When I saw That Evening Sun Thursday night, I thought about how beautiful Dixie Carter still is. She was my favorite the few times I watched Designing Women, and I always thought it a pity that I didn't see her in more stuff. I thought to myself, "Self, when you get to H'wood, you need to find a part for that Dixie Carter."
Too late, though. Just three hours ago came news that Dixie Carter passed away at the age of 70, an age that seems far too young. She is survived by her husband, Hal Holbrook.
So raise a glass to Dixie Carter, a true Southern belle: classy, funny, born in Tennessee. You'll be sorely missed, but you'll always be remembered.
