Marlena and Belle-Mother and Daughter

I am watching the Isabella cancer storyline from 1992 and it was very well written and executed. They just don't write stories like they used to. I found this particular clip to be somewhat bittersweet. I loved how close Marlena and Isabella were. That's why the whole "Marlena jealous of Isabella" storyline during Langan's tenure was ridiculous and not true to history at all! Marlena loved Isabella and never had a reason to be jealous of her. John loved Isabella and she made him happy. As much of a die hard J&M fan I am, I can't help but truly be sad over Isabella dying. It was very tragic. But with her death came the part where Marlena helps John through his grief and their feelings for one another resurface. I also loved how Marlena was there for John while Isabella was sick before she died and after she died. I mean Marlena named she and John's daughter Belle after her, when Roman was still believed to be her father. And Marlena helped raise John and Isabella's son, Brady. She raised him and loved him as her own. That doesn't sound like hate or jealousy to me. ^o) Enjoy! :biggrin:

The Marlena/Isabella scene starts at 8:25. I will admit I cried. :'(

Here is a continuation of that scene between Marlena and Isabella.
