Estelle Getty, the small but terrific and feisty Emmy award-winning actress who played the immortal character of Sophia Petrillo on the hilarious TV comedy The Golden Girls, is dead after a lengthy Alzheimer's-type illness. A show I loved watching on Saturday nights during my teen years, Estelle will be missed, but looking at the comments from many on the Internet regarding her passing, she is universally and unconditionally adored. This my friends, is having lived an awesome life:

Awe, this makes me sad. She was my favorite golden girl. I almost cried when I found out.

It really is sad to see those who have touched our, and many others lives in a positive way pass on. Shwe and her comedy will be missed.
