Heaping praises over her late son, the soap star said, "Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison." She concluded on a comforting note for parents who are also mourning the loss of a child. "To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let's stick around and see what's in store for our extraordinary lives."
