    Such a talented lady, she will be missed. I'm sad that she had such a hard time in the end.

      Sad News. I recall the other 3 golden girls talking about her being totally out of it towards the end.

          So sad to see her go. I'd been hearing for a while that she wasn't doing well though, so at least she can be at peace now and perhaps provide a few laughs whereever she is now.

            Not all together surprising, though I'm sad to hear of it. She'll be missed.

            I remember reading how she didnt' remember any of her cast mates. So sad.
            "But every night, when it gets dark
            and the stars come out,
            I'll look up on her behalf.
            I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

              'Golden Girls' Actress Estelle Getty Dies


              LOS ANGELES (July 22) - Estelle Getty, the diminutive actress who spent 40 years struggling for success before landing a role of a lifetime in 1985 as the sarcastic octogenarian Sophia on TV's "The Golden Girls," has died. She was 84.

              She will truly be missed, a great talent, a great lady....God Bless You....now it's time to make the angels laugh...

                      Very sad news indeed. I,too, am a huge Golden Girls fan.

                        So sad. Disney should make a Golden Girls dark ride in her honor.

                          Didn't watch much of the Golden Girls, but the times I caught it on TV, I found her character very funny. Sad news.

                            Maybe LMA won't run today. (Residential St./D-MGM joke)
                            She's in a better place, everybody.

                              The Golden Girls in general, and her "Sophia" character in particular, did a lot to blow up preconceived notions that we have about older folks in general.

                              The four of them together were a great comic ensemble, in a show that was, well, quite "racy" at times!

                              I don't often watch the reruns, but I just happened to catch one yesterday. Kinda spooky, since I learned of her death only after that.

                              She was a fine actress who was much more than just "Sophia" but with the power of TV, that's what we best remember her for.

                              RIP, and as one post-er already said, "thank you for being a friend..."
