“Doris Roberts had an energy and a spirit that amazed me. She never stopped,” Romano said in a statement. “Whether working professionally or with her many charities, or just nurturing and mentoring a green young comic trying to make it as an actor, she did everything with such a grand love for life and people and I will miss her dearly.”
“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Doris Roberts, an amazing lady and brilliant actor,” Garrett said in a statement. “Doris was vibrant and full of life both on and off the stage, and I am so grateful we shared so many wonderful memories. I will miss her greatly and will always remember her incredible kindness, humor, talent and heart.”
