    Beverly Garland, who played Barbara Harper Douglas on the classic sitcom "My Three Sons" for the last three seasons of its tenure passed away on Friday December 5, 2008 in Los Angeles after a lengthy illness. Known as an actress of great range with a long and varied career, I will remember her kindess and openess in discussing the series with me back in 2000 via mail for the episode guide. The personally autographed picture she sent me is also something I shall treasure. Rest in peace Bev, you will be sadly missed.

    Geoff Brown,

    Melbourne, Australia.

    It's great that you were in contact with Beverly Garland, Geoff.

    Before My Three Sons, she played Bing's wife in The Bing Crosby Show. Of course, she later co-starred as Kate Jackson's mom in Scarecrow and Mrs. King. She also owned the Beverly Garland Holiday Inn and Conference Center, founded by her late husband.

    Rest in peace, Bev.
