Princess Diana

Each Labor Day weekend I always think of Princess Diana because I remember so vividly the Labor Day weekend in 1997 when the world was shocked at her death in the car accident on August 31, 1997. She had just turned 36 years old on July 1st. She would be 45 years old if she were still alive.

I was a fan of Princess Diana mainly because both of my daughters were. On Diana's big wedding day my daughters set their alarm clock to get up at 4 a.m. to watch the wedding on TV taking place in England.

This is a Franklin Mint doll, and is 17 inches tall. She has on the dress she called her Elvis Dress! It has hundreds of pearls hand-sewn on the dress and jacket.

I still miss her. I think she did a lot of good in her short lifetime.

I was also an admirer of Princess Diana. Like your daughter's, I set my alarm so I could watch the wedding 'live' on TV as well. How sad I was when the news came out of her death. I think I cried most of the day --- it was sobering. My sons are just a little younger than hers, and I felt so sorry for those young boys, as losing a mother would be very tough.
