The cast and crew of GENERAL HOSPITAL gathered together to celebrate the late, great Emmy Award-winning makeup artist Donna Messina as executive producer Frank Valentini unveiled a new bench with a plaque dedicated to her memory. Sitting just outside of the set, it’s located in the exact place where Messina would enjoy her breaks — and fresh air and sunshine. Now her GH family will forever be able to touch the warmth that the beloved Messina radiated.
Take a look through the gallery below for photos from that special day and memories of their late friend.
For those interested in assisting in providing for the college education of Messina’s sons, Nick, Vito and Antonio, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) and Jane Elliot (ex-Tracy) have joined others in creating a GoFundMe page. “The GH family would like to honor our beloved Donna through this GoFundMe page,” the campaign states. “Her love for us was immeasurable, as ours is for her.”
