  1. I also remember Wayne Tippit from his role as Ted Adamson from late 1970s/early 1980s Search For Tomorrow while it still was broadcast on CBS! Ted was Sunny's father & another of Stephanie's lovers! :)

  2. Great tribute bringing back a lot of memories. Two people you missed however: actress Rita Lloyd who passed away one week before Tom O'Rourke -- Lloyd was most memorable as Lucille Wexler on GUIDING LIGHT but also played Edwina Walsh on AS THE WORLD TURNS and secondly, announcer Ken Roberts who in the soap world worked on THE SECRET STORM and LOVE OF LIFE.
