This week on “,” Genoa City mourns the loss of Neil Winters (), who is found to have passed away by Devon Hamilton () on today’s episode. In the recently released promo highlighting the four-episode story arc in which friends, family and colleagues come together to share their love and memories of a fallen star who touched every facet of the town, the emotions run high and the tears flow long.

Using such solemn words as “One extraordinary man touched the lives of so many and will never be forgotten,” this week’s promo features music from the group with their song “Hold Your Head Up High,” off of their 2018 album Extralife, setting the tone.

“I don’t know if I would even be here right now without him,” proclaims a devastated Nikki Newman () as she clutches her chest.

“I just thought he’d always be there,” says an emotional Ashley Abbott () as she looks up holding a fist.

“Neil didn’t just touch lives, he saved lives,” declares Jack Abbott () as he speaks from the heart during Neil’s funeral, which is scheduled to air on Thursday, April 25.

“I don’t want to think about a world without Neil Winters in it,” says Neil’s brother, Malcolm (), as a clip of Neil’s ex-wife Sofia Dupre (), their son Moses (), Abby Newman (), Leslie Michaelson (), Christine Blair (), Sharon Newman (), Nikki, Ashley and Victor Newman (), among others, flies by.

The promo ends with Shemar Moore’s trademark two-finger kiss as he salutes the man above.

“Farewell to Neil Winters: The Young and the Restless” airs Tuesday, April 23 through Friday, April 26 on CBS. “A Tribute to Kristoff St. John” airs Monday, April 29, also on CBS.
