The Passing of a Legend
Benjamin Hendrickson
by Sonia

I cannot truly express my sadness of the passing of a true legend, when I heard that Benjamin had passed away I was utterly shocked, and honestly I couldnít believe that it had happened. I have been enjoying his talent for many years and all As the World Turns viewers are truly blessed as being able to have enjoyed him through the years. I have been watching this show 13 years, so I feel as if I have had the honour of watching him work, and boy was it amazing. Even to this day I am still shocked that he will no longer be on this show, I feel as if I have gotten to know him over the years, but to be honest I never had the privilege of meeting him face to face, but still I feel as if I had known him. That is something that I will never forget because a talent like that cannot be forgotten. For me I absolutely loved the way that he smiles, normally he didnít put on this huge grin, but he always had a shy sort of smile on his face. I loved the way that his character would look at his family, and it made me feel warm inside. I pray for his family, but also for his other family; the cast and crew of As the World Turns. I hope that everyone is doing well during this heartbreaking time and know that there are so many fans out there thinking about them all.

To Benjamin I would like to say;

Thank you for everything that you have given me over the years, Thanks for the blessings that you have given to the viewers for 21 years. I hope that you find peace, and happiness because that is what you have given me over the years. You had talent that so many young actors wish that they could have, and honestly not many have achieved that. Thank your mother for sending you to Julliard because it was money well spent.

Finally, Benjamin Hendrickson will be greatly missed, he passed away at the age of 55.
