Early last month,  Daytime Emmy Award winning writer for B&B and Y&R Jerry Birn,  passed away  in his sleep. Patty Weaver (Gina, Y&R), his wife, was by his side at the time of his death on what was their 15th wedding anniversary. He was 86 years old.   At that time no immediate plans for his memorial service had been planned, but we learned that over this past weekend, friends, colleagues and family gathered for an amazing tribute and memorial service  to this legendary man.   Y&R’s Doug Davidson (Paul) was one of four people to eulogize Jerry and gave a wonderful speech.  Attendees included: B&B’s head writer and executive producer Brad Bell,former Y&R star Victoria Rowel,l and current Y&R veteran,  Melody Thomas Scott.  Those were just a few names  among many, many others from daytime, who paid their tributes to this beloved creator in the soap world.   Our thoughts and prayers are with Patty and the Birn family through this difficult time.

“The Young and the Restless” needs to get more grounded. I am ready for Victor to return and take Genoa City by storm. I know he has had time to plan out his revenge and Jack and Adam are at the top of the list. Victor should have let Adam rot in prison. He is so devious and manipulative and Sharon is a Fool.
