    Cassie Newman...OMG! That one just broke me in two. It was so hard to watch yet you couldn't miss a minute. Everyone was fantastic in that story!

    I can't stand it when one half of a SuperCouple dies!

    Another one that I can't stand to think of was Frankie Frame on Another World! She died terribly and you just ached for Cass and her family.

    Tammy on Guiding Light is another one.

    Becky on B&B.

    Ok, I need to's too sad.

    Stone Cates and BJ Jones come to mind. Stone by far was way way more sad than anybody else.

    Stone was turkey sad but BJ's death was ugly cry from beginning to end. I could watch it now for the millionth time and cry so hard my throat will hurt. It is ridiculous it isn't even one of the choices. Felicia crying. No, not Barbara Jean. And BOBBIE. Comforting her. Tony's steadfast acceptance and resolve. Putting his ear to Maxie's chest to hear his daughters heart. Even Alan's quiet explanation to Lucy about what happened to BJ and how the transplant would work had my eyes hurting. Some of the best writing ever in daytime. Sorry, but Casey's death on Y&R was a good imitation but an imitation none the less.

    Ok it is not supposed to say turkey sad. It is supposed to say terribly sad. Stupid correcting thingy.

    What about BJ Jones? Her heart allowed Maxie to live and when Tony put his head on her chest to hear BJ's heart beating, tears everytime!

    NYSun, your recap almost had me in tears. That WAS great writing and it's too bad they don't do it like that anymore!

    Isabella on Days of Our Lives back in 1992. On the terrace in Paris in John's arms. I cried for days.
