    Rev. Andrew Greeley, priest and author, has died at 85. I remember reading some of his novels (they might even be here somewhere).

    I so loved her growing up. I remember the first time I saw her our of her Edith character... I thought she had such a "serious" and "grown up" voice.

    I heard this on my car radio a little while ago. She created such a lovely character in Edith. A huge gift to us all. Sending her on her way with love and gratitude!

    So sad to hear about Jean Stapleton. I grew up watching All in the Family. Edith Bunker was one of those iconic roles and Jean was wonderful in it.

    One of the saddest shows I can ever remember seeing was the episode of ALl In The Family where Edith died & Archie found one of her fluffy pink house slippers under the bed & lost it.

    RIP Dingbat!
