Years Later

When I was eight years old in July 1981, I woke up early to watch Charles & Diana’s wedding on T.V. Today, Baby S. and I watched coverage of Diana’s memorial service while he ate his breakfast.

Princess Diana was a huge influence on me for many years; she was probably the only “idol” I ever had, as all my friends and family know. I was lucky enough to meet her several times (too long a story to recount here); the last time I saw her in person was here in New York in June 1997, just a few months before her death. I actually have some great photos I took of her, but this was pre-digital cameras so I don’t have them online.

Let me direct you this morning to read about how Diana’s charity work continues to this day. It’s pretty impressive.
