    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.

    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.
