You were always there for me when I was down. We spent many a night alone, sitting around the kitchen table. Laughing and eating cheesecake. Defying slut-shaming and being ahead of our time. You got me through some lonely times and some trying times. I will always miss you, Eddi-Rue. You're probably up in heaven, dancing the jitterbug and cutting up with Bea and Estelle.
Goodbye, old friend. I'll always think of you and smile. You'll live on in my The Golden Girls DVDs.
