  8. the end of an era. He had a great Final scene. FYI..Did you know he was on GH in the 80's during the first Duke/Mr Big story, he was a politician.

  9. RIP sir. He really made the role of EQ his own and always seemed to enjoy every moment of it. Roger, do you have his final scene to post for those of us who missed it?

  10. Monica, I'm with you. That scene last week had me thinking the same thing. He looked so weak. I wondered if he'd had a stroke or something. Then the montage with Tracy's voice-over lead me to believe they knew he was in bad shape and, therefore, used said montage as a tribute. I admit I was crying! He was a great talent and will be missed. A sad day, indeed. (I hope they do another, bigger, tribute!)

  11. A very sad piece of news. I watched GH sporatically, mostly because of my dear, late MIL. He was one of the best recast in Daytime Television. Played the cantankerous old coot to a brilliant T. He will be missed. I hope they do a befitting tribute to him soon.

  13. John Ingle's appearance on GH last week truly touched me. I really think he knew that he was saying goodbye to us through the little girl actress. Hi wonderful work will be missed. Thank you John.

  14. I remember being shocked when GH decided to recast Edward. Surely, no one could replace David Lewis. Well, no one did. Ingle made Edward his own and gave us years and years of great entertainment. He shall be missed.

    Live in Memory, sir.
