N. Orange Avenue, Sarasota, Florida 34236
A Celebration of Lit’s Life will follow in the church's “Friendship Room”


To the living, I am gone
To the sorrowful, I will never return
To the angry, I was cheated
But to the happy, I am at peace
And to the faithful, I have never left
I cannot speak, but I can listen
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard
So as you stand upon the shore
Gazing at the beautiful sea, remember me
As you look in awe at a mighty forest
And in its grand majesty, remember me
Remember me in your hearts,
In your thoughts, and the memories of the
Times we loved, the times we cried,
the battle we fought and the times we laughed
For if you always think of me,
I will never have gone.

How tragic. My best wishes to the Drougett family and all of his friends.

I believe Mauricio Drougette was related to Zapata and Henry Barrigan. Zap used to talk about his grandfather who was a clown named 'Drougett.' I think you have video of him performing the levetation gag?

I worked very closly with Lit for more than 3 years...He was probably the kindest, smartest, gentelest, most giving person I ever knew....I still cannot believe he is not with us now...he will always be in my soul..I especially feel for Chaz..He loves her so much and always will....Pamela Runyon
