Just saw her movie Frisco Jenny. Very good movie. She was a great actress. Saw it on TCM. Really enjoyed it. I hope she is resting with God.

You are one of the classiest actresses I ever saw. You simply don't find people like you these days. Thank you for all the wonderful performances. God bless you. Rest in peace. You will never be forgotten and your work is timeless.
