It has been one month since Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) passed away, and his OLTL co-star Kathy Brier (Marcy) has shared on Facebook the touching eulogy that she delivered at his funeral.
"From the first moment Nathaniel and I caught each others' eyes on set, there was an instant connection," she recalls. "I felt as thought I had always known him somehow, a recollection of our souls.
"I was only supposed to be on OLTL for three episodes, but the chemistry between Nathaniel and I was undeniable," she adds. "The powers that be at OLTL quickly took notice and I was soon put on contract shortly after. Before we knew it, we were in the middle of one of the greatest love stories ever written for a soap opera.
"The real secret to the magic of our story was that as Marcie and Al were falling in love, so were Nathaniel and I. The love and respect between us naturally carried over onto the screen.
"There are no sufficient words to express the pain of his loss that I know is felt by so many," Brier says. "I take comfort in knowing that he is finally at peace and safe at the end of an epic journey, and I will be forever grateful that I got to go along for the ride."
