Actress Jean Stapleton, best known for her portrayal of Edith Bunker on "All in the Family", passed away at the age of 90 on  May 31, 2013.


Farewell, Ethel

Ethel passed away very suddenly from a massive stroke last Friday night, May 31, 2013. Fred and I are heartbroken and I don't understand what lesson I am to learn from this. I have decided to keep this blog open for the simple reason that this is still Fred and Ethel's house. Those of you who have a pet that you love and cherish, give them an extra hug and tell them you love them. They know what you mean! Do it today - tomorrow may be too late.
