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.
