What an incredibly sad day.

Anyone who is familiar with Hugh Hefner, Playboy, or even just The Girls Next Door, also knew about his very close friendship with his longtime secretary Mary O'Connor, who was frequently featured on the reality series and largely considered to be a part of his, ahem, 'unconventional' yet very loving family!

However, it's with a heavy heart that we must report that the woman who dedicated over 40 years the founder of the gentleman's magazine has passed on, leaving not only Hef devastated, but many of his current - and former - love interests with whom she cultivated very close relationships.

Hef took to Twitter last night announce the upsetting news:

And he was not alone.

His new wife, Crystal Harris, as well as his former girlfriends Holly Madison, Kendra Wilkinson, and Bridget Marquardt have all taken to the social networking site to share their grief and remember lovely Mary for the wonderful person that she was.

They shared:

We can't even imagine how difficult it must be to lose someone who was such a stable, nurturing force for so long as she was, and we truly cannot express our condolences enough to everyone who's life she touched for the better.

Our heart and prayers are with all of you during this enormously difficult time.

Stay strong, guys. We're sure it's what Mary would have wanted.
