Eva’s post came soon after Hollywood Life reported that her sister, Lara Larue Rutherford, afforded the former soap star some much-needed happiness days during this difficult time.

The “CSI: Miami” star uploaded an image of her and Lara beaming at the camera as she wished the latter a “happy birthday.”

Once alerted, paramedics responded to the late actor’s house and rushed him to Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, California, where he was placed on life support.
