Penny became a household name owing to her role in the long-running sitcom Laverne & Shirley. But Marshall was much more than just an actress. She directed several episodes of the show and proved she's great behind the camera, with such acclaimed movies as Big (1988), Awakenings (1990), and A League Of Their Own (1992).

The news of Penny's passing hurt many people, but one of them was especially devastated to realize she was gone.

A loving tribute from an ex-husband

Famous director and actor Rob Reiner, who was Penny Marshall's second husband, was absolutely heartbroken about her death and took to Twitter to express his grief.

At first, he barely had any words, but then he shared his warm memories about his beloved former wife. We just can feel the pain behind his tribute.

Even though Reiner and Marshall divorced in 1981 after 10 years of marriage, they remained friends and supported each other professionally.
