During my time at my mom’s house, my play aunt Gloria came to call Aunt Gloria and her daughter Kim have always been a source of inspiration for me and for my family. They look just alike, both are energetic and successful. Aunt Gloria as an educator, sorority maven and member of the National Council of Negro Women and Kim as a corporate executive, mom and now consultant. Seems during her Bermuda childhood Aunt Gloria played with Elizabeth soon to be future Queen of England. She and HER mother also had two private audiences with the Queen. Everyday I think of the marvelous women friends and lady friends I’ve helped or who have helped me along the way and feel truly blessed. Of course as many of you know CCL is also royalty as are Jean Claude and Koko ..and the late great Roxie the other queen.
