"Summertime meant trips to her Connecticut country home and ice cold cocktails in her Upper East Side Manhattan penthouse," Aspen wrote. "Like her memorable Christmases, Independence Day was a magical time. I remember the July 4 episode of Search for Tomorrow in 1986 with Mary's character, Jo, singing a duet with our pal Anita Gillette (Wilma) at the Liberty House's rooftop party. They hilariously belted out 'Friendship' from Anything Goes. I wish she'd gotten to sing at one of the Bauer Barbeques when she was on Guiding Light as Meta."
