LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The death of Golden Girls star Rue McClanahan has been a sad blow, but devoted fans can attempt to cope in a morbidly fascinating way.

Dearly Departed Tours in Los Angeles takes curious folks to the locations where some of Tinseltown's biggest names met the Grim Reaper.

With the recent death of McClanahan, company owner Scott Michaels says he'll be paying homage to the actress on his tours, who died this past Thursday (Jun. 3) at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Unfortunately, Michaels can't trek all the way over to New York, so he'll be stopping by Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. instead, which is where lots of other famous folks have died.

However, recently deceased celebs Dennis Hopper and Gary Coleman won't get the same honors since Hopper died in his home in Venice, California, which is 20 miles too far for the tour to drive by.

Coleman died in Utah, so that leaves him out too.

Regardless, Michaels says tourists can pay their respects to other dead celebrities on the trek, including Michael Jackson.
