What a sad time for the soaps.
On November 16, All My Children star David Canary passed away at age 77 from natural causes. David starred on the series as twins Adam and Stuart Chandler for 27 years.
Wow. What a loss for the acting community.
Kelly Ripa, who once co-starred alongside Canary as his "TV daughter", tweeted:
So sad to learn of the passing of the great David Canary. A incredibly talented actor. A wonderful man. I was lucky to know you.

Aw. What a wonderful pair.
Sarah Michelle Gellar also relayed her condolences, saying:
So sweet. It sounds like D.C. was beloved by all.
The soap icon leaves behind his wife M of thirty-three years Maureen and his son, Christopher, his daughter, Kathryn, his grandson, Donovan Canary, and his brother John.
For those who are feeling generous, donations in David's memory can be made out to the Alzheimer's Association by visiting alz.org "David Canary Memorial Fund."
Rest easy, Mr. Canary.

This is so sad.
Serena Williams' dog Jackie died on Tuesday morning, the tennis superstar revealed on social media.
The 16-year-old dog had been with Serena nearly her entire life, so the bond was incredibly strong between the two.
The athlete shared the news, along with adorable pics of the pup on Instagram, writing (below):
While we knew Lamar Odom's prognosis was grim, we had no idea it was THIS bad.
According to sources close to Odom, the athlete suffered irreversible brain damage due to the strokes and oxygen deprivation he suffered last month. In fact, the father of two can't even walk or communicate properly on his own.
A source revealed:
"Lamar has made some progress, but his cognitive impairment is making life very challenging."
Ugh, how frustrating! Especially considering L.O. was once a renowned NBA star!
The insider added:
Sherri Shepherd Loses Appeal To Have Her Name Removed From Lamar Sally Jr.'s Birth Certificate — Will She Try For The Supreme Court Next?
On Tuesday, it was revealed that Sherri Shepherd has lost an appeal to have her name removed from the birth certificate of the son she had via surrogacy with Lamar Sally. Oof!
As we previously reported, the 30 Rock actress continues to be wrapped up in a heated legal battle with her ex after the funny lady expressed she no longer wished to be the legal parent to Lamar Jr. — who was born via an egg donor.
In fact, the View host was hesitant to remain little Lamar's momma because the surrogacy decision was made pre-separation to her former flame — claiming she was tricked into making the decision to have another child. Whoa!
We're not surprised to report that lawyers attempted to convince a court that the Broadway star shouldn't be financially responsible for the child since they aren't biologically related. Unfortunately, the defense didn't work and Sherri will still have to pay child support after losing her recent bid.
Specifically, the 48-year-old will continue to pay $4,100 per month until the infant turns 13-years-old — where the check amount will increase to $4,600. Bummer.
Though, it seems this case could head to the Supreme Court if the comedienne wants to appeal this recent ruling. We have a feeling we'll be seeing Sherri in court again very soon!
