Marcia Wallace (1942-2013)

Meeting Marcia Wallace was one of the most cherished memories of my life. Chatting with her about being "Carol" on THE BOB NEWHART SHOW and listening to her hysterical stories about working with the other panelists on THE MATCH GAME. I was amazed how down-to-earth this woman was. She could have been anybody's older sister, mom, next door neighbor or just a friendly person you meet at the supermarket, but she was a humble, riotously funny and lovely showbiz survivor who serves as an inspiration to us all. I will miss her, but will be forever grateful that our paths crossed and I was able to be in her presence on a few occasions. Goodnight, Carol Kester, Edna Krabappel and Marcia Wallace. We love you.
