So very sad to hear the news that Ms. Sada Thompson had passed away. She was truly one of the great actress' of her era. I asked for episodes of "Family" for my Christmas a couple of years ago. I watched those episodes during the 70's when they were on & wished that I had lived in the Lawrence house. She will be missed by many, but heaven has truly been blessed by Sada's loving smile. Thank you for sharing your talent with us & making us feel alittle warmer inside & letting us feel that we were apart of your T.V. family. Say hello to James (Doug Lawrence).
