    I know Estelle has been very sick for a few years now, and I've looked for information on her health to see if she was still alive. I can't find anything. I hope she is still alive, because I love her so much. She's one of my favourite actresses. I watch her all the time on The Golden Girls. I've even taped a few episodes. She always puts a smile on my face, especially when I'm feeling down. Does anyone know if she's still alive? If she is, I hope she's alright. Poor thing.

    I looked on a website, and it said she was still alive. But... that was written 2 years ago, so it didn't really help. I'll look some more.

    God I hope she is still alive. I'll be really upset if she isn't.

    I did a little bit of homework and it appears she's alive but not doing well. We'd definitly know if she passed, due to the news stories. I'm sorry she no longer fufills autograph requests though. My thoughts are with her and her family.

    I'm so glad she's still alive, but it breaks my heart that she's so sick. I know how tough it must be on her family. Believe me. I do. I had a grandmother dying of Colon Cancer. I just hope that someone can fix her. I'm not saying it will happen, but it's better to have faith than to act like it's the end. My heart goes out to her and her loved ones.

    I'm so sad! She and Bea Arthur were my favorites on the Golden Girls. May she rest in peace.

    Golden Girls would have been nothing without her. She was a great actress and she will always live on through her great career.

    *Sigh* I'm very sad to see her go, but I'm so happy she doesn't have to suffer again. Her body may be dead, but she's alive in our hearts.

    I just... damn, I can't believe she's dead. I've loved The Golden Girls since age 11. In those 10 years, I didn't think this day would come this soon. In my opinion, 84 is too young to die. She was a great actress and always made me laugh. She never deserved to be sick. She's at least in heaven now, and I hope she can see me watching her show and laughing along with it and all the funny lines she said. I hope she can see how much she makes me laugh. She's sooo awesome. I miss you Estelle!!!!!!!!!! RIP.

    Awww Sweetie I'm sure she's watching over all of us and seeing the smiles on our faces when we remember how wonderful she was. She's never gone, even if her body is. She'll be with us forever.
