    “Alice Horton” has been part of my family since I started watching “Days” back in 1969. She and Frances were good role models that we could use more of now days. I miss her very much.


  2. RJS says:

    Yes, they were good role models that we could use more on daytime shows now. Alice/Frances Reid portrayed strong, dignified matriachs with integrity. Believe it or not, I believe more characters like that would actually draw people to the show. We are looking for that and need this at this time.

    She was the grandmother we all wished to be like. Spunky, and never afraid to say and be who she was. She will be deeply missed in my family. I will remember her always.
