Thanks to Lynn Liccardo for mentioning this clip to me – it’s a recent post by Michael Fairman, a well-known soap journalist.
This is, shall we say, the expanded remix of what Fairman produced as a memorial tribute for Agnes Nixon at this year’s Daytime Emmys.
It’s quite moving to see so many people get so emotional about Agnes and, really, about the passing of an era.
It’s a lovely clip. It gets a bit syrupy at the end – how very daytime! – but much of the clip has some very moving emotions and reactions, real and authentic words from many of the people who loved Agnes Nixon and owed her a debt of gratitude.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Fairman years ago, on that trip where Guiding Light invited a number of bloggers to see the new production model and somehow decided to invite me. Really nice work, Michael.
