    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...

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

    You were charming.
    Rest in Peace.
