Another Great Loss to the Soap World

According to Superposter's site, Eileen Herlie passed away today.

I am sitting here in total stun - first from Irene Dailey's passing, and now this incredible loss. Myrtle Fargate has been such an important part of the All My Children canvas for so many years now. Even in her later years, Myrtle's appearances were always warm, welcoming, and with the same fire in her eyes as she had twenty-five years ago.

The soap world has lost so many greats this year, but this one has really left me stunned, especially since I've been gearing myself up to face the tears and tragedy that will likely take place during next week's Pine Valley tornado. I can honestly say, my potential enjoyment of those episodes is tainted, knowing Myrtle has left the Kane Women, and our television screens, forever.

She will be sorely missed.
