Where they took their time to tell a story without repeating the lines ad nauseam like they have been for the past decade. McDonald Carey was like the father, grandfather and friend we all wanted or even had. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon March 23, 2013 Days’ fans were lucky enough to be able to bask in the light of this man’s wise, gentle, fatherly presence for close to 30 years before his passing. We will always miss Macdonald Carey and Dr. Tom Horton. Log in to Reply missmuffett41 March 23, 2013 He is surely missed. I cried when he passed away. Macdonald Carey was like a member of my family.

That scene where they declared their love for each other yet once again, was so touching. You could see the great affection both of the had for the other. And a shout out to Jason47 who has one of the best sites for daytime. It is only about Days but it is so full of information! Jamey thanks for posting this. Too often the roots of our shows are forgotten or seldom spoken of. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
