BELOW: In this scene from episode #
3628, which aired on March 7, 1980, Tom and Alice celebrate their 50th
wedding anniversary, and the Hortons sing "Always", which was Tom and Alice's
favorite song. Bill Hayes is credited as a writer in this special episode.
Singing, in order of appearance, are: Bill Hayes (Doug), Patty Weaver (Trish),
Richard Guthrie (David), John Clarke (Mickey), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie), Wesley
Eure (Mike), Suzanne Zenor (Margo), Edward Mallory (Bill), Rosemary Forsyth
(Laura), Natasha Ryan (Hope), John Lupton (Tommy), Lanna Saunders (Sister
Marie), and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie). The song concludes with Macdonald
Carey (Tom) and Frances Reid (Alice) singing the last verse. The scene ends with
a picture of Tom and Alice on their wedding day (which were actually pictures of
Macdonald Carey and Frances Reid from their real-life wedding days from the
1940s). Tom and Alice were married on March 7, 1930 and stayed together for 64
years until Tom's death in June, 1994. Please note: This scene is from March
1980. John Lupton (Tommy), who was thought to have made his final appearance in
1979, returned for this special event, and this may be Lupton's (and Tommy's)
final episode ever on "Days."
