The Grand Dame
I have waited awhile to comment on this but you knew that I would at some time.
The Grand Dame has a new owner and I know that he will be good to her. She will retain her president, who is a good man and she has flourished under his care. Tho, I can say that I have not enjoyed the changes to her during the Gaylord ownership but we all, as we get older, have to do things to keep up our appearances. The Grand Dame is no different.
She has sat overlooking her domain with quiet dignity. She has welcomed all who have taken shelter under her wings. She has given nourishment to the body and souls of all that have sought her out. Her calmness and beauty added to their stay.
And under her new owner she will continue to do so. I love The Grand Dame and will always love her. She is a part of my soul, I feel her heartbeat everytime I visit her. And I will continue to do so.
I know Mr. Anschutz will take good care of this jewel and I wish The Grand Dame the very best under his ownership.
