It seems utterly impossible that I am typing these words, but the great Lisa Brown has died. She was 67 years old.
Her work on both As The World Turns and Guiding Light meant so much to me.
I logged into this WordPress account just now, using a password that includes the name of one of her characters.
Logging in and seeing, impossibly, eerily, that my most recent post was to say goodbye to Michael Tylo a few months ago. How can it be that we lost both of them?
I know she had her family, her grandkids, her beloved, beautiful dogs. I hope she was happy, and that she was not filled with pain, or that her passing ended that pain.
Part of me wants to write 4000 words, but I’m just so sad. I don’t know what else to say, but I honor her work and her life. Rest in peace, Lisa.
EDITED TO ADD: Jennifer Kathleen Gibbons has a heartfelt remembrance of Lisa and her work here.
