kalalanekent: (Lois :: Thoughtful)
I want to write up something beautiful and grand, but it hurts my heart so much that I just...

Nothing is adequate.

The level of loss to my heart is not something I can explain.

The words are ash.

Early Monday morning, around 3:30 in the morning, I lost my oldest. Vixen Sionnach was 11 and the very first pup that was ever mine. I can't have kids; there's not even the possibility. But this one...

I just can't explain how much she meant to me and my life as a whole.

She was a stray when she wandered into my life and she was my sweet, wonderful, fascinating daughter when she slipped away like the lady she was.

She'll always be with me, but I just need time to heal for the hole left behind.

I'm still at a loss about this. I saw The Outsiders as a teenager in school, my mom, my sisters, and I watched Ghost and Dirty Dancing together countless times, and he's always been a family favorite. It was heartbreaking to have read this fifteen minutes ago.

Rest now, Patrick. You've earned it. And watch out for my Nana. You may just get a kiss on the way in the gates. You were her favorite modern actor behind Richard Gere. :D

But I watched The Golden Girls with my grandmother throughout my childhood and into my teenage years. Now that she's gone, they're still a link to those old days. Of all of them, Sophia Petrillo was my favorite. Estelle Getty used to make me laugh until I cried. I can only hope to grow older like her. It's a shame that she wasn't recognized as the hilarious actress she was. When I hear this morning that she had passed away, it was a little bit of a blow. Another little memory gone. She had been ill for a while now, but still. 

Good night, Estelle, and God bless. Those of us that grew up with you will never forget.

See if this brings back any memories (gacked from Wiki):

Due to Sophia's Sicilian descent, there are regular hints in the series that she and her family have some mafia connections; she has made reference to several vendettas. It is even hinted that Sophia herself has done mob work; she once stated that no one in her family had "ever left a body to be found". In one episode Sophia asks Dorothy the first thing she told her to tell her to any kids if they bothered her the first day of kindergarden, Dorothy replys' "Yes 'Say one mean thing to me and my mother can have you wiped out with one phone call.'" Sophia states that she had lived through "two World Wars, fifteen vendettas, four operations, and two Darrins on Bewitched". She (almost) revealed in one episode that she knew what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.

Sophia is best known for her wise cracks and brazen remarks, often commenting on Dorothy's lack of love life; Blanche's promiscuity; and Rose's stupidity. However, despite her constant wise-cracking of the other women, she is shown to care for and love them all deeply; she even sees Rose and Blanche as surrogate daughters, loving them almost as much as she loves Dorothy. The other women usually seek Sophia for advice, which Sophia is all too willing to share, usually beginning with her catchphrase, "Picture it…" That phrase may be a family trait, as both her sister, Angela, and her brother, Angelo, have used the same phrase when telling stories in very similar fashions, and (in a flashback) Sophia's own mother also began to tell a story in this way. Sophia often stretched the truth, or completely fabricated the events of the stories, in order to make her point - something which Dorothy often calls Sophia out on, and Sophia usually either vehemently denies lying, or defends it with lines such as "I'm old, I'm supposed to be colorful".
