Iconic actress Mary Tyler Moore died one year ago Thursday at the age of 80.
Besides for her acting and producing work, Moore was also a passionate advocate for diabetes research, as she suffered from type 1 diabetes.
In the 1970s, she created one of TV's first career-woman sitcom heroines in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."
"There are no words. She was THE BEST! We always said that we changed each other's lives for the better," her TV husband Dick Van Dyke said of her death.
She wed her real life love, Dr. Robert Levine, who was 17 years her junior, in 1983.
"I can’t believe she is gone. Mary was my life, my light, my love," he said of her death.
