On the front of this photo that my mom gave to my dad soon after they met, she decorously wrote “With all good wishes from your friend, Gloria.” All across the back, my father rhapsodized in blue fountain pen ink, “She is the one!!!!” She was 25 years old in this picture, and working as a postmistress in Spanish Town, where Daddy was clerk of the courts. Three years later, in lieu of an engagement ring that he couldn't afford, my dad presented the love of his life with his acceptance letter to Lincoln's Inn Law College in London, and asked her to accompany him to England as his wife. Today our gracious Lady Gloria would turn 100 years old. Happy birthday in heaven Mommy. You are so loved.
