So sad to hear about the passing of #peggymckay. She was fierce & firey with the heart of a lion yet could be as soft as a petal. I always looked forward to our scenes together, eager to see what kind of spontaneous thing she’d do. She was loved & adored & will be missed.#days pic.twitter.com/0NmVn8hMbP

Always a classy lady our Emmy winning Peggy McCay who cared about her craft, her fellow actors and the Life of Days. She reigned well in this most pressured profession of Daytime. pic.twitter.com/27EGzNkRWi
