R.I.P Lily Munster

The beautiful Yvonne De Carlo, best known for playing Lily Munster on TV's The Munsters passed away yesterday at 84. Considered one of the world's great beauties in the 40's and 50's, De Carlo was still best known as Lily Munster, especially to a kid like me. I still go back and watch The Munsters from time to time. I love the sweetness of the show and of course, the humor. So rest in peace Lily, we'll miss you.

I was very sad to hear about her death. She's one of my childhood icons.

Yvonne De Carlo had quite a stream of lovers, from what I've heard, like Howard Hughes.

This made me so sad. I still want to be just like her.

I enjoyed the Munsters.

But I think I liked the Addams Family more.

Still, it's sad to think of these icons from our childhood passing on.

I loved the Adams family too. I think I grew up on the Adams' more than the Munsters. It wasn't until I was older that I appreciated the Munsters as much as I do now.

And it is sad to see these people pass on. Plus, I don't particularly like the reminder that I'm getting older either. ;)

I recall eagerly as a child waiting to watch the Munsters after school. She was a very enhanting lady.

Loved the Addams Family also. :o)

I spent many a hazy, gauzy day of youth watching such classics as 'The Munsters' and 'The Addams Family'...
