Farewell, Dorothy

Bea Arthur's passing has been sad news this weekend, but she lived a long life and had a successful memorable career, so what else can we ask for? We tried to sing "Thank You For Being A Friend" at Karaoke on Saturday night, but they astonishingly didn't have it in the TV Themes section. Instead we dedicated God Bless The USA to her. It was very moving. Maybe you had to be there. Bea Arthur will always be remembered for her iconic roles as Maude and as Dorothy in Golden Girls, but I've had fun this weekend seeing a multitude of clips from her non-GG performances online. Below are a few clips that I think are amazing and highlight her range of comic genius and musicality. She was one of a kind. She will be missed, but she'll remain cherished for generations to come. Bea, if you threw a party and invitied everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift would be from me and you know what the card attached would say...
