I admired Valerie Harper from the very first time I saw her on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. She usually made me laugh more than Mary and it's little wonder she won 3 Emmy Awards for her role as Mary Richard's endearing and amusing neighbour.
Her sitcom Rhoda remains one of my all-time favourites and I eagerly bought each season when it became available on DVD, a collection that I'll treasure even more now.
Valerie was brave and courageous. She lived with cancer since 2009... and I mean she really lived each and every moment, she was an inspiration to many.
Although I obviously never met her, somehow it feels like I’ve lost a good friend. It's strange how she was able to make us feel that way.

The episode “Rhoda’s wedding” was one of the most watched TV shows of all time and it still makes us laugh to this very day.
