    In the early 70s, Maude tackled some very controversial issues that really hadn't been addressed on tv -- abortion, alcoholism, suicide. The show was pulled by several stations for a time period. RIP.

    More importantly, she made people think. She was an amazing woman. I am very sad right now.

    Her interactions with Carroll O'Connor on All in the Family were classic stuff.

    She made me LOL too. She took on some pretty cutting-edge issues at the time. RIP.

    Truly a great actress. I am a bit younger so I remember her mainly on Golden Girls. Who ever thought a young male would be so taken by a show with 4 retired ladies! It was great. RIP.

    I'll always remember her for her role in The Star Wars Christmas Special...and the references to her nude pictures in Airheads.
