That was very moving. I'm glad she said nice things about him, and gave us a little glimpse of some good times they shared. She has a forgiving soul. .
I just want you here, I just want you near me baby, cause I'm scared I'll cry, I love you like crazy.

Thanks Latin! When I saw this my heart went out to Nona Gaye. Whatever went on between her and Prince was very deep and you can still feel the hurt she experienced.

Good to hear that she still has kind thoughts regarding him, considering what happened between them. She speaks very respectfully of him and it made me like her even more than I already did.

I knew about Nona way before she hooked up with Prince because I read David Ritz´s Marvin Gaye biography "Divided Soul", and it gave me a better understanding of Nona´s past, how she grew up and it also helped me understand the lyrics to the Prince-penned song "Snowman" much better.

For quite a few years I hadn´t heard or read anything about Nona, even though I looked her up on Google every now and then. Good to see that she seems to be doing ok.

She was part of his life when he was still not married to Mayte. From what I understood both were given the impression that they were the main and maybe only girl. Anna was in his life around this time also. They were all very young.

The Twinz said he was very funny and not that shy if you knew him. Seems that everyone had the same few things to say.

Amazing! You can truly hear the emotions in her voice. I hope she will cherish her memories of her and Prince forever.

He met her when she was 17 and he was introduced to her by her mom Jan who he was friends with.

Same happened with Marianne in Rio, only that she was 16. She was there with her mom too.

Many were 17 when first meeting P.

There were some more at that time in the 90s.

I like your signature, by the way. Anais Nin - you know that Henry Miller was one of P's role models..

Nona's mother, Janis Gaye (nee Hunter), also met her father, Marvin Gaye, when she was 17-years-old. At the time, he was working on his Let's Get it On album.

I´m a big fan of Henry and Anais , too. But...when did Prince ever mention Henry Miller?

Thanks for posting. heart

Nona was at the Celebration this past April. I saw a photo of her with a P fan

at the Chanhassen Mural. This fan had no idea who Nona was.

--Remember he met her when she was 17 it does not mean he romantically involved with her at the time. He scooped these young ladies out and waited for them to turn 18.
He was a true womanizer.
