Unhappy Estelle Getty passed away :(

Per her website 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.

Estelle's legacy will live on and on through the comedy and laughter she gave to us all, which will forever keep us laughing out loud.

For us here, who have known and cared for her for so many years, we've lost our dear little friend who always kept us entertained by filling our days with joyful laughter. Estelle's fans across the globe have lost the feisty little lady known as Sophia Petrillo, whose quick wit, cutting remarks, and outrageous punch lines will forever be quoted and remembered.

Estelle was a fighter. She always stood up for the underdogs, fought for equality for all, and always pictured a world filled with "Love and Laughter" --her most favorite catch phrase.

Estelle, we love you and will miss you dearly. We pray that you are met at the Pearly Gate with open arms and a warm welcome by all who have passed before you. If there's a stage over there, I know you'll be on it. If there's a thrift shop, I know you'll be shopping, and if there's a deli, I know you'll be eating there holding court with Rhoda and Sylvia ... and the laughter will be heard throughout the heavens.

Goodbye, dear friend. Thank you for all the talent and love that you've shared with us during your time here on Earth. You have touched my life, and the lives of so many others who will never forget you.

Until we meet again...

Love and Laughter to You,

Paul Chapdelaine

This is really sad news, I haven't seen many episodes of The Golden Girls but she was simply wonderful as Sophia.

I was just watching Golden Girls late last night and still laughing at Estelle's smart-ass lines that I laughed at many times before.

RIP Estelle and thanks for all the laughs!!

Probably one of the best supporting actresses ever on a sitcom! She will be deeply missed. See our tribute for more info:

This is very sad news. Estelle was one of my favorites on the show next to Betty White.

I spent many an evening watching the Golden Girls when I was growing up and now I have passed my love of this show and in particular Estelle Getty's character Sophia to my children. We will miss Ms. Getty but she will live on in the humor and wisdom of Sophia Petrillo. Rest in Peace your fans are going to miss you.
