The key t o Christ­mas


Af­ter los­ing her beloved daugh­ter, Caron Keat­ing, to breast can­cer in 2004, ev­ery­thing changed, in­clud­ing Christ­mas. Glo­ria had never spent the fes­tive sea­son away from Caron, and had no idea how to ap­proach it with­out her. It was her close friend, singer Cliff Richard, who gave Glo­ria the key. She ex­plains, ‘He asked me if Caron liked Christ­mas, and I said, “Yes, she adored it.” He said, “OK, why don’t you go big­ger and bet­ter for Caron and her boys?” ‘And I thought, “Yes, why don’t I?” So, that year, in­stead of one tree, we had five – ev­ery­thing was full of joy. And that’s how I’ve ap­proached Christ­mas ever since!’

Caron loved this time of year, too
