Webster sent over these tributes by the cast of Carol Burnett Show who share their reflections on Phyllis Diller, who died earlier this week:

"Phyllis has been a dear friend for many years. She was a pioneer for women stand-up comedians. I was with her a few weeks ago, and she had me on the floor with a few choice jokes. Funny, charming and loving... I'll miss her." -- Carol Burnett

"Phyllis Diller came through a mine field of male comedians when she arrived on the comedy scene and she defused them all. She won her place in the Hall of Comedy as the First Lady. I will miss her." Tim Conway

"95 years old. Pretty damned incredible! She was one of the original pioneers in a truly male dominated industry. And yet, she was one of the nicest, kindest, funniest, sincerest women I have ever known. She is, and forever will be, a genuine, pivotal piece of comedy history. She had such a gentle, hysterical way of laughing at herself without ever making us feel uncomfortable about laughing with her. Study up youngsters! She was one of a kind!" Vicki Lawrence
