WE WILL MISS HER GREATLY
October 23, 2012
Frances Reid was the perfect example of the perfect American mother, grandmother and great grandmother in her long running role as Alice Horton. As her and Macdonald Carey were the original stars of Days of our Lives, now we get to see their grandchildren and great grandchildren on the forefront of the show. Days has such an iconic place in the history of television and has touched millions of hearts as it continues to.

I had a chance to visit with Frances quite often via telephone shortly before her death. And while she struggled from time to time mentally... she was always a true joy to talk to. She will be greatly missed in the Celebrity Direct family.

I just learned of Gran's/Mrs. H's passing and I was so emotional as I watched her service on Days of our Lives, when I researched it online I found that she had passed away back in February of this year. I know I'm late but my thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. You will be missed :)

June 29, 2010
I loved "Alice Horton". I have watched the show since it first came on. I always wanted a Gran like her. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. God Bless you all! Mrs. Reid was an wonderful actress. You will be greatly missed by all who watched the show and I'm sure by all who knew you in person.... SW-from Texas.

June 28, 2010
As a male, we don't usually watch soaps but for some reason I like Days of our Lives and just to see how all the cast came together really did my heart joy. Hope really got me and I found myself having tears forming in my eyes. Mrs. Reid you were a wonderful actress and always gave sound advice that I used for myself. Even though it was just a show, to me it was more. May you Rest in Peace!
June 28, 2010
My heart was so broken Friday with the airing of her funeral. I was so impressed at the appearance of all the stars of yesterday. I cried so hard. She was a wonderful actor and had to be a wonderful person in real life. Long will her memory live.
June 28, 2010
We will remember you with love. Always the best "Gram" throughout the years to the cast members and to the viewing public. Rest in peace dear lovely lady. We will miss you all the days of our lives.
June 28, 2010
With my busy schedule I wasn't always able to watch. But thank you for DVR as I DVR all the episodes. I started watching Days with my Grandmother and as I watched this memorial today it made me cry as my own Grandmother is 98 and I think of what it will be like when she is gone one day. Alice will be missed!! I'm proud that Days waited and did her funeral justice!!
June 28, 2010
Watched the memorial service for "Gram" and cried as if she were my own grandmother. The cast was very sincere in their tribute and it was obvious that they, too, had lost not just a cast member, but a family member. Frances Reid was every family's matriarch. I thought it was touching to revisit scenes of her with MacDonald Carey. They had the only marriage on the show that worked and lasted. Rest in peace, Frances. You were a real class act!
June 28, 2010
I have always watched Days of Our Lives. Mrs.H gave me more advice then did my own mother over the years. You will missed dearly. May you rest in peace and may god be with your family and the cast of Days.
June 28, 2010
I just watched the show with the goodbyes and I cried my eyes out. All the cast did a excellent job, I feel they are a part of my family as well. I grew up watching days'.Alice you will be missed. and to Francis Reid "I know your looking down smiling". Thanks for all your years on days.........God bless you and your family~~
June 27, 2010
We miss Francis Reid, but we also miss MacDonald Carey they both were icons. It is so great how Days keeps Macdonalds memory alive by keeping his voice on the Days of our Lives beginning and second half.I hope they keep it up and they need to keep Francis's memory alive somehow in the upcoming years. Days is the only soap I watch and I can say I have watched it for 42 years and I am 42. Alice and Tom were both great icons and they will be missed.We love and miss you Alice and Tom (Francis and MacDonald
June 27, 2010
I've been a huge fan since 1968,Mrs.H was every ones "Gran" Peace and Love to her family. I'll miss you Alice.

June 25, 2010
I sat and watched the beautiful Tribute to (Alice/Grams) Francis Reid. Bringing back some of the old caste memebers was an absolute brilliant idea.I have watched DOL from the beginning. Loosing such a wonderful woman who surely was the Matriarch of the show is very sad. To both her families my deepest sympathy for your loss. I am hoping that the writers will bring back some of the wonderful characters that have made this show so successful. Thank you Frances for helping us remember all the days of our lives.

Days of Our Lives has been a fixture in my home as long as I can remember. As a devoted fan of Days, I am going to miss seeing Grandma Horton. She held that show together and her warm spirit shined through. Thank you for entertaining us through the years.
March 26, 2010
Thanks for sharing Francis with us all these years. I miss her already - she was such a great actress!
March 21, 2010
I watched the very first show of Days of Our Lives as a young military wife living in Virginia, that was nearly 45 years ago. Alice Horton (Frances Reid) was the glue that kept Days a great soap. She was like the Grandma we had or as some hoped they had. She will be missed. Truly a great LADY and actress, great actress becuse you never beloved she was anything other then what you witnessed on the screen, a loving wife, mother and grandmother.

For Frances...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

How did I not hear about this till today... I was just catching up on DVR!!! (Alice Horton- Frances# YOU ARE MISSED!!! DOOL needs to give her a proper memorial!!! Patti I. #New Jersey)
February 23, 2010
I have watched Days since the 60's. Something has been missing from the show since Francis has been gone. She was a light, a spark, an energy that has never been duplicated. Francis was the "Gran" we all wished we had. Rest peacefully lovely lady, we were blessed and honored to have you.
February 20, 2010
FRANCIS REID WAS THE HEART AND SOLE OF DAYS I HAVE WATCHED IT SINCE IT STARTED AND WILL MISS HER DEARLY LOVE TO HER FAMILY

February 19, 2010
We were truly sad to learn of Frances' passing. I have watched her for over 30 years and I truly hope that the Days producers recognize the character Alice's passing in an upcoming episode with lots of great clips and memories. She deserves a big tribute.
February 19, 2010
I love to watch DOOL, and I have for years. I love Frances Reids role as Alice Horton. Wish we all had a loving mother and grandmother like her. I to hope the writer's are going to do a really special tribute to her, she so deserves it. Her and Tom are the one's that have made this soap so enjoyable to watch. They have taught all of the cast to be, the best actors and actress they can be. I was so hoping to get to see her at Mickey's memorial service,I guess she just wasnt up to it. I will miss her both on Day's and in my real life as well. May she rest in peace with her beloved Tom.
February 19, 2010
Frances was my favorite actress on Days. She was like a Mom and Grandmother to me. A great Lady.
February 19, 2010
I grew up watching Ms. Reid on Days. she wasn't only the Matriarch of the Horton family, she was the Matriarch of our family! She is the epidomy of kindness, graciousness, and sincerity.

I grew up in the sixties watching Days of Our Lives.The Horton's Christmas episodes were my favorite. I missed her in the last few years not on the show. She was a great actress and will be truly missed. Hopefully, the writers will have a tribute episode in her honor and memory.
February 19, 2010
I am in my 30's and have been watching days since i was 4 with my grandmother she passed 15 years ago. She always said she wanted to go to California and play cards with Frances well I hope you two are to gather up there playing a game of cards watching over us you will be missed
February 19, 2010
I was shocked to read the memorial at the end of yesterday's episode. I grew up in the sixties watching the show. She was a great actress and I loved the Christmas shows of the Horton's gathering to decorate the tree. I hope the writer's have a tribute episode in her honor.
February 19, 2010
I grew up in the sixties watching Days of Our Lives. I was shocked at the memorial to Francis at the end of yesterday's episode. She was a great actress. My favorite episodes were the Christmas ones of hanging the family ornaments. The Soap industry lost a very talented and loving person.
February 18, 2010
I just found out about Frances Reid's death as well at the end of today's episode and I must say that I am very saddened by her death. She was the only original cast member on the show, but it was also unknown that she did her last show 2007. I could have sworn she was still there doing cameo appearances, but I think everyone mentioned her so much and they did flashbacks, that I thought she was still on the show. I read her bio and I can't believe she had no children. She was so loving and caring on the show, you would think she came by it naturally by having a house full of kids. This lets everyone know how wonderful she was as an actress; she always had the right answer for everyone on the show. Once again, I am very, verysaddened by her death and my prayers are with her family and all of the other "Days" fans.
February 18, 2010
she was a great actress. She was very lovable and caring to everyone on Days of Our Lives. She is going to be missed by everyone on Days of Our Lives.
February 18, 2010
I just learned of the passing of Frances Reid att he end of todays show. My heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

I remember coming home from school in the 60's and watching "Days" with my mom. I grew up watching the Horton's and still to this very day watch "Days" with my own daughter. Frances Reid was a wonderfully talented woman and she will be missed greatly! The Christmas shows were my favorite when the family would hang their ornaments.

My Godmother Celia{deceased for one year} and my Mom got me "hooked" on Days of Our Lives in 1965. I have been a loyal viewer for years.I am so sorry about your loss.

I loved this lady, she was such a wonderful actress. I'm a true fan of Days of Our Lives and I record it everyday, since I'm a working mom. Even though her final appearance was in 2007, she was always spoken off. She will be greatly missed. My condolences to her family.

My deepest sympathy to the family and friends....
Alice Horton, was just like my own grandmother, except my grandma never made donuts. I'm sure that it was her real life that made her able to portray such a wonderful loving person. When they spoke of her this Christmas, I was wondering how she was doing.
Rest in Peace, Frances Reid/Alice Horton, you will be missed

February 10, 2010
I started watching Days when I was around 7 years old, I have been watching it ever since and i am now 46.
I loved Tom and Alice, and they have been missed for quite some time. It looks like Maggie will need to be the new Matriarch, however, I am unsure if her show husband Mickey died on the show or has passed away in real life.
Chirstmas time was always the best on Days, I love the tree ornament decorating and hope that tradition stays on forever. My prayers are with both the Days familys of Frances and her real life families, We were truly blessed by such a wonderful lady and she will be deeply missed.
February 10, 2010
I have watched Day's since the late 60's still be in school I got hooked on it. I loved watching the Horton family, they were the perfect couple. Grandma Horton will be sadly missed by all. She was one of a kind and she could never be replaced. May she rest in peace.
February 10, 2010
I feel as though I have lost a dear friend.She is a lovely lady,and I am glad to have been able to watch her over these years.God has a beautiful angel with Him now.My sympathy to the family. God bless you.

February 10, 2010
I have watched DOOL since the very first episode and I loved watching Alice and Tom Horton, they were the perfect couple; I have missed her very much since she has not appeared on the show and like many others, Christmas was just not the same; I offer my sincere sympathy to the family and will keep her in my prayers; I use to wish I could be like her, everyone loved her and she was a lovely person inside and out; I know she is smiling from above as she is at peace with the Lord.
February 10, 2010

my heart aches,i started watching Days when i was in the 7th grade!I bought a VCR soley to tape Days because when i grew up i Had to work nights!She and Tom were everyone's Grandma/Grandpa!i am very sad at this news.my sympathies to her family.
February 10, 2010
I am so very sorry to hear about "Alice." I raised all five of my children watching Days.And my grandchildren and great grand son also know "most"of the characters.My prayers are with "Both" of her families.
February 10, 2010
Our prayers go out to the Reid family, I would like to express our condolences at this time to your family, I have found the bible to be a source of encouragement; the scripture I would like to share with you is from Revelation 21: 4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
February 10, 2010
As many others have posted here, What a wonderful lady. What amazed me is through all the drama, twisting turns, affairs etc... Mrs. Horton still held onto true values. She could have just as well played on The Walton's. She added a morality to the show which made it much more realistic. I am sure to maintain that meant saying no to writers ideas at times, but somehow I believe she just got the respect she deserved for it and they moved on. You touched so many lives in a positive wonderful way. I know you are strolling streets of gold now and reuniting with fans and loved ones. You're family has truly been blessed to have such a lady in their presence for 95 years.
February 10, 2010
I grew up as a married woman with Alice. I began watching in 1965 and am still an avid fan. I'm saddened by her death but enjoyed watching her over the years. God bless her. She will be missed and is irreplaceable.
February 10, 2010
I have missed her on Days in recent years. Christmas was not the same without Alice on Days! She was a beautiful woman, inside and out. I remember watching her when I was 4 years old, over 40 years ago! I am sorry to hear of her passing and my deepest sympathies go out to her family and her Days family.
February 10, 2010
I grew up loving her and wanting to be the kind of Mother/Grandmother she was to all on Days Of Our Lives. Alice & Tom were the perfect couple. She will be missed.
February 10, 2010
I HAD TO GO AWAY

I had to go away.
I'm sorry you couldn't come with me.
But on earth is where you shall stay.
Please do not be sad.
Instead laugh and be glad.
I'm in a beautiful place, such a beautiful place.
I know you wont see me for a while.
But you will hear from me.
I will be the wind that will chill you on a hot summer day.
I will be the sun that will warm you when it's cold.
Listen to the birds sing, I will be saying, "I love you" in their song.
I know you can't touch me.
But you will feel me.
Because I will be inside of you giving you life on the days you feel like you can't go on anymore.
Please I beg of you, go on, live your life as I lived mine.
Always remember we will be together again.
I will be patiently waiting for you on that day.
When you will join me in this beautiful place.
Until then may God bless you with his almighty grace.

She will surely be missed. I grew up with that show. I remember coming home after school to watch Day's at 2pm with my mother. That was my favorite show and still is today. I will miss her especially at Christmas time when they Horton/Brady family would be surrounded by the tree and each putting their ornament on the tree. It made you feel like you were part of the family. And Dr. Horton always sitting with the sick children reading about Christmas. Those are the things I will miss. God bless your family. May she rest in peace.

February 09, 2010
Please accept my concern during this dark peiod. Sometimes we may feel paralyzed by the loss of a love one. At such times, we need to go to God's word for comfort (2Corinthians 1:3,4): "the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comfort us in all our tribulation."

I grew up watching Days with my mother in the 70's. It would be our mother/daughter time each afternoon. Frances Reid and Macdonald Crary were wonderful influences to the TV world, just like my parents and grandparents were to me about a happy marriage and the struggles one must face throughout a marriage. Prayers are lifted up for her family at such a great loss.
February 09, 2010
A true LADY!! She was the backbone of the TV show. Just the mention of her name, made everything ok. Thanks for keeping her name alive in all the family drama.She is missed and will be missed. That void can never be filled. Prayers and sympathy to her family (real) and on Days! G. Henderson, Texas

I was so sorry to hear of Frances Reid's passing. I have watched Days Of Our Lives for more than 40 years and "Alice Horton" was like everyone's grandmother. My condolences to her family and to her Days family.
February 09, 2010
I started watching DOOL when it first began. "Alice" was always my favorite, the twinkle in her eye told volumes. Ms Reid will be missed but never forgotten. She was a classy lady.
February 09, 2010
I only know Frances Reid through her work on Days of our LIves. I began watching in 1969 after the birth of our first child. Over the years she became my favorite character. Not only did she make donuts but she fought the bad guys with Bo. She has been especially missed at Christmas when the family decorates the Christmas tree. Thank you for many enjoyable hours as Alice. RIP.
February 09, 2010
Francis Reid brought Alice Horton to life on "Days." She emanated that loving and comforting grandmotherly spirit...and as everyone in Salem knew...Alice's doughnuts could make any problem seem to disappear. I always looked forward to her appearances during the holiday episodes when she would reminisce about her beloved "Tom" and the importance of family. She will be truly missed...Condolences to the family.
February 09, 2010
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

She had a long, productive, and interesting life. How wonderful if we could all touch so many people with our work and our spirit that our path to the Other Side would be accompanied by the chorus of prayers that Frances Reid has gotten. That is a life well lived.
February 08, 2010
My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. I loved her on Days of Our Lives. I really used to enjoy her escapades with "Bo & Hope". She is now an angel watching us all as we continue on with the days of our lives! God Bless
February 08, 2010
I am a big fan of Days. My grandmother got me started back in the early 70's, and i haveb't stopped watching it yet. I have always loved the things Alice did on day's. Like when she was on the back of Bo's bike. I will always remember her, and who she was on Days.

i always wanted a grand mother like Mrs. Horton. I was very sad to see she passed away. Days will never be the same . I hope they keep the christmas story going with the both Mr & Mrs Tom Horton.
February 08, 2010
I am so distraught. I have watched Days for over 30 years and thought of Mrs. Horton as another grandmother. I wish to pass on my condolences to her family and to the family at Days.
February 08, 2010
TO HER FAMILY:
I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR OF HER PASSING. I HAVE WATCHED DAYS FOR MANY YEARS. SHE WILL BE MISSED TERRIBLY. I KNOW EVERYONE THAT WORKED WITH HER WILL. SHE WAS SUCH A SPECIAL PERSON. YOU ARE IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.
February 08, 2010
Our thoughts and prayers go to Ms. Reid's family, friends, and the cast of Days of Our Lives. I have watched Days since its inception and my daughter has watched it with me for the last thirty-nine years. We very much enjoyed Alice. She was kind, loving, generous and sometimes mischievious, and always gracious. We are sure her realistic portrayal of Alice could have only come from within. God bless her.

I am so shocked and saddened for the passing of such an amazing woman. There will never be another character like Alice Horton. Francis and MacDonald Cary were 2 of the best on "Days" and the fact that the show still uses MacDonalds voice for the show and follows "Alices" Holiday traditions every year with the christmans balls will always be in my memories. I feel like Frances was a part of my family and I wish my warmest condolences to her family and friends.
God Bless you Frances "Alice Horton" Reid.
You leave a wonderful legacy!!!!!

To Mrs Reids Family and Tv Family,

To the Family of Francis Reid, I grew up watching Days of Our Lives. I remeber sitting on the couch with my Mom and watching. I am 51 now and still watch. I have missed both her and McDonald Carey. The show has not been the same since she hasn't been a regular on it. I'm sure the whole cast will miss Mrs.H (as Beau called her). My prayers go out to each and everyone of you(family and cast family).She will be dearly missed. May God bless you in your hour of need.
February 08, 2010

February 08, 2010
To all of her family and friends, my sympathies for your loss. I grew up watching Days, and still tape it everyday. Alice was everyone's gran. The last few years she hasn't been on camera, but she's always been just in the other room or over at her house making her famous donuts. She will be greatly missed. Goodbye Frances, now you are reunited in Heaven with your Days husband MacDonald Carey.
February 08, 2010
I grew up watching Days of Our Lives! I still do! I am so sad to hear the she has passed! She made the show so much more like family! Especially the holiday shows and the baking the donuts and her and Hope always having talks while having them. She will be missed and the holidays won't be the same!

How sad that DAYS will be without the honorable "Alice." She will be missed by all. I often wondered how she was, because the last few times that she was on the show, she was in a wheelchair. What a good life she lived! God Bless her family and friends.
February 08, 2010
To Your Family,
I grew up with Days of Our Lives and I felt like it was part of my life. I still talk about the Christmas ornaments with the name on each one. You were such a loving and forgiving family. You always worked through tough times together.

I will miss Frances Reid so much on Days of our Lives. She was such a warm wonderful character.

My warmest sympathy to her family and friends.

Frances Reid was like a rare gem, one that I looked forward to seeing whenever it was possible. I hadn't seen her shine on DAYS in a while now, but certainly never forgot her. She will be truly missed by her many longtime fans, we all loved her. I first started watching DAYS when I was just a young girl in the early 70's and "Alice" was always one of my very favorite charactors. God is good & HE blessed Frances Reid with many DAYS, and in so doing we were all blessed as well.
February 08, 2010
I feel like I just lost my own Gran. Frances Reid's "Alice Horton" is so much like my Gran and I have been watching the show for over 30 years. We have laughed and cried with her she has touched our hearts for so many years. She will be greatly missed by all. Rest in peace "Gran" My prayers & heart go out to the families.

I have been a fan of DOOL since it began. I even hooked my mother, 2 daughters and my granddaughter on it, so we were a 4 generation DOOL family until my own mother's death last January. Frances Reid was an icon and I can only hope that NBC will keep her memory alive as they hav McDonald Carey's. When Christmas was moved to Bo's and Hope's house this year, I felt like it must be near the end for Frances. My condolences and my thanks go out to her family for sharing her with the world all these years.

It's a sad thing when a member of your family dies and Frances Reid was a member of many families (at least in our minds). She has been missed a lot by her fans since leaving the show Days of our Lives. God has a special place for her and so do we. A #1 fan.

As a follower of Days for many years, I am saddend to loose one of our better actors. Her role set a good example for all. In this world of trials and tribulations the younger viewers need story lines which display good examples of life. She will be missed. Alice, Pennsylvania

R.I.P. Frances you will be sadly missed. I loved watching you on DOOL'S
February 07, 2010
I watched from the very first "DAYS" in 1965. She was the strength of the show! She will be missed.
February 07, 2010
You will be sadly missed Mrs.H
February 07, 2010
Enjoyed her work and all the parts she played. Followed her when ever there was a chance. Missed from the role she created, I hope the show will continue to refer to her in their story as it goes to the future. To her many friends and relatives, condolences to you all.
February 07, 2010
God speed, Frances! I have watched Days since 1969 and always loved the Christmas show the most. Gran was a truly amazing and kind lady.
February 07, 2010
Frances Reid ( Gran ) was a wonderful actress and my idea of what a grandmother was supposed to be. I loved her way of thinking and the traditions she had while on Days! I do love the way that Days has been able to incorporate her name, even though her final appearances ended. Gran Horton was the "Go to one" She just always seemed to know the right things to say and advice to give.

To my way of thinking, Mrs H was grace personified! I loved the way she spoke of her beloved Tom. For over 40 years they were all family!

God Rest Her Soul! She will be missed!

Janet ( Tampa Bay Florida )
February 07, 2010
So sorry to hear of this great loss. She was truly a beautiful person and will be missed. I am sure the whole cast of Days will be mourning. Sympathy goes out to her family. Linda, Penna.

February 07, 2010
The passing of Frances Reid is like losing a cherished member of the family. I've watched Days of Our Lives for years and "Mrs. H" was everyone's "Gran". The family get togethers during the holidays were always my favorite and it was their tradition of the Christmas ornaments that got me started doing that as well. I hope that Days of Our Lives gives her passing the respect that she so richly deserves. Rest in peace Mrs. H.
February 07, 2010
God Bless Ms. Reid...Thanks
February 07, 2010
She may have moved on to heaven but she will never be forgotten. I too have watched Days for many years and always enjoyed her.

Our hearts and prayers are with your family

I've watched Days since I was in High School, even when my friends were watching Dark Shadows, etc. "Mrs H" set the standard for daytime TV. She was everything a mom and Grandma should be, and I want to be just like her, forever. I am sure the cast will never be able to fill her void and TV has lost a phenomenal actress. She will be missed.

She is going to be missed by many....including me very much. God Bless her and her family. I love you.

February 06, 2010
I have watched Days since its inception. Even when I lived in Germany with my husband who was in the army, my mom used to write me letters keeping me updated on what was happening on"our story". Then when I couldn't watch when back in the states I used to use my cassette tape player to record the show so my young daughters could listen when they got home from school. This was before VCRs.Frances has been a perfect role model to me and she will forever be in my heart. I wish the media would expand on her family history though, and I also send my sympathy to her family as well as the Days family. I know they are heart broken. I knew she must be in failing health as she wasn't seen anymore but I miss her!

May I please offer my deepest condolences on your loss. No one knows how you feel, however, God knows.

(Psalm 86:7) Yes, the God of all comfort will give you the courage and the strength to cope during this difficult time.

Mrs. Horton was truly a very gracies lady. I will always remember her "Donuts." Dover, De.

February 05, 2010
I started watching Francis on "Days of our Lives" in 1965 when I was 11 yrs. old. My mom watched everyday and I was hooked from the first time I watched. Frances and Tom were the "backbone" of this show. They both were the perfect example of what a married couple should be and they always were the definition of class and dignity. Frances, your beautiful smile and humor will be missed. You have certainly earned your angel wings. Rest in peace dear,sweet lady.
February 05, 2010
I am 39 and have been watching " Days Of Our Lives" since I was 5 years old. You will be missed . Rest In Peace.
February 05, 2010
Mrs. H, Alice, Gran, what can I say. I love Days and we loved you. You were everyone's grandmother. God Bless You.

How very strange life is. I was just cleaning out my file cabinet, and came across a copy of
* A recipe for Alice's Famous cake Doughnuts* that I had copied from Days of our lives, in 2002 and was thinking about all the times she made them.
Then when I finished I turned on the computer to find her picture and story that she had just passed. I am a fan from day one, and eighty years old, and still watch every day, and know that the cast will all be so sad at her passing and she will live on in the hearts of all who loved her.
My sympathy to all her family, and know that God was waiting there with open arms to welcome her.
Rest In Peace dear Frances, It was wonderful to know you.

so sorry to heard of ms. reid's passing. i have watched "DAYS" since the very first day. she was a wonderful actress. she will be very much missed! (ALTO< GEORGIA)
February 05, 2010
I am 45 and started watching Days with my mom when I was about 7 or 8 and I'm still watching. I am so saddened to hear of Frances Reid's death. This past Christmas was just not the same without her sitting in her chair, looking at the picture of Tom & watching her family hang their special ornaments. Both of my own grandmothers were diagnosed with breast cancer when I was a baby, and I didn't get to spend very many Christmases with them, so this was a special 'tradition' that I looked forward to every year. After just seeing the storyline with Mickey dying, it just broke my heart and now I do hope they do a special story for Grandma Horton. She will be missed. My prayers to both her real family and her TV family.
February 05, 2010
you will be missed by all. GOD bless you.
February 05, 2010
Sorry To The Family on and off tv have missed Frances will miss her more knowing she is gone have watched Days all my life my mother got me watching when I was a Kid she was the ideal mother and grandmother I just always Thought she didn't play a part, that was just the way she was goodbye my TV friend wished I had known her in person
February 05, 2010
Like Sands Through The Hour Glass So Are The Days of Our Lives I'm 48 and I have watched Days of Our Lives since around 1966 when I was 5 years old. Mrs. Horton has always been like another Grandmother to me. When I woke up this morning, I had a message from a FaceBook friend. It simply said: "We've lost Frances Reid." I cried and cried like a baby. Frances was never Alice to me, but always Mrs. Horton, the Lady with the biggest heart in Salem! I never will forget all of the Christmas Memories with the ornaments and Bill, Mickey, Maggie, Marie, Addie, Tommy, Julie, Doug, Hope, and your beloved Tom, Dr. Horton. It may sound silly, but over the years, the Hortons have become like a second family to me. Days of Our Lives will never be the same without you Sweet Frances! I have a Hour Glass on my coffee table and everytime I see the sand tumble through it, I will think of you. Good Bye Mrs. Horton! We Love You!-Michael
February 05, 2010
I watched the first episode of DOOL and have loved Alice Horton ever since. My condolences to her family. She will be truly missed.
February 05, 2010
I started watching DOOL when it first came on in 1965, I was 14 years old. I got hooked. Then in 1978 I signed up for a trip to Greece and Frances Reid was on that same tour. I managed to get to know her and we became friends. I would visit her in her lovely home and send her birthday cards along with flowers every year. When I got married in 1990 she attended my wedding, I was thrilled. And we continued to keep in touch. I'd visit her in the assisted care facility, and even at 94 she was still spry, a little forgetful but she didn't forget me. I will never forget her, may you rest in peace my friend. Love you,
February 05, 2010
Rest In Pece

Alice was a great Actress on Days. A true Legend she will remain. She played her part in keeping family together. There should be more like her character in the world today. She has been and will be truly missed. My sister and I have been watching her for the past 35 years or more. So did my mother who passed on in 1994 so maybe she and Alice will finally cross paths. My mother was a faithful Days viewer as well.
February 05, 2010
I have been watching Days for at least fifteen years, and Alice was always the backbone for her family. Everyone goes to her for good advice. I will miss her dearly. May God receives her with open arms, and blesses her soul.
February 05, 2010
My Daughter and I watch Days everyday. We'll miss you Alice.

We are deeply saddened with the passing of Frances. She made Days of Our Lives my daily ritual. Have missed her on the show and was sad to see she wasn't on the holiday shows on Days. We have lost a great actress and person. Thank you for letting us share in your talents for all your years on Days.
February 05, 2010
I cried every year when the Christmas ornaments were put on that tree...What an amazing lady. My grandmother and I used to watch the show before I went to Kindergarden...a very sad loss for all that follow daytime soaps.
February 05, 2010
Frances Reid (Alice Horton) was a lady of class. She made DOOL by her tender voice. Their will never ever be another Grand as Alice Horton. Hanging of the Christmas ornaments was special, regardless of what was going on in the family, they all came to grans house. I pray that DOOL with honor her as a legend of this story. May she rest in peace, because she was everyones grandmother.

Family be strong, she was one of a kind.
February 05, 2010
Been a fan of Days of our Lives, for many, many, years.

February 05, 2010
Daytime TV has lost one classy lady. We share the same birth date and couldn't think of someone else I would rather share it with. Since I lost my Gran's very early in life, I kind of adopted her, she was the best and will be missed by her family, her tv family and her fans that considered her their Gran.
February 05, 2010
Beautiful lady, a class act. Rest in peace.
February 05, 2010
You were always there for me growing up,of course along with my mom.And those were the Days of our lives.Goodnight Frances and heaven just gained another angel
February 05, 2010
Ms. Reid was elegant, warm and a wonderful actresss. She made viewers of Days feel like their own mother, grandmother and friend. Her absence on the show left a void in the plot. May she rest in peace, she will never be forgotten." Like sand in the hour glass, so our the days of our lives"
February 05, 2010
My mom and I started from the very 1st show that aired. Mrs. Horton help made the show a success with her wonderful personality and wisdom. My mom gone and I am 72 now and still watches DOOL. She will be missed. My heart goes out to her Family. She in a good place now.

February 05, 2010
I have watched Days since it came on TV many years ago, and remember Tom and Alice fondly. I remember the time Alice baked her famous doughnuts, and smuggled them into the jail to Bo, when he was arrested. You always thought of Alice as somebody's Grandmother, and she will be mised by many of the cast members. Rest in peace, Grandma Horton.
February 05, 2010
I remember you in the scene, where you used the doughnuts for the jail break and drove the get away car. I loved the Christmas tradition of hanging the family ornaments. She has been missed and will always be missed. Linda Hanover, Pa.
February 05, 2010
What a great lady she was...so graceful, kind, caring and gentle. DOOL was the only soap I ever watched. She held my interest...the way she touched everyone's life. She will be sadly missed by everyone who knew her personally and by those of us that knew of her via the television. With my deepest sympathy.

February 05, 2010
It is a great loss in losing Alice(Frances). She was a person to admire. Her donunts were always somekind of a life saver for the show. Have missed her dearly since she was no longer able to be on the show. Was so glad that when she first became ill, she was still part of the show and using a walker. Thats part of life.
Have watched the show from day one.
February 05, 2010
Daytime has lost its finest lady. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who knew this wonderful lady.

February 05, 2010
As I read about Frances Reid tears streamed down my face. I started watching her with my mother when I was a young girl. My mother died at an early age.I will never forget us curled up on the couch with chips,soads blankets and don't even think about calling the house "Days is on got to go"! I loved Day of our Lives so many memories will go with this sweet dear lady who seemed like family to me
February 05, 2010
OMG what a sad loss this is, While I like many others stopped watching DOOL years ago, Fances Reid WAS the backbone and glue that held the show to the stanards it once was, my heart goes out to her famaily in this time of sadness and great loss, my hope is that she's smiling down on them from above, and that Macdonald Carrey (Tom) was there on the side to greet her with a huge hug and some flowers. May she RIP she was an amazing woman and such a gift to what was once the days of our lives! Hugs out to her fam, our loss is our loss too, we loved her a great deal to!
February 05, 2010
i have been watching days for 35 years and she has been a big part of the reason i watch it.. she will be missed..
February 05, 2010
I cried when Mickey Horton died and I know I will be crying even harder when they begin to talk about Alice dying. I have loved the show since as long as I can remember. I began watching it during the summers with my mom and would hate to go back to school when it started back up because I was missing my favorite show. My 8 year old autistic son came in the living room last week when Days was on and saw Bo and Hope talking. He immediately knew what show I was watching. The family tradition continues. I wish that the show would come out on DVD so that I could watch it from the beginning and see them when they were younger.
February 05, 2010
Like sands through the hourglass so go the days of our lives............
As I wipe a tear away, it feels like I lost my grandma. I have Grandma Horton's donut recipe that I will always treasure. She's been apart of my life since the 1965 beginning. Rest in Peace dear lady!
February 05, 2010
We will all miss you my prayers are with the family. I have been watching since Day's started
February 05, 2010
I hope they do a storyline on her death on DOOL. My sister & I have been watching since day 1 when it was 1/2 hr long show with our own grannie. I think that is why we still watch today. It makes me think of the 1/2 hr and then hour each day we spent with my grannie. An era of the Horton clan has passed. I missed her Xmas segment hanging the ornaments this year............
February 05, 2010
I HAVE BEEN WATCHING DAYS OF OUR LIVES SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL. I WAS SADDENED TO HEAR OF THE PASSING OF FRACES REID, SHE INDEED WAS A BEAUTIFUL AND CLASSY LADY.

Love you all... Karen, St. Louis, Missouri

I am a faithful "Days" watcher having never missed an episode since its conception. Her family is just like my own. Mrs. H. will forever be in my mind and in my heart. She was one tough cookie. My favorite memory was when she dressed in leathers for Dr. Horton. She will be missed.
February 05, 2010
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
February 05, 2010
I started watching days as a child. I feel like I have lost a member of my family. She will be truly missed on the show. What a terrible loss for her on & off air family, but oh what a gain for Heaven! Rest in Peace Gramma Horton!

February 05, 2010
I just loved Frances Reid - she was my alltime favorite TV actress as she played Alice/Grandma Horton. My cousin was visiting recently and his son remembered that years ago I was the one who got his father "hooked" on Days... She was a beautiful, lovely person.
February 05, 2010

God Bless You, Frances Reid. Such a beautiful person inside and out. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends. I hope DOOL honors her with a show showing her talent and love. I think the people on and off screen of Days will need this closure. And I know the fans would too!
February 05, 2010
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
February 05, 2010
So sorry to hear about her death. She was such a staple in my life growing up, as my grandmother LOVED Days. Can't remember a summer vacation w/o some form of Alice Horton being part of it! :-) She will be missed.
February 05, 2010
It saddens me to hear Ms Reid has passed away. It is strange how we attach ourselves to people even though they never know we exist. I'm sure Ms Reid was as wonderful a lady as her counterpart Alice (Grandma) Horton. I extend my sympathy, thoughts and prayers to all her "real life" family.
February 05, 2010
I have watched Ms Reid since Days Of Our Lives ever appeared when i was just 18 i loved all the Horton's now they are going away i hope they honor her with a flash back show devoted to her,
RIP Go With God

February 05, 2010
I can remember that I started watching DOOL when I was 7 years old (I am 46 now). Not an episode goes by that you would not think "Alice Horton" a.k.a Mrs. H. She played such an awesome and dynamic character, that watching the show was a real life touching treat. Thank you for sharing her with the DOOL family....may God bless you and give you strength during this tough time. “ She will be missed so very much..”

To Grandma Horton's family and tv family I am very sorry to hear of the loss of such a great person. My grandmother got me started on Days as a child. When we would come in from the tobacco field for lunch she had the stories on I grew up on Days, The Doctors and Another World but Days was my favorite. My prayers are with you in this time. GOD is with you all and is glad to have his beautiful angel home.
February 05, 2010
My day is not complete until I have watched Days of our Lives. I had a feeling Frances (Alice) was not well because they haven't shown her in a very long time. Her fans will miss her forever and look forward to the times there will be reruns of her and her beloved Tom.
45 years of being a fan of this program and many more to go I pray.
Rest in peace, Alice Horton. You already are missed.
February 05, 2010

February 05, 2010
I loved this lady as Alice Horton. She was such a sweet soul as a parent, grandparent and great grandparent. She was a role model for all of us, not only on parenting, but how to be a lady and a lovely one she was.
Thanks for the memories, Frances Reid!

When I was a little girl (in the 1960s), my sister and I would sit in our mom's lap in a rocking chair in front of the tv. We were sworn to silence for the 30 minutes of Days of Our Lives. Alice and Tom were both a part of our day. Rest in piece, Ms. Reid.
February 05, 2010

To Mrs. Reid's family and the Days of Our Lives family:

I too have watched Days since the beginning and some of the stores between Alice and Tom were my very favorites. They were the true "heart" of this show and I am deeply saddened to know we will never see her sweet face and gentle smile. But she could crack the whip with the best of them when someone got out of line! I loved that about her.
May God bless all of you, both her real wife family and our DOOL family, may He give you love and peace beyond all understanding and may she rest in His loving arms.
February 05, 2010

February 05, 2010
I started watching Days Of Our Lives as a young child. I had seen different ones come and go but you always knew that Mrs. Horton would awlays be there for her Days family. She always welcomed everyone with a hug and a kiss...with a plate full of her delicious doughnuts. What a lovely lady....she was the heart & soul of the show. My deepest sympathy goes to her family and her Days Of Our Lives Family.
February 05, 2010
Not only was Frances Reid a great actress, but she was a beautiful woman. "Alice" had a special part in my heart as the matriarch on Days. Thank you to her family for sharing her with her fans. She will never be replaced and will be greatly missed.
February 05, 2010
"Alice" was the most inspirational woman. Days will not be the same without her there to dispense her wisdom to her family and friends. I have watched Days for so long and feel that it will never be the same without the matriach of the Horton Family. She is and always will be the life and soul of the Hortons. Frances was an amazing actress who really bought "Alice" to life. She will be missed and my prayers are with both her family and fellow cast members. xxx
February 05, 2010
she was a wonderful actress.i loved to see her on days of our lives.she was like a grandmother to me.i will miss seeing her.to the family i'm so sorry for your loss.
February 05, 2010
My deepest condolences are with you at this time of need. Know that god feels your pain as well. Go to him in prayer and he will comfort you very much.
February 05, 2010
I have been a "Days of Our Lives" fan since 1969- Frances Reid is one of the reasons-her role as 'Alice' seemed to epitomize the elegance, wisdom and class of the woman and actress, Frances Reid, herself. Her presence has been missed on 'Days' as has her smile and spirit been missed by fans and friends throughout the TV industry and America's living rooms.

Blessings and comfort to her family and friends in this time of their sorrow and loss. May 'Alice' Frances Reid be remembered as the woman and actress whose genuine personal spirit immortalized one of the truly iconic roles on daytime TV that elevated our civility, reflected our family ideals and celebrated life in fantasy and in truth for American viewers.
We miss you, Frances! We miss you, Alice!
February 05, 2010
Thank you for being the lady you were on and off TV.. I remember when you began the show this turned out to be my favorite.. You were great in alll ways on and off TV.. Thank you for showing me how wonderful you were and will be again.. hugs and God Bless always.. you deserve the best.
February 05, 2010
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
February 05, 2010
OH My I can't believe We've lost such a great actress. Days has come along way and will surely be different with alot of the origianl cast gone! My grandmother and mother got me into watching DAYS when I was a little girl and continue to keep up. Even with my busy schedule If I can't watch it during the day I catch up online. We will surely miss Alice and the rest of the crew that has also passed on! Hopefully the show will continue for a long time! LOVING DAYS FAN!!!!!!!

My grandmother used to watch "Days" when she babysat me as a young child. I used to fake sick at school so I could come home early and watch it with her. The original cast was the best and Alice Horton was such a wonderful lady. Her personality just resonated love. My condolences go out to her family. Remember that god blessed you for many years with her presence in your lives.

I remember going to my grandmothers house when I was a child and seeing my Aunt watching Days Of Our Lives. That famous hourglass! Then years later in the middle or late 90's I started watching it.

I've watched days of our lives from the beginning, Alice Reid (Frances Horton) was an inspiration to me, she will be deeply missed. I wished I could have tasted one of her donuts. Alice and Tom were the heart of Days of our Lives and a true meaning of what relationships should be like. I pray for her family members and cast members. The show won't be the same without Alice. I will always remember the horton family hanging the ornaments on the christmas tree, that is a very special part of the show because of the memories they all have as a family. I will continue to watch the program and alice you will always have a warm place in my heart.

For All Those Who Loved Frances:

Frances was such a classy lady. So pretty with gentle, captivating acting skills. I admired her on Days and saw her as the only person who brought wisdom and compassion into the TV family. What a STAR!!!!

I was thoroughly impressed with her two short appearances (cameo) last year while with Maggie on scene.

Frances....a real actress, a class act, a very beautiful woman with grace and style. Loved her and have been watching Days since it began. I have been growing old along with her.
No one could ever take her place. She leaves behind a precious legacy.
WOW... Frances sure had a long life!! The Lord blessed her for all she gave to others. Simply Wonderful....the last true actress.

I only hope, along with many others, that the producers and directors of Days will find a "REAL" lady, like her...well, as close as possible, to continue to bring some stability to the Days show.

With Sympathy and Prayers,
A True Fan:

Days of Our Lives is the only soap that I have followed since the beginning. The Horton family always felt like my own family and the passing of Frances Reid is like my own Grandmother passing away.

What a beautiful and gracious lady Frances Reid was and she will be missed by all of us faithful "Days" fans.

My sincere sympathies go out to her family and friends and to her TV family. The Horton family of Salem has lost their matriarch and we have lost a truly wonderful friend.
February 04, 2010
I have watched "Days of Our Lives" for almost 40 years. Grandma Horton was the grandmother everybody would want as their own. Frances Reid played the part beautifully. I have missed not seeing her for a few years now, but at 95 I believe she was blessed with as much a life as you could ever hope for. I always wanted to try one of her donuts! What a lovely lady she was.

To the Family of Frances Reid,

I am so sorry for the loss of such a classy lady like Mrs.Reid. The many wonderful stories she must have told over the years, must have been amazing.

At a difficult time like this the Bible can be so comforting. Take the thought at Psalms 34:18-"God is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves."

You can think that Death can leave a heartache that nothing can heal, jsut know that Love can leave a memory that no one can steal.

From a Stranger who truly cares.
February 04, 2010
Dear Reid Family,

I have watched Days Of Our Lives since early 1966 and have loved the Hortons and The Bradys all these years. My own grandmother got me to watch the show before she died in 1966. Alice Horton was a beloved character with her home made donuts and cookies and so like our own mothers. Frances will be greatly missed. In the recent episodes of Mickey's death she was mentioned but not seen and I was hoping she would show. It seems so ironic that she should pass away so close to her "son's" death. I know the show will do justice to her memory and we fans will all have a good cry over our beloved Alice's death.

Thank you Frances for coming into our lives for so many years. May you be in heaven with "Tom" and we fans will never forget you for all the Days Of Our Lives.
February 04, 2010
I have watched "Grandma Alice" since I was a little girl on Days. She will be a huge loss to the cast and our world. Loved her simple and elegant presence. May you rest in the arms of our Lord now!
February 04, 2010
I have watched Days of our lives when it started in 1965, And I am still watching it today. I loved it when Mrs. H had the hanging of the christmas balls at the Horton house & how they always had memories of Tom being there. She will be missed so much. My thoughts & prayers to the Reid family. God bless you Alice Horton (Frances Reid) God needed another angel & he picked a great one.
February 04, 2010
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Crossing the Bar

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.

February 04, 2010
I have watched Days Of Our Lives since 1982. Alice was my favoriteI also loved the Christmas Specials and the family ornaments. It will not be the same without the "matriarch" of the family. I loved her and McDonald Carey. They will both be missed deeply.
February 04, 2010
I've been watching Days of Our Lives since the 70's. I always loved the days when Alice would make an appearance. She was just everyone's grandmother. God bless you, Frances.
February 04, 2010
I have watched this gracious and beautiful lady since the first episode of DAYS in 1965. I have no words to describe the feeling I had when seeing the announcement. My heartfelt sympathy and peace to the family. Frances Reid, as Alice Horton became like a family member to all of the fans who have watched her through the years. I have watched everyday possible, moving to 5 different states and continue to watch even today at age 69. The members of the DAYS family become like surrogate family. (I began watching at age 25 with two small babies}.

In the world of acting, she will be greatly missed, but to her fans, she will ascend to heaven and receive her reward for encouraging all of us to find the right path and do the right things in life..
I will miss her bright smile.

February 04, 2010
She will be greatly missed, I loved her antics on the show when Bo and Hope were young, she as a joy to watch. I know the show will treat her passing with all the respect she deserves as they did MacDonald Carey. And I know that is one episode that I'll not get through without tears.

Oh I just lover her she was just a gracious lady on the show so family oriented, reminded me so much of my own mama and how she raised us and her grandchildren. Even thought she hasn't been on the show these last 3 years she surely will be missed by the cast and all who loved her...
My prayers to her family. I am sure that "Tom" was waiting for her too to catch up on all that has been going on in Salem. Rest in peace Sweet Alice....
February 04, 2010
She will always be remembered for her love of family and making them special treats, like doughnuts. She was a true matriarch of the Horton Family.

What a joy to watch her play "Gran" on Days. I've missed her for a while, especially the Christmas episodes. She seemed to truly love what she was doing and everyone she interacted with on the show. Rest in peace, Gran.

At one time, I was a viewer of Days of Our Lives. Alice Horton was one of my favorite characters. Alice always had such good advice for family and friends, and she was such a lady. Alice and Tom Horton raised such a beautiful family, and they were such a cute and loving couple. One would think they were married in real life. Frances Reid will be greatly missed
February 04, 2010
omg! I cannot believe Alice is gone. I have watched that show for 30+ years and Alice was always there. That show will never be the same. My prayers go out to her and her family. You will be greatly missed Francis. You are greatly loved.
February 04, 2010
I have been watching days since I was 5 yrs old, with my mom, now I'm 47, she was such a wonderful lady, she made watching days memorable, she was always the grandmother everyone wanted. She will truely be missed. My condolences to her family.
February 04, 2010
A true Horton is how I will remember her watching Days of Our Lives since I was about 12 ..... I think the 80's were the best story lines when Bo & Hope were young and her grandma there......I like all the original cast members.....My sympthy goes out to the Reid Family...May God Watch Over Our Angel in Heaven....

How very strange life is. I was just cleaning out my file cabinet, and came across a copy of
* A recipe for Alice's Famous cake Doughnuts* that I had copied from Days of our lives, in 2002 and was thinking about all the times she made them.
Then when I finished I turned on the computer to find her picture and story that she had just passed. I am a fan from day one, and eighty years old, and still watch every day, and know that the cast will all be so sad at her passing and she will live on in the hearts of all who loved her.
My sympathy to all her family, and know that God was waiting there with open arms to welcome her.
Rest In Peace dear Frances, It was wonderful to know you.

Thank you Francis, for all the years of great entertainment. The world could use more like you. I have been watching since I was a little girl (4yrs. old) on my momma's lap. That was the early 70's and I literally grew up with you and the cast. The line up at the time was... The Doctor's, Then Days and then Another World. It's been many years since I've been able to catch the show but your face pops to mind as the sweetest character of the soap world. My sympathies go out to you loved ones and all those who will miss you.

I've been a Days of Our Lives viewer and fan for 40 years. Frances Reid's character, Alice, has always been my favorite on the show. In recent years I've missed all the heart to heart conversations that took place in Alice's kitchen over freshly made doughnuts. And of course Alice and Tom were icons. My thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends, and fans of this beloved woman. Her life brought joy to many and she is irreplaceable in our hearts.

I began watching DooL as a young child with my grandmother, probably about the time it first began on the air. Frances Reid was such a graceful lady and I grew up appreciating the message of family roots and the importance of the matriarch role in our real lives. Like "Tom", "Alice" will fondly live in our memories! My sympathies to her loved ones for their loss and thanks for sharing her with all of us.

February 04, 2010
She was indeed a paragon of a grandmother. I have been keeping up with "Days" since 1963 when I first graduated from college. She and Tom were raising Julie who was a rebellious teenager. Susan Martin was (gasp) pregnant with an illegitimate baby, and Bill and Laura were about to embark on an affair! As a grandmother myself now, I wish I could remain as steadfast and calm as she always did in any crisis. We fans will miss her.

I have been watching "Days of Our Lives" off and on for a very long time. The character of Alice Horton portrayed by Frances Reid was one of my favorites. I was honored to see Frances and some of the other actors in person in New Orleans when they came to shoot some scenes for the show at the '84 World's Fair.
May our memories of Frances help us all get through this rough time and be a blessing to her family.

I have been watching her on Days of Our Lives for years now. She was what made the show the success it is. She will definitely be missed greatly. My sympathy goes out to her family and friends during this trying time.
February 04, 2010
i have watched this show since 1979 - the summer of my jr. high. while i have missed some years since then, i have totally watched for the last 30 years. i hate dating myself. Alice was ALWAYS a part of the family history - and when her TV husband died, it was so sad, but nice he kept doing the hour glass break (vocieover). May she please rest in peace. my heart goes out ot the Family of Frances Reid and the cast of Days.
February 04, 2010
She gave great joy & comfort to many of our lives. many condolences to her family. May God keep you close. All our love.

I am 49 next month. My mom watched Days when I was little and I remember watching it. Later in years I got back into watching it. It was nice to have a couple (Tom and Alice) on the show that stayed true to each other. I recently tried to email Days website wondering about how Frances was doing. She has been missed on the show and will continue to be missed by fans and fellow actors.

I have been watching Days of Our Lives for over 47 years. Over the years I watched and learned so much from Grandma Horton (Alice). She is the wisest person I know. Her spirituality is steady and gave hope to all who watched her. She had a heart of gold. She always did and said the right thing at the right time. She was an excellent actress. I wish I could have had an opportunity to meet her in person. Such a great lady! She will be very much missed. Days will no longer be the same without her; how could it be;sigh.
February 04, 2010
My first memory of Days is Bo, Hope, Patch and Kayla playing around a huge waterfountain. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to Frances' family.
February 04, 2010

Ms Reid, I will never forget the kindness that you and your husband extended to me when I was trying to "MAKE IT" on Broadway in the late 50s.
February 04, 2010
Oh, Miss Reid, you played Alice Horton with such love and tenderness! I haven't watched "Days..." in quite a while, but your presence will be felt in "Salem" for many a year! Rest in peace, my dear!

Her spirit and her amazing radiance will live on through Days of Our Lives. She was a beautiful lady and played her character, Alice Horton with grace and elegance. She will be missed.
February 04, 2010
I watched the very first episode of Days and was amazed by Ms. Reid. She was a true lady throughout all of the years on the show. She was certainly an inspiration to all women throughout the world with such style and grace not to mention great tips on raising a happy family. We will all miss her very much, especially her Christmas tradition which by the way was started in my own family many years ago. Please know that I will keep her in my heart and all of my thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family on and off the screen. She will be with us forever.
February 04, 2010
Days of Our Lives will never be the same. She will be missed by all of the grandmothers who watched and learned.
February 04, 2010
What an icon!!! I can remember as a little girl, my mother watching 'Days". Alice Horton was always picture perfect and a role model of everything positive and good. I love the fact that she and Tom never let the public change the fact they loved God and wasnt afraid to speak up. She will be missed and I hope they keep her memory and standards alive. God bless her family they have truely lost an ANGEL....
