Will Lifetime pay tribute to her with a GG marathon or will they not do that since they are losing the rights to the show next year?

I am so glad to hear Lifetime is giving Estelle a proper tribute. I've been watching tributes to her on all the entertainment shows and have shed a few tears, remembering what a wonderfully talented actress she was as well as an incredible human being...

I haven't been around much lately on these boards but I had to stop in to pay my respects to one of the finest actresses television ever knew. She was beyond brilliant in the role of Sophia Petrillo, and at least that 7 year long performance will be with us always. One of the greats gone. Rest in Peace Estelle, you'll be missed.
