    The family name was Ryan, and the hope was the hope for his family. Good old show, I used to watch on SoapNet.Roxy from OLTL was on there as was Mike (sonny’s dad) from GH.

    Your question was all ready answered…so I won’t re-answer it…I hate when that happens.

    I just wanted to add this was one of my favorites……it was unbelievable how fast ST, Patricks Day would come around…because Maeve would sit on the bar and sing Danny Boy and before you knew another year had past and she would be up on the bar singing again!

    A lot of actors from that show are on other soaps…Ilene Kristen / Deliah….is now Roxy OLTL Walt Willey….Jack..AMC….Scott Holmes…Dave Greenburg….Tom on ATWT just to name a few… bad it’s gone!
