Back on February 4th, Six-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Heather Tom (Katie, The Bold and the Beautiful) shared on Instagram that her beloved mother, Marie Tom had passed away.
At that time, Heather expressed: “At 12:20 am Sunday morning, my brother, David, my sister, Nicholle, and her all but adopted son, Michael, held my beautiful mother’s hand, kissed her face and whispered I love you as she passed from this world to the next. She was my biggest champion and my most important influence.”
Over this past weekend, many of Heather B&B and former Y&R castmates, attended a celebration in honor of the life of Marie Tom, and to support Heather during this difficult time. They included: Ashley Jones (Bridget, B&B), Jennifer Gareis (Donna, B&B), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, B&B), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Y&R) and Kate Linder (Esther, Y&R).
