I'm so saddened by this news. I feel like someone in my family died.
I feel the same and every time i see a salute to him I get teary eyed, but it was especially difficult for me since e yesterday was my boyfriend's birthday and he passed away in 2013, we were together for almost 26 yrs.
I really wish that I can say that I'm surprised, but I'm not. I've been expecting this news for a very long time and when John couldn't even make it to the Daytime Emmy Awards to accept his Lifetime Achievement Award this past summer, I knew that he had to have been in pretty bad shape to not even be able to make a video appearance and he more than likely wasn't going to be around for much longer. His death is going to leave a massive hole in the Days cast for many years to come. Many condolences to Jennifer and her family. I hope he rests in peace and he's no longer suffering in Heaven.
So saddened by this. Putting together the recap last week, all of the Victor one-liners and the sweet scene he and Maggie shared made seeing the news yesterday morning (from Jennifer's IG post) hurt all the more. The outpouring of love from the cast/actors he worked with really shows how beloved/what a presence he was in the daytime community. Rest in peace, good sir.
As much as I knew this day was coming, this still makes me so sad and brings tears to my eyes. I have been dreading the day that we would no longer be able to hear Mr. Aniston deliver Victor's quips and one liners. He really did have some good ones. RIP Mr. Aniston.
I'm glad Days will be doing a tribute to him. I'll have to be sure that I'm home alone when I watch that.
