We lost a highlander today. That was my second reaction when I saw the news from TMZ. First reaction was that this wasn't true. Sadly it is. She passed away just before 9:30am in her home on Friday, December 31st, just a few weeks before her 100th birthday on January 17th.

She did it all, television, film, writing, radio, conventions, comedy, drama, hosting. There will never be anyone quite like her, starting her career all the way back in the late 1930's. Let's be grateful that she gave us so much joy and laughter through out her life. More details as they develop.
