Laverne & Shirley co-star Cindy Williams has commented about the passing of Penny Marshall. In a statement to the Today show, Williams said, “What an extraordinary loss. My good friend, Penny Marshall is gone — one in a million. Utterly unique, a truly great talent. And, oh what fun we had! Can’t describe how I’ll miss her.” Marshall and Williams starred in Laverne & Shirley from 1976 to 1983. At one point, the Happy Days spinoff was the number one television show in America. The two remained friends after the show was done.
