My aunt Terry was like a second mother to me and a defining personality in my life and very much helped me to become who I am today. She passed away this week. A lot of celebrities passed away recently, in bunches as they usually seem to do. Oddly enough, I like to think of Titi Terry as one of a celebrity too. To me, she was a star, an exotic presence, the archetypal crazy aunt who would visit in a whirlwind of energy, manic laughter, malt liquor, and smoke. Buenas noches, Terry.
