The Passing of a Giant (January 25, 1950–September 28, 2016)

Most people remember The Women Of Brewster Place. I remember Mama Day. It was the first book I loved reading so much that when I got to the last page I instinctively  turned back to page one to began the journey all over again. I even wrote her a fan letter and I never write fan letters…except once to Nikki Giovanni…alright twice to Nikki but she always writes back on beautiful stationary.51QjAAROLBL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_ Anyway, this woman had a wonderful talent for creating characters that were so vivid and real they felt like relatives.  She felt like a relative talking to me in the kitchen at Thanksgiving.  I am heartbroken that there will be no new stories by Gloria Naylor in my life. Peaceful journey home sweet sister.  Peaceful journey home.
