General Hospital Star Maurice Benard Mourns The Passing Of His Father In New Touching Post
“As I lay here with a heavy heart but no anxiety knowing I will never see my hero again,” the actor shared on Instagram on Oct. 30. “My dad was one of a kind. No one like him. Those who knew him know what I’m talking about. My dad always said in Spanish, ‘What’s going to happen, it’s going to happen. Don’t worry.’ Say hi to everybody, Dad. Maybe you can even sing a song with Frank Sinatra.”
Sharing a photo with both his mother and his brother by his side, Maurice captioned it with, “I believe when someone dies they leave you with a gift. And it can come in all forms. I’m so glad I was able to spend some time with my brother and my mom at my father’s Mass.”
Of course, it didn’t take long at all for Maurice’s fans and followers to share messages of condolences on his page. Many of them wrote, “I’m so sorry for your loss. Regardless of our age, losing a parent makes most of us feel like a lost child again. But as long as we have the memories, I don’t believe that our loved ones really ever really leave us. I know that in some way, both of my parents are still with me in life even though they have both passed. What the eyes can’t see, the heart surely will feel if we believe.”
