By Layne Weiss     Nov 4, 2013 in Entertainment
Sunday's episode of "The Simpsons" began with Bart standing at the blackboard reading the words, "We'll Really Miss You Mrs. K."
This was a tribute message to actress Marcia Wallace, who died October 25 due to complications from pneumonia. Marcia was the voice of school teacher Edna Krabappel.
In 1992, she won an Emmy for he work on The Simpsons.
Sunday's new episode was preceded by a rerun of the 2011 episode "The Ned-liest Catch" in which Edna Krabappel begins dating Ned Flanders, Entertainment Weekly reports.
. Fox had originally planned to air the episode "Bart the Lover," but couldn't due to "technical issues."
After the rerun, Fox aired a new episode of The Simpsons called “Four Regrettings and a Funeral." The funeral wasn't for Mrs. Krabappel, but for a guy named Chip Davis. The show, which hasn't yet revealed how it will retire Marcia Wallace's character, paid tribute to her with the simple sentence "We'll really miss you Mrs. K," and just before the credits rolled, the show closed with this touching moment in memory of the late actress.
