The Light is Out...; ...and crying like a baby

I posted the other day about Alan's death. We get Guiding Light at 9am in Chicago...I am not here to spoil it (because there would be PLENTY to spoil!) but, I wanted to get this thread going on the thoughts of the finale.

I was impressed and not disappointed in one bit. I cried like a baby (I am a man, so, I should probably not admit to that!) because it was just beautifully done and tied up loose ends. It ended...but you can feel it continue in your heart.

This was indeed a generational show. I had looked forward to one day sharing it with my kids, should I be so blessed to have any. While that is not to be, I am thankful I got to watch the show with my mom, and her mom, and have those memories to cherish. My grandma died in 1985 - Guiding Light was really my last remaining non-family link to her.

We will all have memories of the good, and the bad. I am choosing to use today's finale as what Guiding Light will forever be to me.

I am anxious to hear thoughts from all of you, *my* Guiding Light family.

I was wondering about Vanessa, too...but because of the show overall, I didn't think of it until after! I will just assume she was at the park with everyone as well. :)

I think there was closure with Jeffrey, at least in my opinion, on Thursday. I think the idea we are to believe that Jeffrey will spend his days chasing Edmund. But I think Edmund was right about Jeffrey loving the thrill and danger of it - that it means more to him than anything else...more than his wife and child, even.

Anyway - I just loved it. I have watched it two times now (the boyfriend had to watch it when he got home) and have cried both times. And lucky me, I get to do it all over again when my mom comes over today. Why do I torture myself?! Then I made the mistake of youtube'ing old GL scenes. Yeah, that was hard!

I will always love this show. Always.
