    The heart and soul of the Golden Girls has passed away.

    Rest in peace, dear lady, we will miss you.

    from http://www.estellegetty.com/main.html

    "To all of Estelle's Fans,

    Sadly, today July 22, 2008 at 5:35 a.m. Pacific Time, we said our last good-byes to our little friend Estelle, who passed away and made her journey to the great beyond. Although it was a trip that she never wanted to take, she went gracefully, in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her family and her very loving care-givers.

    I can't say I didn't expect this to happen sooner or later, given her deteriorated health of the past couple of years, but that doesn't lessen the shock or sorrow any.

    Rest in peace Estelle Getty. You were quite the funny lady. You have brought joy to many. Hopefully you got the same joy back from your fans.

    Sad news but at least she won't suffer anymore. I know it was heart breaking for her Golden girls friends seeing her and her not knowing who they are. Rest in peace and thank you for Sophia.

    I was just watching clips from the TV Land Awards from this year and I noticed that Estelle wasn't there with the rest of the Golden Girls gang. I knew her health was deteriorating quickly, but I didn't know she would be gone from us this soon..I'm truly and deeply saddened by the news of her passing..

    Rest In Peace Estelle. Thank you for all the joy and laughter you brought us.

    I honestly thought she had already passed away. I thought i remembered hearing that when they were talking about why there wasnt a Golden Girls DVD commentary when the DVD came out a couple years ago.

    Heaven must've needed a Golden Girl.

    Rest in Peace, Ma...thank you for being a friend.
