Lisa LoCicero, who plays Olivia Falconeri Quartermaine on General Hospital, is as devoted to family as her character is. Sadly, the actress has suffered a deep, personal loss.
Lisa LoCicero Pays Tribute to Her Late Father
She shared the news on Instagram as part of the healing process. “I’d hoped this moment would never come,” LoCicero began. “The best dad a girl could ever hope for passed away peacefully, as he lived his life…surrounded by the love of his family. It still seems unreal that I am finally a member of this sad club. I’m so old it just felt like I’d go on having a dad forever…
“As other members of this club have told me, the grief comes in waves, and it’s not what you expect,” the actress continued. “Time to grow up a little more, even at my age! Thank you dad, for setting the bar high, for protecting me and always showing us how much we were cherished. I will remember you in healthy, smiling years before time took so many of the things you enjoyed. Death, like all important things is as common as dirt and yet completely unbelievable.”
Touching Last Words
LoCicero ended her post with the words, “I’ll always have you with me Dad…” Check out her post below to see a slideshow of photos of her beloved father.
