Please join us in sending love to Farah Fath Galfond (ex-Mimi, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; Gigi, ONE LIFE TO LIVE), as she mourns the death of her father-in-law, Glen Galfond, who passed away at the age of 65. “On May 27, we got one of those calls,” she shared on Instagram. “The ones you cannot prepare for. My sweet father-in-law had suddenly been taken from us. As the blur of the next few days ensued, all the precious memories I’ve had with him for the last nine years have been brought to the surface.”
The actress revealed that Glenn welcomed her into the family from the very beginning, when she began dating Phil Galfond, and continued to be a source of love and support as the couple married and later welcomed their son, Spencer. “I came to realize there was something about him that I’m not sure I would be able to say about anyone else that I know,” Fath recalled. “He was always smiling. I could not and cannot picture his face without seeing all of his teeth, too!
“Always a smile, always happy and positive in any situation, with a true zest for life,” the DAYS alum continued. “He loved working hard and playing hard. He loved his kids and math and pickleball and cooking. He passed on so many beautiful qualities to my husband that I will cherish even more now and forever.”
The happy memories of her father-in-law that came flooding back helped ease the pain of losing him. “Rest peacefully, Glenn,” Fath declared. “It’s not going to be the same without you except that I promise I will try to smile much, much more.”
Our thoughts are with the entire Galfond family during this difficult time.
