Goodbye, Gladys.

Today my great grandmother, Gladys passed away. She was 97 years old. For the last few days she was in the ICU because she had pneumonia and congestive heart failure. It was just her time to go, and she was ready. She told her daughter, "Enough is enough". This is a 5 Generations picture that was taken in January in Georgia. My Mother and I in the back, my grandmother holding my daughter, Violet, and my great grandmother to her left. R.I.P, Grandma Gladys. You were such a fantastic lady. </3

Goodbye, Gladys.

    What a great photo! I'm sorry for your loss. We have a similar photo but it's with my dad, my grandma, my great grandma, my oldest daughter and me.

      Thank you everyone. I'm just glad I got to see her one last time and she got to meet Violet. She did have a long life, haha! And she was a very strong woman, beating cancer, enduring a physically abusive husband (who died a long time ago), being alive through the death of her own children, and many other things. She was also very full of life and spunky! One of my favorite memories of her was when we went out to eat and she threw a sugar packet at my brother because he was being a grump, lol! She said that the key to a good, long life was to work hard. I'll never forget her. :")

        I take comfort in the fact that she announced she was ready. At least she wasn't ripped away in some horrible accident, you know? She got to go peacefully with her loved ones around her. That's the best way.
