    This is the least they can do, as she was Y & R. There is no way possible, the show will ever ever be the same.

    Well I will have my box of kleenex ready because I’m sure I will crying throughout the whole show. And this is to Michael and/or his team- on your Popular Content section you have up the earlier post that Jeanne is still alive- I know at the time it must have gotten a lot of comments, but now that she has passed I think it might be confusing to see it- some might think she is still alive when she is not–so you might want to take that off the list. Thanks.

    I will miss Katherine ( Jeanne Cooper ) She was a gutsy actress on the show and told it the way it was, I think she made the show and am very sorry about her passing. I have watched this story since it started, it will be sad watching it without her. I look forward the the tribute on May 28 with my box of kleenex, So sorry for the families loss, I know what it is like to lose a mother, laugh at all the good memories and god bless her. R.I.P. Queen Katherine.

    I’m happy about the decision to honor Mrs. C. Tuesdays date will give the family a chance to recuperate and the producers of Y&R and the family to obtain the best recordings to honor her. I’m going to miss her.

    That is wonderful. She deserves several episodes in her honor. She worked on the show for 40 years and in heavy story, not just supporting cast.

    I’ll be watching and crying, I’m sure.

    I’m so glad they are doing a tribute to the Duchess, just thought it might be sooner. She will be missed. We always loved her laugh most of all. She was my moms favorite & they passed away 3 months apart. RIP Mrs. C.

    I knew there would be a tribute. I never doubted it for a minute.. We know you tape we’ll in advance so you would not know about this till it happened. We just have to be patient. It will happen ASAP. Good luck! We know it will be a great tribute. Mrs. C (Jeanne ) will be sadly missed.

    It is awesome that there will be a tribute to her-no one deserves it more. However, I think her final tribute/legacy is that all of the actors that she helped will continue to carry on the work that she so loved and in that love taught them. As well as her children, they are her legacy.

    I wonder if the Memorial Day rerun will be a strong Jeanne Cooper episode. Hope so.

    If there are going to write her passing into an episode, I think they should combine Bold and The Beautiful with Young and The Restless for one additonal tribute/funeral episode. Pretty much every actor on both shows have worked on one or the other and there has been cross over of characters.

    The fans as well as the young and restless cast need this to say a final good bye to a brilliant, talented, wonderful actress and human being. The show must go on but don’t
    know how it will without this incredible lady. I truly loved jeanne Cooper as a person and as an actress. As far as the show goes i hope the writers give her the proper send off that she truly deserves. We love you, Mrs. C.

    If they are taping 5-6 weeks ahead, Katherine’s death will not happen until at least mid-June unless they edit.

    So glad to hear this. Jeanne deserves to be honored. She was the glue of that show and will be missed eternally. I was raised watching her and this soap, as my mother has watched since day one. We both cried..we loved her and it won’t be the same without her. She always felt like another grandmother to me. R.I.P. Jeanne xo

    Very sad news, My wife and I have been watching for years. A tribute fit for the Duchess , she deserves that. You know she will always be Mrs Chancellor in my eyes. I wrote down on a piece of paper the date for the tribute so we don’t miss it and what did I write not Jeanne Cooper but Mrs Chancellor tribute thats how powerful her acting that role was. THE DUCHESS WILL BE MISSED . RIP

    I am so glad a tribute will be aired so all of her fans can bid her farewell. A lovely lady and will be missed by many who have followed her as Katherine Chanceller all of these years. My deepest condolences to her family.

    Thank God CBS and Sony will honor her in a befitting manner. She gave a good part of the latter part of her life to Y&R. No one deserves it more than she does. And hopefully her real life family will be there to participate and see just how much she was loved by people they will never meet.
    The show wont be the same, but if written right this will cause a lot of drama in Genoa City and it will produce some very realistic touching performances because in this case the actors have suffered a real loss. Despite the melodrama, Y+R has always been the most grounded serial. And the loss of Mrs. C will no doubt produce some real poignant drama. Get those tissues ready. God bless Jeanne Cooper .
