A member of the fraternity has come forward to explain that they gifted Lalah’s mother with the hat at a recent concert.
Last night at the Bethesda Blues and Supper Club, I proudly gave the late Brother Donny Hathaway’s wife my Alpha hat.
I wore it to the concert to honor her husband and father of Lalah Hathaway. When I sa [sic] the pridw [sic] the picture of Lalah wearing the hat, I was deeply moved. I could see the pride in her eyes and the love for her father all over her face. She was also showing love for her father’s fraternity and not pretending to be a member.
When I was about 10 years old, I remember proudly wearing my father’s USMC cap to school because I was so proud that he had served in the Corp during World II Was I pretendin [sic] to be a Marine? Of course not! Just showing pride and love for my father. That is what Ms. Hathaway was showing, and we should love her for it not make it seem as if she has done something wrong. Love is never wrong. Carol Louis Lawrence, 1984 ’06..
