Today is the day that the residents of Pine Valley and long time fans of All My Children pay tribute and say goodbye to the ruthless, Palmer Cortlandt and his portrayer, James Mitchell. As many know, Mitchell died on January 22nd of complications from pneumonia. He was 89 years old. And now as promised by AMC executive producer, Julie Hanan Carruthers and the new head writing regime of David Kreizman and Donna Swajeski, Pine Valley pays its respects in a very special episode. Taylor Miller (Nina) and Gillian Spencer (Daisy) are back and the town shares their memories…good and bad of Palmer.
