RIP, Aunt Hetty. Say hi to Matthew and Marilla for me!

I am a huge fan of all things Lucy Maud Montgomery and Road to Avonlea was my favourite show during my childhood - from age nine to sixteen, I never missed a single episode.

I used to see Jackie Burroughs in downtown Toronto every now and then and would marvel at how different she looked out of period costume! Her passing is a great loss to the Canadian acting community. May she rest in peace.

She was also brilliant in More/Further Tales of the City.

What a loss indeed!

I was just thinking of her the other day, when I watched a bizarre Canadian movie (Last Night) in which she played a cameo role.

RIP Jackie.:(

Wow, such a loss. Road to Avonlea was pretty much what our family did Sunday nights for a lot of years.

Indeed - dear old Mother Mucca. RIP.
