Early Saturday morning, Foust posted the news on his Facebook page, saying, "I couldn't save her. I couldn't save her. She's gone." He later added, "I want to respond to every individual who has helped out in this terrible time, but not sure when I can. Molly would be so grateful to all of you. I couldn't still be here without that support network. I would have laid down next to her and died. I will continue to struggle to find love and joy and goodness. If I was gone, I would have wished she could find those things again, too. I will continue to try to find a new way to live. I just can picture it yet."

Glynn, who played an ER doctor on the NBC drama, also appeared on Boss and Early Edition
