Goodbye Pauline

I'm heartbroken.
One of my favorite characters from EastEnders has died of cancer.
In real life, not just on the show.
Wendy Richard died last week of cancer.
She played Pauline Fowler on the show.
If you've never watched EastEnders, and I haven't in years, and I miss it so, you may remember her from the classic British sitcom Are You Being Served.
When we moved to London back in the early 90s, DH and I got hooked on EastEnders, and my primary memory of Pauline is of her stridently saying, "We're faaam-ly!"
Love that Pauline.
Here's her final scene from EastEnders:
