as often with the case of those who did not have something they attempt to demolish it for all of those who did. jealousy? envy? hatred? contempt? i do not know. ms. russell, june cleaver was a character. Ms. Barbara Billingsley was a classy lady. why take this moment of mourning for so many and turn it into a soap box for your own deep seated hostilities and hatred and issues with your own parents. in other words: stop hatin' !

Tony Dow released the following statement in reaction to Barbara’s passing:

America’s favorite mother is now gone. I feel very fortunate to have been her ‘son.’ We were wonderful friends and I will miss her very much. My deepest sympathies to her sons, Glenn and Drew, and her entire family,” he said.

#12 DeeDee. I was raised in the 40's and 50's and she would have fit right in where I'm from. I think that's why I liked the show so much. I could relate to the family. It was a great way to grow up. I'm sorry for you that you didn't have that.
