Join us in extending our sincere sympathies to Eden McCoy, the actress who plays Joshlyn in GENERAL HOSPITAL, who recently revealed that her mother, Natasha, passed away after a valiant fight with cancer.
McCoy shared a picture of her daughter Natasha from their most recent mother-daughter vacation, beaming broadly with the Eiffel Tower in the backdrop, along with a handwritten list of her top 20 mother-loves on Instagram to go along with the heartfelt dedication she wrote.
“It seems strange and almost theatrical to share something so intimate on the most impersonal platform, but a lot of people who knew both my mother and me were unaware of the situation, and this is the simplest way to inform everyone,” the GH actress said. They are also entitled to grieve and let go of her in any manner they see fit. My mother has been physically absent from us for the past two and a half years after a fierce struggle with cancer.
Despite acknowledging that she struggled to find the right words to express Natasha, McCoy did a wonderful job in her homage. She said, “I don’t know what to say other than she was, is, and will be the best thing I have ever known.” “She took me with her when she left, and she is responsible for every positive aspect of me.”
With the death of her mother, McCoy has also learned that nothing is guaranteed. “There is nothing at all that is promised, if I may convey anything to everyone who is reading. In actuality, we owe no one anything. Do everything as if it’s your last time, as my mother would say, because life can truly change in an instant.
Her biggest worry, McCoy continued, has always been losing her mother. As humans, we have a tendency to believe that nothing bad can ever happen to us. Regretfully, it can and occasionally does. For an additional minute with her, I would stop at nothing. Not only was I fortunate to know my mother, but we were even closer than we might have been.
The 20-year-old is thankful for her time with her mother and their unique bond, even though she knows that living without Natasha will be challenging for the rest of her life. “Mom, even though I wanted a lot more time with you than I really got, the time we did spend together wasn’t insufficient. The young celebrity said, “I’m sorry I can’t come with you, but I have to think that wherever you’re going, it will be a magical experience.” “I only hope we get to see each other again. I will carry you forever, just like you carried me for nine months. I notice you all the time.
During this trying time, our thoughts are with McCoy and her family.
