    I would like to write that Estelle gave me many many times of laughter. The Golden Girls is one of my favorite old sitcoms ever. My mother and I spend many days watching them during a lengthy hospital stay I had. Estelle will be missed very much. May she be blessed and have peace in Heaven.

    Sincerely,
    Sandie
