While On The Subject Of AMC

 Actress Mary Fickett was the first actress to win a daytime EMMY for drama for her role of Ruth Martin in All My Children.

 Her and her character's husband Joe reminded me so much of my parents.  Her smile and his heavy brow.
 Mary had been on Broadway and in movies prior to playing Ruth on All My Children.  Here she is opposite Bing Crosby in the movie Man on Fire.
 A young Mary reminds me of Ellen Degeneres.
I don't understand why family would release a photo like this of their mother, bedridden and with Alzheimers in her final years.  I guess you can always count on your children to do the right thing.
