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 myself swallowed up in my grief, all consumed. I had panic attacks daily for months. I couldn’t leave the house. I broke down constantly and I have thought about taking myself out of this world multiple times. Losing a child is incomparable to any loss one could ever experience. We have 6 children and 12 grandchildren, and the loss of one leaves a person feeling unbalanced. Like your anchor is not holding you anymore. You just don’t feel grounded at all. Then there is the shattered heart that never feels complete again. It’s odd how having so many children I love so very much cannot absorb the space one child had in your heart but rather the opposite seems to happen. That place in the heart for that one child, seems to expand and deepen leaving the biggest emptiest void where my love slips into and out of being. I love all my children and grands. I feel bad that the love I have for them feels like it’s draining away and I am still so consumed with grief and loss that I may not not get back to where I need to be with all of them. Kristoff is with Julian and I’m sure they are thrilled to be together again. I pray his family are not overwhelmed by grief the way I am. I wish I could be stronger.

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. John’s feelings over the loss of his son. Though not touched personally by such a loss, I have witnessed others close to me who have had to deal with such loss, and the repercussions have been significant. As we see, people can react differently to loss, grieving in their own time and in their own way.

But Cora, you are strong! The fact that you have remained strong is a tribute to you! You have survived the loss of your son and your “shattered heart.” I honestly can’t imagine what you’ve been through, but you are still here. You clearly love your family. Your children, grandchildren, and others continue to be your “anchors,” and they need you, as I’m sure you are their anchor. I hope you will reach out to your anchors when you feel down and need to talk. Best wishes for you, Friend!

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 them all. Allow yourself to grieve without worry or guilt about others; they have you and you them, always.

Being in pain and grieving has nothing to do with not being strong. It has to do with having a heart full of love and loss and sorrow. Let yourself feel and grieve in your own time without the weight of guilt. Not an easy thing to do but I’m so glad to hear you’re surrounded by love.

My best to you..

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 integrity and are a dying breed it seems.

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 and twinkling eyes. He will be missed.

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.

THURSDAY: E! News Daytime Drama Deep Dive Visits DAYS, GH, and Y&R

Mark your calendars for a very special segment on the soaps, when E! News delivers their Daytime Drama deep dive on Thursday, May 23 hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy at 7pm-8pm ET/PT on cable’s E!

Look for set visits, interviews, retro clips, and more with some of the most famous and enduring characters in the genre.  Here’s just a sample of what to watch for:

When E! News visit the set of Y&R, Eric Braeden recounts the time Victor was feeding his wife Julia’s lover trapped in the basement dead rat; while Tracey Bregman (Lauren) reflects on why the viewers love the relationships and families in Genoa City.

In Salem and Days of our Lives, E! chats with series staples: Kristian Alfonso (Hope), then Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John).  Deidre reveals “possession will be on my tombstone” in terms of Marlena’s most infamous story of all-time when the good doc was possessed by Satan, while the beloved duo discuss why daytime is the best job to have.  Alfonso talks on the history of her character sharing: “I am going to hold near and dear to my heart the beginnings of Hope. And the adventure and the romance of Bo and Hope”.

Courtesy/E!

From the set of General Hospital new interviews are featured with: Laura Wright (Carly), Steve Burton (Jason) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia), plus Casting Director Mark Teschner remembers Meghan Markle’s acting debut on the ABC daytime drama series.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.

Check out the promo below.  Then, let us know if you will be checking out the ‘deep dive’ this Thursday via the comment section below.
