Many All My Children viewers have expressed the hope that a fitting tribute to James Mitchell (Palmer Cortlandt), who passed away on Friday January 22, would be given by the show. Soaps.com can tell you that Soap Opera Digest is reporting today that AMC is, in fact, gearing up for a moving tribute to the actor.

The source goes on to say that the memorial is not expected to air until spring, as the show would like to wait until newly-named co-head writers, Donna Swajeski and David Kreizman take the helm.

Soaps.com will be anticipating the memorial to this talented man! What is your favorite ‘Palmer’ memory? Share with Soaps.com in the comment section below! Please feel free to leave your condolences under James Mitchell Passes Away.
