    What do I think of the outpouring of love? It was totally deserved. I met him a couple of times FCW. He was sweet funny and everything you could hope for. A true classy man. Something a lot of others should emulate


  2. JMG says:

    He was clearly loved by those that knew him. Fans will also miss him dearly. General Hospital will not be the same without him. RIP Mr. Ingle.


  3. Lin says:

    John Ingle brought such class to the character of Edward. Regardless of what Edward did, you still loved him. The viewer could also tell that Mr. Ingle himself was a class act, and a very lovable, loving person. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends, and his grieving GH friends. I wish I could have known him.

    I am sorry for the loss of Mr. John Ingle. The GH cast and crew have lost a great friend, idol and mentor. My heart goes out to all of them. Write down your fondest memories to keep them with you forever. GH must do some shows dedicated to him. Not with a million other story lines, but one dedicated to people talking about Edward and one of with that tied to flashbacks. If the idiots in charge before had not killed off Alan, we could have Alan talking about his father and at lest the Qs would have a paternal head. Now there are only 3 Qs, one by marriage, MOnica, and Tracy, and for a short time longer, Jason.

    He was a great actor loved seeing him on GH. Last week brought tears to me as i watched his final show. But he is at peace now. To all his family, friends , and his GH family please know his fans loved him. And our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    Peace and love John thank you and ENJOY YOUR REWARDS.


  6. Beacon says:

    Can somebody get in touch with Robin Christopher (Skye) – i’d love to read a statement from her about her beloved colleague. She’s the Greta Garbo of daytime and doesn’t do any publicity or have a twitter, but right now she and Jane Elliot are the ones I’m thinking must be most distraught to lose their adored John. I feel that Robin shared a really special connection with John Ingle that was magical on screen. Loved their scenes together.

    GH has an angel looking out for them now! Please do a nice episode memorializing John/Edward! He will be missed by many and many thanks for being a part of our lives and enjoy John! Thank you… John!

    Tristan Rogers: “So sorry to hear of the passing of John Ingle. Always a gracious gentleman.”

    Michelle Stafford: “RIP John Ingle.A class act to the end ”

    Jason Thompson: “RT @goodgirlbad: He’d give me a hug and kiss and say “How’s my boy?” Every time I saw him. #JohnIngle”

    Rebecca Herbst: “Thinking about how happy John Ingle must be dancing with his wife Grace Lynn up in heaven… His family will remain in my prayers xoxo “

    When co-workers leave such high praise you just have to know what a great person Mr. Ingle had to have been. Touching. He will be missed.
