  • In the late 70’s my company developed a fragrance with Gloria called Vanderbilt. It was my job to organize PR tours to department stores to promote the fragrance. Gloria w as a trooper on these trips. In store appearnces, press interviews and answering questions from store customers. A tiring and mostly boring experience for her.
    She was slways ready, always charming and, on the many occasions we travelled and dined together a great deal of fun. Her first questions to me when we would meet after pauses in the schedule were tinquire about my family and, particularly about my two young sons. It was only after Carter’s tragic death that I realized the significance and poignancy of of these concerns. On a lighter note, Gloria volunteered to bring a jug of gumbo back from New Orleans for a pal of mine which she presented to him at 1am that same day. I loved the time spent with her. She shared family stories and listened to mine. I will always remember that time with her as very special. A very great lady who I was honored to call friend.
