I admire Kristy McNichol. I grew up watching her and miss her. I remember cutting school with my friends so go home and watch Little Darlings, was an awesome movie then and still is today. I know she is taking care of herself which is great but the selfish side of me would love to see her again. God bless you Kristy.
