|Erika Slezak in 1971, shortly after joining the cast of One Life to Live.|
"I am so terribly saddened by the death of Agnes Nixon," Slezak wrote. "She was more than a great writer, producer and boss, she was a warm, loving and wonderful woman with a truly delightful and somewhat wicked sense of humor. It was my very great privilege to have known her and to have worked for her."
Slezak credited Nixon with changing her life.
"When she hired me to play Viki on One Life To Live, she changed my life and my career and I will forever be grateful to her. I wish her peace and angels all around her. She deserves that!"
