    This lady has been a HUGE star for more than fifty years. She has been affectionately called "Mom" for many, many years. REST IN PEACE, Mori-san.

    Is this all you have to say about her in the news????? What about an insight of her private life,, her children, who she married, etc....

    Very sad news. She will be missed by many, she was like a mother or grandmother to so many entertainers. I always admired how lively she was even in her late 80s, she was someone who really lived life to the full.
