Shelley Morrison's Will & Grace castmates — said to be warring amongst themselves — were united in their grief over the loss of the woman who brought Rosario to life.
Megan Mullally, who worked with her the most closely, posted:

Sean Hayes, whose character Jack married Rosario, wrote:
Such sad news. Our beloved Shelley Morrison passed away today. She was absolutely hilarious and had the biggest heart. She was a part of our Will and Grace family and will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to her entire family. ❤️
As for Will and Grace themselves, Eric McCormack wrote:
Shelley was a beautiful soul & a wonderful actor. Her work as Rosario, season after season, was as nuanced and real as it was hysterical. She will be missed by everyone at #WillandGrace, she’s a huge part of it. Sending so much love to Walter and Shelley’s whole family.
... and Debra Messing posted:
Oh, Shelley... what a loss. Our dear Rosario has passed on. Shelley had a career that spanned decades, but she will always be our dear Rosie. She was a kind soul with a huge heart and always had a smile on her face. All my love to Walter and the entire family. #shelleymorrison
Morrison died Sunday of heart failure at 83.
