    How thoughtful, and she left to an organization that might otherwise be overlooked.

    RIP Bea Arthur - what a beautiful thing to do...
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.

    Thank you for being a friend, Bea. (I couldn't resist - one of the best theme songs, ever.)

    Thank you, Bea. Thank you not only for the incredible gift that you gave, but also for doing the research to find a group that really needed it and would have been sentenced to further obscurity.
    You will be missed.
