I was traveling yesterday, so didn't have the opportunity to share the sad news: Florence Henderson died on Thanksgiving Day at the age of 82. She died from heart failure. Her friends and family surrounded her bedside.
Henderson was one of my childhood heroes. She played Carol Brady on "The Brady Bunch," not to mention "The Brady Bunch Hour," "The Brady Brides," and "The Bradys." She also appeared in "The Brady Bunch Movie" as Grandma Brady.
I watched "The Brady Bunch" throughout my childhood. I daydreamed about playing with the Brady kids and living in the Brady home.
Florence Henderson's passing was like a gut-punch to me.
