Was she also in The Forsythe Saga, seen on Canasian TV in the early 70's?

I enjoyed every episode of "Family" because of SADA. I still remembered her name and that is not my strong suit. She's the greatest actress and deserved any and all awards she has received.

Sada is the most wonderful actress who portrays her characters in a deep insightful manner. As she has matured I want to be just like the warm loving mothers, grandmothers, sisters etc. that she portrays. She makes me feel like I want her to put her arms around me and tell me she knows all about life and everything is fine with the world because she has been there and knows all about it. She has had a wonderful career and I wish her well in the future.

I`m the biggest Sada Thompson fan, ever. I can`t get enough of her. I own all but 8 episodes of Family and watch them obsessively.

Sada Thompson went to high school with my father in Scotch Plains, NJ. He remembers seeing her in plays and stuff.

I just bought my girlfriend the first two season`s of `Family` on DVD and we`ve just fallen for the show all over again. We watched it when we were kids and just adored Sada Thompson then and still do!
