Aretha Franklin, aka The Queen of Soul died yesterday. What a gifted woman she was. She had a soaring voice, honed in her church choir as a child, and was a fine pianist as well. Remembrances abound, not surprising given her wide appeal and range of accomplishments. Many Grammys for her singing, performing at the inaugurations of Presidents Clinton and Obama, receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from George Bush, Kennedy Honors, etc, etc. I won’t go into much here, simply say thank you, and I appreciate all of your hard work. You have been gift to the world, and you have my respect.
