"Georgia Engel was the sweetest, kindest, dearest woman. And crazy talented. I will miss her," said Hot in Cleveland star Valerie Bertinelli.

"I am in shock — Georgia was an absolute angel — so dear, so sweet, so talented. God bless you Georgia," tweeted Patricia Heaton, who co-stared with Engel in Everybody Loves Raymond.

"One of my favorite episodes was where Robert catches Pat smoking — she was just brilliant," Heaton later added.

"To our dear sweet friend, we'll love and miss you and your brilliant talent always," Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal said in a tweet.


"She could get a laugh on literally every line you gave her," he later told the New York Times. "I've never seen anything like it."

Engel passed away on Friday, April 12, at the age of 70. The cause of her death is currently unknown.
