'Being fired is like being violated...'

Author: U.N. Owen from NYC

'Leave it to Murray to find a bright spot' -Sue Ann Nivens

Oh, how I cried.

We raced home to watch it (the original broadcast).

I've been a Mary fan since it began (I can EASILY beat Rosie - or ANYONE for that crown!).

With the end of Mary, a lot of us lost our 'best friends.'

I can't tell you how much - about life - I learned from this show.

It was never written down to the audience. It was a show that - gave women a strong voice, and, really was a show that many (Oprah…?!?!) used as a roll-model, for it's depiction of life.

Nothing extreme. Nothing exaggerated.

The acting was pitch-perfect. A huge part of the thanks goes to those behind the cameras: writers, camera, stage crew, and many, many more.

I don't think there's been a show since that ever came close to capturing what this show did.

This - the last episode of a seven year run - was a real tear-jerker, especially, on it's initial run (I'll explain later).

It was beautifully written. Not maudlin, but, very funny, and, yes - it also made what was happening - the leaving of OUR WJM crew - very heartfelt.

THe tears you see on the screen are real. They really did feel that way.

And we did too.

That initial last showing - the only time they broadcast it - the epilogue, where the entire cast came out for a final curtain call, was especially endearing.

In my mind, Mary, she's OK.

And, thanks for those seven years.
