Days of Our Lives Head Writer Dena Higley recently posted a blog where she pays tribute to the recently deceased James E. Reilly.
As for other events of note, I'd like to mention the passing of Jim Reilly. He was, and will always remain, an amazing force behind the history of DAYS. I was lucky enough to write for him during the "Buried Alive" storyline--one of my favorites. Of course, I think he will most be remembered for having Marlena act completely out of character when she was possessed and then again when she was a serial killer. Two very popular and successful storylines. Jim's imagination was crazy and it was an adventure working for him. He will be missed by the entire daytime community.
Dena also gives a shout out to EJami fans, imploring them to "hang in there for the long haul". Must be getting a lot of hatemail lately. Keep it up EJami fans!
