God bless you Georgia!” tweeted Patricia Heaton, who worked with the late Mary Tyler Moore Show star on Everybody Loves Raymond. “One of my favorite episodes was when Robert catches Pat smoking – she was just brilliant!” Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal also paid tribute, tweeting: “To our dear sweet friend, we’ll love and miss you and your brilliant talent always.” Betty White released a statement on her former Mary Tyler Moore co-star, whom she reunited with on Hot in Cleveland: “Georgia was one of a kind and the absolute best."
