RIP Estelle Getty

Although it was inevitable, it's sad to hear that Golden Girl Estelle Getty died today. She was a brilliant comic actress. I used to watch Golden Girls when I went home to my parents on weekends from SVA. Golden Girls was a funny show with television legends Bea Arthur, Betty White and Rue McClanahan. It was Estelle, though that that had the breakout role as Bea Arthur's mom Sophia. Her comic timing was perfect. The role was a much deserved reward after most of her career on stage.

She will be missed.
