The sweet, touching caption accompanied a photo of the late St. John looking dashing in a sweater and shirt ensemble, showing off his signature bright smile.


Many of the actor’s co-stars, including Christel Khalil, who played Lily Winters, the daughter of St. John’s character in the soap opera, paid tributes to him.
