Dear Soaps,
Dear Reiner,
On Y&R, how did Jill's father, William Foster, die?

Dear Lindsey,
In 1976, Bill Foster, battling lung cancer and emphysema, was put on a life-support respirator. He begged wife Liz to end his suffering, and she did. Bill and Liz's son Snapper was suspected of pulling the plug, but the case was dropped due to lack of evidence. (MJM)
