    So sad, I didn't know she was diabetic. Terrible disease.

    I read her autobiography a few years ago. She was very honest and open, not afraid to talk about her mistakes and things she learned. Mostly, it was very funny. Though she liked to party, she worked very, very hard in her career. She was married to it, essentially. Very smart. Very close-knit family, too. In a tough business, she seemed like someone who could be trusted, like her brother.

    I still have a problem when I see someone like her being 75. It's hard to believe.

    The absolutely funniest episode of Laverne and Shirley is when they went to night school and Laverne accidentally dismantled the skeleton.

    Sad news. Very talented as an actor and director, A League Of Their Own is a fave of mine. RIP Penny.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    I thought that she would go before Carrie Fisher, due to her reported brain tumor. You never know.
