She was THE BEST!
We always said that we changed each other's lives for the better.
The Mary Tyler Moore Show co-star Gavin MacLeod remembered Moore with the following statement:
"A line from our theme song was "Love is all around", and that's what it was for 5 days a week for seven years straight on the Mary Tyler Moore set.
It was all because of Mary! She was professional; she was extremely creative with a terrific sense of humor and a gifted actress. She set a pace for all of us to follow.
So I consider those seven years working with this very special person as a gift from God. It goes with out saying what a wonderful loving and caring person she was to everyone who worked on the show. Mary was America's sweetheart and she was mine also. I was the luckiest guy in the world just sitting next to her and looking at her beautiful face...and legs!
One of my favorite shows was when Murray turned 40 years old and woke up thinking he was in love with Mary...but "Chuckles Bites The Dust" remains one of the classic comedy episodes of all time.
Today, "sadness is all around" for all of us and I will miss Mary...deeply."
A great lady I loved and owe so much to has left us. I will miss her. I will never be able to repay her for the blessings that she gave me.— Ed Asner (@TheOnlyEdAsner) January 25, 2017
Another The Mary Tyler Moore Show co-star, Cloris Leachman, remembered Moore with the following statement:
"My heart goes out to her husband, Robert - he was never more than a touch away from her. The picture that we all have of her, that's how she was - sweet, kind, so tender, so delicate. She was America's sweetheart. Valerie and I always had to rehearse and rehearse, to work things through but Mary was always ready to go, thoroughly prepared. The last time I saw her was our 'Hot In Cleveland' reunion. I had a feeling I wouldn't see her again. If I could see her one last time I'd hold her in my arms and say, 'We love you.'"
