Florence Henderson passed away from heart failure at the age of 82 on Thursday, but her memory will never be forgotten. The legendary actress is best known for her role as Carol Brady in The Brady Bunch, and since her death, her TV family has been speaking out about just how much she meant to them. Barry Williams, who played the oldest Brady son, Greg, on the hit show, told the New York Daily News on Friday, "I have not had many people this close to me pass. I would go to her sometimes when I was struggling with issues. [She was] very wise, worldly and helpful." Mike Lookinland, who played the youngest brother, Bobby, told the New York Daily News, "I'm still shocked and amazed. She was the kind of person that is just great to be around. Just to be in the same room with her was a pleasure. You can't say that about most people." Christopher Knight, who played middle son Peter, shared a photo of him and Florence on Twitter with a touching message:
