With the departure of Ricky Paull Goldin imminent, Guiding Light costar Beth Ehlers has written the following email to her fans:
How can we say goodbye to Ricky Paull Goldin?? I know for all of you the idea of Guiding Light without "GUS" is unimaginable. For me the idea of "Harley" without "Gus" is unimaginable! 2008 was supposed to be the year of their reconciliation.
Ricky and I both anticipated those scenes, to finally get the opportunity to fall in love again... for all of you. Obviously, that won't happen now. And it's a tragedy. Please know that I am as saddened, as devastated as all of you. He isn't just the love of Harley's life.
He is my best friend. Please send good wishes his way! And maybe in the future, who knows . . . maybe these two people will meet again.
I can only hope . . .
All my love,
