So sad - the passing of a legend.

I was glued to the TV for both her sitcoms - which extended over many years - and the reruns. She was the first TV actress that I know of who wore slacks in the show. She was one of my idols.

I find that she was only 10 years my senior. (She died at 80) I believe I heard in passing on the news that she had diabetes.

VeeJay.....I agree, she was a talented and classy women who played a big role for those of us that are 'boomers'! She was a type I and worked with childhood diabetes...a very good cause. May she RIP!

I am a few years your JR but very few. My wife lost her Father in November (he was 100) and he was the last of our parents to pass. During his funeral I realized, looking at my wife....were next!

It was a sobering thought! I immediately thought of the old Mr. Ryan at the beginning of the movie 'Saving Private Ryan'.....his only question is did he live a good life....I can say yes, although I hope to have a long time, if I pass tomorrow, I would have few regrets....

Life goes on.....for a while anyway!
