We Salute Mary Tyler Moore, a Most Excellent Woman
Even now, is my role model, and I've watched her since I was a toddler. She made the name "Laura" special to me as Laura Petrie. As Mary Richards, she gave us preteens, and teens, hope. Her life was perfect as she was. Even today, I study her clothes and wish they were mine. She had those beautiful eyes, and of course, that smile. She lived what Barbara Pym wrote about in her books, and she was a single woman with many things to love, and with more than a full life. Rest in peace, and when we see the stars shimmer tonight, we will know it was your famous smile that turned them on.
