AWESOME! Thus far one of the best articles written. I am so PROUD of you "Lee"! See, there I FINALLY called her "Lee" and NOT "Alverta"! :D You are definitely a mentor to so MANY folk. Who knew that a young girl from 143rd Street (Sugar Hill) would become so famous and accomplished so much. It still has NOT sunk in that you are no longer in our lives, only when I see these articles do I truly realize it IS true! Then I become sad! :'(

Some of the interesting tidbits include: * The Doctors did not start as a serial; it began as a "half-hour anthology series of medical dramas, set in the large metropolitan Hope Memorial Hospital, and with the four principals alternating daily in the lead role, according to NBC's original announcement.
