Get out those hankies. One of the most beloved traditions in soaps, the decorating of the Horton Christmas tree on Days of Our Lives, will be a lot less cheerful this year due to the death of two major family members. Mickey, last played by Kevin Dobson, was killed off by the writers in January. Then grande dame Alice passed away in June, several months after the death of actress Frances Reid, who portrayed the feisty matriarch since Days debuted in 1965. But Salem's premiere clan is determined to press on and make the best of the holidays. TV Guide Magazine got the scoop from Melissa Reeves, who recently returned to Days after a four-year absence as Alice's granddaughter Jennifer Rose.

TV Guide Magazine fired some burning questions at Sorel, who seems just as mystified about this kooky plot as we are! ...
Warning: This performance may contain a trace of nut. When Days of Our Lives needed someone to play the funeral director at a pet cemetery, they handed the part to French Stewart.
