I'm Very Sad!

One of my all time favorite shows was The Golden Girls. My favorite character was Blanche Devereaux. I liked her spunk and we shared the same first name, Blanche. Actress Rue McClanahan past away this thursday morning around 1am of a stroke. I will truly miss her.

That leaves only Betty White and I think she may have been the oldest one on the show.

Yes, I believe she is 83 years old. Look at her now back in the limelight.

I heard that on the news this afternoon. I love that show and she will be missed. And yes, Betty White is the last living Golden Girl.

I loved the Golden Girls and I loved each actress in every other role they played. I am sure Betty White is grieving her loss today as I have heard each of them say they were like a close knit family during and after the show's run. I will definitely miss Rue.
