    From her website:

    To all of Estelle's Fans,

    Sadly, today July 22, 2008 at 5:35 a.m. Pacific Time, we said our last good-byes to our little friend Estelle, who passed away and made her journey to the great beyond. Although it was a trip that she never wanted to take, she went gracefully, in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her family and her very loving care-givers.

    Estelle's legacy will live on and on through the comedy and laughter she gave to us all, which will forever keep us laughing out loud.

    For us here, who have known and cared for her for so many years, we've lost our dear little friend who always kept us entertained by filling our days with joyful laughter. Estelle's fans across the globe have lost the feisty little lady known as Sophia Petrillo, whose quick wit, cutting remarks, and outrageous punch lines will forever be quoted and remembered.

    Estelle was a fighter. She always stood up for the underdogs, fought for equality for all, and always pictured a world filled with "Love and Laughter" --her most favorite catch phrase.

    Picture this... July, 2008 - a hilariously funny woman who's entertained us for years, passes away in her home just short of her 85th birthday. An Emmy winning wonder who not only was a feisty spit-fire on one of the greatest sitcoms of all time, but was also an accomplished actress on the big screen. This woman, Estelle Getty, who will forever be known as the comedic genius behind Sophia Petrillo, will be missed greatly.

    Thank God for reruns!

    I find it very inspirational that she didn't get her big break (golden girls)until she was 60 or so. Keep chasing your dreams my friends...
