    Alan Spaulding's Funeral

    I am so thankful that the writers "let" Alan be the good guy at the end. I loved those scenes with he and Philip..show might have lasted if we had writing like that the last couple of years and all these great actors back with decent S/L (except for the stupid Nat/Oliva thing - gag time). Anyway, class act for Alan but writers still think we are stupid - they could have at least mentioned why Amanda and Alan Michael did not return for their father's funeral. Good bye to a great soap that in recent years has been very painful to watch - such awful S/L. Great ending. I now have to reprogram my VCR and take off the daily 3-4 on CBS. WOW, been most of my life watching this show. The light is off, it is dark.

    You know what would have been cool for Alan's funeral?
    Rev. Rutledge's great grandson, Rev. Rutledge, who happens to be in the nearby town of Five Points to officiate Alan's funeral.

    I forgot all about Alan Michael. He should have come back.

    Yeah that was kind of weird that they never even mentioned him,like he never even existed.I almost forgot about Amanda, she hasn't been mentioned in years either. He was Alan's son and he had so many storylines in the past, he should not have been overlooked. It would have also been nice to mention Alex's son Nick. They might have mentioned visting him on her trip with Fletcher Reed. I guess we could'nt have it all in so little time. I wish also that they would have given a shout out to Roger Thorpe, my favorite character for so many years. The last I heard from him he had married Alan's sister?daughter? I don't remember exactly and left town was that Amanda or someone else? Can anyone refresh my memory?

    I wish they would have read a will. I wonder if he left money for the family of the guy that took his place in the war? I wish Harley sent Zack back to say good bye to his Grandpa. Since Zack was born before James, he could have came back by himself.

    Well, no one could fulfill Roger's shoes. The writer's tried but we fans would not take the new Roger. He married Amanda (gosh remember all that hair?) and they moved to Europe or California - can't remember which to take over Spaulding Enterprise there. Amanda was suspose to be Alan's sister but later it was revealed that she was Alan's daughter? Something to do Brandon (Alan's father) sleeping with Alan's wife (don't remember which one that was supose to be) or some such Soap Writers twisted S/L.

    He was a wonderful actor and we all missed him so much that his role could not be filled. I think they tried three different actors and just did not work.
