GL CLASSIC MOMENT #54
Rick (Michael O'Leary) and Mel's (Yvonna Wright) courtship was truncated when his quickly weakening heart -- with no possibility of a donor -- seemed poised to give out. They wed with the groom in a wheelchair (above) and waited for the inevitable.
But, then a miracle happened! A heart became available for transplant!
Unfortunately, the Bauers' joy came as a result of Cassie's tragedy. It was her husband, Richard, whose death made Rick's recovery possible. (Reva pulled the plug on her comatose ex-husband-turned-brother-in-law at his request, then stood trial for the mercy killing).
