FOND MEMORIES

Lawrence posted several photos showing the late star and other actors in vintage props and scenes from earlier times. She emotionally wrote in her caption:

"So many great memories, so many years...sending much love to Sharon and his family. #goodbye #dearfriend …"

The photos included some of the star actress's fondest memories alongside cast members of CBS's "The Carol Burnett Show." Through it all, Waggoner presented a radiant smile that must have captivated fans in the '70s.

WAGGONER AND FELLOW STARS 

Before his milestone fame on "The Carol Burnett Show," the Hollywood legend debuted in "Gun Smoke" while going on to take on roles in series like "The Golden Girls," and "Charlie's Angel's" amongst others.

So far, Lyle isn't the only cast member of the acclaimed CBS show who passed on. Back in 2008, Harvey Korman died after suffering complications from an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Tim Conway also passed away last year due to hydrocephalus. Before his death, Conway underwent brain surgery in 2018. He is survived by his long-time spouse, Charlene, and seven children.

Stars like Carol Burnett, Betty White, Dick Van Dyke, and Vicki Lawrence are still alive and kicking it in Hollywood.
