Gladys Smith 1913 – 2005 Gladys Smith, my paternal grandmother, passed away on Friday April 29th and the funeral was last Friday. I’m really glad I made a special effort to go and see her at lunchtime the Thursday before. I was a bit taken aback when I saw her first but I wasn’t a bit surprised when I got the phonecall on Friday to tell me that she had passed away.
She was 92 and always looked on the bright side of life. She never stopped trying out new things and she always looked really smart. She was always interested in everything we did. She loved Garman and was so pleased to have met her first 3 great grandchildren. I have her to thank for being petite and it was she who first said to me, “You are not small, you are petite”
Her funeral service was perfect and we were all especially moved by her friend Pat’s eulogy.
