OMG yes, sonniorsolita. Those scenes, from the point where Maureen reads Lillian’s letter, up through her death and funeral, and then afterward as Michelle tries to come to grips with the loss of her mother, have really stayed with me. Ellen Parker’s scenes as Maureen confronting Lillian and Ed, I remember particularly vividly.

Such a tearjerker of a storyline, yet just beautifully performed. And Rachel Miner was so good as little Michelle. I am in the same age range as she and Bryan Buffington so I was growing up right along with them while watching.

I love GL, one of my most favorites, even listened to it on the radio before it was on TV.How great the ladies look, especially Tina Sloan as Lillian Raines. I liked all the Michelles, hard to find a favorite.

But the real deal is that the move was not good for the overall canvas. Maureen had replaced Bert Bauer as the matriarch of the show so to kill off the character was a huge mistake. I remember being shocked when it played out on TV. Jill Farren Phelps should be ashamed for calling Ellen… Read more »
