Majel Barrett Rodenberry passes away…

God Bless her, our prayers are with her son Rod and the friends and family. She brought much laughter and entertainment to so many people. She was an incredible inspiration to Gene and to writers and producers and fans as well. A powerhouse of an individual, she will be sorely missed.

Majel brought tears of laughter to my eyes playing Lwaxana, she was a large part of the incredible success and the humor of ST:TNG…

My favorite Majel role was of course, the irrepressible  Lwaxana Troi of ST:TNG:

From Rod’s site:

Majel Barrett Roddenberry passed away this morning, December 18, 2008, at 12:27 AM in her Bel Air home. She died peacefully, in her sleep, and was surrounded by family and loved ones.

“My mother truly acknowledged and appreciated the fact that Star Trek fans played a vital role in keeping the Roddenberry dream alive for the past 42 years. It was her love for the fans, and their love in return, that kept her going for so long after my father passed away.” – Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, Jr.
