So Long, Mrs. H.

First Palmer Cortlandt, now Mrs. H., Days of our Lives matriarch Alice Horton. The news broke today that Frances Reid, 95, is gone. Days is one of those soaps that I would get really into for a time (notably during the Hope/Princess Gina storyline). But even when I tuned out, she was always there with her homemade doughnuts and words of wisdom when one of her children or grandchildren or heck just about anybody in Salem was nursing a broken heart, needed advice, etc. Now she’s no more. We have our memories, but like the possible loss of the soap genre itself, the gap remains.
