When I met Fuller Gordy I had been a longtime fan of Motown, a great tradition in music given to us from a great family. Having met a few Gordy's through the years knowing Iris has been a special gift to my life. I met Mrs. Gordy the day after Christmas and got to tell her how special Iris is and her husband was to me. I thank GOD we could meet. As we pray for you family let us rejoice for her well lived life and reunion with her maker. To GOD be the glory.
