Here’s a story about a lovely lady who made a big difference in the lives of her TV kids.
For years, Florence Henderson offered advice and delivered laughs on “The Brady Bunch.” On Thursday, the world said goodbye to the 82-year-old actress, and it’s clear that Henderson and her “Brady” castmates formed a real family during their time together.
Barry Williams, who played Greg on the show, tweeted that he was “deeply saddened” by the news of her death.
“Florence was one of the most gracious people I have ever known, Proud to call her Mom and life long friend,” wrote Williams.
Maureen McCormick, aka Marcia Brady, was with Henderson on the “Dancing with the Stars” set only days before her death.
“You are in my heart forever,” she tweeted, along with a photo of herself and Henderson at “DWTS.”
McCormick shared another post, writing, “Florence Henderson was a dear friend for so very many years & in my <3 forever.”
Actor Christopher Knight, who played Peter, also had a tribute for his TV mom. Knight called Henderson a “dear friend,” adding, “Privileged to have known her and the kindness of her heart.”
And that’s the way they all became a real Brady Bunch.
Rest in peace, Florence.
