Bea Arthur(1922-2009)

I was saddened to hear that Bea Arthur has died, aged 86. I knew her, like a lot of people, from the great 80's show, The Golden Girls. She had some great lines in that show as the divorced Dorothy Zbornak who was living with her mother, Sophia (Estelle Getty who died last July aged 85), Rose(Betty White) and the horny Blanche (Rue McClanahan). This was a great show and Bea played her character perfectly. She was the less attractive of the girls in the show, but she was always funny and she was well-able to deal with Sophia's sarcasm. I will always remember her and Estelle Getty from that classic show and I am sure that most people will too. She will be missed...
