Picture it...Sicily, 1923
Well, it seems that the beloved Estelle Getty has died.
I knew that she had been very sick for several years and suffered from Lewy body dementia.
But, she will always be remembered for her hilarious portayal of Sophia on "The Golden Girls". Although she played the oldest character on the show, she was actually a year younger than Betty White and Bea Arthur (who played her daughter, Dorothy, on the show).
Thankfully, "Golden Girls" reruns all the time and the DVDs for each season are now available, so she will live on to entertain people all over the world for many years to come.
She will certainly be missed.
