OMG! I think we all knew that this day would come but one of the funniest characters on television died this morning. Estelle Getty (better known as Sophia Petrillo on Golden Girls) passed away this morning at her home in Los Angeles. She was 84. Estelle was surrounded by her family and friends when she went away. She suffered from Lewy Body Dementia for years.

Sleep peacefully Estelle. . .

    So sad about Estelle Getty. She was THE Golden Girl. (My Mom LOVED that show…so I remember fondly many an evening spent watching it with her and my fam.) But, I suppose she’s in a better place. Plus, she had dimentia…my grandmother had that…it’s a rough thing when you can’t remember your loved ones or your history.
