In memory of one of America’s treasured gifts… called home.

 

Aretha Franklin will always be “Lady Soul” in my mind, the first Lady… “Queen of Soul” and to her memory and those affected by her heart touching passion for music. Want what you give… and let it be as transformative as “Respect” itself!

 

 

The song was written by Otis Redding… one to raise the bar for all of us- something to think about in our current day and time… a timeless quality to the very words. This is also how I feel from hearing of Aretha’s passing… touched! My heart goes out to all her friends and family.

Here is another two for the memory of Aretha’s gift to all of us… her voice and friendship as an ambassador. There is some sadness in knowing she left no will behind.
