What do I think of the outpouring of love? It was totally deserved. I met him a couple of times FCW. He was sweet funny and everything you could hope for. A true classy man. Something a lot of others should emulate

John Ingle brought such class to the character of Edward. Regardless of what Edward did, you still loved him. The viewer could also tell that Mr. Ingle himself was a class act, and a very lovable, loving person. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends, and his grieving GH friends. I wish I could have known him.

I am sorry for the loss of Mr. John Ingle. The GH cast and crew have lost a great friend, idol and mentor. My heart goes out to all of them. Write down your fondest memories to keep them with you forever. GH must do some shows dedicated to him. Not with a million other story lines, but one dedicated to people talking about Edward and one of with that tied to flashbacks.

Can somebody get in touch with Robin Christopher (Skye) – i’d love to read a statement from her about her beloved colleague. She’s the Greta Garbo of daytime and doesn’t do any publicity or have a twitter, but right now she and Jane Elliot are the ones I’m thinking must be most distraught to lose their adored John. I feel that Robin shared a really special connection with John Ingle that was magical on screen. Loved their scenes together.

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
