We’re all mourning the loss of the wonderful Florence Henderson, aka the original Carol Brady. Henderson passed away at age 82 in Los Angeles after suffering heart failure.

We were moved recently to hear according to Susan Olsen, aka Cindy Brady, Florence Henderson really did feel like Olsen’s mom. As Olsen told People:

In the tradition of good moms, Henderson gave Olsen some A+ advice.

And, as it turned out, Florence Henderson’s advice ended up coming in super-handy.

Eep! Florence Henderson, your advice is all of a sudden SUPER relevant!! And lady knew it, too.

It SHOULD be your mom (or your mom-like figure) who teaches you essential makeup advice.

We love hearing these wonderful stories about this great lady and we will miss the wonderful Florence Henderson very much.
