I was honored to meet Faith at a 1994 filming of Murphy Brown. Yes, both Murphy & Maggie were
done on film, not videotape. My good friend, Gina Altizer had appeared on the series, and arranged for my mother and I to
be in the audience. Because of my wheelchair, I had to be on the floor. So, upon leaving, I almost literally bumped into Faith.
(I met series star, Candice Bergen under similar circumstances that same night.)She was just as kind as you would imagine...
and it was a dream to meet one of my favorite actresses. Although, Deena Croston, MB's audience co-ordinator at the time invited
us back "anytime", I never could have imagined that we would attend nearly every-other episode for the series final four seasons...and
then follow Faith to all but three episodes of Maggie Winters. I got to know Faith and her castmates, and had the opportunities
to meet other celebrities, such as George Clooney, Noah Wyle, Rosie O' Donnell, Rita Moreno, Michael Jeter Patrick Warburton,
David-James Elliot, and even brief encounters with Clint Eastwood and Eriq LaSalle while on the Warner Brothers and CBS studio
