This past weekend feels like a whirlwind. But Billy’s family, especially his mother, feel the pain of losing Billy quite directly.

According to the latest GH news updates, Billy Miller’s Mom issues a statement on her son’s death. In her message to fans, Patricia disclosed the following, “I would like to share the following thoughts,” Patricia wrote. “I want to personally thank the many fans & personal friends for the overwhelming amount of love, prayers & condolences sent to me and my family on the devastating death of my beautiful son BJ — Billy Miller.

He fought a long hard valiant battle with bipolar depression for years. He did everything he could to control the disease. He loved his family, his friends and his fans but in the end the disease won the fight and he surrendered his life. The other causes of death being told are not true. I wish they were but they just aren’t. We all loved him so much and are desperately trying to deal with our loss. I will have nothing further to say. Thanks for the love and support.”

As you know, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard also suffers from bipolar disorder. He’s a strong advocate for mental health awareness and Billy’s death is a reminder to so many that this disease claims lives. Sadly, Billy’s bipolar became too much. We are deeply saddened by the news and continue to pray for Billy’s family.
