“I wanna be loved by you just you and nobody else but you. I wanna be loved by you alone.”

She’s the matriarch on "The Brady Bunch", but she could also sing. She was a Broadway sensation. We're back now on this Friday morning, remembering America's TV mom, "Brady Bunch" matriarch Florence Henderson passing away at the age of 82 years old. From the Broadway stage to starring in a television classic, spending more than six decades in the spotlight. "People" magazine's Kate Coyne joins us now. Kate, Good morning to you.

Hi.

Nice to see you again. So we all remember watching Carol Brady. What impact do you think that she’s gonna have on all of us? I love that quote: “She said she was the mom that so many of us wanted, the mom that she wanted.”

Absolutely. And I think you'll hear a lot today in discussions about her that she was America's mom and she really was. Certainly for a generation for my generation if you're talking about the 1970s, you know, early '80s, and a period in which there wasn't a ton of stability. A lot of, you know, people were growing up with divorced parents or what have you. Yeah, she was really a symbol for the sort of perfect mother. And actually don't forget a kind of blended family mother too, you know, she had the three girls, Mike Brady had the three boys and they kind of came together as one perfect family, and she was the perfect mom. She was somebody who every kid kind of wished they had a little bit of at home.

She did say one thing in an interview with Barbara Walters in 2012. Said she wished Carol Brady had a job. Why do you think that was so important to her so long ago?

Florence was actually a very, very modern woman. She was very ambitious. She very successful. I mean she herself had carved out a career that spanned well beyond Brady Bunch. She was as you said, you know, a Broadway performer beforehand, tremendous singing talent and she made sure she stayed relevant. She had that drive, such a drive that she was at the finale of "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday night. Everybody saw her in the audience, so it was really unthinkable that light could go out so suddenly. She was very, very driven.

Can you briefly tell us why she had such a profound impact on Hollywood? You see so many stars, social media flooded now with tributes.

I think she was such a class act. You know, she personified a sort of grace and dignity and loveliness that you don't necessarily get all that often these days. She was somebody who everybody, you know, wanted to be a little bit like and if not like, then be able to call mom. I think Maureen Mccormick, you know, the bond that they still continued to share all those years later really exemplifies that.

She really was the stabilizing force for so many of us. Kate, thank you.
