Awwww. She did have long and wonderful life. Still, I almost feel like I've lost my own Mommy all over again.

RIP Barbara/June.

from the wiki:

Billingsley spoofed her wholesome image with a brief appearance in the comedy Airplane! (1980), as a passenger who could "speak jive"...

...and she did that so well!

RIP

She was a lovely lady on screen and from all accounts, a lovely lady in her personal life.

And it was so great to see her "speak jive" on "Airplane". lol

She will stay alive in so many hearts.

Tony Dow is a little older than me and I had a crush on him. Very handsome guy. And Beaver of course was adorable.

I went to school with Eddie Haskell (Ken Osmond). He was such a cool kid way back in the day...never pretentious or the least bit "affected". Before he did "Leave It to Beaver", he had other TV parts.

He had a big mop of blond curls, and often wore a forest green thin-wale corduroy long-sleeved shirt. Sometimes I wish I didn't remember such details, but there you have it. ;-)

He became a cop with the LAPD, and more...

Ken Osmond


RIP, Barbara...Mother to Many

Mrs. Cleaver, you rocked. Loved watching the Beaver and Mrs. Cleaver. She
was the best mom.

You were charming.
Rest in Peace.
