Farewell Myrtle

Okay, so I know it's the holiday season and I know emotions can run hot and cold, but I've spent the last hour crying over the death of a fictional television character!

Myrtle Fargate was the shoulder everyone from the fictional town of Pine Valley cried on. Eileen Herlie joined the cast of All My Children in 1976 and she was a regular until her last episode on June 23, 2008. Herlie died on October 8, 2008.

On today's episode of All My Children, they had a grand farewell to Myrtle. Zach Slater names a room at the casino in honor, the "Fargate Carnival Room". Zach - my favorite character - is played by Thorsten Kaye. Hubba hubba!!

This is the only soap opera I watch, and I've been watching since 1976. I have to have my daily dose of Pine Valley.

"The angels are on your side."
These are the last words we hear Myrtle say, recorded from her last show, and repeated at the end of today's episode.
