After 40 years the only soap opera I watch is going off the air. No more “All My Children”. I guess I have until September before it ends. What will life be like without Erica Kane and all my favorite other characters? I look forward to seeing them in something else.
My only frame of reference for this loss is when I was 10 and my favorite show “Howdy Doody” went off the air and I remember I cried. I suspect I will shed a tear when “All My Children” ends. I cry now when long time cast members die and their tributes are on the show.
