I find her passing more shocking than Estelle Getty's because no one knew Bea was ill with cancer. Everyone knew Getty was ill for a while and was in failing health the last years of her life, so sadly (but not surprisingly) an announcement about her death was somewhat expected.

For Bea, no one knew she was battling cancer (we still don't know what type of cancer). Sure she looked a bit frail the past year or so, but most of that chalked it up to aging (she was nearly 86). This past December, standing next to Angela Lansbury in a theater lobby, she did a short interview with 'ET', and said her health was fine and she was mulling over a few TV scripts.

Hearing about her passing was shocking to all.

Default I sit with mixed emotions...

First of all, I read through all the posts here before I decided to post as well. I would like to say how nice it is that others share the same emotions. I found myself saying...what? Bea is gone? My first thought was, come on, she wasn't really that old...but then I realized...she did have a good long life and I believe she gave much more to others than she kept for herself.

Through my sadness I went through memorable scenes in my mind. Now our Estelle will have to keep Stan at bay once more. That thought made me smile and gave me a few more things I wish to share. First, if you have admiration for someone in your life, even if you think they are unreachable by you, take the time and let them know. You may be the person who makes them smile once more. Finally, I thought about my most memorable moments...

Hearing Maude proclaim God's gonna get you for that...

The scene where Dorothy says to Sophia...what are you trying to do...pickle yourself?

The brilliance of the episode where Dorothy goes to all the doctors and tells Dr. Bud off in the restaraunt

Sonny And Cher revisited

And last but not least

Thanks for the lovely prayer Rose...Now shut up and get into bed...

Nice work Dorothy

That wasn't me

Oh boy am I in trouble...

We are all better having shared her gifts and I will always be grateful she followed her heart to share with us.

Default PETA praises the late Bea Arthur

Link

Among the many tributes paid to Bea Arthur, who died on Saturday, came kind words from the folks at animal rights group People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Arthur put her love for animals to hard work, campaigning for many PETA issues and becoming an honorary director for the group for more than 20 years. Earlier this week the group planted memorial roses for the late actress at PETA's Bea Arthur Dog Park, which opened next to the group's Norfolk, Va. headquarters in 2006.

Arthur joined PETA in 1987 after "The Golden Girls" did an anti-fur episode and Arthur, Rue McClanahan, and Betty White filmed a PETA anti-fur public service announcement on the set of the show.

PETA received thousands of fur coats that were donated by former fur-wearers after Arthur ran ads - including in the playbill for the Norfolk Opera House - asking people to cast off their coats.

She campaigned against the force-feeding of ducks in the foie gras trade, traveling to London with PETA founder Ingrid E. Newkirk, where she called on Harrods bosses to stop selling the pate.

She spoke out against animal experimentation and abuse of factory farm animals and opposed the use of exotic animals in circuses.

"We have lost one of the greatest comic actors of all time, and animals have lost a great defender," said PETA's executive vice president Tracy Reiman. "When it comes to animals, Bea was a true golden girl."

ET had another segment on tonight about Bea. Adrienne Barbeau (Carole from Maude) talked for a few minutes about Bea, and how she was fearless and would tell you what she thought. She also talked about how no one will ever forget Bea. Short but sweet.

I'm really looking forward to watching the Hallmark channel's tribute to Bea, which will be on practically all day today. We'll always miss you, Bea...

As someone who grew up watching Maude and later the Golden Girls, I was so sad to hear about Bea. Watching the GG Hallmark tribute to Bea was so bittersweet last night.

I saw her in person on stage about 5-6 years ago in her one woman play. Bea had such a great presence.

RIP Bea...you will be missed.
