Soap vet Chrishell Hartley suffered a deep and personal loss on Easter Sunday that just breaks her and her family’s heart.

Hartley’s father died after a long battle with cancer, according to the actress’ Instagram. Hartley wrote of the loss Sunday afternoon.

“We lost you today but it was a long terrible battle with cancer that started taking you years ago.

“I choose to remember you the way you were before it took it’s hold on you. You are at peace now, and ever the Catholic man at heart, I think you chose Easter for a reason.

“I grew up in an unconventional family and my dad was a drummer-the heartbeat of the music. Today we lost the heartbeat of our family but I am happy knowing he took his music to heaven. It just got a lot more rock and roll up there. We love you so much.”

Hartley, who began her soap career as Amanda Dillon on All My Children, is now embroiled in a major story as Jordan on Days of Our Lives, although we don’t see much of her. Still, the character’s son, David, has taken center stage.

Soap Hub sends our sincerest condolences to Hartley and her family on this heartbreaking loss.
