    My husband and I when we first got together would watch The Jeffersons every night at 10:00pm, laying on the couch rubbing feet :-) Great memories of that show.

    I grew up watching the Jeffersons and was sad to hear of his passing. Someone said it best though when they said ” he is now in the ultimate deluxe apartment in the sky”.

    :( Sad. The Jeffersons was a little before my time, but I remember watching reruns of it as a kid. Now “Movin’ on Up” is going to be in my head all day!
