Default Farewell Estelle

Today (July 22, 2008) is a sad day for all fans of "The Golden Girls" as the show lost one of its own. Estelle Getty stole scene after scene in multiple episodes as the smart-mouthed Sophia. I was truly saddened to hear that she had passed away earlier this morning. I had just watched a couple of episodes last night from the Season 3 DVD of "The Golden Girls" that I own. I started watching this show way back when it first premiered on NBC. The night: Saturday September 14, 1985. I watched every episode from the first one to the last one, and it became my all-time favorite television show. I loved this show so much that I recorded every episode off of our VCR, and now I own all 7 seasons of the show on DVD. Estelle was a big reason why "The Golden Girls" is my #1 TV show. Sophia was one of the funniest characters in TV history. She deservedly won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her work on the show. But tonight we are mourning her passing after a long battle with dementia.

R.I.P. Estelle. Thanks for all the laughs and the memories. You will sorely be missed.

RIP Estelle. This is such sad news. I was really surprised when I first heard, but I guess I shouldn't have been. I mean, she's been sick for a few years now. I'm so glad Lifetime is doing a tribute. I hoped they would, but I wasn't really counting on it. It's nice to see I was wrong.

My Mom and me bonded over watching the Golden Girls. I'm so sad to hear about the death of Sophia. Sophia along with the other crazy characters on the show were a big part of my childhoold. I looked forward to watching it with my Mom everyday.

Estelle Getty was truly a rare talent. Her success as Sophia will forever be remembered and could never be matched. I love the Golden Girls and Sophia was definately my favorite....In the words of Rue " She stole the show" The loss of Estelle deeply saddens me, but I am glad she can rest in peace now after years of being ill. Estelle, you will forever be remebered and love. Thanks for all of the "Love and Laughter".

That's a very lovely tribute and the way I'm sure Estelle will wish to be remembered...

I was so sad to hear this news. She was a wonderful actress and brought a lot of laughter to a lot of people. She will be missed by many. I will be praying for her family during this time of grief.

Rest in Peace Estelle.
