Fans have been asked by the family of Rue McClanahan to pay their respects to the late Golden Girl, who sadly passed away early yesterday morning after she suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on Monday and then a massive stroke late Wednesday, on a new official Facebook tribute page … particularly because Rue asked that no funeral be held for her after her death. The family explains that there will be memorial services for Rue later in the Summer in both NYC and LA but, for now, fans are asked to share their love for Rue on this newly launched Facebook tribute page:
McClanahan requested that no funeral be held for her, but memorial services will be announced for later this summer in New York and Los Angeles, California, Lawrence said. Fans can pay their respects online, a family statement said. “Please join us in celebrating Rue’s amazing life” by visiting a memorial page established for her on Facebook, the family said.
This is what the Rue McClanahan Memorial Page at Facebook looks like …
… which you will find HERE. In lieu of a very public funeral, I think this is a great way for family, friends and fans of Rue McClanahan to not only share their grief but to share their fun, loving memories of Rue‘s amazing life! It’s still very sad to think that Rue is gone … but, I gotta say, reading thru the tribute messages on Facebook does seem to lessen the pain just a little.
