my deepest sympathies to his family. to his sister and niece Mickey, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I enjoyed catching up on Rocky's life the few times you brought Mickey to her pediatricians office. I saw you at Kroger's a while back but I was in a hurry and didn't stop to chat. I wasn't sure you'd remember me since it's been awhile since we chatted. Again, my deepest sympathies.

I LOVED Mitch Lawrence ever since I was a child! I use to watch OLTL with my Grandmother everyday! Mitch Lawrence grew on her as well lol...I was soooo...thrilled when he finally returned to OLTL after so many years!!! I couldn't wait to tune into OLTL everday, to see what my "Mitchy" was up to that day! I am so sorry that I never had the chance to met Roscoe Born! As that would have truly been an honor as well as, a childhood dream all wrapped into one!!! I will miss you ALWAYS! Rest Well Mr. Born! You were SO amazing!!! My condolences to Mr. Born's family!

I am very saddened by the loss of this tremendously talented man. I watched him on four soaps-- "Ryan's Hope", "Santa Barbara", "The City" and "Days of our Lives". He was also an excellent musician. May God grant the family comfort. He was loved by so many and will never be forgotten.

My wife and I use to watch one life to live, and we hated "Mitch Laurence " aka "Mitch the messenger" when you hate a TV character that much it means the actor is doing an excellent job. It is with great sadness that I read he died today.

Roscoe was more than just a great actor, at least for me. He had a way of connecting with my soul. When his character of Robert Barr felt pain, I felt it too. I loved him on Santa Barbara. When he married Roberta Weiss, I was so excited. I want to thank their daughter, Alberta, for releasing a public statement about his death. Please keep advocating for people who, like your Dad (and me) live with mental illness. It is a stigma that must be erased. Much love to Roscoe's friends and other family members as well. I met Roscoe in 1990 and am so grateful for the hug he gave.
