But what about the several weeks before he went to the hospital. Why aren’t there any more episodes for Kristoff? Was he fired or placed on recurring status by Y&R? EB (Victor, Y&R) stated Mal Young/Y&R was edging Kristoff off Y&R.

Did Y&R add to his depression? Was he let go?

I wouldn’t miss it. I was hoping we would get a few more episodes with him, one will have to do. This is so very heartbreaking all around. My heart goes out to all of family and friends. He was such a class act, gracious, funny and to think that smile and laugh we have all come to know and love so much is silenced and at rest is just so sad. I too lost my son, December 17, 2017. He was just 30 and left behind a 6 year old boy and a 9 year old daughter. I found… Read more »

Cora, I was planning to make a comment on Mr. St. John, giving my condolences. And I do that now, in reply to you. I will definitely be watching Wednesday’s episode as well as Friday’s episode. His untimely passing is a tragedy, particularly for his family, friends, and coworkers. Yet I read your comments, I was moved by them, and I feel compelled to offer you my condolences on the loss of your son at 30. I certainly don’t mean to be intrusive… You have articulately described your grief process, devastating as it is. You can relate to Mr. St.… Read more »

My condolences to you, Cora. Your beautifully written expression of sympathy for Kristoff St. John as you relate his to your own loss was very moving. I was just speaking of something similar today to a friend; that no matter how big a family or friends, how much love one has and feels, you can never replace one for the other. The loss of someone so loved leaves a gripping ache and longing…and a “vacancy”…a sorrow so deep that it physically hurts. I’m sure your other children understand your pain right now and know the depth of your love for… Read more »

Cora I too am sorry for your loss. I hope to not be intrusive but have you tried grief counselling or find a group who have gone through what your going through.

Sometimes it’s not that people are just depressed but they are grieving. God bless you.

Dear Michael Fairman: As us fans process the shock and grief, it suddenly occurred to me that I should offer you my condolences. I never met the but you met with with him many times. I believe you interviewed him numerous times throughout the years. He was a friend of yours. As you try to offer comfort to his fans, it might be that you need some comfort yourself! I am so sorry for your loss. One thing I have always appreciated about you is you give your heart and soul as a soap journalist. You have a lot of… Read more »

So, so sad watching Neil and his beloved son, Devon. I was wondering if all the pride and love he had to show his son and daughter Lily, ever since his son’s death, didn’t prolong and add to Kristoff’s pain and grief. The role as loving father, and grand-father to his children and grand-children would have done me in. Though not real, just saying the words and showing the emotion had to have been terribly hard and draining on some level. I so hope I am wrong. I can’t believe today, will be the last time to see that smile… Read more »

This is really sad! Not just for Y&R but for his family who has been through a lot the past few years. I just hope that he is finally at peace.
