He made plans to honor her right away and finally we’ll see how DOOL will honor her. Although sad, the way to proceed was to have the character of Caroline Brady also pass away. However, with the show taping six to seven months ahead, the farewell story arc wouldn’t be ready to air until now. So, the heartwarming tribute to Caroline Brady and the actress who portrayed her will air this summer on the NBC soap.

Although not on canvas, her presence was surely felt on Days of Our Lives. She’s often referenced by her children, usually in the form of a phone conversation they shared. Caroline Brady was the glue that held her family together. Furthermore, most times, only she was able to get through to her troubled family members. So no doubt her death will leave a void in the hearts and lives of all. The actress suffered poor health, so that might have kept her off the DOOL set. But her family mentioned her often and her presence was always felt.
