Linda: Listen, let's talk
about something serious.
Nancy: Yes, yes.
Linda: This last week, Anna Lee passed away. How- how has that been at the
show? I mean, it must have been devastating.
Nancy: You know what? Strangely enough, it's not devastating.
Linda: It's not? [Two pics of Anna Lee shown here]
Nancy: Uh, it's celebratory. Because number 1 she lived such a beautiful life
and she- she, ya know, passed away so peacefully and so beautifully, as she is,
and so gracefully, and that is how I would describe her. So I think people are
really sad that they won't see her here anymore but there- they- there.. it's-
it's- we're- we're so happy for her that she's had such a beautiful life.

Linda: Good luck tonight, Nance.
Nancy: She is- and I know she'll just leave the best memories for us and we
will miss her just terribly.
Linda (giving her a hug): That's so sweet. Love you. (gives her a kiss)
Nancy: Love you too.
Linda: I'll see you inside. Go, Go have fun.
