Gone, Never Forgotten—Gloria Jean Murrell B.K.A Granny
Granny and My Husband Scott on my wedding day
My Granny was a fiesty lady, she loved to go to church every Sunday, loved to watch Young & The Restless, Jeporady, Wheel of Fortune, Price is Right, Perry Mason and Murder She Wrote (she would kill me if I left that out). My Granny loved to take the grand kids outside to play games like “Mother May I”, “Red light, Green Light”! She loved playing “Trouble”. She taught every one of her Grandchildren how to play cards, her favorite card game was UNO.
She taught me that family was important she came to every event anyone had, no compliants. Granny taught me how to be honest, even if they do hurt someone else but not to be harsh or cruel about it; she could be that way at times. Granny taught me how to forgive and forget; something she didn’t learn how to do until her last days. Granny taught me how to love my child unconditional… so when they grow up… never call, never visit or ackknowlge me on Mother’s Day or my Birthday to dust it off; maybe one day they would remember and even if they don’t oh well. I’ll cry and be fine the next day.
My Granny taught me not to let age stop you, at 75 years old, she still babysat Niya (newborn), went on cruise’s, visited family in other states, drove 80 miles an hr in a 45 mile an hr road, still visited the sick in the hospitals, could out run most of us, and even though she was 75 years old, she acted as if she was 60. Granny made some of the best sweet tea and dinner rolls I have ever tasted; before being DX with diabetes…lol her Tea would have sent me into a diabetic comma…lol
Losing my Granny taught me to call my Mother everyday; I do that anyway, she would kill me if I didn’t. Tomorrow isn’t promised, Say I love you, live a fruitful life, and to take plenty of pictures (she hated to do that)…I love you Granny…
