    Elly's gone to be with her critters now.

    Down to one surviving Clampett (Jethro) and one surviving Bodine (Jethrene). Long live Max Baer Jr.!

    I was thinking about you the other night, Elly May, when we found a possum in our garage on Christmas Eve.

    Rest in Peace.

    Yes, no way she will be forgotten from Beverly Hillbillies. I also remember her from the Twilight Zone episode The Eye of the Beholder. R.I.P. Donna
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    I enjoyed watching the Beverly Hillbillies as a kid, and I thought Elly May was so sweet, as she loved her critters so much.
    RIP beautiful lady, Donna Douglas!
    Thank you for being a part of my childhood!

We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.
