Anna Marie Duke (1946-2016)

Today we lost someone authentic and great. Patty Duke, 69, was way more than an Oscar winner, television icon and child film star. Gifted, hardworking, prolific, smart, tough, brave. First-rate stage and movie actress her whole life. She could sing, too. Survivor, endurer, winner. Real class with no apologies. And too young. This news bothered me.
