    There are no words that can experess my anger and dismay over the finality of ATWT. To everyone affiliated with this show: I have been watching this Soap literally since I was born. This was the show that my mom, both grandmas, great-grandma and aunts watched. I used to call ATWT the “family show” because everyone in my family watched it! Well, I will be with you until the end. Thank you for giving this viewer one hour each day to step into your world. You will be greatly missed.

    I know how you feel. My whole family has watched this soap since I was real small. Not only this one but the GL and now it is off the air. You will be sadly missed ATWT.
