"She's just one I could've spent more time with," shared Knight, on the verge of tears.
Henderson died from heart failure on Thursday, surrounded by her four children, her rep told Et. It's safe to say that over the years, Henderson remained America's favorite TV mom, but for Knight, she meant so much more.
"There was one show where we were in the backyard with our mitts and throwing the ball around, and she was dressed like she was ready to play with us, and I think it was at that point I thought she was really cool," Knight recalled. "She could be one of the guys and very much like mom
