Golden Girl Estelle Getty Passes Away at 84

Actress Estelle Getty, most beloved for playing sassy Sophia on Golden Girls, passed away early this morning. She had been suffering from advanced dementia and was at her home in LA at the time. Her son had this to say, "She was loved throughout the world in six continents, and if they loved sitcoms in Antarctica she would have been loved on seven continents. She was one of the most talented comedic actresses who ever lived." Our thoughts are with her loved ones, she will be missed.

I adore so much the GGs and so glad that I have videos of her to watch always. No matter what I feel, I look at one of the shows and I laugh. I have only to think of Sophia and I laugh. Even the next show they did when Dorothy left, the remaining still made me laugh.

I cannot imagine a more fulfilled life than hers. Go to any blog or forum today and people are pouring their heart out about how she made them belly laugh...what can it be more beautiful than making other people happy, even 20 minutes at a time?!? I'm sure she's now making God laugh in heaven... : h a l o :

"Picture it...Sicily 1912" :)My mom and I used to love watching Golden Girls back in the day. They don't have heartwarming shows like this anymore. Rest in peace, Estelle.
