Farewell to Agnes Nixon
Oh, the irony! I'm pretty sure Agnes would approve.
When I opened my Facebook page just now to say something in memory of the marvelous Agnes Nixon I found that I had typed a post regarding the anniversary of "All My Children's" final show on September 23 but had neglected to hit "Post."
So let me make this post a combined tribute to the show that meant so much to so many of you on which I gladly toiled for almost 25 years, and the incredible woman that created this daytime juggernaut.
Agnes Nixon was, to me, the epitome of class, erudition, and grace. Though tiny in stature, her creative genius filled her with a glow that fairly shown around her. She always had time for her actors, her "children," and truly loved them. She was tough and honest and I cherish every moment I ever spent in discussion with Agnes or just observing her as everyone in the room came to her as if to a most benign monarch. Agnes, you honored and delighted me every time we had anything to do with one another. You will be greatly missed. Walt Willey
Farewell to Larkin Malloy - Brotherly love for Jackson Montgomery!
Larkin Malloy welcomed me like a brother when I joined the cast in 1987. We worked together, did appearances together, partied together, vacationed together. He was an "actor's actor," spending many years teaching the craft, and a gentleman in the Old World style. We spent many hours together, both on set and off, and truly were "Irish brothers from another mother." Tommy, you will be missed. Love you, brother.

A personal note from Walt:
Here's my coverage of the speech (in part) that Susan Lucci gave to cast and crew at a luncheon she threw for all of us during the final days of All My Children. Susan is one of the most gracious people I have ever had the good fortune to work with...truly a classy girl, my Susan!
