    I was so sad to hear about Maya Angelou passing. I read all of her autobiographies multiple times. She was an amazing and eloquent woman.

    I was just looking through some of the Facebook tributes to Maya Angelou, when I remembered that she wrote the forward to some of Mattie Stepanek's poetry books. I got chills and goosebumps realizing the two of them have been reunited ... Oh the wisdom that can come from that heavenly poetry!

    We've lost a national treasure. I was so saddened to hear of Miss Angelou's passing. May she rest in peace.

    I was obsessed at one point with the inaugural poem she wrote for Bill Clinton. I started memorizing it, but it's pretty long. She had so much dignity and strength. I was shocked to hear of her passing.
    Count your blessings!

    She was such a strong and wise woman. A teacher who taught so many women how to be strong during difficult times. I know she saved me and I will miss her. RIP to a truly great woman and may others continue to learn from you.

    There are no adequate words to express my sorrow.

    RIP, Miss Angelou.

    Wow.

    I grew up with the Bradys and Alice.

    88. What a long lifetime run she had.

    RIP, Ann.

    I knew her long before the Brady's. She was on a show called Love That Bob, which starred Robert Cummings. I was just a small child when it started, but it lasted for several years and I still remember it. Her character was a standout just like on Brady Bunch.

    Ann Davis was like a part of my family when I was a kid. I treasure those memories of the The Brady Bunch! RIP Alice. You brought so much laughter and joy to my life.
