RIP, Bonnie Franklin
Growing up one of my favorite sitcoms was "One Day At A Time". I loved the show and I totally related to it. My older sister was the rebel. She was always outspoken and got into trouble just like, Julie. She also started doing drugs a little later on just like Mackenzie Phillips did. I was the squeaky clean Barbara to a "T". And my mom was a strong, independent woman who didn't take crap off anyone just like Ann Romano. When I love a show like that, the people who portrayed those characters always hold a special place for me so I was sad to hear of Bonnie's passing. RIP, Bonnie! Your work will live on in reruns of this great show but more importantly your memory will live on in the minds of those closest to you.
