I never had a grandmother and watching Frances do the Alice Horton gave me comfort. I'm gonna miss her so much.
Thanks for reporting. :'(

We all new it was coming , but somehow your just never prepared. RIP Lovely Lady, and thankyou for the years of Joy and laughter and amazing memories.

I can only hope they will do her passing justice on the show.. They can even tie it in with Mickey's death
But I really really hope they dont spare any cost for this amazing Icon of the show.
Bring back any and everyone who is willing and available.. some may even come for little compensation just to do her exit justice.

So sad! <3
There better be a proper funeral, and may it take up the entire episode, if not two!

This is really sad news. Terrible news and stomach turning.

The show better indeed deliver a tribute of epic proportions. If anyone deserves it, it is Frances. God bless her.

RIP Frances. Poor thing held on for a very long time, but she lived a full life and brought joy to many over the years.

DAYS better be planning a damn good tribute show to Frances/Alice.

R.I.P. Frances.

Condolences to her real and DAYS family and to all of us fans who have loved her as our surrogate Gran all these years.

But just to clarify, do you mean they meant to do something for her in conjunction with the 45th anniversary?

And wasn't she 95?

There are no words. This is so incredibly sad. I'm speechless. Alice Horton was the heart and soul of Days Even when she wasn't on the show, her presence was felt. She was everyone's grandmother. I only knew one of my grandparents for a very brief time, but I always wanted a Gran like Alice. She wil be so sorely missed by all. RIP Frances. A true legend!!! May flights of angels, take you to your resting place of peace. Deepest condolences to all her family friends and Days colleagues. I hope the show gives her a truly fitting tribute episode.

This is one instance where the show can't mess up. I know there are some family members they can't bring back but the ones they need to bring back better be there.

I will lash out for sure if they mess this up. I'm way too emotionally attached to Alice Horton not to accept anything but the best.

Melissa Reeves should be phone call 31. I better send her some words of comfort on Twitter. She's going to be a mess. Frances meant the world to her.
