I looked forward to watching you on Golden girls. You were blessed with real talent. So many great actors and golfers came out of TU. You and Tony Randall were always my favorites. RIP sweet Rue.

I do miss those wonderful Golden Grils. I miss them so very much.. She was very well as Blanch. What was very heartbroken was when Big Daddy call needed Her there by Him. She just said no. Just like my Sister . I miss my dear Father so much I'm so down every time I cry inside a lot. For Him. That's it there's something about my Sister but if I say some thing about her she will kill me. For real. I'm older then she is but she hard on meet. My other Sister takes her side my Sister in law takes her side as well they both don't want too help me. They both don't know what she rely is.

I loved Rue! I was fortunate enough to meet her in 2001, when she was on Broadway in "The Women." After connecting on the street I sent her a fan letter where she wrote back and asked me to meet her after a performance of "The Women". She was charming and I will always cherish my Blanch Devereaux kiss. John Joseph Strangi

Mrs. McClanahan, Even though you have been gone for almost 7 years, my Mom followed you in Sept of this same year, you were a brilliant performing actress. I still to this day am utterly amazed at your performance and incredible sense of humor on The Golden Girls plus beginning with Maude. I loved your character dearly and you still after all of these years of being gone, leave us laughing with tears in our eyes. I know you don't know my Mom, but I know you are both with the good Lord in Heaven resting in peace. God Bless Yoi for all the laughter and time out you gave from your own family just to make a living to entertain us all forever. Your legacy will forever remain timeless.

I love watching “The Golden Girls”. There was no single episode that wouldn't make me laugh. Her well – played character complemented all the others characters as well. It's very sad to know that she had to struggle with such an illness. She is asleep now, but her memory rest in God's hand. May God grants Mrs. Rue family the comfort and the strength they need to deal with her loss.

Where do I start. Talk about funny Blanch was it. I loved the character Mrs Rue played. I will agree with the person who said you will be missed but not forgotten. We look forward to the promise found at Isa 33:24" No resident will say I am sick." May the God of all comfort be with your family.
