Estelle Getty passed away last night at the age of 84, just 3 days shy of her 85th birthday after a long battle against Lewy Bodies Dementia.

You know, I’ll admit it: Flipping channels on TV and the Golden Girls are on? Yah, I’m watching that. I really do adore that shore, and I loved Getty’s feisty Sophia. I have to say that reading the news of her passing actually choked me up a little.

So g’night, Estelle Getty.

And Death? Hands the fuck off Bea Arthur, Betty White, or Rue McClanahan for a good long while.

    I think I actually cried a little bit when I found out. I’ve been watching reruns of Golden Girls since… ever, and it’s kinda weird being affected by the death of a person you never met.

    Also, Betty White cannot die, it is a scientific impossibility.

      Sadly Betty is now the only one left. Bea left us in 09, and then Rue in 2010, ironic that Betty, the oldest is still going strong.
