If they’re going to show the ornament hanging at Alice’s that means they still have the set. Since Francis Reed probably won’t be coming back due to health issues why couldn’t they have a story where she had to go to an assisted living facility or to live with other relatives due to age and failing health. Then have one of the younger family members move into and take over the house. Nathan perhaps. Have Shawn and Belle come back and live there. David Banning or Mike Horton come back. Nick gets out of prison and moves in there. Once Bo finally kicks Hope to the curb for good she could move in there.
OH the possiblities.
