This woman has literally given us more than she will ever know, me in particular. All in the Family remains my number one sitcom of all time (Golden Girls number 2 and Roseanne number 3) for soooo many reasons. Breaking down barriers, calling attention to bigotry, no holds barred humor and ballsy dialogue just to name a few. Norman Lear was a freakin’ genius and it shows in his shows and his casting. Jean Stapleton as Edith Bunker was a dingbat with more depth than anyone else has yet to portray on television. Her presence lit up the screen. She died on Friday of natural causes at 90 years old. I will always love you, Edith Bunker.
