    Shocking is the news that "Blanch" of "The Golden Girls" has passed away from a stroke. And that leaves one. That program was the best on television and its hard to believe that those days are over.

    Does that just leave Betty White?

    Yes, I believe so.

    Blanche was a riot. Her death is sad.

    She was a talented actress and that was one of my favorite shows. They melded together so good for that show.

    Years ago, they said that actually the youngest actress of the group was "Ma" and I believe that Betty White was the oldest.

    I liked the show too - well written for a mature audience.

    I read Rue's book. It was wonderful. She will be sorely missed. I have a 24 year old niece and she has all of the Golden Girls episodes on dvd.You can's get that kind of humor anymore. It's sad. :-(

    I have been watching it every night on WeTv when I can't sleep and just last week started recording them on my DVD if I miss them. Even the early shows are funny and witty.

    I loved the Golden Girls too. Especially the way they got along. It was fun to watch them mix and mingle. Especially Maude. LOL. I would love to have an all day marathon to watch.

    I watch the Golden Girls every week night, one of my favorite shows. I think Betty White is the only one remaining.

    I just saw that on the net. So sad to hear.
    We are loosing several actors/actresses in the last month.
    Art Linkletter, Gary Coleman, Dennis Hopper, Rue McClanahan. So sad to loose so many.

    Alot of us are close to the same age, and the icons we all either grew up with or "knew" in our younger years are disappearing. Oh Harvey Korman, Perry Como, ooo Anthony Quinn, among literally hundreds more are gone. We SHOULD feel greatful that we were around when they were (they had definitely given us hours of pleasure) but, to realize that we really can't share their acting. singing, or personality is quite sad.

    So sad. I watch the Golden Girls every evening when I am making dinner. I've seen every episode multiple times but still laugh each time. What an ensemble of talented women. She will be missed.

    This is the first I've heard of it. Yes, so sad!

    It wasn't Rue McClanahan's first stroke, though, was it?

    I hope Betty White will be with us for many more years to come.

    And it would be nice if someone would create another show or two about older characters, not another Golden Girls, but something equally good.
